Description
If you don't have time to take more than one Jerusalem Tour, take this combined tour of the Jerusalem Old City and the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. It's a full Jerusalem Old City Tour, followed by driving through the New City of Jerusalem past some of its main sights to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. 

Start the day at the Mount of Olives.Your attraction-packed day will start with a stunning viewpoint to get an appreciation for the whole of Jerusalem (Old City and New), its architecture and beauty, as well as getting an understanding of the different parts of Jerusalem and the controversy surrounding them. Your next activity will be a walking tour of the Old City of Jerusalem . Only 0.35 square miles (0.9 square km) in size, and therefore ideally suited for a walking tour, the Jerusalem Old City has more to offer from a religious and historical perspective than almost any other city in the world. 

In this Old City Tour, see the Wailing Wall, Mount Zion, Via Dolorosa, Cardo and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre among other sites. In the afternoon see some of Jerusalem's New City on the way to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum and Memorial which is the official Israel Holocaust Museum. See the exhibitions and relics from this painful period of history, and see how Israeli society has attempted to come to terms with these terrible events. 

Please note: 
On Saturdays and Jewish holidays, instead of Yad Vashem, you will visit Ein Karem, the neighbourhood in the southwest part of Jerusalem. Ein Karem is also known as birthplace of John the Baptist. Get to know this unique and picturesque neighbourhood, stopping by Mary's spring and continue to the Church of Saint John the Baptist.
