The Best of Tel Aviv Free Tour is an excellent tour experience. Tel Aviv is somewhat elusive, difficult to grasp from the off; a city that reveals a little more of its character with each corner turned, each story heard, and each person met. It is quite the seductive city too - it lures you around each corner, piques your interest with fascinating tales, and shares its warmth through the locals buzzing about. It is certainly a city best explored on foot with an excellent local guide - and that's what we have here. The top-quality guides of Free Tel Aviv Tours are knowledgeable and friendly. We liked how they engage with the group, encourage questions & feedback, and keep the pace at the perfect tempo. The 'Best of ' title should not suggest a 'highlights' tour. This tour is very comprehensive - must-see attractions, lesser known sights & hidden places of interest within a walk-friendly radius and broader topics & themes. The guides deliver all the info in easily digestible chunks and give you a really valuable insight to Tel Aviv, past, present, and future.
