Israel Tour for Seniors

Touring can be an exhausting experience and especially touring Israel. The Old City   of Jerusalem cannot be done by car, and touring many sites requires much walking.

Touring on wheel chair  can be even more challenging, as not all sites are “wheel chair friendly”, although much effort has been done in recent years, to make National parks in Israel more accessible.

If you have a handicap sign for your car please bring it with you!

Bellow is a suggested tour of the Holy Land, with aids to minimize walking.

Day tour of Jerusalem:

A tour of the Old City   of Jerusalem involves much walking and many steps. A new service of gold carts can ease the experience of touring the old city and save also much time. 

The cart can reach most of the sites in the old city, and saves much time and effort.

Hourly cost of the golf cart: $30

Daily cost of guide + transportation: $700
