Why It's A Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found round-trip airfare between New York and Tel Aviv for $1,303 in late June (Transaero Airlines). Add that to about $276 per person for a three-night stay at the Primo Royale, about $162 per person for a two-night stay at the Rimonim Mineral, and about $113 per person for a night at the Tal, and you'd pay at least $1,854 for the included airfare and hotels alone. For $55 less, this deal also gets you all transportation, guided sightseeing, and several meals.
More You can book additional nights at the Prima Royale from about $117 per person, or at the Tal from about $114 per person. Several optional tours are available, including a full-day excursion to Masada and the Dead Sea (from $94 per person), and a night tour of Jerusalem, with included dinner (from $61 per person).
