Frequently asked questions
We will be entering the holy temples such as a mosque. Men cannot wear shorts above the knee and t-shirts above elbows. Women cannot wear shorts or skirts above the ankle and t-shirts above the wrists. Usually the veil for the women is given at the entrance of the mosque and kippah for the man in the synagogue but if don’t want to wear those ones you can bring your own one.
The mosque would be the most strict temple in which we will go regarding the dress code, but be aware that in other temples as well you would need to have clothes which is not revealing too much.
We are able to do that. However, that change would would be seen as a customization of the tour making the tour private. If you are the only people on the tour we would be doing that without offering you the private tour option.
