eco desert tours and Tel aviv accomodations

My husband and I are planning a trip to Israel in may we having difficulty finding accomodations with character class in tel aviv is seems most places that call themself historic really mean "old " and unrefurbished. After all the country is only 58 y/o !Any reasonable recommendations? We will have car so we dont have to stay in tel Aviv . I have relatives in hertzliah it can be anywhere in a 30 minute range . The highlight we have planned is a 4 day tour to petra and the desert with a group called desert eco tours. It looks fab has anyone heard of them? thoughts?

thanks california dreaming

Just wanted to let you know that one of our travel programmes here in Australia (Getaway) did a piece on Desert Eco Tours (Jordan tour). They highly recommended it and it looked fantastic value for money. Am really interested in doing this trip with them, so will really appreciate a review from you! Thanks

CalGal - Can't wait to hear how you liked it! I'll be watching the forum! I have been dealing with Gil at DesertEcoTours, and have been impressed with how promptly he answers the e-mail. I just called him to give him our credit card number to reserve the tour, and he was really nice. He said it is very hot there!

Nefertari- Just got back two weeks ago from a fantastic trip to OZ and NZ. We loved Melbourne! What a delightful city!

We just came back from a tour with Eco desert tours and it was a big disappointment. They are extremely expensive and will charge you cancellation fees if you will change anything(even without cancelling). The program that they promised was changed completely by the guide and he claimed that it was our fault since we agreed to the change. It was not true and nobody even asked us about it. They were nice to us only until we signed their paper and from then on they couldn't care less. From their attitude towards us I really cannot believe that anybody enjoyed their tours unless he never went with any of the other wonderful Israeli tour companies. They are rude, expensive and worthless. I really believe you should take someone else..

Gulika:

I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with Desert Eco Tours. I remain very pleased with the private tour that we took with them two years ago. We had a terrific tour guide, everything went smoothly and was handled in a highly professional manner. Yes, the private tour was costly, but we had a completely positive experience, and I would continue to recommend them highly.

Dear Gulinka and Dumela - TripAdvisor is not the place for a discussion between the two of you about a particular booking.

Please take your comments offline, otherwise I will request from TripAdvisor to cancel your accounts, and believe me they will !!

Ditto - gripe about an operator is legit m- until it becomes a personal vendetta. And so is the operator's version of the story. Threats are not, in my opinion
