Owner description: Experience the best of Israel's food culture! One of the most exhilarating experiences available in Israel is a stroll around a Middle Eastern market, or shuk. The flavors, smells, sights and sounds of a shuk are like nothing else you have ever experienced, providing a glimpse into local life, color, tastes and commerce. Shuk Bite's self-guided food tours are inexpensive, while offering you maximum flexibility. Stroll at your own pace, come to the market with the same ticket more than once, and wander in any sequence you want. Having picked the brains of local experts, residents, vendors and guides, we've done the research for you. We've identified the cream of the crop at each shuk. Our partner vendors are happy to chat with customers, are generous with tastings of the best quality, and have great stories to tell. Explore and get a taste of Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda and Old City, Tel Aviv's Levinsky Market, Jaffa Flea Market and Old Jaffa! We look forward to eating with you!

“Amazing way to experience Jerusalem's best open market for locals and tourists alike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Great experience! Took my in laws for a DIY tour of the market place. I really wanted them to experience the delicious sounds, friendly people and exciting places deep in the Shuk. The Shuk Bites tasting tour was perfect! Gave us a route to follow, delicious options to taste, and plenty of shop keepers to talk with. Spent hours in the end having a blast - and getting really full from the samples included in the cost! Highly recommended for visitors and locals alike.

“Excellent selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

The classic tour gives a little bit of everything, and perfect for people who don't have the initiative or motivation for the independent tour. The olive oil was amazing, and the shuk atmosphere is so lively and colorful. I really enjoyed the tour, and recommend it to anyone who is really new to the shuk. Personally I think it's best for adults, since the shuk can be a little hectic. Thanks for the great experience.

“Adventure for Your Mouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Shuk Bites is an amazing idea that lets you try and sample the best of what the market (shuk) has to offer. We often cant decide which cart to stop and to buy the local products, this innovative approach to market stall browsing let us try all different types of foods and really get into the gastronomic adventure side of the market without breaking the bank.

“Perfect For The Intrepid-but-not-stupid Traveler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

imagine walking into a sensory overload of food, vegetables and screaming. That is exactly what walking into Mahane Yehudah is like...and despite loving local flavors and being as authentic as possible, no one wants to walk into that kind of chaos with out a map. . Shuk Bites is awesome for anyone wanting to explore the wild and wooly world of Jerusalem's Market..

“Best way to explore the Jerusalem Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

My wife and I are foodies and were extremely pleased with the convenience and high quality we got. The market can be a bit overwhelming so having a map and feeling like an "insider" was really cool. I'd highly recommend the Shuk Bites ticket as the best way to explore the market and taste a large variety of offerings. You'll learn a lot and know exactly where to come back to next time. Can't go wrong.
