Stories of The Market: Famous Machane Yehuda Shuk Tour
Very passionate about showing guests around Jerusalem, a city rich with culture, heritage, faith and conflict. I am fascinated with the history of the region, with its many cultures and religions, and feel pillaged to meet guests from all over the world. I love exchanging knowledge and experiences with my guests while walking and visiting the sites of the beautiful holy city. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the tour and Jerusalem.
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.
Food tasting available for additional cost.
