Going to Israel for the first time in two weeks. We are staying in Jerusalem for 3 days and then want to go to Eilat and into Jordan to see Petra. We don't want to rent a car in Jerusalem if at all possible to drive to Eilat.
The day we leave Jerusalem, we want to get up very early to take a trip to the Dead Sea and Masada and then on to Eilat. If possible, we want to then get dropped off at the border crossing that night so we can stay the night in Aqaba in Jordan.
Could we hire a taxi in Jerusalem to do this? Or better yet, does anyone know of a good driver for hire in Jerusalem that they have used that could make this trip? We know this will not be cheap, but really do not want to rent a car if we can help it. Thoughts?
