Walking Tours

Please note that that the tour presented here is a modular tour and can be divided into three different tours. The tours do not include transportation. 

We'll start the day exploring Old Jaffa. Our first stop will be Old Jaffa Visitor's Center. From there we'll proceed to visit St. Peter's Church and the House of Simon the Tanner. Walking along Jaffa's narrow allies we'll see the Floating Orange-Tree, and some galleries including Ilana Goor Museum. We'll proceed through the Crest Garden (Gan HaPisga), for a beautiful panoramic view of Tel-Aviv. Passing through the "Wishing Bridge", we'll head down to Jaffa's Port and hear the story of Andromeda and Perseus in Jaffa, and about Jonah, the Prophet that fled the city, avoiding a confrontation with the people of Nineveh. We'll continue to the Clock Tower Square, and over to the Flea Market. You'll have some free time to browse the market, and maybe grab something to eat. You may want to try the local "Shakshuka" an Israeli fry-up of tomatoes and eggs, or one of the excellent local "Humus" restaurants.

We'll proceed to old train station Hatachana that operated between 1892 and 1948. The place is now a leisure and shopping complex.

And explore Neve-Tzedek the first neighborhood outside of Jaffa (1887), admiring its eclectic architecture, pleasant cafés and restaurants.

Next, we'll visit the first neighborhood of Tel-Aviv; we'll see the first cinema, the first elevator and the first Kiosk, and the first skyscraper. If open we'll see Guttmann's mosaics, telling the story of Jaffa and Tel-Aviv.

Along Rothschild Boulevard, we'll visit the Independence Hall where the state of Israel was declared by its first prime minister – David Ben-Gurion. Then, to get to meet the locals we'll proceed to the "Magen-David" Square, where you can spend some time walking along Nachalat Binyamin crafts market (on Tuesdays and Fridays), the Carmel Market and Shenkin St.

All tours can be modified, according to your fields of interest, your walking ability, and the time you wish to spend in each site.
