Half Day Jerusalem Herodian Mansions & Burnt House

This tour features two visits that take you back to the time of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, an era reaching back as far as 515 BCE. Your first stop will be a 6 house compound known as the Herodian Mansions. These were the homes of aristocracy, most especially Temple priests and their families. The homes were designed in the Hellenistic Roman style popular at the time. The design of the dwellings, and the findings revealed during the excavations, bear witness to the residents' wealth and high standard of living. They allow you to observe the living conditions and way of life of the Jerusalem upper class on the eve of the destruction of the Second Temple. The last visit on this tour will be to the Burnt House*, which was excavated in the 1970's. It was believed to have been set ablaze by the Roman legions in 70 AD. It was owned by the Kathros family, members of the wealthy Temple priest aristocracy. You will view an emotional video reproduction of the 2,000 year old events, as they were appearing before your very eyes. Watch as they prepare their revolt against the Romans, the different political opinions of the family members, the storming of the city and the house, and the destruction of the temple and the torching of the house.
*Due to renovations at the Burnt House, some tours will visit the Hurva Synagogue instead.

11 Day Classic Israel, July 2019
Dummy Image

This was the best tour I have taken. I have done about 50 tours with many touring companies over the years. The most important thing was the tour director. Mr. Mati, our tour director, is the very best. He not only is very knowledgeable, but he has a rare gift of being able to read the group. He senses when to speed up and when the participants are not fully understanding, to slow up and use examples. The hotels were all centrally located and good. The food was good. The optional trips were priced fairly. The group of 19 people were friendly, intelligent and everyone had a good time. This was my second tour with Gate 1. You are now my number one tour company for my future trips. Keep up the good work!

We had enough time in every stop to enjoy the significance of each location.The hotels were top notch in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the Golan Heights/Galilee and Tel Aviv. Thanks Mati!

There truly aren't enough words to express how wonderful our trip was to Israel!!! It's like a beautiful dream that has finally come to an end. Being home is so bittersweet!!! I have to say that Gabi, our incredible tour guide helped make the trip so spectacular because of all her knowledge. She was SO FANTASTIC and will never forget her!!! She deserves 5 stars for being THE BEST tour guide ever!!! I have traveled all over the world, and can honestly say that I have never had a tour guide as good as her. She never cut us short, and shared all her wonderful knowledge with us, besides having such a lovely demeanor. I already miss her!!! I have recommended Gate 1 to several people and plan to use them again for future trips. I was totally satisfied with the beautiful hotels we stayed in, places we visited, as well as the food.

It was AMAZING!! We participated in all of the tours, including the optional tours. Every tour was filled with an incredible amount of information as well as beautiful and historical sites. The hotels offered a huge, tasty variety of food for every meal. The best aspect of our tour was our tour guide Henry. His extensive knowledge of history, politics, economics, agriculture, religion and geography kept everyone on our tour captive during his discussions. He also incorporated his personal experiences into everything he talked about which made it even more interesting. He always called us to attention by saying, "My dear friends." We truly felt like his friends. Henry is by far the best tour guide I have ever had in all of my travels.

They were efficient, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful to all in our party. We normally travel independently, planning our own itinerary, but in this case we were reluctant to travel to these two countries without experienced guides. We are very happy we traveled with Gate 1.

Our trip was absolutely fantastic! This is the first time we have done an organised tour, and I cannot praise Gate1 highly enough. The hotels were all top class, the food superb, and the itinerary covered so much ground. It would have been impossible for us to see and do as much had we attempted to do it on our own.. A special mention re our tour guide, Rotem Litov, he was fantastic. His in-depth knowledge and ongoing commentary of the sights we saw was brilliant. I think I learnt more in a week from him than I did studying history at school for four years. He also managed to keep everyone in the group on a tight reign, not an easy job given he was looking after 40 people, so that none of the rest of the group was inconvenienced. We would definitely use Gate1 again, and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to friends and family.

It was a great trip and provided me with a profound better understanding of the land and history of the holy land as well as of surrounding countries, and our guide was excellent.

The trip to Israel was way beyond expectations. The flights, accommodations, food, and the Tour Guide, Elon, was phenomenal! His knowledge, professionalism and personality added to an already special time in The Holy Land. This trip has been on my bucket list for some time, and it was well worth the wait.

My trip was absolutely fabulous! I already referred people who want to go to Israel to contact Gate 1 Travel. The thing I loved was I traveled solo and felt safe throughout my trip from start to finish I had no problems with flight, hotels or tours. Everything was as described and Gate 1 kept in contact about my itinerary up to three days before departure with reminders. I am already planning to return to Israel with a trip to Jordan. Thank you for making my trip of a lifetime memorable!

It was excellent. Great hotels, excellent guide, VIP service, new bus with expert driver, we liked the very busy itinerary. We received more than our moneys worth.

We had a wonderful experience in both Israel and Jordan. Our tour managers, Anat in Israel and Omar in Jordan are extremely knowledgeable. It was a spiritual and educational experience that we will never forget. Our tour managers gave us a thorough historical, cultural and geo political understanding of their countries. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable. Our buses were also clean and comfortable. Our bus drivers were very polite and helpful when getting on and off the bus.

Our trip was wonderful. Both tour guides (Adina in Israel and Faddy in Jordan) were great. Listening to Adina was enjoyable, she's a great story teller, full of knowledge. Faddy had a great sense of humor, lot's of knowledge. Both made our trip special. We've traveled with Gate 1 three times now and never had any problems. We would recommend Gate 1 to anyone.

I’d like to thank Gate 1 for my wonderful stay in Israel. The experience was educational, spiritually enriching and fun of course. A lot of the credit goes to our tour guide, Ophir, who was simply amazing. He was very professional and knowledgeable on a lot of topics. He patiently answered questions which I must say were not few. He took very good care of the group and even gave us treats (e.g. fresh pomegranate juice, fresh fig he picked from a fig tree and the tasty halva) and reminded us not to forget our VAT refund . And there was our driver, Kobi, who was always smiling and always happy to welcome us back to his cool bus. Thanks again Gate 1. You’re the best.
