About the tour

Layers of local history await you in the trendy Gan HaHashmal zone of Tel Aviv. This luxurious neighborhood, constructed by the financial elite of 1920’s Tel Aviv and which has become a dubious area, is currently making a comeback with new, positive vibes. In this tour, we uncover the stories behind the stylish buildings, including a century old love story and the turbulent path to the electrification of the Land of Israel. Arguably, one of the most successful urban restoration projects in Israel, Gan HaHashmal is now as trendy and hip a neighborhood as can be.

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.

Fascinating to see an area of Tel Aviv ... a city I had no knowledge of. Fascinating to see the different types of architecture and Tomer was excellent at answering questions. Thanks Tomer and see you again on another tour
