The Old City in Jerusalem is surrounded by 500 years old Ottoman walls. Just outside of the southern wall on a tiny low hill awaits for you - Ancient Jerusalem, also known as "The City of David". On this tour, we will explore the archeological excavations and the biblical text, we will hear about the ancient Habiru or Hebrews that bothered the city's ancient population, the Jebusites, about the Conquest of Jerusalem by King David, about the Assyrian siege of Jerusalem in the days of King Hezekiah and about the Siloam pool where Jesus healed the blind man. *Signal is high in most places, if it breaks during the walk please be patient. *We won't enter the underground water system due to lack of signal

Itamar is amazing, no, I meant AMAZING. Creative, knowledgeable, articulated, versatile, has and follows his script and improvises along the way. Politically correct, smart answers to charged difficult questions. The best guide among a handful of great Heygo tour guides. Recommended? Well, you do the math.
