"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither, let my tongue cleave to my palate if I do not remember you, if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy." (Psalms 137, 5-7).
Jerusalem is the eternal city - the holiest city in the world - dating back 5000 years. Steeped in history and religion, with countless holy sites and where every stone tells a story, Jerusalem has been visited by millions of pilgrims throughout the millennia of its existence.

Jerusalem Private tours - Client's Testimonial:
"Traveling to different places has always been my hobby ever since my teenage years. I love going to different places and experiencing how they live. Recently, I was able to visit Jerusalem. Considered one of the oldest cities in the world, I was able to experience some of the good things that Jerusalem offers to its visitors, thanks to Goldcarpet.
When I arrived in Jerusalem, all I had with me was a map and my desire to tour the city even though I was not familiar with the place. Luckily for me, I was able to acquire help from Goldcarpet’s Jerusalem tour guides. They arranged my route in the city and assisted me in visiting the different tourist spots in Jerusalem.
One of the first sites I visited was the Garden Tomb. This place is believed by Protestants, Evangelist, and other scholars to be the place where Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and resurrected.
Aside from the Garden Tomb, I was also able to visit many other tourist spots. This includes the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, the Old City, the Israel Museum, and the Western Wall Tunnels. There were also plenty of climbing opportunities at some of the site stations, and one more thing which we came across was the Torah writer ("sofer"), who specializes in ancient writings.
The next day we visited Bethlehem, adjacent to Jerusalem - we saw the Church of Nativity, the Taybeh Beer Brewery, Old museum, Arafat's tomb and many other historical places. We took our lunch at a cafe in Bethlehem.
I also asked them to arrange a day trip for me to the Dead Sea since it was only a few miles away. To be honest, I really thought that the Dead Sea no longer had any water in it. But, of course, I was wrong. It is known as the Dead Sea because, unlike other bodies of water, it contains a high level of salinity (around 33.7%). For this reason, animal and plant life cannot survive in this body of water, hence its name.
Truly, traveling around Jerusalem has given me one of the best experiences of my life. But, due to time constraints, I was not able to visit all of the famous spots in the city. However, as recommended by my guide, I would love to visit spots like the Neot Kedumim Biblical Landscape Reserve, the Qasr El Yahud baptismal site, the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens, the Garden of Gethsemane, and many more."
