Tel-Aviv - Jaffa
Tel-Aviv is a fun city with lot of bars, restaurants and night life. It is also a frequent one or two-day stop for many visitors. It is also known as the First "Hebrew" city in the Holy Land of modern times. I can take you on half-day tours to discover Tel-Aviv and Jaffa.
We will start our tour from the clock tower then follow the sea walls until the harbor. Then we go up the streets of the Old Jaffa and visit St Peter Church, before climbing up to the summit to enjoy the panorama. Then down to the Ottoman city with a lunch break in an oriental restaurant. If you have a full day available, we can visit art galleries and museums in the Old Jaffa, then walk to the American/German colony for an afternoon tea before heading back to your hotel.
We will start our tour in Neve Tzedek, the first Jewish neighborhood. Then we head to the beginning of Rothschild Blvd where Tel-Aviv started in 1909 as a city distinct from Jaffa. We can discover its history at the Shalom Tower. We will continue along the boulevard to the White City, which won UNESCO recognition. If time allows, we can visit some historical buildings on the way, walking up Bialik Street and visiting Trumpeldor cemetery.
Food & Markets
Tel Aviv has fantastic colorful markets, which I can show you for half-day tours. One tour is with the Shuk ha-Carmel and Nahalat Benyamin street stalls with home-made artifacts. Another one is in Sarona, the Templer village recently refurbished with shops, restaurants and a market of delicatessen. Another one, more for the afternoon, is in the Tel-Aviv harbor (at the north of the modern city) for its shops, restaurants and fabulous sunset view.
