I am interested in making a holy land tour to Israel in the next couple of weeks. I am interested in a personal guide with private car (no markings) who is also knowledgeable of Jewish and Christian sites. I’d like to include my own vague plans which is included in this e-mail. I am flexible as you are the experts in the field.
Are you able to arrange such a trip?
Begin in Jerusalem with the inspiring panoramic view of the Old City from the Mount of Olives. From here it is a short walk to Dominus Flevit and then a walk (or drive) to the Church of All Nations and the Garden of Gethsemane.
Continue to the Temple Mount, scene of Abraham’s offering of Isaac today marked by the Dome of the Rock.
Then, it’s on to the Western Wall, revered as Judaism most sacred site as the last remnant of the Second Temple.
Continue to Mount Zion, to visit the Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu, where Peter denied Jesus, King David’s Tomb, the Room of the Last Supper.
Begin at St. Stephen’s Gate, also known as Lion’s Gate, and visit the Pool of Bethesda - site of the miraculous healing of a paralyzed man by Jesus, and the Church of St. Anne, where Christian groups love to sing hymns as they visit.
Take the Via Dolorosa passing the Stations of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the ancient site of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus.
Garden Tomb – a rock hewn tomb believed by Protestant denominations to be the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection.
The New City is on today’s agenda. You can begin at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial, with its astounding new historical museum, Hall of Remembrance, Children's’ Memorial and other moving sites.
Nearby is the Israel Museum where among many other treasures you can delve into the mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Shrine of the Book and see the Model of Jerusalem at the time of the Second Temple.
On to Muhraka, the traditional site of Elijah’s confrontation with the prophets of Ba’al, with the Carmelite Monastery of St. Elijah.
The Mount of Beatitudes: The traditional site of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount with its beautiful view of the lake and its sacred sites.
Megiddo, the site of biblical Armageddon, to see the excavations of the ancient fortified city that was one of Solomon’s most important centers, overlooking the Jezreel Valley and the ancient Via Maris.
Yardenit – the baptismal site for pilgrims on the Jordan River south of Tiberias (ARRANGE FOR BAPTISM).
Down the Jordan Valley to the Dead Sea and Qumran - ruins of the ancient Essene settlement in whose nearby caves the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
Enjoy a walk through the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, a biblical oasis with a spring and waterfalls, where David hid from Saul.
In the afternoon, take the cable-car to the top of Massada scene of the epic stand by Jewish rebels at the end of the Great Revolt against Rome nearly 2,000 years ago. The new museum at the visitor’s center reveals the secrets of the daily life of the rebels, the story of the excavations, and how the site became one of Israel’s most important symbols.

stand atop the Mount of Olives as Jesus did and enjoy a remarkable view of the "Golden City" of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and Dome of the rock. Enter the Old City of Jerusalem where everyday life and customs within narrow, crooked streets have remained much the same over the centuries. view the Pool of Bethesda where Jesus performed the Sabbath miracle. Visit the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed for God's will to be done. Retrace the events in the final hours of Jesus' life as you walk the Via Dolorosa, "the Way of the Cross".

Drive to Beth Shean (1Sam 31:7-12) and walk through the excavations of the Greco-Roman city. Think of the pilgrims walking along the Jordan Valley on their way to the true Temple avoiding this pagan city. On to a Nazareth Village located on a pastoral Patch of farmland in the modern city of Nazareth for an authentic experience of the land of the Bible. You are greeted by “inhabitants” and feel Jesus’ teachings come alive along the Parable Walk. Continue to the Sea of Galilee. Visit Capernaum where Jesus lived during his ministry in the Galilee. Look at the mosaics at the Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes. Study the Sermon on the Mount from a breathtaking view on the Mount of the Beatitudes. Visit Kibbutz Nof Ginnosar and see the "Jesus Boat", a rare and excellent example of the kind of boat in which Jesus would have sailed. Enjoy a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee..
it’s on to Megiddo, the site of end-time biblical Armageddon, to see the excavations of the ancient fortified city that was one of Solomon’s most important centers, overlooking the Jezreel Valley and the ancient Via Maris. Drive to Caesarea where the Apostle Paul was imprisoned, and where Peter preached to Cornelius. Next, walk along the Path of the Patriarchs that includes ancient ritual paths and strategic lookouts on Jerusalem.
Ron: I am interested on organizing a 10-14 day trip for my mother and a companion to Israel. My Mom is along time active Hadassah member and officer, and wants to focus this trip on some of Hadassah's facilities. The departure date we have in mind is June 18.
We should plan on my Mom and a friend sharing a room.
My Mom is 86, but in many ways is really in her 60s. Most people do not believe she is as old as she is. Physically, she is in great shape for her age, but she is 86! She has had both knees replaced. She can walk fine - just not too far and not too fast. She can climb steps as long as there is a hand rail, just not too many.
The reason I want to organize a private trip is so that she can have it planned and conducted at a comfortable pace for her, with someone along who can help her when necessary. The itinerary should avoid sites that would present too much of a physical challenge for her. Obviously, we'll want a patient tour guide who is knowledgeable and experienced, particularly about Hadassah's facilities and activities.
Mom has been to Israel once before, in the 70's, so it's been a long time and many things have changed. But there are definitely some sites that she's seen, and does not need to repeat - Masada, the walk along Via Dolorosa and Yad Vahem are all examples of that.
I think we should start with a plan including Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa. She wants to see the Hadassah sites, so please include all of those. While in Tel Aviv, it would be fabulous if she could attend a concert and/or a theater presentation - will Zubin Mehta have anything going on then at Mann Auditorium? Finally, if there was a health spa of sorts, either at the Dead Sea or elsewhere, that might be a good idea for a couple of days.
I hope this gives you some information for a starting point. Obviously, I'd like to get an idea of the cost of this kind of trip when it's possible to project.
Can you help me with this?
I'd be happy to discuss a plan with you whenever you'd like - just call me at my office number below.
Many thanks for your help
Margaret: Dear guide,
Your name came up in my search for a private guide in Israel, and I would like to ask you a few questions (actually – many questions) on our upcoming trip that must be absolutely fabulous.
The 4 of us (potentially 6), are planning to visit Israel on March 8th through March 20th 2008 (we have already committed to these dates – no change there). We would like to see the best of Israel (the North, the Desert, and Jerusalem) as well as Petra (Jordan). We would like to spend one night in Bedouin tent and visit a Kibbutz, perhaps even plant something there.
We are interested in natural beauty and rich history, mainly – Jewish history (where there is something to look at in addition to listening to a story). We can do without the Christian and Muslim places, unless those are the outstanding examples of art or/and historical importance.
We would like to hike (definitely Masada, the Desert, the Northern mountains), but we view hiking as a way of exploring and sightseeing rather than a physical exercise.
In general, we wish to avoid crowds, and visit the most interesting sights, including those unavailable for large tours.
The same approach applies to our accommodation and dining preferences: small hotels & restaurants (B&B type) with some character, high quality service, and excellent authentic local food. We will rely on your advice in this area as well. Whenever possible we would like to stay in one place for at least two nights.
The flow of the trip should be approximately as follows (indicates overnight stays, but not all the sightseeing points):
I am looking forward to your favorable response covering the issues of availability and cost (for a party of 4 and 6 separately), and to your ideas on our itinerary. This trip has a special significance to us, an we have to make it unforgettable.
