    It is quick and easy, not a lot to learn unless you ask the questions… However it is something to still do; especially if you’re not able to stay in a building that is tall enough for you to see across the city from the north to the south and along the water! The park that it is in is a beautiful park with paddle boats in the center, bike and running path all around...really enjoyed that walk to and through it!

    Excellent instructions for pick up and Michael our guide was a great driver and very informative during the majority of the day. There was enough time at each of the attractions to spend time and learn about what was going on. I am unable to rate this any higher as the return back to Tel Aviv let it down, no information, took 4hours and at times we were stationary without information about when we were likely to get back to our hotel. This was due to overloading the coach on the return leg with other passengers from another trip. Sadly this left a sour taste in people’s mouths and some couples even got off the coach and starting walking to their hotel. After checking this was not an option for us with a 40 minute walk ahead if we had so we waited and took the risk which luckily only ended up been half this time.

What people are saying about Tel Aviv District

Well-guided trip by 2 older men in a modern minibus. During the trip a lot was told about our whereabouts and about the country. The stay at the individual stations was relatively short, but it was perfectly sufficient for us. The food (fish fillet) in the St. Peters restaurant was really great. Salad buffet, one of three main dishes and coffee for only 80 shekels. At the end of the trip, the two tour guides even tried to get us a free taxi so that we could safely get back to our accommodation from the central bus stop. Highly recommended!

I was picked up sharp on time, all was organised beautifully and out driver / tour guide was very kind and informative.

It was a great experience. I recomend this tour! Enough time at Dead sea; 2 hours... Guide was excelent! All the best!

It was a pleasure to travel with Jenny to those 3 beautiful locations in Israel! Thanks a lot!

Was a very nice trip, well organized and well explained. A 10 for the guide
