The Old City of Jaffa, belonging to the bustling Tel Aviv, preserves a fascinating history. Discover it during this walking tour of the Old Town. Plus, it’s free!

Itinerary

Greet your English-speaking guide by the Clock Tower in Old Jaffa. From this Ottoman Empire vestige, embark on a tour by foot to the picturesque Port of Jaffa, on the Mediterranean Sea.  

Overlooking the harbor is the beautiful al-Bahr Mosque, meaning The Sea Mosque. Its proximity to the water made it extremely popular among sailors and fishermen.

Continue your free walking tour of Jaffa by discovering St Peter’s Church. Founded in 1654, it is the largest building in Old Jaffa. Then, admire the Jaffa Lighthouse, which offers breathtaking views of the expanse.

As you walk along the quaint streets of the “Bride of Palestine” and admire its most important landmarks, including the New Seray, the House of Simon the Tanner and the Arab-Hebrew Theatre, your licensed guide will reveal incredible stories about one of the oldest inhabited places in the world.

After a 2-hour tour, you will head back to the starting point, not before finding out about the Jaffa Riots and the city’s association with the biblical stories of Jonah and the Whale, among many others.

You name the price

At the end of the free tour we invite you to pay your guide based on your level of satisfaction, since they are exclusively paid with the visitors’ gratuities.
