Jerusalem during Passover?

We are visiting Jerusalem during Passover this March. I have a few questions.

What sites would you recommend during the holiday. Also, is it possible to find a tour guide who would take us out during the holiday. We like off the beat and track. This is our third time to Jerusalem.

Thank you in advance for your advise

All sites will be crowded during the holiday as this is a peak tourist season - in addition to the fact that schools and many businesses are closed and people are on vacation. You need to be ready for the long lines and the fact that it is possible for a national park to close its gates early if it is crowded.

As far as guides, there are many guides who work during Passover, but it is getting quite late to find guides who are not yet all booked, if they are working.

You need to search for a private guide now. It is a very busy time of year.

Here is the site to start your search: goisrael.com/Tourism_Eng/Tourist%20Informati…

Since this is your third trip to Jerusalem, it is hard to recommend what to go and see. Have to assume you have seen most of the major sites on two trips.
