Israel Food Tours was founded because of our passion for Israeli food and our desire to share with you Israel's exceptional culinary diversity and complexity. Our tours aim to create a connection with location and its people through the shared experience of local cuisine. We visit every geographic region from the Negev desert to the Galilean mountains in Northern Israel, as we introduce you to a wide variety of ethnic cuisines that comprise the contemporary culture of Israeli food. At the moment we are not offering tours, as we engage in other culinary projects, but check back in with us in the future to see if this changes.

Today we had the pleasure of tasting, seeing, learning about the wonderful produce, nuts, spices, cheeses, baking....you name it... available in Jerusalem. A friend and I met Ben Brewer, of Israel Food Tours, at a coffee shop near the market in the Mehane Yehuda area and had a fabulous time walking through the market sampling all kinds of foods and...

Hi Diane, I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and I had a great time exploring and eating our way through the Shuk along with Suzanne. I hope you've put the Sumac to good use and were inspired by the spices and foods you ate while in Israel. Best, Ben More

I thoroughly enjoyed the food tour with Ben. He was very knowledgeable about food and history. We got to sample very good, and unique foods on this tour - like hummus with fava beans, date cookies, yemenite flat bread, Arab coffee, lot of exotic spice blends etc. Ben's style is very casual and approachable, which I enjoyed a lot.

Wow! I'm an American who has been to Israel more times than I can count and so it's hard to find something "new and different" to do when I visit. Israel Food Tours created a special tour for me and some friends that blew us away. We first went to a private chef's quickfire tasting in a beautifully renovated industrial... More

Not only did we eat the best hummus and Indian food Israel has to offer, but we toured a city only minutes from our doorstep. Our guide, Liz, was like a magician who continuously revealed surprises and secrets within this often overlooked city. She explained to us the history of foods and flavours and she made sure that we understood... More

A visit to Israel would be incomplete without sampling the food and what better way than with a tour through its food markets. Inbal, CEO of Israel Food Tours and our guide, was fabulous. She is passionate and very knowledgeable about food and its part in life in Israel and Jewish culture. We took the tour through the Jerusalem food... More

I had the pleasure of doing an architectural tour of early Tel Aviv with Israel Food Tours. I already knew something about Tel Aviv's early years, and was delighted that the tour guide started by asking us what we already knew. That way, he was able to focus on what would be new to us. As we walked around the... More

My mom and I went to Tel Aviv together and since she'd never visited Israel, a food tour seemed like a great way to introduce her to the culinary delights of the region. To say the least, she was not disappointed. All of the stops provided ample and delicious food to sample and discuss. Liz was great in explaining where... More

What en experience! I could imagine that this tour would be interesting, funny and tasty.... But it was even better: Be like on a tour with a friend who is showing where he lives and what he eats!

When I had guests arrive from abroad we decided to take a tour with Savor Israel. Although I had been to Tel Aviv I experienced a new and exciting side to the city I hadn't known about before.
