Went ashore and did our own thing by taking the shuttle into town. However, demonstrations were going on again and it made getting around very difficult.
Don't Miss: Don't bother going in unless you take a tour or want to go shopping
Took a tour to Ephesus and to Mary's House. If we had not seen these beautiful places before, the guide would have ruined it for us. Limited information on these ancient places and left us alone a lot of the time. Only interested in keeping us at the rug factory and a leather good store he took us to.
Don't Miss: Both places should be seen with a good guide who can bring life to each of these fabulous places.
Jerusalem. Although seeing the Holy City can be strenuous (for people our age), it was well worth it. The Via Dolorosa is a strenuous tour, but I'm glad I went. Bethlehem - didn't appreciate first stop being a shopping place.
Don't Miss: The Rock of the Dome Church
Took a tour to Nazareth, Galilee & Tiberius. Wonderful guide, very knowledgeable. Loved the tour because the guide was so enthusiastic about his City and he brought even more to this beautiful spot.
Don't Miss: Everything!
