Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Jerusalem, Israel

Welcome to Jerusalem – a city of rich history embodied above all in its ancient architecture and holy sites. If you are visiting for the first time, our Old City Waking Tour will take you to some of the most essential sights, or you could opt to follow in the Steps of Jesus and re-connect what many consider to be some of the holiest places on our planet. Make sure not to miss a stroll through the Jewish Quarter or along the old City Gates, built in the early 16th century by Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Even if you are not religious, a tour of the Mount of Olives is also worth taking for its most spectacular views!

In all, we have prepared 12 self-guided walks for you to explore Jerusalem, which cover everything from historical and religious sites to ample shopping opportunities. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

How it works: Download the app "GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities" from Apple App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile phone or tablet. Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next. The app works offline, so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
