Overview

Israel Food Tours was founded because of our passion for Israeli food and our desire to share with you Israel's exceptional culinary diversity and complexity. Our tours aim to create a connection with location and its people through the shared experience of local cuisine. We visit every geographic region from the Negev desert to the Galilean mountains in Northern Israel, as we introduce you to a wide variety of ethnic cuisines that comprise the contemporary culture of Israeli food. At the moment we are not offering tours, as we engage in other culinary projects, but check back in with us in the future to see if this changes.

Not only did we eat the best hummus and Indian food Israel has to offer, but we toured a city only minutes from our doorstep. Our guide, Liz, was like a magician who continuously revealed surprises and secrets within this often overlooked city. She explained...More
