      3 Weeks in September?

      Israel Apr 13, 2014 at 3:39 AM

      Hello VTers - it's been a while!
      I'm beginning to plan our first adventure for 2 years and I'm so excited that the choice seems quite overwhelming!
      It's just a 3-weeker, but I want an exciting, varied and beautiful itinerary.
      We want to visit somewhere new and I'm looking for help with ideas.
      Currently, Israel & Rwanda are top runners, but Mongolia was a hot favourite for a while, but was dropped because I decided we'd need longer than 3 weeks.
      I love rivers and jungle. I like to walk. My favourite countries are Turkey and Nepal.
      I love little, beautiful lodges without electricity sat in the middle of nowhere.
      I like to cross borders by land.
      Could anyone please give me some ideas for itineraries for Rwanda, Israel or share your favourite travel adventure if it sounds like it might fit the bill? I'm looking for inspiration!
      Big thanks and happy travels :-)

      what to do in Haifa

      by mindcrime Online Now Sep 3, 2013 at 8:54 AM

      I try to make an itinerary for Haifa, we'll be there in the morning probably by bus but in which order should we see things?
      is there a specific bus stop to be near the must see attractions?
      going through VT pages it seems we have to start with Bahai Gardens, but as there are 3 different levels what should we do to save some energy and be near other attractions?

      other attractions on our list are:
      Carmelite monastery of Stella Maris, how can we go there?
      Germany Colony
      any spot with panoramic view?

      finally, will we have time for a sidetrip to Acre (Akko) or should we leave this for another day?

      Tour Plan Israel

      by marilyn71 Online Now Aug 11, 2012 at 7:20 AM

      My husband and I will be in Haifa on Nov. 15, 2012 arriving on a cruise ship. We'll be there for around 12 hrs so we need to maximize our time while there, we will be in Ashdod the next day and will be joining a group from our cruise on a tour to Jerusalem/Dead Sea with Group Tours Israel (GTI). They set a tour for Haifa but we just didnt love it so looked for something different.
      I found a tour through TourPlanIsrael thar sounds great. Goes to Caesarea, Acre and some other stuff, it sounds great. The problem is I cant find any reviews or info on them, is there anyone who has used them or that lives there that could let me know if i can trust them?
      The reason I'm worried is we were on a cruise in 2009 that went to Alexandria, Egypt. Same situation, we only had fom 7 am til 10 pm. Weeks in advance i set up a tour with Best way travel, got confirmation, all was good. We stopped in rhodes a couple of days before, i checked my email at an internet cafe and they said they needed confirmation, i said yes u have to pick us up, i checked from turkey next day no response. Of course they didnt show up to port, had to hire taxi, just spoiled the day. This is main reason were going back, we stop in port said and alexandria the next two days, have an overnight tourthrough ramses. When i contacted them after we got home, she said they require a confirmation before tour, i told her i was in middle of ocean couldnt read mails, i did reply from 3different ports and i had a confirmation email/number.
      I' m sorry this is so long but I just wanted yall to see why its important for me to have some type of review. I know its not fool proof but at least its something. Thanks, Marilyn

    • Haifa to Jerusalem by Bus

      by lawdogtim Online Now Dec 6, 2011 at 9:25 AM

      My wife and I stop in Haifa over night on a cruise (MSC Magnifica). We are scheduled to get there at 1400 on Feb 21 and leave at 2000 on Feb 22. Since the excursions offered by the cruise did not allow much time in Jerusalem (5 hours), we have decided to get there on our own, spend the night, and then return to the ship the next day. After having considered traveling to Jerusalem by several methods (car rental, train, bus), we have determined that the bus is likely our best option. We THINK we have found the bus route we need to take, but we are having a difficult time finding some more information about the journey:

      1) What is the best bus stop to use from the Haifa port? The Egged website has a stop called "Ha-Ir ha-Takhtit, Port." Is this the bus stop nearest to where we will emerge from the port? How do we find the stop?

      2) We have attempted to find information about the reliability of the Egged bus schedule, but have had no success. As you can imagine, we will need to be certain to plan sufficient time on our return journey to ensure that our cruise ship does not leave without us. The bus schedule allows us to leave Jerusalem at 1630 and arrive in Haifa at 1845. Since our return trip will be during the evening rush hour, this itinerary leaves us a cushion of 1 hour 45 minutes for the bus to get through any delays that might be encountered. Is this reasonable? Are the buses usually relatively true to the schedule?

      Thank you in advance for any assistance you can lend!

      On another day I want to visit parts of the North of Israel, e.g. the region Galilee (to enjoy the green landscape), or the Sea of Galilee (to visit Kapharnaum and other sites mentioned the Bible), the Golan region (?) and/or Nazareth.
      Please, can you tell me any tour organiser who will start from Haifa (either any city square or even from the main hotels; as we stay at Nof Hotel) for a guided one-day tour into one or more of the mentioned areas.
      I would greatly appreciate your soon recommendations.
      Many thanks in advance for your help!
