RCI had a cruise that spent 2 days in the port of Haifa ! At the Tourist Information Office , it was found out that the City of Haifa or the equivalent of its Chamber of Commerce was offering a free Hop On Hop Off  bus tour of the City that lasted 1 1/2 hour and made about 12 stops in various locations .  There was a very knowledgable guide in the bus who provided an articiulate description of the city and could answer questions from the tourists  

     The tour covers the main areas of the city , starts at 9.00 am besides the train station and runs every 1 1/2 hours . There were only 14 tourists at 9.00 am but they had to refuse about 20 people at 10.30 am .
