Shalom Oded,

I just wanted to personally thank you again for the wonderful tour! I know it was only a short time that we had to spend together last month in Jerusalem, but I can't wait to return to Israel for a more in depth look. You made such incredible accommodations in such short notice. Your insight and good conversation was great for a weary traveler! Thank you so much!

Ricardo Shalom,


The most popular GPS program in Israel is IGO you must see if it's possible to install it in The GPS you buy.


If you have an iPhone Waze is a free great GPS application, I use it since I have my iPhone.


I have A very good GPS that I’m no longer using I will be happy to rent it to you for symbolic price.


If you use my service as a tour guide for at list 3 days you'll get the GPS for free for the time you are on your own.


Thank you so mach

Hi there!

I planning on renting a car in Israel for 2 weeks in the spring. Renting a GPS with the car will cost me more than a new GPS, so I want to buy one.

Does anyone here have a recommendation for a good GPS for Israel.  Must have English interface, of course...


Thank you all!

Ricardo (Atlanta)

Pamela shalom,

I think the best for you is to com on February or March. It is the end of rainy season and not to hot yet. Flowers are in bloom and fields are green. In this time of the year   you can get good hotel rates. Recommend you to have a look on www.israeltour4u.com

For moor information concerning visiting Israel. If you need moor details I'll be happy to assist.

Millions of birds migrate throw Israel twice a year.

March April after winter from Africa to Europe.

September October after summer from Europe to Africa.

This is best time to see them in the

Hula valley.

WOW! This is new to me. Thanks!

I'll try to find more information about this on the net.

Thanks again! This forum has been a tremendous help for me! 

<![CDATA[Free tours]]> http://www.gvsquare.com/forums/f_12/m272.html By: Oded guide

You are absolutely writ for not using unauthorized tour guide. At the Jaffa gate you can have a free tour in the old city. The tour   guides are government licensed. They do  A good job and expecting to get A tip.

I do only private tours.

<![CDATA[Tour guide for few hours]]> http://www.gvsquare.com/forums/f_12/m271.html By: Diego*

Hi there,


I want to hire a tour guide services only for a few hours in the old city of Jerusalem.

Next to the tourists information centre there are always these guys offering their services, but from what I understand they are not authorised guides. I've been to Jerusalem several times and I always see them there...

So, how can I find a guide that is authorised and will agree to guide us just for 2-3 hours? (All the Via Dolorosa and Holy Sepulchre)

Thanks! Laughing

Shalom from Denmark!

We're planning on coming for the Dead-Sea this winter.

Our travel agent is connected only to the big hotels there, but can't tell us about more "economic" places to stay.

Do you know what options we have if we want to stay in a youth hostel or something like that?

We don't need anything fancy. We just need private bathroom and access to the water (even by short bus ride, as long as it is active on Shabbat as well)

We're visiting Israel every other year, in the Dead-Sea mainly. If we can find a cheap place to stay we could come even every year!

Toda raba!

If you did it in the past you must know what a wonderful experience it is. To get to know Israel and the nice people living in the kibbutz. I wish you  A great time. 

<![CDATA[Stay in kibbutz?]]> http://www.gvsquare.com/forums/f_12/m174.html By: Martin*

Long ago (in the 70's) I was volunteering in a kibutz (Sdot-Yam), and now my nephew is interested.

Is this program still available? Where should we find out how it's done these days? Is there a website for that program?

Thank you! I really miss Israel...


<![CDATA[ Bethlehem]]> http://www.gvsquare.com/forums/f_12/m163.html By: Oded guide

An Israeli tour guide is not permuted to cross the check point to Bethlehem.  He can drive your guests to there and arrange summoned on the other said to meet with them and guide in the city.

There isn't mach to do in Bethlehem for a full day; I recommend to do tow hours there and the rast of the time in Jerusalem. Thanks.  

<![CDATA[Question on behalf of my gusts]]> http://www.gvsquare.com/forums/f_12/m162.html By: שפריר*

We have guests in our company, and next weekend they would like to visit Bethlehem.

Is it possible for them to hire an Israeli Tour-Guide and to go with him to visit the holy places there?

What is the common practice when tourists in Israel wishes to spend a day in Bethlehem?

<![CDATA[Jerusalem first]]> http://www.gvsquare.com/forums/f_12/m151.html By: Oded guide

Jerusalem of course. In the early days of the trip travelers are still full of energy and power.

Jerusalem has  to  many important details to study to mach history. Would be a shame to reach the city tired after  days of traveling. It is recommended to leave Tel Aviv for the end. Tel Aviv has great beaches, shopping centers, instatements. That is the best place to relax and get daddy for the flight home.
