    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Jaffa Gate, Jaffa Road Omar Ibn Katab, Jerusalem Israel

    Meet your guide just outside the Jaffa Gate and get ready to go on a journey through Israel’s incredible life story.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Silwan Mosque, Ma'alot Ir David St, Jerusalem

    Explore the Silwan Necropolis, the most important ancient cemetery in Israel. Learn about the archaeological significance of this site, which holds the tomb of Pharaoh's Daughter and the tomb of the Royal Steward.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Hezekiah's Tunnel - Siloam Tunnel, Rehov Hashiloah City of David, Jerusalem Israel

    Explore Hezekiah’s Tunnel, an ancient water channel that was carved beneath the City of David, and the Warren's Shaft, believed to have allowed David to capture Jerusalem.
    Over the past 150 years, intense research has focused on this area and the rich history it holds. A mysterious reference in the Old Testament told of David’s capture of Jerusalem, now believed to have taken place through these tunnels. We'll take you back to the time of the First Temple, and even earlier, and show you Jerusalem’s first palace, where many believe King David himself resided.
