Hi, Im taking my parents and my aunt to Israel for the first time. We are arriving in Ashod through the cruise line on October 4. We will be in Ashod for two days and in Haifa for one day. They are elderly. Last year I went with my husband and we hired a taxi. It was a bitter-sweet situation. We told him were we wanted to go, but at the end of the day, he took us were we thought we needed to go. He even stopped us at a diamond factory, even though we were not interested. At the end of our trip (2 days) he requested more than we had agreed. My husband paid him and then he started demanding a tip. My husband gave him $100 and he said it wasn't enough. At that point we just walked away.
This time around, I would like to hire a taxi ahead of time so there is no confusion. Im not sure who to hire and that is reasonable? Please help..
