I know it's not enough time but me and my fiancé are coming to Israel in late May for the first time and have just 2 days to explore Jerusalem.
We have found that many of the private guides we've emailed are charging fairly high fees so for us joining a group, finding a cheaper private guide or doing it ourselves is the solution.
We'll be staying in Douglas' favorite Three Arches and want to see Yad Vashem, the underground tunnels and since our 2nd day is on a Friday, being at the Western Wall for sunset (we hear it's worthwhile). Then if possible we've heard it's possible to arrange to join a local family for Shabbat.
So how best to split the days?
Thursday: Four Quarters Tour (Zion Walking Tour) and the Underground Tunnels
Friday: See the New City ourselves and make it back to the Western Wall in time for sunset?
How does that sound or would we be better off taking another Zion Walking Tour/United/Egged etc?
Thanks as always!
