What is the best way to go to maaras hamachpela these days

Depends what you consider "Best" Or " safest"

You can either drive yourself,  take egged,  or take a tour.  Driving yourself is likely the cheapest,  but definitely not the safest..
If you want a tour,  there's Hoffman Tours and The Hebron Fund.

We took the egged bus, was a little roundabout but otherwise fine and a lot cheaper than a tour

I wouldn't, unless you are at least somewhat familiar with the area and maybe don't go off highways for side routes

Depends what areas you're frequenting.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
