I think you're going to too many hotels. I would be drained checking in and out so many times. Besides that - it looks like you really want to cover a lot of ground in Israel and your itinerary looks great!

I know it's a lot a lot of hotels. But considering I have a tour guide and the suitcases go in the trunk it's not the worst.. in terms of attractions am I missing something or one day has too much?

Itinerary looks great (obviously a lot packed in, but looks like you are okay with that).

I would cut ATV on Sunday (is there ATV rentals in Tzfas?) because you'll have a lot of driving to do going to Rosh Hanikra and back to Teverya. Besides, you'll do Jeeping later in the week.

I think he will have the time to do it all....it is not that far Tzfas to Rosh Hanikra and back to Teveria....Rosh Hanikra is 2 hours at most and then the rest of the day is open pretty much.

I'm having a 10 hour tour guide.. ATV is open and you drive on your own. Jeeping is more closed not fully and you dont drive it two different experiences in my opinion. Is Hoffman tours for Friday recommended or any here knows someone better? (Read on the forms on someones TR having used them)
