israel and petra

Jump to last reply

We are two couples in our 60's and 70's who never visited Israel, but have traveled extensively in other countries on our own. We will be going to Israel on July 26 for 15 days. We wanted to go to Tel Aviv for two days and then go to Petra. Is it advisable to go to Petra at the beginning or the end of the trip? We will be using a private tour guide for 5 o 6 days to Haifa, Galilee, Golan Heights to start and then go to Jerusalem for two days on tour and two days on our own. We are questioning whether to have the guide take us to Masada and the Dead Sea or go by a private tour to Eilat and then Petra. Will we be able to get a taxi or car service to the airport on a Saturday? We are also interested in Hotels in Jerusalem.
Thanks for all suggestions
Sonya
