Why It's a Deal According to a recent Kayak search, roundtrip airfare between New York and Tel Aviv starts at $895 in mid-January (Aerosvit). Add to that $243 per person for two nights at the Dan Panorama Tel Aviv, $190 per person for two nights at the Lavi Kibbutz Hotel, and $525 per person for five nights at the Dan Panorama Jerusalem, and you'd be paying at least $1,853 for accommodation and airfare—and that doesn't include hotel taxes. For just $446 more, this travel package gets you the international airfare, nine nights' accommodation, plus a full touring program including all transportation and entry fees, fourteen meals, and all taxes and fees.

More smarTours offers a four-night extension package to the Israeli beach resort town of Eilat. The package includes three nights at either the Dan Panorama Eilat or Rimonim Hotel Eilat; one additional night at the Dan Panorama Jerusalem; daily breakfast; and all taxes and fees included, from $499 per person for double occupancy (single supplement is $200). Within this package there is an optional full-day excursion to the ancient city of Petra in Jordan, which includes ground transportation, tours, and lunch, for an additional $239 per person. (Jordan visa fees and border-crossing fees are not included in this price and are paid upon entry.)
