With an elevation of 826 m (2,710 ft) at Mount of Olives top, we will have a lookout over Jerusalem’s old city and the Judean desert.
This mountain is important to Jews and Christians and we will follow references about it in the bible.
On this guided tour we will walk through panoramic views of the different cultures, historical structures and more. Our main focus will be following Jesus footsteps at the Mount of olives and understanding the location as the Jewish necropolis through the different burial sites.
The Mount of Olives is first mentioned in the bible with David’s flight from Absalom (II Samuel 15:30). When looking on the mountain’s eastern and southern slopes we will see the very obvious 3000 years old, still active, Jewish cemetery, which dates back to the time of David.
The mountain top is decorated with churches, we will visit the traditional place for Jesus’s ascension to heaven from the mount of olives(Acts 1:9–12), the Pater Noster church where Jesus taught his disciples “the lord’s prayer”. After a short walk through Palm Sunday’s road we will be at the Dominus Flevit church which is traditionally thought as the location where Jesus wept over Jerusalem (Luke 19:41-44).
The last site for our visit would be the Garden of Gethsemane is where Jesus prayed on the night of His betrayal and arrest (Mark 14:32-50).
This Zoom meeting is guided by an Israeli licensed tour guide and open for Q&A.

Virtual tour of Caesarea, Caesarea Maritima, Israel. Very well prepared, excellent clear images, and very interesting. A nice experience ahead of an in-person visit! Definitely worth it to do a virtual overview, for large scale understanding of the site and history. Thank you! Hope to see you in person soon!
Jerusalem from yr armchair I had a very nice/ informative tour on Jerusalem. I clearly showed where the most important highlights are located and how they are connected. Great / fun to watch!
4th virtual tour In January 2020 i came to Israel with a group and Amit was our tour Guide. We all fell in love with him as his passion, knowledge and love for his home land was so evident in his tour. When i got home and Amit started doing the virtual tours, i knew i wanted to "go" back to beautiful Israel and learn more. Every vitrual tour i have taken has gotten better and better and Amit makes the virtual experience come alive. I can't wait till i come back to the Holy Land in 2022 and I hope Amit will be our guide again.
Interesting story The online tour about the history of Tel Aviv learns about the birth of Tel Aviv in a revealing way you don’t find in the usual touristic information sources. So I can really recommend this online tour.
Highly Recommended! During this time of social distancing, It is really great to interact with Amit, our tour guide, and the other people that have joined the virtual tour on Zoom. Amit is very knowledgeable, open to questions, and conversation about the places he shows in the tour. He tries to keep it to the hour and is willing to stay after if there are additional questions. He will set up private virtual tours as well if the times that are advertised do not fit in your schedule. I have attended all of his virtual tours and highly recommend ALL of them. It is a bargain at $12.50. I applaud his creativity in figuring out how to support his family during this time that all tour guides in Israel are unemployed. Visiting these places bring the Bible to life for me and I know it will for you too. Come check it out.
Very interesting tour Amit is a knowledgeable guide and he prepared a very interesting presentation. I discovered very surprising facts about Jerusalem. I recommend him. I'm sure is ready for a walking tour.
A good intro to Jerusalem I really wanted to visit Jerusalem and having a good background of the place is interesting. Amit guided us with this tour online and I learned new things about Jerusalem. Thank you, Amit!
Virtual Tour of Jaffa Amit did an excellent job. This virtual tour using the Zoom software platform was informative and entertaining. I'm sure that I would have given a better rating, but I had to leave before the tour was finished. My apologies to Amit.
Amazing Thank you so much for the tour it was amazing, loved the way you showed Jerusalem with all the maps and pictures. Very interesting andI would love to see more tours!
Not to be missed Great virtual tour. Very informative and was given by a very knowledgeable guide Amit Musaei. I'll be back for more.
