We are planning a short trip to Israel
Can you recommend some good travel guide, more interested in the art, culture, locations to visit ... more than in the logistic ( Hotels, restaurants... )
Also it will be appreciated if you recommend some books of Israel, related to art, culture, travels, history, novels...
Thank you in advance
Who are some of the best private guides for Christian education and where can they be contacted?
What is the best way to arrange private transportation for five adults?
Are only Israeli citizens allowed to use senior rates on the train? I can't find the answer at their website.
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.
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.

I study medicine and just got offerd a clerkship for February of 2017 in Israel. Its going to be either in Tel aviv, Jerusalem or Haifa. I sadly cant choose which one though.
My family is quite worried though so i wanted to ask if you think it is worth to take the risk and how high you think the risk is.
The department for outgoings suggests to avoid puplic areas as well as bus and train stations.
I'm making Aliyah to Israel and in the process of reviewing the different cities/neighborhoods. If there isn't much of a cost difference between Tel Aviv & surrounding areas please let me know. Based on my below criteria, any suggestions for a best suited area?
-Within 1 hour to Tel Aviv (approximately) using public transportation
-Affordable as possible
-English speaking community
-Diverse mix of people with overall open-mindedness (diverse mix of religions too)
-Thriving community with businesses, schools, restaurants & friendly to Olim
-Farmers markets & ample veggie/fruits availability
So far, I've looked into Be’er Sheva, Rishon LeZion, Netanya, Giv'atayim, Ramat Gan. Although I've never been to Israel before so any suggestions would be sincerely appreciated, thanks.
I have two possible desert tours that I can take during my June Israel trip. Not sure which one might be the best bet. Price is the same. Both through Abraham tours. Thoughts? Why would one be better than the other? Thanks for the feedback!
1) - Small Crater, Ben Gurion grave, Ein Avdat nature reserve, Bedouin camp
2) - Mount Azazel, Views of Mar Saba, Ein Prat nature reserve
How much NIS should I expect to spend in a week on groceries and perhaps a little restaurant food (one person)? What are the current auto fuel prices/gal? I'd like an idea of about how much NIS to have exchanged when I arrive.

I'll be coming from Yavne'el area and want to know how to get to a nice beach in Haifa?
How much NIS should I have ready when I travel from Ben Gurion Airport to Yavne'el area on Hwy 6?
We are arriving at Ben Gurion on a Saturday morning and would like to stash our luggage for the day. The airport website says their luggage storage is closed on Saturday, but the railway station has automated lockers.
Does anyone know if they are accessible on Saturday, even though the trains are not running? Or is the station locked up?
I am planning to take car from Jerusalem to go to Eilat. I was planning to make a stop at Dead Sea, Masada and Ein Bokek. What else would you recommend to visit on the way, and how much time should I take to be comfortable? I will also go back to Jerusalem so it doesnt not have to be all at once.Also, which beach to visit on Dead Sea? Thank you
Hello, I am a Canadian travelling to Israel...id like to know about the passport rules for entry...thank you.
In view of the current security situation, would it be advisable to visit the Old City and Mount of Olives alone and on foot, or should one rather join a tour group? Thanks for consideration.
Can you please assist on whether it is advisable to travel alone by rented vehicle between Jerusalem to Masada and Ein Bokek alongside Dead Sea for a day visit?
Hi all! My husbands job is taking us to israel this spring for 2-3 years. I'm wondering what some of the best neighborhoods/areas would be to look for housing? We have a 3 yr old, and he will be working in Beersheba- but we were thinking of living in tel aviv? Any pointers or thoughts as to good areas to live would be appreciated!
I would love to get your recommendations.
Is anyone from the US planning or changing your travel plans due to the random violence this week on the street in Tel Aviv?
For those that have been to both locations. Would you recommend a single day trip for both or a separate trip for both. Seems like it would be worth 2 trips
we are looking to due 2 days trips one to Masada and the other the dead sea full day for each what would be the best times to go from the 17th - 20th of Dec 2015
Hello. I'm traveling to Israel in December. My plan is few days in Eilat--Dead Sea--Jerusalem. I will use public transport. Is it safe? What places I should avoid?
I'll be on a tour in Nov 2015 in Tel Aviv and Jeruseleum. Please give me some tips on appropriate women's attire for ages 45-65. I've heard it's important to wear a hat in the sun. Are there certain styles, colors or types of women's wear that should not be worn. I was told to dress conservatively, not to stand out with flashy or expensive clothing. Can anyone elaborate on these recommendations? I am planning to bring black canvas walking shoes to wear with my pants and flat heeled boots to wear with my mid-calf skirt. I'm assuming I can buy scarves when I get there depending on the weather and how much extra warmth is needed.
Thank you in advance for any advice from women who have traveled in these cities.
can we go to Bethlehem fr Jerusalem on our own? if yes, how much time do we need and what transport pls fr where in Jerusalem?. thank you
Can someone direct me to a site where I can find cheap accomodation like hostels and bed and breakfasts in Israel.
I'd rather spend my money on excursions, than accomodations.
I`ve just joined this community because i`m travelling a lot this year. So in less then 2 weeks i am going to travel to Israel for the first time in my life. One day i want to make a day-trip to Jerusalem (i will take the train). Here and in traveling guides i got lots of helpful information, but i still have some questiones:
Is there still no direct bus from Malcha station to the center of Jerusalem? Has anything changed on the local bus system there?
I read that taking the tram is possible with a ticket to buy before, but i cannot change to a bus with this ticket. Is this correct or is there another possibility, maybe something like a day-ticket for bus and tram?
Thanks a lot for help!
We will be on a cruise shop stopping at Ashdod for the day - we would like to take a trip to Jerusalem.
Has anyone used Travel Israel, I liked their itinerary, most other guides seem to include the Dead Sea or Bethlehem and we think to do these as well we would be pushed for time and end up with a trip that was too rushed.
Can anyone give feedback on Travel Israel?
