Israel - travel by train & public transport

Our party of 6 were based in Jerusalem we were there for 9 days. Very convenient for traveling around. Stayed in Yemi Moshe area just outside the old city walls. In November (2012) you could not take a hire car out of Israel. See my various posts for Israel.

Yes I would suggest two days for Petra. Lots of places to ask for travel guidance. Look at the temperature, it can get hot, even in November we always had water with us.

Yes there was confusion over my post.

Last year, seven of us stayed in Israel for 10 days, we had the most fantastic time. This time six of us will be staying in Jerusalem in November 2014, previously we have stayed in the Yemin Moshe area and hired a mini bus to get around, e.g., Dead Sea, Tiberias, Arbel, Galilee, etc. etc.

This time we wish to use public transport and be be based in Tiberias for 2/3 nights and 7 nights in Jerusalem. Whats the best way for six of us to get to Tiberias from Tel Aviv then Tibreias to Jerusalem?

You can take the bus, but it would be more convenient to hire a car to drive you. Yes, it's more expensive but you will be dragging your luggage along and need to get to the bus and from the bus. A car service will take you door to do for less than $300 all inclusive. Because of your numbers there is a need to hire a driver in advance of any such travel.
