On this fully customisable private tour, we will wander through the windy streets of Old Jaffa and trace the development of this ancient port city with a collection of remarkable stories and legends going back over 3000 years. The Old City is beautifully lit up by night which means that an evening tour gives us a special atmospheric backdrop to Jaffa's Tales.We'll discover why rulers such as Egyptian pharaohs to Alexander the Great to Napoleon wanted to conquer and control Jaffa and what stories they left behind. We'll understand the significance of this ancient port in the Bible. We'll see ancient ruins and beautiful modern pieces of art. And if you're hungry, we can certainly arrange a stop for some great local food.The pace is relaxed and it's a great way to unwind in the evening whether you've been busy exploring Tel Aviv or had a full day of meetings.
