Israel is very accommodating in this aspect. If you tell ask them, they will stamp a removable paper insert (I believe) where you can remove it if you intend to travel to those countries. Or you can just carry two passports

O. K. - Here goes...
We spent 30 days on our own (no tours!) in Egypt last January. Absolute wall to wall excitment from 6:30 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. In Cairo, take the train (subway) from down town to the Gasa stop. Then take minibus to within 1/4 mile of the pyrmids. Ride camel if you must. In Cairo, the bazzar is a must - several hours. Visit Citidal on the hill top and get a view of Cairo. Visit the Egyptian Museum; take a break at the Hilton. Avoid the tourists. We were extremely lucky that we "latched onto" an Egyptian tour guide that got us into mosques that are closed to tourists. He also got us "Egyptian Prices" as opposed to tourist prices on every thing from trinkits to a dinner on a boat in the Nile. Taxis are cheap in Cairo. Get your price first! And don't be afraid to tip - but modestly. The egyptians are the friendliest in the world - and as retirees, we have traveled Austrailia, China, North America, Europe, etc. Leave your politics at home. Most everyone speaks English to some degree or other. Shopkeepers speak 5 or 6 languages. Oh, when you bargain in the shops, stick with ONE cirrency; many will try to confuse you switching from pounds, dollars, and euros. Keep a small calculator handy. We stayed in a businessmans hotel, handy to the train station for $18.00 U.S. dollars/per night with breakfast. Perfect for budget travelers. All in all they are wondefful people. We are going back in 3 months via Israel. Good lucl. It's the best place in the world to visit. Sorry about the spelling - just had to get this off.

I suggest that anyone traveling to the Dead Sea area should consider taking a scenic flight from the Bar Yehuda/Metzada airstrip for a bird's eye view of the famous Metzada fortress, the Dead Sea, the Judean Desert as well as the Jordan (which is on the other side of the Dead Sea). Not to be missed in the area are a dip in the Dead Sea itself, a visit to Metzada as well as a visit to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve with its small waterfall and pool in the middle of the desert.
