I enjoyed tour with Sivan Dadush. From the get go He helped me with luggage storage issue. Btw please let people know no luggage to bring. He was very knowledgeable about Jaffa’s and Tel Aviv history. Enjoyed visiting all places. For sure Enjoyed tasting local food, visiting local famous restaurant and knowing more about graffiti artists. A suggestion to offer: to plan more breaks, please, because it is very tiring to walk for so long in heat.

The tour guide was wonderful. He gave us a lot of information about life in Tel Aviv, putting things into context. You get to see a lot of places, taste some great food and also understand more about the culture, things that you would not get from a guide book.

almost couldn't find my group as there were several others waiting at meeting point but once I did, the tour was brilliant. Very informative and enjoyable though comfortable shoes are essential. would choose this company again

We had a wonderful day exploring the city. It was great to see the sights, taste the foods and gain knowledge of the history.

Wonderful experience with a very special guide. Thank you, Adina. You are beautiful!!!
