- This tour was full on each day setting off at eight o clock which was necessary in order to see everything.
Would recommend taking some Jordan currency and shekals as it was difficult to change English money so for the first day and a half didn't have any local currency in Israel. Also would take dollars or euros rather than pounds. which were much easier to spend in the shops.
Loved the Bedouin camp but after the meal the group and leader had a chat then the lights went out about 9.30 so nothing to do but go to bed.
In Israel everyone wanted to go on the optional tour to Bethlehem. Jericho and Ramalla but we were told that this now was not an option with Explore although it was in the trip notes However our guide planned a tour to Bethlehem and Jericho for us.
Our guides in both Jordan and Israel were both helpful friendly and we learnt a lot about the countries we were in from them.
I would recommend that Explore check the trip notes and amend them because anyone going to Israel will definitely want to go to Bethlehem.
