Nof Ginosar - is it easy to take a taxi to Tiberias and back

Hi. My partner and I are staying for 4 days in the Galilee at the end of April. We looked at the Scots Hotel - all booked. It's our first visit, part of a 2 week trip. If we stay at Nof Ginosar, is it easy to take a cab into Tiberias and back at night for restaurants, strolling, etc.? We will have a car but won't drive and drink, and we would rather not eat at the same place every night.

I think it's easy, but you'll probably have to call for a cab. They don't just wander by in Tiberias (as opposed to downtown Tel Aviv), and they certainly don't wander by Nof Ginnosar.

It's a short ride. I'm sure that the hotel will order one for you.

Would it be easy to get a taxi in Tiberias after dinner to return to Ginosar? If taxis do not cruise at taxi stands, how would I hail a taxi? Any idea what a taxi rider would cost?

No problem. The staff at Nof Ginosar couldn't be friendlier. Just have reception order a cab and arrange a pick-up time to return you to the hotel.

Or ask the restaurant to order you one. I agree -- this will be very easy.

You could just get on a bus! They run into the wee small hours.

Nos 840, 841, 963, 63 all go past Ginosar.

Bus? I never thought of that as an option? How long is the bus ride? Are buses frequent at night? Is a schedule/map posted anywhere online?

Ask at the hotel desk about schedules.

Take a taxi :-)
