Tour description

Jerusalem's famous Machane Yehuda Shuk open market is bustling with activity day and night.
 
During the day this is a popular site for shopping for fresh produce, vegetables, fish, meat
, and dairy products as well as multiple options for Israeli street food, Falafel, shwarma, and others.
In the evening the Shuk takes on an additional "personality" and becomes one of Jerusalem's most exciting nightlife locations with endless choices of restaurants and bars filling the place of the fruit stands that have closed down for the night. You have to see it to understand.

After hours of work by street artists who have painted the doors of the shops with hundreds of graffiti murals including portraits of many Israeli and international historical figures.

On this tour, we will hear the stories and learn the unique history of the Shuk and enjoy the special culture of this place.

Excellent tour and highlight of my week! Rabbi David is incredibly knowledgable and gave me a fantastic evening in the famous Machane Yehuda Shuk. Got to experience its very exuberant character after dusk. Learnt about history of the neighbourhood, the iconic graffiti art, culture and much more. 10/10 would highly recommend!
