DESCRIPTION: Featured by National Geographic and TED, the Dual Narrative Tour (TM) is now offered to the public! In this multi-narrative experience, see Jerusalem presented by one Jewish Israeli and one Palestinian guide in tandem. Visit** the “Noble Sanctuary” or “Temple Mount,” the complex ascribed special meaning in biblical tradition, and holy for both Judaism and Islam. Move to a viewpoint overlooking Old City rooftops and the valleys beyond its walls – which points are emphasized in each guides’ narrative? Do the two relate differently to the city’s thousands of years of history? Visit the Church of Holy Sepulchre, a window into the diversity of Christian faith and living example of a tenuous truce. Pass through the Old City’s main arteries and small pathways. Who lived here hundreds of years ago? In 1929? 1967? How is it changing today? Understand deep religious and national ties to Jerusalem, consider recent tensions, and ponder the city’s future.

** time permitting

 

+ Tour add-on ($25): “Tale of Two Markets” – On a journey from East to West Jerusalem, sample flavors from the city’s leading markets – Musrara & Mahane Yehuda. Ride the Jerusalem light rail (cost included!), taste Palestinian fare, a Yemini drink, and more. This is where history, culture, and flavor meet. Tour begins at the Damascus Gate and concludes at Mahane Yehuda.

 

MEJDI also arranges customized private tours according to groups’ specific interests and needs.
