Tel Aviv: The City That Never Sleeps

Published on March 25, 2017 by IBMT

From its history to its harbors, Tel Aviv is a bustling, vibrant city with unexpected sights and sounds at every turn. With near-perfect weather- sunny skies most year, Tel Aviv is the perfect city for any type of traveler. The culinary and restaurant scene is internationally acclaimed, the beaches expansive, and the culture and history wide-ranging. Complete with Bauhaus architecture, a globally renowned clubbing scene, and with the ever-impressive Jaffa nearby, it is the perfect city for any interests, and guests of all ages.


Tel Aviv is full of historical sites integral to the history of both modern and ancient Israel. Independence Hall is a must-see, because it served as the location where David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of Israel, established the State of Israel amongst other community leaders. This event made international headlines, and opened a new chapter of history for the Middle East, and the Jewish people. Another popular destination is Beit Hatfutsot, or the Museum of the Jewish People. This unique institution tells the continuing and vibrant narrative of the Jewish people. Beit Hatfutsot conveys the fascinating story of the Jewish people and of Jewish culture and religion.

Visitors can take a walking tour through Jaffa, an ancient port city within walking distance of Tel Aviv’s beaches. Jaffa is truly a melting pot within Israel, with Jewish and Arab people living and working in harmony side by side. Jaffa is home to some of the most delightful restaurants in the Tel Aviv area, as well as beautiful sights and bakeries serving traditional Arab desserts. The Jaffa Flea Market is always filled with great items, and the smells, sights, and sounds of the market are a perfect representation of the people living in this ancient city. The winding alleyways and narrow streets are lined with art galleries and craft studios, in addition to family-owned restaurants for authentic middle-eastern food.

Visitors can also explore the downtown streets of Tel Aviv for shopping, nightlife, and critically acclaimed restaurants. Rothschild Boulevard is one of the most iconic streets, located in the heart of Tel Aviv. It is a business centre, with major banks and companies lining the street, a centre for culture, a short walk from the official theatre and concert hall of Tel Aviv. The street also serves as a culinary haven, with dozens of top restaurants spanning its length, and the centre of social life in the city, popular with dog walkers, bikers, and locals. Beautiful coffee shops, famed frozen yogurt destinations and more are located on Rothschild. Another must-see, Dizengoff Street has once again appeared as one of the most vibrant avenues, not far from the beaches. With designer clothing stores and historical museums, to flashy nightlife and a wide variety of restaurants, there is so much to see on this four kilometre stretch.

We just returned from Israel on an IBMT Bar Mitzvah Tour for our three grandsons.  We had enough family members to warrant our own bus.  After checking out many tour companies we went with IBMT and all of us were glad we did.  The hotels were fabulous and the rooms allotted even more so.  From the INBAL in Jerusalem, KFAR BLUM in the Galilee, the SHERATON in Tel Aviv, to the ROYAL BEACH in Eilat we couldn’t have asked for more.  Our meals were equally excellent.  Beginning with a welcome reception ...

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date.  The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable.  The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.  The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned.  It is ...

We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...

Dear Sheryl,

The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.

Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...

Craig Savage,


Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed.  We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that.  The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions.  Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Thanks again

Sara / Ornan,

I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested.  We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor.  I was part of an international group and made some new friends.
