lone female mid 60's

I am staying in Natanya with a friend but would like to travel for 2-3 days touring some sites. Can anyone suggest tours and it is safe to a lone female to travel. Do you have any idea how much a 2-3 day tour would cost?

For two to three day tours look into Egged Tours, Rent a Guide, Bein Harim for starters.

And yes, it is perfectly safe for a lone female, of any age, to travel on her own. If you are here already you have probably noticed how safe it is in Israel - and if you haven't arrived yet - you are in for a very friendly surprise.

HI! Greetings from Netanya-there is no danger in a lone female traveling. ( I'm a lone female too) Where do you want to go? Some place are easier with a tour and others can easily be done on your own.

Lone female traveler here. I will echo Oreets and rdglady. I always rent a car when I am in Israel and I drive and travel alone most of the time. It is very safe. If you are inclined, you can rent a car in Netanya for a couple of days. If you are touring the north, traffic is not as much of a problem as in central Israel (between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem), and you will be able to see the sights at your own pace. I will defer to others regarding organized tours and public transit.

Another single woman here, living in Israel almost since biblical times, and echoing the others in saying it's absolutely safe. I don't drive - public transport is easy, inexpensive, comfortable, reliable and safe.

What places would you like to visit? Has your friend suggested anything?
