Stroll the famous Rothschild Boulevard from Habima to Ahuzat Bayit, the neighborhood that was renamed Tel Aviv in 1910. While walking you learn about the problems of the founding families, their success in building a modern Hebrew city and enjoy the beautifully restored Bauhaus architecture.

Next we will visit gentrified Neve Tzedek. From a slum that was about to be erased, it became home to over a dozen billionaires. This charming, chic, neighborhood from the 19th century is now filled with boutiques, cafe’s, restaurants and elegant fashion and jewelry stores.

For the tasting part we continue to another old neighborhood, built in 1904 for poor immigrants from Yemen, called Kerem HaTeimanim. Their market grew into the largest one of Tel Aviv. This Carmel Market also survived the city's obliteration plans and is thriving now. In addition to the fruits and vegetables stalls and little Yemenite restaurants it now has many bars, eateries and chef-owned food spots.

What's Included

After about 1,5 hour, we wil have a coffee stop.

In the Carmel Market we will have 5 tastings on different locations.

More Than Just a Tour: A Rich Tapestry of...
Andrea A, 02-01-2023
Today was amazing! I thought we were going on a culinary tour, but it was so much more! It was as if we were being toured around by our favorite cousin (Menno) who is plugged into the local community. He shared his personal experiences as we toured neighborhoods ranging from the Bauhaus and international style neighborhood along Rothchilds to Nevi Tzedek. It was a rich tapestry of architecture, culture, food, socio-political, music, finance, art, laughter and 11,000 steps!
He knew the best places to eat in the Carmel Market and a cool place to try beer. He makes you laugh, is intelligent, spontaneous with a kind and generous heart. Menno was intentional yet discreet in identifying clean bathrooms for us to use which is important on a long walking tour. When it was time to say goodbye, I felt a little sad as it was such a fun time that I did not want it to end. It was an extraordinary day that we will not forget!
Excellent and highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed this very informative tour of Tel Aviv. We felt in just a few hours we learned a lot of history and was very interesting! Despite the heat, our guide took care to find shaded areas, bathrooms, and benches to rest a bit. The food tastings were diverse and incredible! We ended up full for the entire evening!! Absolutely wonderful experience!
Outstaning Urban Walking Tour!

Menno, our guide, was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and professional. The tour content Urban Walking Tour and Food Tour was excellent. We saw areas of the city and its different architecture where locals live and work. Very great tour and the added portion of Food at the Carmel Market was also a great experience! We loved it. Highly Recommend Amazing Jerusalem and also this tour!!
Great kickstart for a stay in Tel Aviv

We had a great experience with this tour. Menno clearly is an expert when it comes to Tel Aviv and Israel their history and his enthusiasm is contagious!

Being in Israel for the first time, I learned a lot about the history of the country, the founding of Tel Aviv (and the forgotten role of my fellow countrymen!), as well as more recent developments regarding politics, architecture and urban planning. Menno took all the time to answer any of our questions extensively.

The route passes through very nice neighborhoods, with the highlights being Neve tzedek and the ending with a well-deserved drink and delicious local food tasting at Carmel market. Bear in mind that the tour involves quite some walking so I'd recommend wearing comfortable shoes and some water/snacks for the first part. Just make sure to reserve enough space for all the food on the market :)
2 experiences in 1, perfect start of the day!

We had an amazing day on this tour! Menno is a walking encyclopedia who provided a great combination of history, architecture and urban development insights, while at the same time pointing out all the bars and restaurants that we should visit (bellboy cocktailbar here we come!).

The Carmel market was an experience by itself and we would have never found the hidden gems we were taken to. Felt like a local with all the different food and beer tryouts!

The tour was for us (brothers 20-something + 30-something) perfectly balanced in terms of comfortably walking with a coffee to go, sightseeing/listening and enjoying the market.
