      Senior rates on Israel rail

      Israel Oct 6, 2016 at 3:30 PM

      Are only Israeli citizens allowed to use senior rates on the train? I can't find the answer at their website.

      My wife and I are in our late fifties and plan to visit Israel next year spending a clear 14 days there. We would like to do thing at an easy pace. We have a reasonable interest in History and do not have deep religious inclinations. We are therefore only interested in a general sightseeing and getting an overview of the lovely country. We do not mind spending some time in cities and on beaches. We largely prefer ‘do it yourself’ travel, supported by some day / longer duration guided tours. We do not prefer taxis but use buses / trains etc. After a preliminary study, I feel that perhaps we could divide our time as follows: Tel Aviv - 4 days; Jerusalem - 5 days, Guided Tour of Northern Israel - 4 days, and Guided Tour of Masada / Dead Sea 1 day. Request advice and comments on: (1) is the distribution of time in various places OK? (2) Can we avoid taking a three / four days guided tour of Northern Israel but instead do Northern Israel by basing ourselves for one or two day in Haifa and one or two days at some other place (s) and then taking local tours from there if required? (3) If so where do we base ourselves and how do we go about it so that we can cover almost all that there is to see? (4) Any other suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks in advance.

      Average cost of water deliveries in the Negev Desert for hikers

      Israel Oct 1, 2016 at 12:02 PM

      Hi gang. I'm planning a 1,300 mile walk across the Middle East and have been trying to sort out water caching or deliveries for the Negev in Israel. I've seen a website, Waterdrop, which can deliver water but can't find any record on the web of the average cost for each delivery for a solo traveller. If anyone has any info on this I'd be very grateful. Just trying to budget ahead.


    • Akko - Cars in the old city

      by tucsontandem Online Now Jan 26, 2015 at 9:39 PM

      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?

    • jewelry shop for souvenirs?

      by patricePDX Online Now Aug 2, 2012 at 1:44 PM

      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!
