Hello, Patti. Moti Kaufer is indeed the best, most polite and honest guide I have ever encountered. Yes, you need to contact him by email.

Has anyone used Ya"lla Tours USA recently for private multiple day tours in Israel and if so was it a good experience?

Probably better and cheaper to work directly with a licensed tour guide in Israel. They can assist with accommodation or you can book directly with the hotel for cheaper prices than those offered on their site.

Good morning. I will be traveling to Jerusalem this coming weekend and staying four nights. In addition to touring Jerusalem, I would like to visit the Dead Sea and Masada as well as Bethlehem and Jericho. I am nervous about taking a group tour because I am concerned that I will lose the experience of being a local walking causually through and experiencing the vibrancy of a neighborhood. Am I overthinking this?

Response fromrdglady|
Your concerns are definitely valid. The up side is that a group tour is less money,than a private tour. You can do,the Dead Sea and Masada with a transportation only group " tour" Originally offered only by Abraham tours, they are now offered by Ben Harim as a sunrise tour option, and possibly others. Bethlehem and Jericho are in the PA administered areas.You access them via Arab bus or taxis.
