This was my first visit to Haifa. It was interesting to get a sense of the city and the market area. I loved the spice shop the best! I would suggest focusing more on the street art you pass by. I would've liked getting a better view of a couple places passed.

Mike and Timor were great guides. We toured around the markets and was expecting it to be more busy than it was; then they reminded us that we went early to miss the busy crowds and avoid just seeing heads bopping up and down. AND to show more of the produce before it was either all sold out or 'man-handled'. Quite considerate of them, IMO. In addition we had a nice tour of the surrounding are where they showed us some street art and talk about some of the buildings- showing us the first cinema in Haifa; which was quite neat. It was also nice to see them interacting with the shop owners and the customers, where in one incident- one of the customers did not want to be 'video-taped' and they explained what they were doing and tjhey just proceeded with the tour; no harm done (at least that was what I took from it) They showed an area where tourist/out-of-towners might not see often and it was well presented- the streets were clean and there was no street 'art' that was offensive. It was like a nice walk about during the day- where it felt like the weekend, but quieter. Thank you guys!
