Variety of tours

jaffa tour

Jaffa

One of the oldest settlements along the Eastern Mediterranean. Pharaoh Thutmose conquered the town which is mentioned in the Bible. Later, the Crusaders used its port. Starting 1291 Jaffa was ruled for centuries by Mamlukes, until 1917, when the British general Edmund Allenby led the Egyptian Expeditionary Force to conquer the city. In 1950, Jaffa was incorporated into the Tel Aviv municipality.

neveh tzedek tour

Neveh Tzedek

This is the first Jewish neighborhood built outside of Jaffa. The tour brings us back to the first days of Tel Aviv. By the end of the 1980s, efforts began to renovate and preserve Neve Tzedek’s century-old structures. New establishments were housed in old buildings, most notably the Suzanne Dellal Dance and Theater Center and the Nachum Gutman Museum, located in the artist’s home. This gentrification led to Neveh Tzedek’s rebirth as a fashionable and popular upmarket residence for Tel Avivians. Its main streets became lined once again with artists’ studios, including the ceramics studio of Samy D., alongside trendy cafés and bars, and more recently boutique hotels and shops selling hand-made goods to wealthy Israelis and tourists.

heart of the city (Tel Aviv) tour

Lev HaYir (Heart Of The City)

The neighborhood "Lev Ha Yir" was established during the 1920s and 1930s and demonstrates the Zionist ideals of these days. Landlords realized their dreams in so called “dream buildings” pagodas, Moslem architecture as well as European classicism characterize the “heart of the city”.

Jerusalem Old City tour

Jerusalem: The Old City

The holy city to three religions has been a place of attraction for thousands of years. It has been destroyed and reconstructed by different empires, with different ideas about what a city should be. As a result, the city of Jerusalem is a confusing mosaic of religious shrines, historic sites and cultural monuments. Our unique tour to the Old City of Jerusalem takes us to the famous and well known sites of Jerusalem, as well as to hidden gems.

acco (acre) tour

Acco

Akko, Acre (World Heritage Site). Akko has been known since biblical times. In 1104 it fell into Crusaders hands and became the economic center of the Crusader Kingdom in the Holy Land for the next 200 years. The impressive fortresses the Crusaders erected are evidence of a notable era—today the Crusader city lies outside the present old town, which was built in the 18th century.

massada tour

Massada

Massada (World Heritage Site). The uniqueness of Massada is due to discoveries from the time of King Herod. He ruled the land 2000 years ago. Herod had many enemies; he decided to build a fortress for himself and his family on Massada—an isolated location in the Judean Desert. For this purpose he built casemate walls around the entire fortress, two castles, food warehouses, a water collection pool, baths etc. On Massada the drama during the Great Jewish Revolt against the Romans took place.
