An amazing time. So many places to go and things to do! I think I could stay 6 months and not experience all Jerusalem has to offer.

By yourself or by quide, walking in the old city is to say the least memorable and thought provoking. Each trour brings it's own nuances and expriences. Be it a rampart, night or religious tour or a lonely menaader..they all great

Old Jerusalem is an incredible place to visit! I didn't anticipate the wow factor before I got here. All the market stall lined along the streets mingled with sacred places creates such a diverse experience. I came with an open mind about the whole religion...More

Awesome place to discover roots of my faith. The markets for shopping are so much fun. The people will barter with you. They are very friendly & many of them can speak English. The food is interesting to try & most of it very tasty.

Church of Holly sepulcre is a must see if you are ever in Israel. The markets are interesting but be ready to haggle heavily. The first price is always about 5 times more than what you can end up paying. Backpac: $50, no, too much,...More
