Full description
Start your day of culinary exploration with a meet and greet with your friendly and knowledgeable local guide. As you sit back and relax with a delicious Turkish coffee, your guide will commence the day with an introduction into the culture of Israel. After a short 10-minute walk, you will be taken to Nachalat Binyamin, the first pedestrian walkway of Tel Aviv. You will be guided through this area's unique historical narrative and witness the artists selling their crafts in the market, singers who perform from balconies overlooking the boulevard and the famous textile shops that line Nachalat Binyamin. Your tour will continue to a special neighbourhood called the Yemenite Quarter. In order to understand the narrative of this unique place, including the changing demographics, you will make your way through the maze-like alleyways and feel the magic of this timeless neighbourhood – the food, the culture and the people. This place is unique not only for the feeling of a Kibbutz inside a city, but also because of the authentic culinary culture which is like no other. Following this, the group will arrive at the highlight of the tour – the famous Carmel Market. In the market, get the opportunity to experience the smell and the taste of amazing Israeli food. Your guide will show you the best places in the open market and enjoy some mid-day shots of Arak.

      The tour is really recommended! I bought the nearly 3-hour tour as a birthday present and we were not disappointed. Yoni told us a lot about the neighborhood, architecture, life and food. We also had a great and colorful mixed group with a lot of fun and a lot of impressions. Bury her!

      It was just why we wanted. Casual, not so serious but informative enough. Fret value for money. Good way to spend a few hours wandering around..
