Chevron And Kever Rochel Master Thread
« on: April 25, 2010, 02:24:36 PM »
Anyone know what options are available for a trip to Chevron?!  (from Jerusalem)

I've heard of Artzeinu but they do it on Thursday which is not an option..

I would preferably want something on Friday.

Either a tour or public transport to Chevron (not just Kiryat arba) and back...

Thanks

Hebron Fund Tour has a great tour with famous tour guide Simche Hochbaum who lives in chevron & knows every inch there. all other tours in Chevron doesnt come close to his tour.  052-431-7055

Simche Hochbaum also gives a great tour in the jerusalem old city in the Temple Mount gates and Moslem quarter, i did both tours with him & it was great

I was just there- I took the #160 bus from the Central Bus station, they had one almost every hour throughout the day. I think it was 9 shekel a way.
The ride was about 1:15 since it stops alot in Chevron and Me'orot Hamachpela is the last stop.

BTW the #163 goes to Kever Rochel for 8 shekel roundtrip. It goes down Geula every hour in the morning until 11am and then 1PM, 3PM and 5PM... 30 min ride.

Nine passengers vans are rentable from some places, but they are only stick shift. Some guides have their own and will drive and guide you. Otherwise you can hire a driver with a large van-you may not want a guide in that case.
