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.

Approximate tour duration is 3 hours.

Half Day Bethany

This morning, travel to the religious site of Bethany to explore first-hand the foundations of Christianity.

The site has now been identified on the east bank of the Jordan River in Jordan, only 15 minutes by car from the Dead Sea Hotel. The Bethany area site formed part of the early Christian pilgrimage route between Jerusalem, the Jordan River, and Mount Nebo. This area is also associated with the biblical account of how the Prophet Elijah (Mar Elias in Arabic) ascended to heaven in a whirlwind on a chariot of fire.

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.

We had a truly wonderful trip to Israel and Jordan. I especially wish to commend our tour guides Henry in Israel and Hazim in Jordan. 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.

The trip was wonderful! Gate 1 did a wonderful job organizing the trip so my husband and I could relax and enjoy it. Our guide, Rotem, was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful with planning things during our free time. Rotem always made sure we were taken care of. We look forward to more trips with Gate 1!

Our Gate 1 trip to Israel was very good. Ophir, Kobi and Ramsi were excellent guides. They were all knowledgeable, personable and professional. My grandparents are both 80 and they had a blast. This meant a lot to our family and we appreciate all that Gate 1 has done for us.

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!

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.
