Cairo from any port is best done on ship's tour, especially at the moment. ............... Haifa you can negotiate a taxi or minibus outside the terminal for Nazareth, Gallillee etc. ........ Or take the train a short distance to the town & crusader fort of Acra (various spellings). ............ Ashdod a little more difficult because the taxis at the port seem to have a monopoly so negotiations are a little more one-sided. Jerusalem is about 90 mins away. In the (pedestrians-only) walled city you need a guide cos its a rabbit warren. Free tour (guide expects a tip) at http://www.newjerusalemtours.com/daily-tours/new-jerusalem-free-tour.html ..........Bethlehem is complicated since it's Palestinian-controlled, only tour buses can cross, so you'd need a ship's tour. ..............

Easiest and best way to see Israel is by www.guidedtoursisrael.com, run by Alon Schneider. Small groups, full days, including Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and knowledgeable guides. Enjoy the experience.
