DAY 3: Tuesday, June 5th – Jerusalem:
In the Morning join our Gay Bus Tour and depart Tel Aviv to Israel’s Capital City: Jerusalem.
What has not already been said about the holiest city in the world, the city that has been reunited? The eternal city, first built thousands of years ago, whose history can be heard in the whispering of the wind along the walls, where every stone tells a wondrous story of a city that has drawn millions of faithful pilgrims for thousands of years. Such is Jerusalem, the only city in the world that has 70 names of love and yearning, the city that in old maps appears at the center of the world and is still adored.
Start with Mishkenot Sha’ananim
(in Hebrew- Peaceful Habitation) and ‘Yemin Moshe’
– the groundbreaking, first Jewish neighborhoods to be built outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, on a hill directly across from Mount Zion.
‘Yemin Moshe’ neighborhood, named after Moshe Montefiore, was abandoned during the Independence War. However, after the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967, the neighborhood became a home to academics, writers and artists.
The iconic, famous windmill, still standing in Mishkenot Sha'ananim neighborhood today, was the first factory established outside of the walls. Montefiore founded the mill to provide cheap flour to the neighborhoods population.
In our modern time, these neighborhoods are a home for galleries, restaurants, cafes, as well as the Jerusalem Music Center. They have become a home for artists and intellectuals.
Continue to Mount Zion
and visit King David's tomb
, the Room of Last Supper
and the Dormition Abbey
and before entering to the Old City
through Zion Gate and on to the Jewish Quarter
. Together we tour the recently excavated and restored Roman Cardo
once the ancient Roman road at the heart of the city.
Our route will lead us to the Western Wall
, Judaism’s holiest site and the last remnant of the Second Temple. For the grand finale, we make our way to the Christian Quarter
and walk along the Via Dolorosa
to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher
as we join pilgrims from around the world, revering the Tomb of Jesus Christ.

DAY 5: Thursday, June 7th – Masada & the Dead Sea:
After delicious breakfast at the hotel, join Andrew Christian and the Trophy boys for a day trip to the lowest point on earth: the Dead Sea.
Start the tour in the famous mountain fortress of Masada
. The magnificent fortress of Masada was built in the year 30 BCE by King Herod, whose architectural feats have left their mark throughout Israel. At the beginning of the great revolt against Rome in the year 68 CE, Masada was conquered by a group of Jewish zealots, and Masada became their last stronghold. In the year 72, the Romans besieged Masada and succeeded in reaching the steep fortress after constructing a huge earthen ramp on its western side. In the year 73, the 960 Jewish zealots living at the top of Masada chose to commit suicide rather than to fall into the hands of the Romans alive. Their deeds left behind a saga of courage, heroism, and martyrdom.
Continue to Ein Bokek - Dead Sea Resort to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch and spend the afternoon enjoying the buoyant therapeutic waters and world famous rejuvenating mud of this mineral-rich sea, the largest all natural spa in the world, on a private beach provided solely for the participants.
