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?
There are no a lot of hotels and guest houses directly in Arad town. In my opinion Arad is more attractive for a long staying neither Ein Bokek. The price for B&B or mini-hotels in Arad much less so you have an oppotrtunity to stay there for more than few days. The way from Arad to Dead Sae may take about 15 minutes by car/taxi/city shuttle. Furthermore climate in Arad much enjoyable then in Ein Bokek. Nevertheless I don't understand why B&B and mini-hotels in Arad are so unpopular? What is the main reasons? Quality of accommodation? Number of services? Neighborhood? Strangles of this kind of accommodation? or What can you say on this?
What are the few beach resorts near to the eilat central bus station?
Hi, my friend and I are going to Israel in September. We would like to avoid going with Egged, if possible. Friday afternoon we want to go from Ein Gedi to Tel Aviv. Is there a sherut also in the afternoon on Fridays? Another option would be a rental car. But is it possible to return a car in Tel Aviv on a Friday evening? Thanks for your help in advance

We are staying at the Masada Youth Hostel Mar 17-19. Breakfast is included, but what other restaurants are nearby? We read the restaurant in the park is expensive and buffet style? I hope there are other options?!
We are travelling from Jeruselum to Massada on a Saturday, so of course we will take a taxi and get dropped off at the Hostel. But what are travel options in and around the Dead Sea? Is it a walkable area or are there taxis or shuttles needed? Upon returning to Jeruselum, where is the bus station and what buses (nos.) are available to Jeruselum? thanks for any help!
Hi folks, we are 2 travelers staying in Petra, Jordan until Friday but then we have to go back Israel, since our flight is leaving on Sunday in the very morning. We are trying to get to the the death sea on Friday but we will arrive in Israel after dawn, so we getting straight into Sabbath, but maybe we are lucky and we find a intercity service taxi crossed finger In case we can't make we have to stay a night in Eilat, but where??? There not the much hostels on the standard hostels search engines and they mostly request a 2 day booking. But I heard something about Red Sea Star - Vista Azul Dive Centre but can't find anything on the web. So maybe anyone of you can give us some help, would be really great :) By the way, there are frequent connections from Dead Sea (Mas´ada or En Gedi) to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv? Thx stefan
which egged bus stop stops closest to the masada hostel? is it before/after/in ein bokek? is it a significant walk from the bus stop to the hostel itself?
We will arrive Aqaba by flight in the morning of a day in next October. We plan to cross the border to Eilat to see the Red Canyon. Is there enough time for us to do it within the same day and return? Can we go to Red Canyon independely from Eilat rather than joining any tour group (as my husband may love to spend a few hours taking photographs there). Will it be too hot doing hiking in the afternoon? Any advice and comment will be much appreciated.
How far is the bus station from the Masada Guest House/Youth Hostel? How far is the Ein Gedi Spa from the Guest House? I am trying to get an idea how "walkable" this area is. Does anyone know how long it ususally takes to walk up to Masada? I heard conflicting accounts, but I realize everyone's ability is different. I am trying to figure how much water to carry.
Are the helmoniot blooming yet in this last week of October?
We would like to travel to and from Masada from Jeruselum in March 2012. Many tours offer a one day bus tour taking the cable car up to Masada then spending some time at the dead sea. We would like to do an overnight so that we could climb Masada instead of taking the cable car. Does anyone know buses to and from Jeruselum and transport between Masada and the Dead sea so that we can do all this w/o being grouped with other who just take the cable car?
We are a group of 11 South Africans that will go to Egypt through Eilat on the 24th of October. Do we need more than a day to get visas in Eilat?

Hi guys! I need desperatedly help! This Sunday (12/06/2011) I'm attending to a magnificent concert of Andrea Bocelli which will be held at the foot of the Mt. Masada right beside the Dead Sea. I really don't want to miss it. My problem is that the concert is at 22:00 so there are no more buses to get there or to come back to Jerusalem. What do you recomend? I don't want to spend 300 NIS in paying a taxi. Does anybody know a cheap way to get there and to come back? I really need help because I'm a volunteer at Israel thus I don't have so much money to spend in a taxi of 300 NIS. Really hope somebody could help me. It's urgent because is the concert is day after tomorrow!!! Thanks in advance.
we are 4 people and would like to dive in eilat on the afternoon of 14 july and morning of 15 july 2011. Are there dives for that specific days.eg Reef diving cave diving and dive with dolphins?
I am planning to visit the Dead Sea region when I visit Israel at the end of May. I have three questions about this that travel books and web sites that I have read don't answer: 1) If I rent a car and drive along route 1 and route 90 to Masada, is it safe? Is it just highway through open area or do I pass through hostile areas? I will be travelling alone during the day. 2) What is there to see at Qumran? I really want to maximize my time in the area. Can I drop in and see the settlement and caves in an hour or so? Is it worth stopping? 3) If I rent a car, I would be interested in driving to Arad and seeing the light and sound show. How long does it take to drive to Arad from Masada (I will be staying at the Masada hostel)? What time does the show start? In case it's important, I will be leaving Jerusalem Thursday early afternoon and driving on to Eilat from Masada Friday late afternoon. Thanks for any advice!
I plan to visit masada by Egged bus from Jerusalem, and I would like to stay at Ein Gedi for the night and then go to Masada before dawn to climb the snake path (probably arriving Friday evening and climbing Saturday monrning - then going on to Eilat on Egged). Are there any transportation options available between these three sites for me to do this, such as shuttles, local buses or taxis? Thanks for any suggestions you can give me!
Hi, I am driving from Jerusalem to Eilat with my 11 year old daughter on April 3 for a two night stay. We plan to go to the Dolphin Reef to swim with the dolphins and to snorkel. I also want to do some hiking. We have the day we drive down from Jerusalem, then the next day is a full day, then the day we leave-flying out at 4 pm. My thought is to do the Dolphin Reef on the second, full day. So to fit in some hiking I am thinking about 2 things: 1. stop at Timna Valley on drive in to Eilat, or 2. go to the red mountains. I also read that the Nahal Gishron is the most beautiful hike in Eilat, but how much time do I need for that? I could hike on the day we leave, too. So, if someone could let me know a little about Timna, Nahal Gishron and the Red Canyon, including how much time I need for each, I would really appreciate it! Thanks

Does anyone know what the cost is of taking a taxi from Arad City Center to the Dead Sea? Also I do not have a working cell phone here in Israel so could I prearrange with the taxi driver to pick me up at the Dead Sea at a certain time to return to Arad? Thank you for your help! Lynn
a. Is it better to self drive or join a jeep tour? Which is cheaper and which is a reliable company to rent the vehicle or join the tour with? b. I like the flexibility of driving myself (as opposed to a group tour) but am not sure of the political situation. Do I need to check on the political situation at all and where may I get updated info on this? c. I hope to do an overnight at a Bedouin tent to experience their "hospitality". How may I pre-book? Are there options to choose from and is there a website where I can check out the prices in advance? Thanks a million! =)
Hello all, Can anyone help me out to solve my question? We would like to visit Petra during our stay in Eilat. All I see are extremely high prices, which not even include border taxes. Does anyone have a better idea. How would you do it? We wanna go around the 26th of october. Thanks in advance, Ron Ploeg The Netherlands
