I have been reading Margie's trip reports...they are amazing.We are leaving September 8th /08 from NYC and need some advice.
We will be in Jerusalem and want to take a day trip to the Dead Sea- Is that possible by bus or private car better?
We want to travel from Jerusalem - Eilat- I was reading in an earlier post about the Egged bus so I guess I will book that 14 days in advance.
Once we are in Eilat we want to travel to Petra and not sure if guided tour is an only way.How do you get to the border crossing in Eilat? bus ?
Also did you guys ever heard of a hotel from Petra picking guests up at the border crossing-of course for a fee and take us back to the hotel in Petra?
I would pay the $110/each way and I think I would prefer that then have Echo tour organize some guides on the Jordanian side waiting and be at their mercy.Margie and her husband are both very brave and like adventure- I would like to limit potential disaster and I'm not that brave....I admit it!Reading her report is fantastic and loved all her photos...helped me decide what we must see and what we are interested in and the rest can just edit out .
Ok so from Petra back to the border crossing then 1 night rest in Eilat and back on to Tel Aviv by ? bus?
are there any egged buses from Eilat to Tel Aviv or only from Jerusalem?
I know I asked too many questions and if you are able to help with ideas please do.
