Into the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem | A Mini Walking Tour

Jerusalem is the holiest place for the Jewish people. On this mini walking tour, we’ll visit the Jewish Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem and learn the basics of Judaism. We’ll talk about the history of the Jewish settlement in Jerusalem, visit the main sites of the Jewish Quarter, and even visit a synagogue. This tour is perfect for those who don’t know a lot about the Jewish people and want to get a bit familiar.

We’ll meet at Jaffa Gate and continue on foot to the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. We’ll begin with the history of the area on which the Jewish Quarter stands. Then, we’ll get familiar with some of the main traditions and rituals of Judaism. We’ll also visit one of the quarter’s synagogues, and of course, finish the tour at the Western Wall, the holiest place to the Jewish people.

Why join a mini tour?

Israel Walking Tour’s mini tour is a great opportunity to tour fascinating places with a professional guide AND in a small group! On my mini tours, you won’t feel crowded with tons of other people in the group. That’s because there will be only up to 6 participants on each tour. This is a perfect option for solo travelers or couples who want to explore Jerusalem with a guide but don’t have the budget for a completely private tour.
