This summer a friend is going to be visiting me in Israel. It is her first trip since 1971! We will be touring for 9 days. Last night we planned an itinerary and I just called Israel to make reservations for both the Kotel Tunnels and the Palmach Museum. We have exact days we want to go to each.
The Kotel tunnels for a day at the end of August--the choice offered was 8:30AM or 1:50PM--not exactly the mid morning tour I wanted.
The Palmach Museum was slightly better and I was able to get a 12:30 tour.
My point is, if you are traveling on your own and want to visit these places, it is imperative that you book your tours now so you are not disappointed.
