Enjoy the breathtaking views and peaceful atmosphere of Armon Hanatziv's landscape with Ancient Jerusalem unfolding to the north and the City of David standing at its center.

MIshkenot Shaananim - Mishkenot Shaananim and Yamin Moshe are very picturesque neighborhoods located southwest of the Old City, facing Mount Zion, close to the Begin Center and the King David Hotel. These neighborhoods were established as the first settlements outside the Jewish quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. Our Segway Tour begins at the magnificent observation point located near the windmill of the Yamin Moshe quarter. From there we will move toward the Begin Center and will enter the Mishkenot Shaananim quarter. There we will visit the famous Sultan’s Pool and will stop in the Hutzot Hayotzer (the artist’s colony) to admire the work of the street artists. From there we will enter the King David Street and will ride along the prestigious Mamilla neighborhood and pass by the famous shopping alley. From there we will return to the initial point of our Segway Tour passing by the King David Hotel.

Ajami Neighborhood - Three Religions, One God - Explore the historic Ajami neighborhood, known for its exquisite villas and unique
architectural style. Ajami is a charming neighborhood that has it all: beautiful
buildings and friendship between its diverse residents. This diversity began towards
the end of the 19th century when the neighborhood became a fashionable location
inhabited by Muslims, Jews and adherents of various Christian denominations. This
tour features the lively streets of Ajami where you can see homes with magnificent
painted ceilings; different places of worship; and hear amusing stories and legends
of the neighborhood.

The Magic of Jaffa - Join us on an amazing tour through old Jaffa, one of the world's oldest port cities
(4,000 years old!). Experience its picturesque streets and abundant history, which
dates back to biblical times. Experience the beautiful historic city of Jaffa including:
the flea market, archaeological sites, old port, and the Crest Garden, with its
astounding view of Tel Aviv and the Mediterranean.

Graffiti Tour - In the maze of workshops and garages in the Florentin neighborhood, far away from
the world of galleries and museums, there are walls full of artistic creations that
almost no one talks about: Tel Aviv's street art. Learn about the artists behind these
works, and the messages behind them. Discover the history of graffiti and its
purpose.

Tel Aviv Through Pink Shades - Come learn the history of Israel's proudest city! Hear about the life of the gay
community in the 1930's and the place where the gay party scene began. Hear about
the first gay pride parade and the Israeli, first, transgender winner of the annual,
internationally televised Eurovision song contest. Put on your pink shades and come
discover the Nonstop City!
