Going for 3 weeks with family (4 kids). Staying in RBS, hoping to get around a decent amount, but not like a trip a day. Is it better to splurge on a rental (van - $900) rather than get around in busses and taxis?

Including price of gas? (About 6.50-7.00 a gallon)

We loved both, but went in November. Nimrod may be really hot if you're going now, whereas Tel Dan has more shade. If weather's not a factor, I found Tel Dan slightly underwhelming relative to other hikes we did, while Nimrod's Fortress was exceptional.
