While touring and museum hopping can often become expensive, this is a list of free things to do in Jerusalem.
Included are some of Israel’s most popular sites and both well and little known museums.
However, all the times on this list are historical and cultural gems of the State of Israel and Jerusalem itself.
Tip Based Tour of The Old City
This tour is more than two hours long and you really gain a good basic understanding of all four quarters of the Old City.
While the tour is technically free, and is actually called a free tour, in reality it is a tip based tour.
The the guides earn their money exclusively from tips and on top of that the guides have to pay the company about three to five dollars for each tour participant.
I know this because a friend of mine used to be one of the guides.
However, because the guides work on tips, the tour is very good and worth every penny you decide to tip.
