Seeking advice for first time solo trip to Israel

Jump to last reply

I hope to travel solo to Israel in September. I will be 62, female, experienced in solo travel throughout Europe, but a first timer to the Middle East. Ideally, I'd like to spend a few days in Tel Aviv, then pick up a tour to see places like Petra, Masada, Jordan and other sites yet to be determined, then spend a week self-guiding in Jerusalem. Can anyone suggest a company that might offer a weeklong package deal, or perhaps daily tours that I can pick up when I get there?

I'm early into the research part of this trip, so am very flexible as to where to go and stay, but am a budget traveler with moderate expectations regarding accommodations. I also don't need a particularly religious experience; I'm more interested in the history of the region. Since single supplements are often quite expensive, I would consider accepting a room mate.

Any recommendations are appreciated.
