The itinerary is a good idea.
Can improve with the following corrections:
- the tour to Cesaarea, Acre, while interesting, is a nice to have, would be better to spend more time in Jerusalem.
- some tour guides in Israel that work for the BeinHarin agency are very good. If you get Amir from Galilea as a guide, you are lucky.
On the other hand if get an amercian accented guide called Lome as your guide, ask to go on another bus, this guide is mentally unbalanced, aggressive and completely inadequate.
- i would rather cross the border to Jordan from the Dead Sea directly, as opposed to returning to Tel Aviv, spending the night in Eilat and then crossing to Jordan.
- hotel in Eilat (C-hotels)is low quality, picking by yourself you get better cost/benefit. But the city itself is to skip.
- the stay in the planet camp in Wadi Rum is excellent. Nadji is an excellent host.
- the guide in Jordan, called Ali, is excellent.
- crossing to Egypt by Car from Jordan is a clear and big mistake, the biggest mistake of this package. Too long, too complex, too tiring, not secure. Instead, fly to Cairo.
- hotel in Egypt is poorly located on Giza, close to Pyramids, bur far from every good restaurant and everything else, stay in Cairo.
- we had a problem with our agency manager in Cairo, a guy called Ramadan. Our hotel was not the one we bought, instead we were put in a lower quality hotel from the same group.
- We were also charged by Mr Ramadan, the agency manager in Egypt a 70 USD fee in cash for an early check in at the hotel. Later we asked the hotel for the receipt of those 70 and found out that the hotel never received it, in the hotel systems they simply had given us a complimentary early check in... smells very fishy.
