I am taking a very quick trip to Israel w my husband arriving April 5 around 10 am (Thursday) and departing the following Wednesday April 10 also in the morning. I know we will only be able to scratch the surface of Israel, but I know that I want to spend 2 -3 days in Jerusalem.
I want to visit Petra and wonder if it would be best to go directly from the Tel Aviv airport to the dead sea Israel area. Please advise driver fares and time/distance. I figure we will arrive early enough to enjoy a full sea day.
The following day, I want to make the trek to Petra from Israel's dead sea. What is the best/quickest way to do so? Spend a full day in Petra and back to Israel that evening. I assume, we would come back to Eliat and fly to Tel Aviv, drive to Jerusalem the following day.
Please help! It is our first trip to the area. and Petra, Dead Sea and Jerusalem are the must do's on our itinerary, even if we are blasting through the area. We don't care to take public transportation and don't mind paying a premium for private travel if it is quality, safe and gets us to and from our destinations faster.
