Trying to finalize my itinerary.

Where can I go horseback riding with kids (ages 6-11)?

Can we visit Tel Dan and Rosh Hanikra on the same day?

Any recommended apps for self guided tours in Yerushalayim and Tzfas?

How long is the Ramparts Walk? (Is it good for kids, ages 6-11?)

Asking for a friend:
To whom this may concern,
I have had my Israeli driver's license since 2011 and have been driving in Canada since 1998. This past May I received a speeding ticket for the first time while driving during the morning hours on the empty highway by Pizgat Ze'ev, Jerusalem. The fine given was 1500 shekels and 10 demerit points. I'm interested in knowing if there is any way to lower the fine/demerit points as this is a first offence.

שואל לחבר:

לכל המעוניין,
קבלתי את רשיון הנהיגה שלי בארץ ב2011 ואני נוהג בקנדה משנת 1998. לפני כחודש קבלתי פעם הראשונה דוח תנועה במהירות בנהיגה בשעות הבוקר על כביש מהיר ריק ליד פסגת זאב, ירושלים. סכום הדוח הוא 1500 ש"ח ו10 נקודות. אני מעוניין לדעת אם יש דרך להפחית את סכום הדוח\נקודות (אולי לפי שזאת עבירה ראשונה).  תודה

Any recommendations for a moderately intense hike somewhere up North that can be done without a guide or technical equipment?

Tel Dan and Rosh Hanikra are pretty far apart. You could technically do them both in the same day, but it's a lot of driving, and skipping lots of great stuff in between. We did the southern Ramparts Walk in about 45 minutes, not stopping too often because it can get really hot up there in the summer. The northern section is supposed to be longer.

On the way up to Rosh Hanikra there is a nice horseback riding place in a moshav called Beit Oren. You can ride through the mountains and they have Jeeping as well.

Not sure where to post.  My friend recommended that I stay at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem but I checked the Good for Sale/Trade section and did not see any certificates available for LHW properties.  Did I miss the thread? 

Can you recommend a high-end hotel in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv where I can buy certs to save $$$?  It is our 25th wedding anniversary so I have to splurge on this trip but I would appreciate saving a little jack....

Thanks in advance.

Anthony

Southern? Isn't that around the Arab quarter? Any reason to do one over the other?

Anyone know a good (preferably American) dentist in Yerushalayim for a root canal?

Weirdly not, I got an appointment for next Wednesday, very confusing.
