We are starting to plan a March trip to Israel and Jordan. Splitting time between Amman and either Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. Couple preliminary questions:
1) Does Rick Steves have a tour book? I saw the videos on Amazon (he has one on Israel and one on Palestine), but I don't see any guidebooks.
2) Has anyone crossed the border lately? We are trying to decide whether to fly into Amman or Tel Aviv (or in one/out the other). Border crossing information seems pretty straightforward, but I've seen posts on TA about how complicated and problematic it can be. We are not renting cars by the way, so rely on public transportation and/or private guides.
3) In Israel, does a person need to or is there an advantage to moving hotels from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem? How long to drive between the two cities?
4) Last question for now: I've been to the Dead Sea resorts on the Jordanian side and they are truly an experience not to miss. Is there something similar on the Israel side?
Thanks in advance for your kind help.
