Israel...when is it better to go, Nov or Dec 2012???

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have been talking about traveling to Israel/Egypt forever! We have done our research, and now feel comfortable with the tour group we have chosen, EO Tours. Several questions for anyone that may have had experience with our concerns below:

1. Would love to hear feedback, of any kind if anyone has taken an EO tour to Israel/Egypt.

2. Because we can save a couple hundred dollars per person, (I know that doesn't sound like much, you tell me if I'm being silly!), we have chosen to travel in Nov or Dec 2012. Basically we can only travel those two months because of work schedules. However, if we travel Nov 7, the price is $300.00 more per person than if we wait until Dec 4, 2012. Another tour type with the same company offers tours days prior to Thanksgiving 2012, and just after Thanksgiving , $100.00 more PP than if we travel Dec 10, 2012. SO, the real question IS, are there any factors that I should be aware of that would make either Nov 2012 or Dec 2012 more attractive? Weather wise, HOLIDAY travel wise, which is what I most concerned about. Not traveling to the Middle East during the holidays, but traveling in/out of the USA in general around the 2 biggest (USA) travel holidays.

3. ANY input, suggestion, etc. will be appreciated!
