Places to visit on the open day/s in Jerusalem

Christopher Cross has connections to bring you to these places at a reduced cost. If you wish you can venture out on your own get your own transportation to anyone of these places or just walk to some of the closer locations.

Holocaust Museum (Yad Vashem)  no entrance fee and taxi would be around $10 one way for the cab, regardless how many in the cab. Remember the more you have in the cab the cheaper it is.  They have a cafeteria there if you need lunch.

Bethlehem Church of the Nativity  free to enter, but a special cab with a permit to enter West Bank has to bring you over and bring you back.  Price for the taxi $12 a person one way.

Mount of OlivesYou need to take taxi over to top of the Mt. of Olives and walk down the Palm Sunday route taking your time and finally ending up in Gethsemane. Cost of the cab to the top of the Mt. of Olives $8 per person.

Masada on the Dead Sea – About 45 minute ride by cab.  You will need a guide to guide you while there.  Cost of cab would be $175 per person obviously the more you have the total price comes down.  Count on a half day to view everything and travel time.
