Help with Itinerary - Israel & Jordan

Jump to last reply

So I am going on a trip to Israel with two other friends 1 guy, 2 girls) on a Taglit-Birthright trip to Israel in two weeks. Our guided trip with Birthright ends March 21st and we wanted to spend a few days in Israel after that and then head to Jordan for a few days before going off to Turkey. So I have a few questions:

1) Because we will see most tourist destination in Israel with Birthright, does anybody have suggestions for a few days in Israel? We were thinking just spending time in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and exploring.

2) I was thinking of going to Eilat for a day or two to scuba dive and then cross into Aqaba and head north from there. After some reading, it seems like Eilat is more upscale touristy and expensive and there isn't much to see in Aqaba. Any experiences with that? Would it make more sense to just go to Jordan from Jerusalem?

3) Suggestions for best ways to travel from Israel to Jordan on a budget, but not compromising safety. I've heard buses are pretty easy, cheap and safe for Americans. Thoughts?

4) This might help answer the question above... We're planning to do an early morning tour of Petra and then spend a few nights in Wadi Rum and then head to Amman and fly to Istanbul. Any suggestions for best ways to do this? Any suggestions for things to see besides those two? And finally any good guides or people to contact to get this done? Willing to spend some extra money on a good guide who can really give a good, fun, and informative tour.

Thanks!
