“Living History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is an experience that should not be missed. From the Via Dolorosa (the street Jesus walked with the cross), to the Al Aqsa Mosque (where Mohammed went up to heaven) to the Wailing Wall, the Old City has ait all. These religious sites (and sights) are a marvel to behold. I am not religious, but you cannot fail to be impressed.

The bustling markets of the Muslim Quarter to the new Jewish Quarter are fun - but get ready to haggle!

Take a journey back in time about 4,000 years and walk through the maze and fascination of the old city. Truly and amazing experience.

“Clock Stopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Hebron was a surreal experience. The street kids are a bit naughty, so keep your valuables safe. Loved the Mount of Olives. Stock up as much of the Dead Sea products as possible as it's cheap and the variety and brands are endless. Take a scarf with as you won't be allowed to greet the place Jesus was born.
