Follow-up on Israel Tours for individual

Jump to last reply

I am an Asian-American male planning a first-time trip to Israel in November for 7-10 days. Plan to stay in Netanya and travel around by bus/train. I plan to do individual trips to Haifa, Jerusalem and Golan by myself. Petra will be next trip and don't plan to see Eilat.

Thank you to Ayalag for previous posting about a tour operator in Israel.
Q #1: Since I wont be using a tour guide most of the time, can I get around via bus / train with just english - especially to Tel Aviv and back again to Netanya on a daily basis. Is Egged also in English? Sounds like YES, but I want to confirm.
Q#2: Any other possible tour ops I can contact?
Q#3: How dangerous is it to get lost in Jerusalem for a couple of hours, especially walking along the Via Dolorosa?

Is a tour guide necessary at all? Should a first-timer consider Trafalgar or Gate 1 or something like that instead?

I have traveled through Morocco, Egypt, Turkey - and never had problems. Thank you all for your assistance.
