~8:30 AM Your private licensed guide will pick you up at your hotel in Tel Aviv, you will then continue on to Jerusalem.
The Old City of Jerusalem
will introduce you to this place of intense sanctity to Jews, Christians and Muslims, where holy sites tumble over each other. Your expert guide will unpeel layers of history and provide an overview of what Jerusalem means to the three monotheistic religions. Amongst other sites, you will visit the sites most holy to these three faiths, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Kotel (Western Wall of the Second Temple) and Dome of the Rock.
Continue to Mahane Yehuda market, where you will find yourself surrounded by the colourful hustle and bustle of life which continues after tragedy. Your culinary guide, chef Tali Friedman is an alumna of the Hadassah College and of Paris' elite Lenôtre
school, who has accumulated over seventeen years' worth of experience in the profession, a considerable part of which she has spent under the tutelage of some of Israel's finest chefs. Her tour is engaging to all senses and you will explore the offerings of Mahane Yehuda's most attractive stalls – jumping between the turmeric flowers and the vanilla sticks and sampling oils, cereal mixtures and spices. After the tour the group will head to Tali’s studio to assist in creating a five course meal. This gourmet meal will be served on Tali’s rooftop overlooking the Machane Yehuda market.
