Star gazing tour in Mitspe Ramon (5 Replies)
We would like to do an astronomy tour during our visit on November 12th. The guru Ira is not giving tours on Saturday and neither is Tourist Israel/Negev Night Sky Tour. Does anyone have any experience with Bateva Bateva (one 8 inch Robotic Catadioptric telescope for 1250) or Deep Desert (1 hr; 2 telescopes for 1200), or have any other suggestions?

Traveling from Tel Aviv to Cairo (1 Replies)
Hi! I am in Tel Aviv for a few days with a group of three and we are interested in traveling to Cairo since it is relatively close. I found a tour with the Tourist Israel company that would include a flight from Tel Aviv to Eilat and then an estimated 8-12 hour drive from the Taba Border to Cairo. They have offered assistance with crossing the border both ways and a guided tour of Cairo. My biggest concern is if it would be safe to travel by land in the desert? I have spoken to a few Tel Aviv...More

Most people here will second the comment that crossing the desert via bus is not the safest thing to do at the moment. Your best option is prob. to work with a travel agent to purchase tickets on Air Siani and fly. They offer flights between Israel and Cairo daily but only travel agents can book the tickets. They are actually run by Egypt Air, but due to how parts of the Arab world view Israel, Egypt Air didn't want to land it's marked planes in Israel, so they formed a paper airline...More

Petra Tour from Jerusalem (1 Replies)
I will be travelling to Israel in July and would like to add on a short tour to see Petra. From my research so far it seems that it would be easiest to take a formal tour for this portion of the trip. I am currently thinking a 1.5-2 day tour from Jerusalem would be best and am looking at the following tour companies: 1. Tourist Israel 2. Petra from Israel 3. Desert Eco Tours (I've seen this one a lot on the forums, but not any recent reviews) 4. Abraham Tours I'd love any reviews on...More
