The guide I used, and reusing on Feb 6, is a little over $400 / day. He is licensed and that includes driving, including picking us up in TLV. I would highly recommend him. He gets into all tourist things for free, seems to get his meals for free, etc.

Even if you forget the nickels and dimes he saves, he did a remarkable job.
