“Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie recently took a helicopter tour around Israel to see some of the country’s most sacred sites.

During the helicopter ride, Guthrie saw the Dead Sea, Judean Desert, Masada and areas of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount.

The NBC News morning show co-anchor was in Israel to film her series “Frontiers of Faith” for Holy Week, celebrated by Christians from Sunday, April 14 through Saturday, April 20. She also visited various sacred sites in the Old City of Jerusalem — such as the Western Wall, where she placed a note inside the wall.

Guthrie described Israel as “mystical, magical…[and] majestic.”
