HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit Jerusalem's world famous religious and historic landmarks
  • See the Old City, Temple Mount & the Second Temple
  • Travel in comfort with our air conditioned vehicle
  • See artefacts documenting the discrimination & persecution of Jews in Yad Vashem
Located in the Judaean Mountains, with the Mediterranean on the one side and the Dead Sea on the other, Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and holds a special significance for the followers of three major Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Join us on this ten-hour, guided tour to see the major highlights of this city. Meet your private tour guide at your hotel or accommodation in the city and get into our comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. As you stand above the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives, you will see the Old City; the Temple Mount, where once stood Solomon’s Temple that was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE; and the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. Below you is the Garden of Gethsemane, the Church of All Nations and the Kidron Valley with its ancient Jewish burial tombs.

Entering into the Old City via the Zion Gate, you will pass through the Armenian Quarter en route to the Jewish Quarter and the 1500-year-old Byzantine Cardo. Partially destroyed and unused during the Muslim conquest, this thoroughfare briefly had a new lease of life during the Crusade period.

Stop at Kotel, the Western Wall where Jews have prayed since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. Built by King Herod, the wall enclosed the Temple Mount area. The Via Dolorosa, also known as the Way of the Cross, is the route many pilgrims follow on their way to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which was built on the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and his burial tomb. Although the Byzantine church was partially destroyed during Persian and Muslim conquests, the rebuilt and redesigned Crusader Church preserves much of the earlier church.

Exit the Old City via the market and Jaffa Gate for a short tour of the new city. A visit to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum, reveals artefacts and photographs documenting the discrimination, persecution and finally the annihilation of Jewish communities across Europe. It also honours those righteous among the nations who risked their lives while trying to save Jews.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • How to plan an Asia tour?

    Asia is a relatively large continent, so there are a wide variety of destinations to explore. Therefore, if you are planning a multi-country trip to Asia, the first thing you need to prepare is the list of countries you are interested in along with your starting and ending points. You would also need to decide on the best time for your trip depending on seasonal variations that affect each country. 

    After finalizing when and where to travel in Asia, you should make arrangements for all the necessary travel documents. These would include visas, insurances, Covid-19 test reports, vaccine cards, and so on.

     

  • Which countries should I visit in Asia?

    Asia has more than enough destinations to meet every traveler’s needs and desires. If you are into adventure, look no further than the mighty Himalayas. Go on an exhilarating hike to the base camp of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, or head for the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh instead. Thailand, with its blend of dazzling nightlife, rich history, and striking monuments, is the perfect destination not just for those who wish to let their hair down but also for travelers looking forward to being part of a memorable cultural experience. 

    Go on a tour to Cambodia, home to the monumental Angkor Wat, if you are into off-the-beaten-path destinations, or choose a Japan tour if you wish to discover how traditions and modernity can be seamlessly blended. The Maldives, with its numerous islands and beaches, is sure to provide you with countless opportunities to kick back on sandy stretches, swim in turquoise waters, and go island-hopping, while the rainforests of Malaysia and Indonesia are a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. 

     

  • What country in Asia is fluent in English?

    English is a widely spoken language in Asia, which means that you would not have much difficulty conversing with locals during your trip. Singapore ranks the highest in terms of its proficiency in the English language. The Philippines comes second, followed by Malaysia. Other countries where you will not face much trouble if you can speak English are South Korea, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, China, Vietnam, and Indonesia. 

    You will find that English is part of life of a section of the population in all these countries. They have road signs in English (along with those in their native languages) as well as English newspapers. Public announcements are often translated into English in these countries, and it is not difficult to come across store banners and product labels written in the language. In addition to all this, locals are also accustomed to tourists, which means they can at least carry out basic conversations in the language. 

    However, please keep in mind that it is the urban population in the continent that has had the most exposure to the language and is better at communicating in it. The more you travel to the countryside, the fewer English speakers you will meet.  

     

  • How much does an Asia tour cost? What is the cheapest country to travel to in Asia?

    There are several factors that determine the amount of money you will spend during your Asia tour. These include the countries you wish to visit, the length of your trip, the type of tour you have chosen (group, private, luxury and budget) as well as other expenses like insurance, visas, and transportation. 

    Laos is probably the cheapest destination in Asia, with an average daily expense of USD 23 per person. India is yet another budget-friendly destination in the region when it comes to foreigners. Expect to spend between USD 35 to USD 40 per person, per day if you are a mid-range traveler. The average daily expense in Cambodia is slightly higher, at USD 50 per person. Japan and Singapore, on the other hand, are some of the most expensive destinations on the planet. On average, travelers should expect to shell out USD 130 dollars per person, per day while in these countries.
