    • Best way to get from Jerusalem to Haifa

      Haifa Feb 4, 2015 at 2:50 PM

      What mode of transportation would you suggest between Jerusalem and Haifa? Someone suggested train to Tel Aviv and then bus to Haifa. Someone else said you could take a bus all the way from Jerusalem and it only took 2 hours. (In which case why go thru Tel Aviv?) I have also seen that, though the train route is slow, it is very scenic. (More scenic than the bus route?)

      Any help in sorting this out would be appreciated. Thanks

    • what to do in Haifa

      Haifa Sep 3, 2013 at 8:54 AM

      I try to make an itinerary for Haifa, we'll be there in the morning probably by bus but in which order should we see things?
      is there a specific bus stop to be near the must see attractions?
      going through VT pages it seems we have to start with Bahai Gardens, but as there are 3 different levels what should we do to save some energy and be near other attractions?

      other attractions on our list are:
      Carmelite monastery of Stella Maris, how can we go there?
      Germany Colony
      any spot with panoramic view?

      finally, will we have time for a sidetrip to Acre (Akko) or should we leave this for another day?

    • The International Center of Mary in Nazareth

      Nazareth Jul 22, 2013 at 1:54 AM

      Why there is not information about this Beautifull Center in your page.
      The International Center Mary of Nazareth is an attractive oasis of beauty and quiet in the middle of a bustling city
      Some of the features I like most are: the remains of a first-century house near the entrance, the chapel, and the rooftop gardens with spectacular views over the city.
      The center exists to promote a particular (RC) view of Mary, the mother of Jesus. A well-produced multimedia show in four successive theatres presents the biblical and non-biblical traditions relating to Mary.
      For most visitors, a visit to Nazareth includes little more than the Basilica of the Annunciation and a trip to Mt Precipice. Even the Greek Orthodox Church with its ancient well is often omitted.
      The people were wonderful and so giving and generous with their explanations and time. The multi media show is interesting although we are not believers.The building is lovely - dont miss the little capel on the top floor next to the beautifull garden with an amaizing view.

      Tour Plan Israel

      Haifa Aug 11, 2012 at 7:20 AM

      My husband and I will be in Haifa on Nov. 15, 2012 arriving on a cruise ship. We'll be there for around 12 hrs so we need to maximize our time while there, we will be in Ashdod the next day and will be joining a group from our cruise on a tour to Jerusalem/Dead Sea with Group Tours Israel (GTI). They set a tour for Haifa but we just didnt love it so looked for something different.
      I found a tour through TourPlanIsrael thar sounds great. Goes to Caesarea, Acre and some other stuff, it sounds great. The problem is I cant find any reviews or info on them, is there anyone who has used them or that lives there that could let me know if i can trust them?
      The reason I'm worried is we were on a cruise in 2009 that went to Alexandria, Egypt. Same situation, we only had fom 7 am til 10 pm. Weeks in advance i set up a tour with Best way travel, got confirmation, all was good. We stopped in rhodes a couple of days before, i checked my email at an internet cafe and they said they needed confirmation, i said yes u have to pick us up, i checked from turkey next day no response. Of course they didnt show up to port, had to hire taxi, just spoiled the day. This is main reason were going back, we stop in port said and alexandria the next two days, have an overnight tourthrough ramses. When i contacted them after we got home, she said they require a confirmation before tour, i told her i was in middle of ocean couldnt read mails, i did reply from 3different ports and i had a confirmation email/number.
      I' m sorry this is so long but I just wanted yall to see why its important for me to have some type of review. I know its not fool proof but at least its something. Thanks, Marilyn

      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!
