Here's a bit more on our tour*:
Our adventure begins with a meet & greet at your 5-star hotel. After laying out the full itinerary, we will head to a welcome dinner at a restaurant set in a very special location for our first shared taste of delicious local fare.
On day two, after a bountiful Israeli breakfast at the hotel, we set out to spend the morning on a curated tour of the Machne-Yehuda market, where we will taste a range of local delicacies and experience the buzzing market culture, before sitting down to lunch at a small gem specializing in local fare.
After a bit of free time in the afternoon -to stay at the market longer in case you didn’t get enough (it’s a great place to stock up on goodies to take home!), or wander out on your own- we regroup for a cooking workshop with a local cook. We will learn all the insider tricks to be able to reproduce some Israeli dishes back home, and then sit down together to enjoy the fruits of our labor the Mediterranean way: with a very relaxed sit-down at the table.
After fueling up at breakfast on day three, we will head out for a guided walking tour of the Old City, where there are many sites to see (such as the Wailing Wall, of course, as well as the tunnels and the old market), and new foods to try. One of our favorites is the hole-in-the-wall hummus place we will take you to, but there will be much more! After the richness of this morning and its food, you will enjoy a free evening to keep eating and touring, or rest in preparation for another exciting day.
Day four takes us outside of the city for yet another very special place: a visit to a tahini producer, perhaps the best in Israel, one of the very few that still uses traditional artisanal methods. We will get a full tour and tasting, as well as the opportunity to buy some sesame gold to take home.
Before we head out for dinner on day 4, dress up fancy if you like; our farewell meal will be special one, indeed.
After breakfast on day 5 we will say goodbye, hearts full and bellies content. We hope you enjoyed Jerusalem!
