Tel Aviv is a city of many shades and contrasts. But where did it all begin? Join me on this self guided audio tour as we walk in the footsteps of some of the founders of Tel Aviv, such as Ben Gurion and Meir Dizengoff. We’ll stroll along Rothschild Boulevard, tracing the Israeli Trail of Independence. This is the incredible story of the first Jewish city in the world, that was founded in 1909, and turned in recent years into the heart of the Startup Nation. In this tour we discover the secrets behind the preserved houses, including the Hall of Independence - the place where the state of Israel was founded, as well as the Hagana Museum and Ben Nahum Hotel.

Highlights include:

• How Tel Aviv was born out of the sea
• Who was the sheriff of Tel Aviv
• Why did the first school of Tel Aviv vanish
• What was life like in the early years of Tel Aviv
• Where the story of Israel and the story of Tel Aviv come together

Interesting insight into the first days of Tel Aviv

Didn't know what to expect as I had never done a self-guided tour before. This tour is very fun though! You follow the official "Trail of independence" that is also marked on the ground and get regular and timely information about nearby sights. This works quite well even without the app. The pacing of the tour is on the spot such that you don't get too little information for each sight but also aren't stuck at one place for ages. The audio could be a bit more engaging though.
5$ is a fair price, would recommend.
