Can anyone recommend any shore excursion companies in Haifa, Israel? We are going to be there on January 2011, and we port for only 11-12 hours.
Anyone with experience taking a JERUSALEM/BETHLEHEM excursion from Haifa? Wew are 2 adults and a 4 year-old son.

I will certainly appreciate any specific information that can help me to make a decision.

We used Guided Tours Israel in both Haifa and Ashdod and were very pleased with their guides and service.

We used Avitours and really enjoyed them. They are delightful to work with and designed the tour exactly the way we wanted it.

Check out our trip report and pictures at http://www.bully4.us/holyland2.html

Have a GREAT cruise!

You're welcome!! Both suggestions get high grades here on CC.

Reading the threads and getting suggestions and past travelers reviews of tour operators around the world is really one of the wonderful aspects of CC!!

Hello Charmingone,
I am considering Guided Tours as well. Could you tell me what made them a good company (service, knowledge, courtesy, punctuality, etc.).
