Tours & activities
Israel Walking Tours is my tour website, offering private tours in the main cities of Israel. If I’m not free for a private tour, I can refer you to excellent tour guides who can show you around.
Abraham Tours is my favorite tour company for public group tours in Israel. They have a wonderful selection of budget-friendly, high-quality tours all around Israel.
If you love food – EatWith is a great platform to use for unique activities in Israel. One of the best experiences you can look for is Shabbat dinner with a local family.
Packing list for Israel
Not sure what to pack for your trip to Israel? You can use my ultimate packing list – season by season – to make a list that works for your needs.
Rentalcars.com is one of the top sites for renting cars around the world. I used it several times for my trips abroad, so I guess it works well in Israel as well.
If you’re planning to use public transport, one of the best apps to plan your routes is Moovit. Just multiply the expected travel duration because it seems like they don’t calculate traffic.
One of the quickest and most comfortable ways of traveling around Israel is the train. It doesn’t get everywhere, and it isn’t the cheapest option, but it might be useful in some cases. You can plan routes through their website.
