“EO tour”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

The Mt. of Olives provides an incredible view of Jerusalem. I think everyone should go there just to admire this beautiful city. The Mt. itself is very meaningful to Christians and taking the Palm Sunday walk from the top to the Garden of Gethsemane was special.

“an area, not a "site"”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

I liked that it is undisputed- fact not tradition.Many sites upon this Mount, Garden of Gethsemene, Church of All Nations, etc. Some semi-strenuous walking.

“First view of the Old City”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Were able to view the old city from the overlook and get our bearings of the major landmarks before walking the Palm Sunday route to the Garden of Gethsemane
