just a side note, I've purchased these buy 3 get 1 free and the 4th one cracked on the way... they don't packed them well

Aren't they all put into a bag and taken on the plane by hand (whether sealed bag or regular shopping bag i seal is not needed like what the manager suggested to me?

I have no direct knowledge but would be very surprised to find out that it was.

ETA:  Post your general location and a technically able DDFer may volunteer to desmantle and rebuild in a way that paters it.

I just wanted to also put out there that my group had an excellent driver, Yisroel from Executive Drives.  For thatt day, we were a group of 10 people and went down south (Qumran and Massada).  Normally, Yisroel does smaller groups but he arranged for a 10 person van and I am so happy he did.  The reason I am enthusiastically recommending Yisroel is for the personal touch and customer service he provided.  From before the trip (offering advice and tips) to during the trip (a few extras that were unexpected and very much appreciated) and even afterwards (we needed a van for 15 people and he arranged it through a friend), Yisroel was excellent and professional.  If you are seeking a driver that goes the extra mile, you should reach out to him.  His number is 972-58-411-1671.  I contacted him via whatsapp.

If one is just visiting from out of the country do they need a special license ?

technically yes. but the police aren't makpid as most of them can't understand the American license's.
What they care about is that's it's registered & inspected.

I've got another follow up on the duty free thing. My cousin bought several bottles of wine and had them put into the sealed bag.  They were flying TLV to IAD with a stopover in Newark.  Security did not want to let the bag in because the bottles were opaque.  Apparently, even though the TSA website has a page called Liquid Rules that says duty free liquid needs to be in a sealed bag, with the receipt dated within 48 hours and not tampered with, there is another secret rule not listed on the page that said liquid cannot be in bottles or cans that are metallic, ceramic or opaque (not see through).  This knocks off most red wines....
