Spend a day with Herod the Great, legendary builder and King of Judea.
After a lunch-break, we proceed to the Israel Museum for in-depth exploration of the historic exhibit “Herod the Great: The King’s Final Journey”. At the model of ancient Jerusalem, with his masterpiece, the Jerusalem Temple, we conclude our monumental day with Herod.
Here is what the NYTimes says about the Herod the Great Tour guide:
Shmuel Browns, a tour guide and expert on Herodium… “They’ve built things from what was found that you could never imagine from what you saw at the site,” Mr. Browns said. “The message is very, very strong about who Herod is and what he did. He wasn’t intimidated by topography, he wasn’t intimidated by material, he wasn’t intimidated by lack of water.”
