A visit to the Bedouins in Midbar Yehuda (jeeping). I did it this past summer. It was awesome. It's not just visiting history, it's watching it live! Must be done on a jeep tour. I did a 2 hour tour. Longer tours are available too. Anyone else here did that?
This is a must do
Toldos Avraham Yitzchok Tish.
Highly recommend this too

I seen the Segway tour in one of the TR's. Probably will be doing several day tours.

Just messing around looking at different tours but most sites don't have prices. Is this normal?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

If you have to ask...

I realize this might be the wrong language for you, but the numbers are kind of universal.

Many activities you see online are third party booking agents and not the actual provider. The prices can fluctuate depending on the wording and language of your request.

Here's the English version of one of the sites I posted above. Looks like it's $55 per person for 2 people joining a group guided tour, or $80 on a private tour.
