Jerusalem and Dead Sea 1 day tour from Taba

Location: Taba, South Sinai, Egypt.
You will be picked up from your hotel in an air conditioned bus and will drive to Taba border. You will cross the border on foot where you will be joined by your guide and will join another bus to begin your tour. The crossing at the border can take some time due to it being quite small and it can become crowded at times.

We will start from Eilat and drive along the Arava Valley toward the Dead Sea, the deepest point on earth; which is more than 400 meters below sea level.

We will enjoy the marvelous experience of floating (not swimming) in its unique water, which contains an unusual amount of healthy minerals. Also we can shop and explore the Dead Sea's natural beauty products such as salts, mud, lotions and facial masks.

Then we will ascend to the Holy City, Jerusalem. On the way to Jerusalem we will see Qumran Site (where the Dead Sea scrolls were found), the Judean Valle and Jericho where we can see some nomadic Bedouin tribes along the road through Judean Desert. Reaching Jerusalem we start with a panoramic view from the Mount of Olives a good place for an introduction to the city and its history.

We drive to the city of Bethlehem where we will visit the Church of Nativity which is the central pilgrimage destination for all Christians because Jesus Christ was born there. In Bethlehem we will shop at the souvenir shops and enjoy a Middle Eastern meal with free drink.

Then we will head back to Jerusalem to see the Wailing Wall, which represents the last remnants of the Jewish Temple and continue through the "Way of Suffering" “Via Del Arosa” which leads us to The Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where according to Christian tradition Jesus was crucified and buried.
