    During Ramadan (Mar 10 - Apr 9, 2024), historic and cultural sites may close early and operate with minimal staff. The order of sightseeing may be changed to accommodate the holiday observance. Traffic congestion is common during Ramadan. Some hotels and restaurants may not serve alcoholic beverages. Entertainment may be limited to be respectful of the holiday observance. Modest dress is suggested during Ramadan (no shorts, short skirts, or sleeveless tops). Use discretion when drinking, eating, and smoking in public between sunrise and sunset.

    Upon arrival in Israel at Passport Control, you will receive an Israel Border Control / B2 Stay Permit called an "Electronic Gate Pass". Issuance of the pass replaces the need to stamp your passport. The Electronic Gate Pass is your official form of identification in Israel and must be kept in your possession at all times, and will be relinquished once you depart the country. Escorted tour group guests should bring this pass to the Welcome Meeting as your Tour Manager must record information from it to facilitate express hotel check-in during your tour. Failure to provide this pass at check-in will result in mandatory tax.

    Hotel check-in is 4 PM. If you have an early arrival and want to check-in prior to 4 PM you may pre-purchase an additional hotel night.

    Please note: Hotel checkout for a day use room is 6 PM. If you have a flight which requires a longer stay, you may pre-purchase a full post night.

    This is my 2nd tour trip with Gate 1 and I only have praises for their completed outstanding services. Everything was planned for just to ensure our enjoyment and security. They even have the extra arrangements for any assistance in emergency medical conditions. My husband came down with the early stage of pneumonia and the tour guide helped us from going to the hospital and staying with us the whole time and also got the local medical staff provided by Gate 1 to assist every single steps along the way. They even drove us to the pharmacy at midnight after the hospital discharged.
