Visit Old Jaffa and Tel Aviv on a full-day tour from Jerusalem. With a private guide, enjoy a flexible itinerary and choose what you want to see and do. Explore Old Jaffa's harbor, lanes and landmarks such as St Peter's Church, and tour Tel Aviv to see its seafront, Neve Tsedek district, UNESCO-listed White City and more.

Meet your private guide at your chosen start time at your Jerusalem hotel, and travel by private vehicle to Tel Aviv. Your itinerary is customizable, so chat with your guide as you travel and discuss the places you want to see.
Perhaps start in old Jaffa, just outside Tel Aviv. Dating back 4,000 years, the ancient port is one of the world's oldest and from where Jonah reputedly set sail in a New Testament tale. Explore the narrow lanes of artisan's workshops, and then, visit landmarks such as St Peter's Church and the Clock Tower.
After lunch (own expense), head into Tel Aviv. Admire the palm-lined beachfront, charming Neve Tsedek district and Independence Hall, where the state of Israel was declared in 1948. Or, view Bauhaus buildings in the UNESCO-listed White City area and browse the lively Carmel Market.
Later, visit Jaffa's Nalagaat Center, an innovative theater-restaurant complex run by blind and deaf artistes. Attend a show followed by dinner (own expense) in the pitch-black restaurant, or join a pottery or wine-tasting workshop (additional cost) to discover what these activities are like without sight or sound.
Your tour ends back in Jerusalem.
Please note: Advance notice is needed if you wish to attend a Nalagaat Center theater show, dinner or workshop. Make a note in the 'Special Requirements' field when you book.
