V.I.P Services and Tours to Israel

If you’re planning a stop in the Holy Land, whether, for a well-deserved vacation or a business trip, the last thing you want is the hassle of untangling the ins and outs of a foreign country, a strange language, and an unfamiliar culture. It takes time, and can be daunting to inexperienced travellers.

Travelling is made easy when you know someone on the inside – someone responsible, knowledgeable, and able to take you from point A to point B smoothly and confidently.

For over 20 years, we at Gold Carpet Tours have been providing guided tours as well as V.I.P. services. We take care of your every need before you arrive, throughout your visit, up till your very last moment with us.


V.I.P. – Airport and Vehicle Services

Our services include different V.I.P Airport packages to make your landing, taking off and everything in between a piece of cake. You can expect us to meet you at your gate or plane, brisk through security checks, handle your baggage and all incoming flight procedures. And of course, the same for your outgoing flight! So you can sit back and relax in a V.I.P lounge or private room with refreshments galore – and we’ll take care of the rest.

And if you’d like, a premium, safe, and well air-conditioned vehicle will await to take you to your next destination and beyond. Our vehicles, suitable for individuals or groups, are driven by licensed, English-speaking drivers and are under the supervision of our Traffic and Safety Officer.

Forget about sorting out car-rental insurance paperwork. That way, you can stay focused on what matters most to you.

3 historic attractions you must see in Jerusalem’s Old City

The Old City sits like a jewel in the crown that is the capital city, Jerusalem. Wars and victories, events that have changed the course of history, political controversies, and celebrations of different cultures and different faiths – all have happened within this 0.9 square kilometers (0.35 square miles) guarded by a high stone wall and 12 massive gates (some working, some not).

What is the Old City? Up until 1860, when the famous neighborhood of Mishkenot Sha’ananim was established, the Old City housed the entire population of Jerusalem. Today, it is divided into four uneven quarters: Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and Armenian.

Its narrow stone alleyways, blend of cultures, and tourist attractions make it one of the most intriguing and welcoming places for visitors and locals alike.


The Western Wall

The Western Wall (also known as the Wailing Wall) is a small remaining segment of an ancient and much longer retaining wall. The wall was erected as part of the expansion of the Second Temple. This site is considered the holiest place for Jews to pray at, as they believe the Temple, built by King Solomon, was the dwelling place of the presence of God.

Traditionally, people of all beliefs, nationalities, and ages come here to seek God in prayer, write their requests on notes, place them between the crevasses of the ancient stones, and experience spiritual connection. Coming-of-age celebrations (bar/bat mitzvahs) are celebrated there with the reading of Holy Scripture, and cultural events are held in the large plaza in front of the wall.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Between the winding walls of the Christian Quarter stands, tall and proud, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Dating back to the 4th century, it contains the two holiest sites in Christianity. It is believed to be the site called Golgotha (which means ‘skull’ in Hebrew), where Jesus was crucified, and the place of his burial and resurrection. The tomb is enclosed by a shrine called Aedicula.

You will be overwhelmed by a feeling of reverence as you smell the sweet aromas of anointing oil and incense, listen to the sound of prayers echoing off the magnificent structure, and walk the 9-14 stations of the cross in quiet contemplation.


The Temple Mount/Dome of the Rock

The Dome of the Rock is an Islamic shrine, located on the Temple Mount. Beneath the golden dome is the Foundation Stone, which is protected and surrounded by exquisite arches and pillars and ancient Arabic inscriptions.

In Islamic tradition, it is known to be the starting point from which the Prophet Muhammad started his Night Journey into the heavens on his legendary horse, El-Burak. In Abrahamic religions, it is believed to be where God began the creation of the world, where Abraham attempted to sacrifice his son, and the dwelling place of God’s divine presence.

The Old City and its exceptional religious landmarks present a rare opportunity to experience a beautiful melting pot of cultures that is hard to find in other places.

We would love to take you there on one of our daily tours. You can walk through the open market, stop at the different quarters, and visit the sites that have had people from all over the world flocking to Jerusalem’s Old City every year.

Travel to Eilat

Check out after breakfast, and follow the “Peace Road” – a fascinating drive along part of the border between the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan. Along the way enjoy views of the cultivated fields of Idan, Hatzeva and Ein Yahav, observation points that overlook the landscapes of the Arava streambed, the mountains of Edom and the reservoirs that irrigate the fields of the desert. We will continue to marvel at the immense, multi-colored rock formations with a tour of Timna Park, viewing the ancient copper mines and the spectacular King Solomon’s Pillars. Drive to Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city and port, where our day will end with a Desert Jeep Safari through the Eilat Mountains. Overnigh in Eilat
