Riding through the streets of the Old City of Jerusalem
under the cloak of darkness is not only exhilarating, it’s an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
When the sun sets on Jerusalem the Old City starts to go to sleep. The churches, synagogues, and mosques quieten; the stalls in the bizarre lower their shutters. Families close their front doors, and students retire to their quarters. The hustle and bustle that characterizes the alleyways of the Old City in the daytime is notably absent allowing you to hear a loaded silence filled with the secrets that the ancient stones can not tell during the daylight hours.
Our tour begins in the modern city, exploring some of the historic sites relating to the development of Jerusalem. We then delve into the warren of alleyways that make up the Old City where your guide will masterfully lead you through the empty streets passing the Church of the Holy Sepulchre
, the Christian Quarter, the Jewish Quarter
and Mount Zion
, for a truly magical experience.
Along the way you will make various stops at points of interest where you guide will explain the significance of the site you are looking at using stories, and anecdotes, as well as their vast knowledge of the history of Jerusalem.
