Day 27 June 2, 2012
Well, today we do nothing. It is our last day, we leave at midnight tonight, so we decide not to take the optional tour—not to see more ruins, and instead decide to relax, pack and reflect on our journey. After a nice quiet breakfast we go back to the room, passing the pool area where preparations are being …
Day 26 June 1, 2012 Jericho
Good start to another beautiful day. The sun is shining, it is cool, and the birds are singing. We have an OK breakfast at the hotel before taking off in the van. Today is our last full day of tour in the Holy Land. Tomorrow there is an optional tour but I don't think that we will go.

I would recommend this hotel to my friends.
