Free Tour of Tel Aviv
The original FREE walking tour of Tel Aviv’s most-visited area, Old Jaffa, with a local guide
While Israel is filled with rich and ancient history, Tel Aviv tells the story of a modern, innovative city – technologically advanced and socially progressive. Discover Tel Aviv’s street art, its impressive collection of Bauhaus architecture, and beautiful neighborhoods of the German and American colonies on this 3-hour walking tour.
American and German Colonies
Nestled here in Tel Aviv’s Jaffa, you might be surprised to find a little piece of Maine, USA, but that’s exactly where these houses were pre-built by American colonists coming to Israel in the late 1800s. While most of these settlers quickly returned to the USA within a few years, their beautiful homes were almost immediately reoccupied by German settlers. Today, the 3-hour Modern Tel Aviv tour starts off by walking into this gorgeous neighborhood, which has been restored and renovated.
Street art and the Neve Tzedek neighborhood
You may have heard of the Neve Tzedek neighborhood, with its avant-garde stores, jazz bars and farmers’ markets. Your local Tel Aviv guide will take you to see some areas of the neighborhood that have not yet been gentrified, as well as introducing you to street art in the Florentin area, bustling markets and major landmarks like the Suzanne Dellal Dance Center.
Bauhaus and the White City
As we leave Neve Tzedek and stroll down the famous Rothschild Boulevard, you’ll discover Tel Aviv’s White City, one of the largest collections of Bauhaus architecture in the world. Today the White City is a World Cultural Heritage site, and people come from the world over to see this impressive collection, developed by German Jewish architects who fled to Tel Aviv following the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s.

A great way to know and understand a city
I took two tours with them: Free tour of Jaffa - An overview of Jaffa, especially the old city. Informative and interesting. City Tour of Tel Aviv (paid) - We covered the various sections of Tel Aviv. Helped understand how the city developed and changed. Nicola, our guide effectively created a visual about the history behind Tel Aviv of today.See more reviews

Great tours with Ori
I stayed in Tel Aviv for 2 days, and joined both the free old Jaffa tour and paid Tel Aviv city tour, both led by Ori. They are great and I think is the best way to explore the city (both ancient and new) if you have limited time here. My tour guide Ori is very knowledgeable and also features graffiti on the Tel Aviv city tour. He even prepared for us to make our own graffiti! I really enjoyed it.See more reviews
