    • HELP IN SELECTION WALKING TOURS

      Jerusalem Jan 4, 2017 at 11:55 PM

      We plan to spend 6 days in Jerusalem. On two days we plan to take day tours: one to Masada, Ein Gadi and the Dead Sea; the second to Jerico, Bethlehem and Ramala. The balance of four days we intend spending as under:-
      Day 1. Sandeman’s free walking Tour.
      Day 2, 3 and 4 use the Jerusalem old city audio guide and walk around Jerusalem. Our aim is to experience the rich history of the city. However the challenge is to select such tours which optimize the experience and we get to see the maximum. In view of the time available (3 full days), we could easily take 4 or 5 such tours. Need guidance on which ones to select out of the following:-
      1. Via Dolorosa Tour (5 h 17 mins)
      2. In the footsteps of Christian Sects (5 hours 19 mins)
      3. The Temple Mount Compound (5 hours 19 mins)
      4. From Mount Zion to Jaffa Gate (3hours 10 mins)
      5. The Jewish Quarter (3 hours 12 mins)
      6. Marketplaces in the Old City (3 hours 13 mins)
      7. Ramparts Walk, Northern Section (3 hours 13 mins)
      8. Mount of Olives Tour of Churches (3 hours 12 mins)
      9. Ramparts Walk, Southern Section (3hours 13 mins)
      10. Jerusalem in the First and Second Temple Period (5hours 21 mins)
      11. Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem (2 hours 35 mins).
      12. The King’s Valley (3 hours 11 mins)
      13. The Herodian Quarter (1 hour 12 mins)
      Thanks

    • Safe to travel to Arbel, Iraq?

      by noellewells Online Now Jul 19, 2006 at 2:18 PM

      I am considering a trip mid-August to Arbel, Iraq in the Kurdish controlled area. I am American (by blood half Iraqi) and am going to visit my Iraqi father who I have not seen in 19 years. It makes more sense for me to go there to see the entire family rather than have just a few of them meet me in Jordan. Forgetting about the current mid-East tensions, would anyone know whether it is safe to travel to Arbel (currently) as an American? I would be staying in a private home. Thanks for any assistance!
