A visit to Tel Aviv isn’t complete without taking in its many incredible sights. Culture Trip’s curated tours and experiences take you to the very heart of the city.

Tel Aviv is one of the most vibrant cities in Israel, combining word-class nightlife, beautiful architecture and intriguing local art. On a visit to the city, make sure to step away from the usual tourist traps and experience something a little more unique.

Get acquainted with Tel Aviv’s local street photography scene and discover the graffiti on the city walls, or if you’re feeling active, hike to the gorgeous Golan Heights and pass through the ancient village of Katzrin, exploring its dormant volcano. The recommendations below have been curated by Culture Trip, to make your trip to Tel Aviv as amazing as possible.

1. Private Street Photography Workshop at Tel Aviv Streets With Anedrew Coburn


This is a workshop that is great for beginners or novices who are trying to improve their skills as photographers. Street photography is an art that is best when it is candid and raw, giving a realistic view of the people and locations that you are capturing. With the skills that you learn in my workshop, you can learn this art. You can even learn what apps you can get for your phone to get incredible pictures even without a DSLR camera.

2. Golan Heights Day Trip From Tel Aviv


Head to Israel’s Golan Heights, with historical heritage to match its mountainous beauty, on a day trip from Tel Aviv! On route to the region, enjoy several photo stops – including one at the sacred baptismal site of Yarendit – and then explore the ancient Jewish village of Katzrin, the capital of Golan Heights. See its sixth-century synagogue on a walking tour and then travel to the summit of Mount Bental to view the vistas from one of Israel’s most impressive dormant volcanoes.



This full-day tour will take you to Masada, the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve and the Dead Sea. Combining hiking, sunrise views, nature and a chance to float in the healing waters of the Dead Sea, this tour will take you to three destinations that are not easy to get to on your own. This tour is ideal for independent travellers.
