Israel Trip - last three days?

Jump to last reply

Hi all - I'm going on a birthright trip in Israel, 10 days guided bus tour including visits to Jaffa, Haifa, Rosh Hanikra, Akko, Tsfat, the Gamla Trail, Tiberius, a couple days in Jerusalem over Shabbat, Aran, Masada, Sderot, and then a day and a half in Tel Aviv ending Wednesday night.

I am going to be staying after the guided portion of the trip trip for a full Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and then flying out of Tel Aviv on Sunday morning. Every moment will be planned for the first 10 days, so I'm hoping to go back and get a non-scripted view of the region in my three free days.

Is it feasible to get back to Jerusalem for part of that time? Should I just stay and relax and enjoy Tel Aviv for the full three days? Should I go somewhere else? is Eilat worth it? Is Jordan feasible? And what is safe as a 23 year old first-time solo traveler? How much will my travel plans be effected by being there on a Friday night and Saturday? I am not religious at all. Does the impact of shabbat vary regionally? How much do I need to plan travel (buses etc) in advance? I have booked a hostel in Tel Aviv for the full extra time just in case, but I can always cancel it!

I think I will be all nature-d and jew-ed out by the 10th day, so for the last 3 days I'd really prefer to see art, history, culture, and especially politics and religion through a non-birthright affiliated lens! And to also spend some time relaxing!!

Any wisdom or advice is greatly appreciated!
