From the airport
If you are visiting Israel from abroad, then on arriving at Ben Gurion Airport the easiest and most cost effective way to travel is to take a ‘Sherut’ or ‘Nesher’ taxi (a small minibus) will take you to the entrance of the guesthouse.**
After collecting your luggage follow the exit signs through the main terminal. Just outside the main entrance, on your left you will see the minibuses, one of which will be travelling to Jerusalem. The cost is NIS55 or $16.
(**Ask for the Scottish Hospice or Scottish Church**)
