Can you give a rundown of the pros and cons?
It's a lot further away from J'lem!


In Kfar Kedem, we got dressed up (like in Eretz Bereishit)
rode donkeys, sat in a tent and ate the Pitot we baked.
On both occasions, we had a private group.
It was 10+ and 14 yrs ago when we went.
We had a much younger group of children at Kfar Kedem (14 yrs ago)-very pleasant overall. (our youngest was over a year)
The guide at Eretz Bereishit was less warm in his role.
YMMV
Our stop at Kfar Kedem was on our way up north.
Eretz Bereishit was on our way down south.

Last time we were in E"Y (Nov. 2015) it was too dangerous to go to Chevron. This time we'd like to go, but still don't feel comfortable driving. What are our options for an organized tour or secure bus ride to Chevron? Kever Rochel is fine as well, but if it's not included, we can drive there ourselves.

Dan- When are you going to Israel? I will be going with my 7 yr old this week, and am looking at the same places you are ( Chocolate making/Eretz Bereishit). Also, I will be based in Efrat, so it is closer to me, but am hopefully going to do bread making at Pat Bamelach. heard amazing things about it.
