2 day tour with hotel in Jerusalem

WHETHER you begin your tour from the port of Ashdod or from the port of Haifa, spending one night in Jerusalem saves time on driving and allows you to spend more time on sightseeing.

We will plan the trip according to your ship’s schedule and your preferred itinerary. We can depart from Ashdod or Haifa and on the second day you can return to your ship in Haifa or Ashdod .

We will be happy to take care of your hotel accommodations in any hotel class you like. (In most cases, our hotel rates are lower than the internet rates or the travel agents’ rates).

A private tour is your tour. Just let us know your preferences and requirements, and we shall plan your trip exactly according to your desires!

On November 1st we left from the port of Ashdod and again on November 2nd from the port of Haifa, on guided tours with Mr. Moti Kaufer. Our sister, Sheila Shanks, had booked the tours and there were six of us from the Prinsendam who travelled in a comfortable air conditioned minivan.
Mr. Kaufer gave us a running commentary as we drove the countryside to the various sites. He was very knowledgeable, personable and helpful.  We enjoyed touring with him and through his expert knowledge of the ancient cities of Jerusalem, Nazareth and surrounding areas, we have come to understand and appreciate your beautiful country even more. Our visit to the Dead Sea and dip in the briny water was quite an experience!

Forget the ship's tours. We found a private tour for 3 days in Israel and had no problems. Our tour guide was Moti Kaufer.
He can arrange for any size tour you need. Check out his information on line .He took no money up front. He arranged our schedule to meet our needs. It doesn't matter if your group is one religion or multiple religions, Moti gives a wonderful historic overview to Israel. He was prompt with pick up and return times to ship. He was knowledgeable, informative and passionate about his homeland. He went the distance , including insisting we experience fresh squeezed pomegranate juice, falafel sandwiches, and fresh bread dipped in herbs...
He made our trip very memorable! Lastly his prices are extremely fair and competitive with other guides. :)
