Service Description

After the pick-up at your Tel Aviv hotel, we will make a short drive across Tel Aviv to finally park the car under the Theater Square of Tel Aviv. From this point and till the end of the tour, we shall walk about 3 miles. The Theater Square is one of the most beautiful focal points in the City. It hosts both the National Theater Habima and the Tel Aviv Concert Hall. With its suspended garden and reflecting pool, the square is one of the most popular meeting places for the locals and the city guests alike. From the Theater Square, we will proceed to the Rothschild Boulevard – once the first and now the central street in Tel Aviv. This boulevard is one of the major Tel Aviv attractions, and there are always happy crowds there. Along the boulevard stand beautiful bright colored buildings, and each of them deserves a separate story. The first houses here were constructed here at the time when Tel Aviv was built, in 1909. And the construction continues till our days. As a result, the Boulevard' area presents a fascinating mixture of the architectural styles – from the British Colonial, through the famous Bauhaus and till the present-day glass sky-scrappers. Due to this unique mixture of styles, Tel Aviv was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Soon we will turn away from the Boulevard and immerse into the small streets of the White City – possibly the most picturesque area in Tel Aviv. This is a place to see the city life and to further enjoy its unique architecture. We will proceed to see the beautiful palace which used to be the home of the Israeli National Poet Nachman Bialik. At the nearby square stands an impressive building of the first Tel Aviv City Hall. And next to both there is a small but remarkably interesting Bauhaus Museum, which we can visit if our tour is conducted on a weekday. We will continue our easy walk to see the most beautiful Pagoda House and finally turn to Allenby Street, called after the British Field Marshal Allenby who liberated Tel Aviv during WWI. We will walk along this interesting street, famous for its small shops where one can find anything in the world until we reach the Main Tel Aviv Synagogue. From here we will arrive to the Rothchild Boulevard again and will see the Foundation Monument, where Tel Aviv was established in 1909. Nearby stands the Independence Hall, where Israel Independence was declared on May 14, 1948.
