We are planning a trip to Israel this summer and will be staying in Tzfas for several days. We are interested in touring Akko, has anyone done it on their own recently ?
Would you recommend?
I'm wondering if I need to do it with a guide since it is an Arab neighborhood?
I've gone by myself. It's generally pretty safe but there was some extreme violence during the last Gaza operation.

Looking for a place to stay in northern Israel for a few days during last two weeks of August. There's very little on Airbnb. Are there any other sites or sources?

Expedia, you have to be creative with the search. search for zimmer,  home etc. in northern district, israel or specific cities.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Mehadrin restaurants in the Golan?

Did you end up finding any?

Also what would be your top things we shouldn't miss?

Sounds good as I was planning to do those two attractions.

Do you have contact info or do they have a website?

Does anyone know where we can get shabbos food catered and delivered to us in Tzfat? Mendy's said they don't do this in the summer months. We would need a mehadrin hechsher ..

Thanks!

Planning an Israel trip, I have 2 days up north (driving up from Jerusalem wed morning driving back Friday morning). One day I want to do tzfas, what should I do for the other day? Does it make sense to go all the way up to the Golan and do some of the above-mentioned places there or is there what to do lower down (in the tevria area maybe?) that it isn't worth it to shlep up for a day?
