Jerusalem Tours:
Visit Jerusalem, the Modern City

Jerusalem tours do more than conjure up visions of a long distant past. 



There is a whole vibrant, cosmopolitan, modern city to discover, so make sure you also sample some of the city's many cultural treasures, fun activities, quaint neighborhoods and modern history.

Stroll down Ben Yehuda Street on a Saturday night. Enjoy the street performers at the Arlov Mamilla Mall. Search out all the amazing trompe l'oeuil murals that decorate the city. Partake of Jerusalem entertainment - festivals and fairs of every kind.

Explore our great parks. Drink in the panoramic view of Jerusalem at the Haas Promenade. And then discover some more!
