Detailed itinerary

Enjoy a seamless pick-up service from Ashdod or Haifa port, where your guide will be readily waiting for you at the main meeting deck. Look for a personalized sign with your name, ensuring easy identification after passing through immigration control for a hassle-free start to your private tour.

Explore Jerusalem on a special private tour, discovering the holiest sites. Begin your private tour from Mount of Olives, where you can see the Old CityTemple Mount, and the Golden Dome of the Rock.

Imagine standing where Jesus stood over two thousand years ago. Visit the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations, which has a beautiful golden front. Inside, you’ll find the Rock of Agony, where it’s believed Jesus prayed the night before he was crucified.

Go through the Old City walls and enter through an old gate. Walk through the Jewish Quarter to reach the Western Wall, the only part left from the Second Temple that was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. At the Wailing Wall, also known as the Western Wall or Kotel, you’ll have the chance to take part in a tradition that spans centuries. Placing a note in the Wailing Wall involves inscribing your prayers, hopes, or personal messages on pieces of paper and tucking them into the ancient stones. This time-honored practice offers a unique opportunity to connect with history and spirituality, as your notes become part of a tradition that has endured through the ages. 

Proceed to Muslim Quarter, explore the colorful Old City market, and visit the Christian Quarter. Walk along the Via Dolorosa  the path that Jesus walked, carrying his Cross, on the way to his crucifixion, follow the Stations of the Cross ending at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, identified as the place of the crucifixion and the Tomb of Jesus of Nazareth. Discover the significant religious sites housed within the church, such as the Aedicule and Golgotha. Each site tells a part of the profound story of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial, providing a unique opportunity for exploration and reflection. Depending on the timing of your visit, you may have the chance to observe or participate in religious ceremonies conducted by the diverse Christian denominations that share this revered space. This adds a dynamic and cultural dimension to the visit. 

Continue to Mount Zion, the site of the Tomb of King David and the Room of the Last SupperThe Tomb of King David is one of the most sacred sites for the Jews. The bible mentions that King David was buried in the City of David, which is located at the foot of the Temple Mount. Located on an upper floor of King David’s Tomb, the Room of the Last Supper, also called The Cenacle, is considered one of the holiest sites for Christianity in Jerusalem, since according to the tradition, it was the place where the last supper took place. 

The second part of the private tour we proceed to Bethlehem.

Drive towards Bethlehem via the Nativity Circle and visit Bethlehem’s Manger Square, named after the manger Jesus was born in. Manger Square is home to the Church of the Nativity, one of the world’s oldest standing churches still functioning to this day.

We will visit the main Basilica of the Nativity, designed in the typical Roman-style and constructed on the ruins of its predecessor in 565 AD, as well as the Catholic Church of St. Catherine, adjoining the Basilica of the Nativity.

Underneath the Church stands the Grotto of the Nativity, the cave in which Jesus was born, the exact spot of birth is marked by a 14-pointed star of silver set into the floor. We also visit the nearby Milk Grotto, where Mary nursed her son. A Franciscan Chapel is built above the Milk Grotto.

Following the tour, a convenient return transfer will be arranged to return you to the port, aligning with your ship’s departure schedule. Rest assured, our commitment ensures you not only enjoy the best possible experience but also guarantees your timely return to the Ashdod or Haifa port.

Wonderful tour with Avi. Favorite stop was the Sea of Galilee. Avi was wonderful with our group and made the tour fit our requests. We were able to stay away from most large crowds and navigate sites as slowly or quickly as we wanted. Highly recommend this tour.

This company is fantastic. They worked with us to accommodate our group and add on other activities. And Benjamin was the best driver! He was prompt and knowledgeable and fun. We loved the Jeep ride through the Judean desert and the Dead Sea. I highly recommend! My girls and husband are still thanking me for the highlight of our trip!

Thanks to Enrique, our truly wonderful guide, and to Benjamin of Compass for creating the private tour package, our group of six, over-55 year olds had an exceptional experience seeing Israel and also Petra and Wadi Rum in Jordan. There was enough flexibility each day where we were able to learn much history, take breaks, shoot photos, avoid long lines and even make extra stops that we requested such as markets and other interest spots. I would choose Compass and Enrique again and recommend them to my family and friends.

We have just completed a private tour for a week with Compass and would highly recommend company services to anyone contemplating either a short or longer visit to Israel. Our guide Saul knew how to manage the group, with his humour, knowledge, patience and attention to the varying ages and interests. Some of us had visited Israel many times before but he kept us engaged and we continued to learn new facts particularly through his stories and anecdotes. Highly recommend Compass
