The Best Food Tours in Jerusalem and  Tel Aviv

Discover Israel

Mahane Yehuda - Jerusalem ❂ Levinsky Market - Tel Aviv

Visit Mahane Yehuda and Levinsky Market

My Epic Israel Food tours offer first-hand accounts, stories from shopkeepers, tricks from bakers and produce from farmers. It’s a behind-the-scenes, all-senses-go, culinary extravaganza that leaps from the heart of Israel’s food markets straight onto visitors’ taste buds.


Mahane Yehuda Jerusalem

We'll explore Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda's eateries, bakeries, food stalls, and spice shops. We talk about the story of Israel through its food and the impact immigrants have made on the market from its inception until today. It isn't a tasting tour, it's a food tour. And we eat. A lot. 100% Family friendly!

Levinsky Market 
Tel Aviv

Spice up your trip to Tel Aviv with a tour of Levinsky market. Levinsky market was founded by immigrants in the 1920’s from Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey, and later joined by immigrants from Iran. Levinsky Market is a cultural melting pot where you can find unique spices, dried fruit, cheeses, nuts, pickles, olives, coffee and the best halvah you’ll ever eat.

“Harry’s shuk tour was awesome! His knowledge of the history of the shuk was incredible, as was the food he had us try! I highly recommend touring with him!”

"Loved that Harry was able to engage both the adults and the kids. My little ones aren't the most adventurous eaters or triers of new foods. But Harry presented it in an engaging, storytelling manner that had them all in. They tried everything until their stomachs were full."



“The whole family - ages 9-49 - loved our time with Harry. While some of us have been to the Shuk many times before - we all learned new things. History, art, food. The Food! Come hungry. The most remarkable part was that all the kids ate new things!”

"We had a wonderful family tour with Harry of Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda shuk!! Harry was warm, interesting, informative and introduced us to a variety of interesting and delicious foods and vendors. He catered to all in our group....from age 13 to 83! We highly recommend him!"
