About the tour

Since biblical times, Jaffa stood on a small hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea - the only bump on the between the Nile and Mount Carmel. Its port was a gateway to the Land of Israel and serves as one of the oldest still in use. In this tour we'll see some of the prominent sites ancient Jaffa has to offer.

Meet Tomer


Tomer has been guiding tours in the city since 2008. What started out of fascination about his family's history - the Chelouche family is one of the founding families of Tel Aviv - has seen him meet new people and show the city that has transformed over the course of several generations. On Tomer's tours, you'll get to discover fascinating stories about its history, culture, and much more, especially since Tomer's ancestors participated in the establishment of the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of ancient Jaffa, and the modern city of Tel Aviv.

I found the tour in Tel Aviv with Tomer less interesting than many of the other tours. However, it might be to other's liking. The story of the Zodiacs on the bridge saving people from drowning was interesting. Some of the lovely views were a long way off , but maybe they are being kept fresh for another tour. Tomer shared his family's story about the tower on the church where is grandfather lived when he first went to Tel Aviv. It gave a personable touch to the tour.
