Top attractions in Tel Aviv
The second largest city in Israel, and now a real tourist hotspot, Tel Aviv is a great place to visit. Here are a few highlights to think about before you go.
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art](/tel-aviv-museum-of-art-l4257/) is well worth a visit, and tours are advised, as there is so much classical and contempary art to see, with a special emphasis on Israeli art.
Tel Aviv Port is Tel Aviv's commercial and entertainment district. A definite tourist hotspot and must see on any trip.
Yarkon Park is a little slice of paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. Why not catch a concert at one of the two outdoor concert venues?
Head to the Promenade for some sun and sand and to catch some tourist hightlights.
A tour of the Great Synagogue will make your trip to Tel Aviv really special. A magnificant building with a rich history.
Walk among the locals, hunt and haggle for a bargain and bring back a real piece of the city.
For spectacular views over the city, and to get some holiday snaps that match the postcards.

What people are saying about Tel Aviv
We loved the tour & ride with Ali. We highly recommend to do this safari tour. We were 6 people in one jeep, Ali is a very good driver. We had cold water for free and we get fresh watermelon for break. Ali was a great guide funny and nice he has a lot of expierience as he lives in the desert. The ride was 4 hours where he explained us the nature, animals and the plants. He gives us an idea how Nomad people live and lived in the desert and how they made it to survive. Which plant can be eaten, which one used as soap. How to find water, where to sleep. How to read tracks in the sand. We saw dromedas, ibex, birds and a yellow scorpion. The nature and beeing in the middle of the desert surrounded with nothing then sand and the view at the Dead Sea in over 300m was amazing Contra: The dead sea afterwards. Huge bus group,the "Kalia Beach" super crowded touristic spot. Not nice. Would recommened to split this tour to just do the safari OR even better add a desert sleepover under the stars
Bus arrived at 7:30AM, took us to a collecting area, we had an excellent guide Amir, very knowledgeable, open minded & ready to answer all types of questions. We stopped on the way to get Coffee, arrived in Jerusalem around 9:00AM .. We had a view of the city from over the mountain. Then went to the Lamentation wall, the Via Dolorosa, the church of the Holy Sepulcher, it was impossible to enter Jesus's tomb because of the long queue. Left to the bus at 12:15PM to go to Bethlehem. There we were guided to a restaurant to have lunch (Costs around 16$) I had my lunch with me, I just took a drink. We went a walking distance to the Church of Nativity, visited inside with another guide Martin. Before leaving Bethlehem we stopped by a gift shop. Then trip back to Tel Aviv, we arrived at around 5:15PM My next visit will be on my own, there is still a thousand of other sites in Jerusalem that you can never see in a guided tour. A new train takes you directly from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
All in all a great tour with a reliable tour guide and a good price-performance ratio. Highlights were of course the sunrise at Masada and Ein Gedi with it's animals and the waterfal. Things to mind: - The climb at Masada is really exhausting. The cable car starts at 8am,, so you have to walk. If your old or not that sporty, it is possible, that you are not in time in Masada for the sunrise. - We don't know why everybody's talking about the dead sea and how wonderful it is. You feel like a dead fish in (too) salty, oily, nearly boiling water. If you make the mistake to put finger in your eyes, you feeling the pains of your life and after 30 minutes lying at the "beach" (more like mud desert) you sweating like hell. You can say, that you were at the lowest point at the earth, maybe that's the experience. But, like I said: The tour was all in all a great adventure!
Instead of spending so much time at River Jordan for those who did not wish to be baptised, I would have liked to see one or two churches in Tiberias instead of simply driving by. Amir Call Or, the guide of Bein Harim tours was very informative although I felt that he was one of the very few Israelis I met during my 12 day trip here who did not appreciate India.
We chose to have this tour on the day we arrived to TelAviv. It was an excellent choice since the guided tour took as to many areas of the city that we would not have discovered by ourselves. We learned a lot about the history and had good amount of exercise by walking 3hours.
