Planning to be in Jerusalem for a family vacation in January. This is our first trip there. I am excited although have a lot of concerns. Your help and advice would be most appreciated.
1. We were recommended to visit the Tower of David light show. Any advice on how to reserve tickets from the US, and are there any discounts if you do it online?
2. Will we have a problem if we do not rent a car? We are making Jerusalem our base, and just doing day trips.
3. Is there a website such as US HopStop that let's you plan public transportation trips?
4. What is cab situation like? Can we hail a cab in the streets or do we have to call for it? We need to visit family outside of Jerusalem (about 20 minutes away). Will cabs go there or do we need to plan to take a bus?
Sorry for a lot of questions. Just trying to save myself the aggravation during the vacation. Thank you!
