      Take a Tour or do it yourself

      Israel 1 hours ago

      We are thinking of Israel in early June 2015 and would like to know if it is easy to do it yourself. We have taken a lot of tours in other countries and the efficiency is what I like best BUT sharing the experience with 30 other people is not the greatest. We are looking to do Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and take day trips to all the other out of town highlights. If you could recommend tour companies and sights to see that would be great.

    • Akko - Cars in the old city

      Akko Yesterday

      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?

      Israel Jan 1, 2015 at 8:00 PM

      1. Is that correct that from Jerusalem to Allenby Boarder, I can take the he shuttle bus from Damascus gate? Do I need to make reservation if Damascus Gate is not the final terminal? It takes about 45 mins? The price is about 45 ILS?
      2. How to get to the South border (Taba) from Jerusalem? How long does it take and how much?

    • How to plan little free time in Israel

      Israel Dec 31, 2014 at 8:46 AM

      I would need help in planning a very little free time I will have on my trip to Israel. I will be stationed in Haifa. All that I will have available is one evening after 18.00 and then from Thursday 19.00 till Saturday 18.00 (Sabbath...), when my plane takes off.
      Any suggestions would be really welcome. I would prefer to see Christian sites like Church of the Holy Sepulchre or Betlehem (where I could also maybe get a glimpse of the Arab culture).

      How safe is it to travel to Betlehem or spend a night there?
      Would it make sense (especially on safety grounds) to leave Haifa at 19.00 and travel to Betlehem or Jerusalem (that could maximise my tour time on the following day)?
      Is it really necessary to come to the airport full 3h before the flight?

      Any itinerary ideas greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

    • Jenin back to Jerusalem

      I am travelling to Jenin on Friday for the annual olive harvest festival. I am travelling from Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. I understand how to get to the festival (bus 18 to ramallah, shared taxi to Jenin, and then a private taxi to the site). However, my question is, how do I get back to Jerusalem after the festival (it ends at 8pm)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • The safety situation in Tel Aviv

      Tel Aviv-Yafo Aug 22, 2014 at 12:11 PM

      We have booked flights to Tel Aviv on October and booked an apartment close to the beach area. We are travelling with small children and are a bit worried about the safety situation. Running into the bombshells would not be a holiday memory that I would like to share with our daughters age of 6 and 8.

      What is the situation at the moment and is there still alarms on a daily basis? If we still choose to come to Israel, is there other areas close to Tel Aviv that have a lesser risk (such as Herzliya, Netanya)? Our flights are to/from Ben Gurion.
