      We used the ship's tour for convenience. i am not sure that you can simply get a tour from the quayside at Ashdod .Jerusalem is at least 1h away by coach ( and presumably taxi) and we were concerned re possible delays and missing the ship in case of any security delays. Pre booking may be possible. There is also usually a ship's tour which includes Bethlehem . This is in Palestinian control and drivers have to switch as Israelis ( jewish) are not allowed into Bethlehem. There was at least one American couple who pre booked a 2 day tour so left the ship at Haifa ( we went to Acre on a ships tour) and they went via Galilee , stayed ovenight on shore , then onto Jerusalem and rejoined the dhip at Ashdod. . Sorry , I cannot advise a specific company - try the internet Hope this helps - enjoy your trip! ian Cox.
