Living in Haifa, I just love visiting Jerusalem, for sure one of the nicest cities in the world. Many times I brought groups for a daily tour (wether walking or biking) and my prefered starting point is Mount of Olives. From the Gandhi lookout point, you can explain the group what the itinerary will be during the whole day. The 180 deg. landscape view with the old city and the Temple Mount just in front of you is just breathaking, not only for the new visitor but also for a vet like me. The jewish and moslem cemetries can be seen from here and you can have a short camel ride with the old city at the background. If you can spend some 2-3 hours at the area, i reccomend the churches on the top of Mount of Olives, and you can walk down through a serpentine road down to the Gethsemane gardens and church followed by a visit to the Grotto church. Just great.
