“Significant place for a pilgrim”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I stood on the Mount of Olives with 950 others on a recent God Tv tour - it was awesome looking out across Jersualem & brought the bible alive!

“unbelievable view”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Travelled march 2012.
Fantastic.
One of the highlights of the trip.
So amazing to see all 3 religions holy monuments in such close proximity, the view is amazing, if you like camels you can ride camels there.
If you are religious it is a great opportunity to see the holy sites in all their splendour.

“It was here that I received some important learning...”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Because of the current situation there, there are Middle East professors eager to give tours and lectures for tips. It was fascinating. I was able to confirm all of my notes on my first visit with scholars and with scholarly writings. Very moving.
My son loved the camel ride on our last visit! :)

“GORGEOUS VIEWS!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

It's a nice walk from the Western (Wailing) Wall. Make sure to check out the ancient areas prior to the top of the MOUNT.

Lovely views of the city.
