Keep it under $75 to avoid import tax
Beware that if you send a few packages close together, they may still charge you so it is best to wait a few days in between.

I find that Skyscanner shows most of the small charter flights ex-TLV including those that don't show on the normal OTA's.

Will be flying UA EWR-TLV in February, 2 adults and 4 kids.
Is there a way to accumulate all the miles in 1 account? It will not do me much good to have the miles in 6 accounts. Not a frequent travelor. I did book the tickets on 3 separate reservations. 1 thru Amex travel, 2 thru Chase travel, and the rest with a TA. Not sure if this matters

I did some research and it doesn't look UA has mileage family accounts. Any other program I can credit it to that allows family pooling?

PM sent.

Can you do baan chang elephant park and tiger kingdom in the same day in chaing mai?
When we were there, we got a driver to drive us all day for about $20 which included gas and everything.
We went to a whole bunch of places (Snakes, Crocs, Tigers, etc') and had the driver wait for us outside while we went inside. He had a chart with all the animal pictures, we pointed to which animals we wanted to see and he took us there.

When workforce is cheap, the service is usually better.
If or and other sites that only allow paying customers to review, and there are many reviews, you can rely on it.

Unless you are totally unaware of your surroundings and very bad at orientation, you should manage without guide.
Do a little reading before.
There are nice things to see in the city itself = walking distance.
I may not need a guide to get to the souk and back but I do want someone to take us to all the sites and give us the cultural and historical background. Without it, you dont know what you are looking at.

I also want to take a couple of half day/full day trips to other cities, the Berber villages, the  Atlas mountains, etc' and would be happy if someone can recommend a guide/company they were happy with.

I stayed at Riad Kniza. Stunning place, ridiculously amazing service.
Looks great. Not available for one of my nights  :(
I guess I'll just book something in a good location that has over a 9.5 review from 100 people or more.

I can use some trip planning help:

1) Can anyone recommend a great Riad they stayed out? It seems there are dozens of them with stellar review scores which makes me kind of suspect they are real reviews).
2) My wife will be B"H is her 7th month so I am looking for tours and activities that aren't too strenuous.Can anyone recommend?
3) Does anyone have contact info for a well priced guide that can give us private tours at our pace?
4) Can anyone PM with info for a local Rabbi who knows the Kosher food situation in Marrakesh?

Thanks all!

Still alive and now just $2870
BTW I never got my DDMS HT  >:(
