Take a guided walk through the ancient city of Jerusalem, and absorb the thousands of years of history within its walls.
Although not truly walking tours, they did involve a good deal of walking at specific points, particularly visiting various churches connected to religious aspects with a lot of time standing, and walking surfaces are not always even. In some places it is required to go up and down stairs which are often narrow and not even to complete the tour. Many of the churches and other sites may be poorly lit or very dark. Several locations have large crowds visiting.

GTI met us just outside the pier, our guide took us first to an overlook of the city to get our bearings. I was surprised at how wooded and agrarian the countryside is in Israel. We then went to Bethlehem, through Palestinian territory. We picked up a Palestinian guide across the border. She stayed with us through the city. We were able to go into the crypt where the gold star is under the altar, the same star that started the Crusades. Amazing Church. Didn't see a lot else except a lovely spot for falafel lunch on the way back to Jerusalem. We went in through the east entrance to the Old City, followed the Via DelaRosso, ending at the Waling Wall. Amazing day hitting all the important Christian Sites.

The tour guide wasn't very good and the day was a rush because of the distance from the port. I'll have to go back! ;-)
