We are a family of 4 (kids aged 9 & 13) and did an Israel highlights tour 2 years ago. We are returning hoping to do "the best of the rest"! Ayelet and Shalom tours seem to offer an almost identical itinerary (some of which we've done already) so which one? While private guides are great they are expensive for more than a few days and we enjoy the company of a smallish group. Any suggestions?
