In the morning, guests will be picked up in Tel Aviv at 7:15am and in Jerusalem at 8:30am. We will begin this exciting day with a panoramic view of the city of Jerusalem, both old and new, from atop the Mount of Olives. From here, we will be able to see the Temple Mount Esplanade and the entire old city. Then, we will continue to the Garden of Gethsemane, followed by the Armenian Quarter, where we will stop at the Wailing Wall. After strolling through the local bazaar, we will find ourselves in the Christian Quarter, following the Stations of the Cross while a professional guide explains the significance of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

On Saturdays, we will also visit the Cenacle, where the Last Supper was supposedly held, and David's Tomb. Afterward, we will drive to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.

Jerusalem - Masada - Dead Sea - Jerusalem (353 km)
Departing Jerusalem in the morning, we will descend into the Judean Desert by way of the Inn of the Good Samaritan, which houses the world's largest mosaic museum. After that, we will take a cable car up a mountain to explore the ancient fortress of Masada. Then, we will head out to the Dead Sea, passing Ein Gedi and Qumran. We will then enjoy some time to bask in the sun while we swim in the mineral rich Dead Sea. It is that covering oneself from head-to-toe in the natural, mineral-rich mud of the Dead Sea has incredible therapeutic qualities and will leave our skin feeling soft and fresh. Leaving the desert, we will return to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv at the end of the day, wrapping up this tour.

We are 2 seamen who are scheduled to sign off from the vessel in Hadera mid of may and are interested to Make a 2 day tour of Jeruzalem masada and death sea. The only problem is that we do not know exactly when we will leave the ship. This because we have to wait for our relievers and also weather has to be permitting as we need a boat to make the crew change.
Anyhow the tour we like to make will most likely be starting 16 or 17 of may. We will spent the night before the tour in Tel Aviv so if possible this will be the start position.
