I'm a single non-religious Jewish woman planning my first trip to Israel. I'll be there 9 days, arriving on a Tuesday, and want to make the best use of my time. I wont have a car, so I'll have to rely on tours. I'd like to take a tour to the North and don't know if it would be more interesting and beautiful to do the West coast trip to Ceaserai, Acre and Rosh Hanikra for one day or take a two day tour which includes Tzfat and the Golan Heights but not the West coast.
Any suggestions for 9 day itinerary?
Also, in Jerusalem, I'm considering staying in either the American Colony hotel or the Harmony Hotel. Which would be the safest, most pleasant and easiest to get around from? Or is there a better alternative?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
