Im trying to plan 4-5 days (depending on flights) in Jerusalem. I havent booked anything yet as we've only just decided to extend our time in London so we can fly over to Israel. I want to wander around Jerusalem old city and see the main Christian and Jewish places of interest and to go to the Dead Sea, Masada and Galilee. It will be somewhere around18- 30 June 2013.
Are there any particular days I should aim to be there or to avoid?
Could someone suggest any small day tours or a company I could book through. Id love to also see Petra in Jordan but depending on the political situation at the time.
