The Red Bus City Tour

The Red Bus City Tour

Guaranteed Departure
A/C Transport
Partially Accessible
Tour bus around many of Jerusalem’s most important attractions during its two-hour route with stops at 28 landmarks around the city.

A unique attraction, suitable even for children, meant to show you the beauty of modern Jerusalem alongside ancient and historical Jerusalem. During the tour, you can hop on and off on the bus at any stop along the way and visit the nearby site (requires purchasing a daily ticket). 

The journey between the historical and tourist sites of Jerusalem is accompanied by explanations given in eight languages through personal audio headphones. If you’re touring Jerusalem as a group, you can also rent the bus for a group tour.

Jerusalem is a huge city, and the red bus is a great solution for those who want to get as much done as possible in a comfortable and easy way that will allow you to enjoy the spectacular views!

The buses leave every hour from the bus bay at 14 Agron Street and offer you two different tours:

  • City Tour - a peripheral tour of about an hour and a half around the walls of the Old City with a stop for a spectacular panoramic view of Jerusalem from Mount Scopus.
  • Hop on Hop off - Flexible tour that lasts about two and a half hours, and takes you around 15 designated stops by the main tourist sites in the city, allowing unlimited travel with stops at stations where you can get off and visit attractions, museums, galleries, tourist sites, cafes, and more... a well-known concept already implemented in many capitals around the world.
