      Tour to Istanbul

      Israel Mar 24, 2015 at 6:43 PM

      Hi! I'm going to be in Israel for about 3 weeks starting on April 26th. We plan to go for 3 or 4 days to Istanbul at some point.

      My wife was there about 10 years ago and she remembers buying a package that included flight and hotel, really cheap. She bought it directly in Israel.

      Does anyone know if those kind of packages still exist? If so, who sells them and how much are they approximately?

      Thanks!!

      Best area to stay

      Jerusalem Mar 7, 2015 at 7:18 PM

      Hi! I'm going to Jerusalem with my wife and 2yr old son at the end of April. I've never been there so I'm a bit lost regarding location.

      What is a good area to stay at? What is the "difference" between the West and East Jerusalem? Would you stay in/near the old city?

      Thanks for the help!

      Going to Massada with an Israeli rented car?

      Jerusalem Mar 12, 2015 at 6:43 AM

      As far as I found out, the best way to go to Massada national park from Jerusalem will lead through Westbank by taking route nr. 1 to the dead sea and follow its bank via route nr. 90 to Massada....

      Is it allowed to go this route with a car rented from an Israeli company? When I get it right, I will not leave Israeli controlled area (Zone C), so the car should be still insured?

      Will I have to pass check-points/border stations on this route? Or are they only between the zones A and B and Isreali controlled areas?

      Accommodation in Beersheba?

      by LNata Online Now Mar 20, 2013 at 5:50 AM

      Have again to travel in Beersheba for business for a few days and I am getting sick only by thinking that I have again stain in the same and the only hotel Leonardo (or Golden Tulip). Bad quality and terribly overpriced for the service they provide.

      I cannot believe that there is no available any other accommodations or guest houses for reasonable price. May be anyone knows any of them?
