I ever expected to visit Israel but I took this opportunity to do a 10 hour RCCL tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. It was very well done and I am glad i did it as I do not think I will ever go back to Israel separately.

Great private tour to Masada. Traffic terrible so not able to do much else this day until after dark. Stayed in hotel in Jerusalem and took taxi to Jaffa gate. Went to church of the holy sepulcher after dark. Little less crowded. Both sites worth the trip. Get letter from cruise line at least 30 days in advance to stay off ship so you don’t waste three to four hours a day driving to ports of doing multi day Israel. Do private small group. Very crowded and you don’t want to have to wait on others. Terrain is very uneven. Lots of walking and steps. Be realistic about your mobility and fitness. Plan for your level of tour.

Did the ship tour to the Dead Sea and Masada, which was fantastic. Only disappointment was that we didn’t get a chance to go down to Herod’s Palace from the summit of Masada.
