Any recommendations for Kever Rochel/Chevron for 9 people? (Not the 3-4 am option)

I got quoted 1000nis which seems expensive.

Seems normal if it's a guided tour.

Just got back from Israel, and saw (and used) the signs for the trips to Chevron and Kever Rochel. They have it every Monday and Thursday, and it leaves at 1:30 pm from 11 Yechezkel Street near Kikar Shabbos. Depending on the crowd, that's what your vehicle will be. If more than around 10 people show up, im assuming he will bring a bus, less then that and he will use a tender like by me. Should only 2 people happen to show up for the day, he told me that he will just take you in his private car. The price is 100 shekel per person, and he goes to kever rochel, Me'aras Hamachpela, kever Yishai & Rus, as well as the Jewish Cemetary in Chevron. The smaller the crowd, the easier it is to get a agreement how much time to spend at each place. Im my case, we all decided to skip the cemetary there. His number is 050-417-1979.


Is this information still correct?

We did Hoffmann last year. Worked out well with pickup from our hotel.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Did you feel that Hoffman added enough as a tour guide to justify the increased price relative to just paying for an Egged bus to go there yourselves?

I didn't. Especially since we usually avoid even a good tour. However, this being Chevron, we wouldn't have felt comfortable doing it on our own, and Hoffman did a perfectly good job of giving us the highlights.

Hoffman charges $59 for an adult and only 10% discount for little kids, which seems pretty steep.

Shalom meets you in Chevron and gives you a guided tour of the city, which defeats our goal of not feeling safe driving in that area and wanting bulletproof/army-escort transportation (he did offer to meet us in Gush Etzion, but for the price he's charging - 1000 NIS - we'd rather someone who will pick us up in Yerushalayim).

Still looking for more feedback or other suggestions... May end up taking Egged from Central Bus Station to Chevron, or the early Friday morning netz option.

Simcha Hochbaum does tours through the Hebron fund... he lives in Chevron and probably knows more than almost anyone else.

His tours run through the old city as well as the Maarah. Not sure about pricing or pickup, but the Egged bus should be bulletproof.

We would love to go with Simcha Hochbaum, but the only day he's giving his tour during our trip is when we'll be up in the North.

YOu may be looking for the guy that goes early fri morning to Kever Rachel & Mearas Hamachpeila; 052-766-1777

Now looking into this, but nobody ever answers at this number. Any updated info about the Friday morning Kever Rochel/Chevron netz option - contact info, pickup location and time, cost?

Is there an overnight option for both Kever Rochel & Chevron every night, or just Thursday nights?
