My church is going to Israel to visit the Holy Land. They have made the trip numerous times over the last 15 years, but never had anyone come along that used a wheelchair.

I've already been told that there is a lot of "getting on and off the bus", and that some of the stops along the route may not be very accessible (steps, dirt/gravel, etc).

Has anyone traveled to Israel in a manual chair? Please let me know what your experience was like.
