Full description

Learn about Tel Aviv's history, culture, and art on a walking tour with a local guide. Stroll through Old Jaffa's flea market, spot stunning street art in the Florentin district, and try the local foods at the Carmel Market.

Walk through Old Jaffa, with its flea market, art galleries, and iconic alleys. Continue to the famous neighborhood of Neve Tzedek, admiring the diverse buildings and architecture in Tel Aviv. Learn about both the past and future of the Tel Aviv cityscape while exploring the areas. Next, you will explore the Carmel Market, a cornucopia of flavors, smells, sounds and sights brimming with fresh, local ingredients. Marvel at the colors of fresh fruit and vegetables piled high, vibrant spices, artisan baked goods, local meats and cheeses, olives and sweets. The market is the heart of the city and is filled with energy. Enjoy several food samplings along the way including Dolmas - a Druzian style rice wrapped in vine leaves, Ghat and etrog juice - a local ingredient with a history, Garinim - a mix of roasted seeds, a popular Israeli snack, Zaatar with Lahuh - a middle eastern herb blend with a soft Yemei fermented bread, Halva - a sweet confectionery made from sesame seeds, and a seasonal market item. (Items are subject to change based on availability/seasonality). Then you will continue on to the southern Tel Aviv district of Florentin, a graffiti and street art haven filled with many works of art both large and small. The artwork tells a story, often with historical and cultural relevance. Gain a deeper insight and awareness to the subculture in Tel Aviv and the importance of the street art scene. When possible, we have collaborated directly with the local street artists to promote accurate information and support of their work. After the tour, we will provide information of artists whose work has been seen on the tour providing social media information and where possible, opportunities to purchase work directly from the artists.

    Great value, great tour

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this 7 hour, three part walking tour of Tel Aviv. First part covers some basic architecture and history of Tel Aviv; mid-part was my favorite walking through the Carmel Market sampling a few foods; and finally learning about the local street art in South area. Our guide Amit, was deeply knowledgeable, articulate, and fun. We walked many miles so wear comfortable shoes. Some people came for single parts of the tour but we gladly did it all.
