      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.


      Israel Sep 30, 2016 at 5:09 AM

      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.

    • Urgent. Need a Meeting place in Ashdod.

      Ashdod Oct 29, 2013 at 11:48 PM

      My wife and I are coming to Ashdod on a cruise, on Sunday November 17th 2013. I have a friend, From Petah Tivkva, with a wife who is blind. We have not met for 20 years. We, of course will be coming from the cruise port.
      They will get off the 350 bus at HaNamal Junction. Is that a place where we could meet them ? Are there any Cafes or restaurants there ? Or Should they and us meet somewhere close to it ?
      None of us are very mobile, and would need to travel by bus or taxi.
      Thank You.

      Considering a move to Netanya and my Israeli friends keep telling me it probably has the highest crime rate in Israel!
      Can't find any information about that - can a local explain further?

      Also, even after a Google search, finding only one or two website with long term rentals in Netanya and further south. Connection with a leasing agent or realtor would be great!
