How can I get from the center of Haifa to Nesher Park? I understand it is not easy. If I need to get a cab where is the furthest I can travel by public transport to keep the costs down. Thanks
"Colours water fountaun" that you write about has stopped several months ago.
You need to tell tourists like me not to spend time seeking for somethings that do not exist!
What mode of transportation would you suggest between Jerusalem and Haifa? Someone suggested train to Tel Aviv and then bus to Haifa. Someone else said you could take a bus all the way from Jerusalem and it only took 2 hours. (In which case why go thru Tel Aviv?) I have also seen that, though the train route is slow, it is very scenic. (More scenic than the bus route?)
Any help in sorting this out would be appreciated. Thanks
I understand that I cannot drive in the old city of Akko. Can I leave a car outside of the old city, with luggage in it, while visiting the old city? Will there be a problem with theft? Will there be a problem with Israeli security not liking cars sitting around with unattended luggage?
Does anyone know about an open street festival happening this evening in downtown Haifa?
We are taking the train from Petach Tikvah to Haifa. We want to take the cable car up to the top. Is that where Stella Maris is? 1. At which train station should we get off? 2. Is there a bus from Stella Maris to the Bahai gardens?

I will be in Haifa, Isreal for 2 days. I would like to hire a car and driver to take me and 4 others from Haifa to Jerusalem and back for the day. Can anyone recommend a company or person to do this?
Any details as to why the museum at Ayelet Haschachar closed?
Is the path from Tel Yizre'el down to Ein Yizre'el dry and brown right now, or has there been enough rain there yet to turn it green, and are there any flowers there right now?
We are looking for a tour guide for the 1st Nov for 4 persons. We are on a cruise, and need the tour from 8am to 11am, as the ship leaves at 1pm.
We are staying overnight at the Gernman colony, so pick up will be at the hotel there and drop off at the ship
how can we reach Rosh Ha-nikra limestone caves from Haifa with public transport?
is there any direct bus?
or we have to change at Nahariya?
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?
any spot with panoramic view?
finally, will we have time for a sidetrip to Acre (Akko) or should we leave this for another day?
Why there is not information about this Beautifull Center in your page.
The International Center Mary of Nazareth is an attractive oasis of beauty and quiet in the middle of a bustling city
Some of the features I like most are: the remains of a first-century house near the entrance, the chapel, and the rooftop gardens with spectacular views over the city.
The center exists to promote a particular (RC) view of Mary, the mother of Jesus. A well-produced multimedia show in four successive theatres presents the biblical and non-biblical traditions relating to Mary.
For most visitors, a visit to Nazareth includes little more than the Basilica of the Annunciation and a trip to Mt Precipice. Even the Greek Orthodox Church with its ancient well is often omitted.
The people were wonderful and so giving and generous with their explanations and time. The multi media show is interesting although we are not believers.The building is lovely - dont miss the little capel on the top floor next to the beautifull garden with an amaizing view.
What are the best sites to visit in this area, and is it worth five hours on a bus to visit Jerusalem for the day?
when arriving by cruise ship, where can you meet someone who is picking you up
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
I recently visited Akko via tour bus. We parked near the museum entrance and visited a souvenir shop where a craftsman demonstrated how quickly he could craft a copper bracelet. They sell souvenirs and jewelry, key chains, and small trinkets. It is not a spice shop, nor do I recall seeing any type of food for sale there.
Can someone please provide the name of this shop, or a url link? Thank you!

We are coming to Haifa on a cruise ship and will have one and half days to stay there. Its Sunday 6th August to Monday around 12.30.
I would like someone to plan my whole time there and very local places to visit. In evening I would like to go to bar/s pub/s and maybe an Indian restaurant.I prefer local transport as I am well travelled. Is there any international shows in town at that time? All suggestions will be appreciated and I look forward to your replies and as always thanks in advance.
We are coming in on a cruise on a Saturday. We will be there all day and leave the next day mid-day. We have four adults and three small children (ages 1-5) and would like to do a self-guided tour of as much of Israel as possible, most likely staying overnight Saturday night. All the rental car
companies seem to be closed on Saturday (Sabbath) an almost all the tours are booked. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!!!
we will be having a trip to gan slosha and its my firstime to handle a trip.i would like to ask.if how much is the entrance of each person? is there any discount for the child? or is there any discount if for example 50 heads?
Wij zijn binnenkort twee dagen in Haifa.
Kan iemand aangeven welke bussen vanuit de haven naar de diverse bezienswaardigheden en winkelcentra in Haifa gaan of is het verstandiger per taxi te gaan.
Wij zouden willen zien; de grot van Elia, de graftombe van Bab, het karmalietenklooster Stella Maris, de Souk in Wadi Nismas, maar ook het Atlit Camp.
Ook zou ik willen weten welk winkelcentrum echt de moeite waard is omdat het zo bijzonder is.
Als laatste zou ik willen weten op welke manier wij van de haven naar de Druzendorpen Usfiyah en Daliat el Karmel kunnen komen.
