5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The guide was interesting, knowledgable, and engaging. We learned history through architecture as we walked the neighborhoods.

“Walk and Talk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Took the Bauhaus Center walk of the modernist and White City architectural movement and buldings. The architecture in the heart of Tel Aviv is beautiful, unique and the tour is worth the time

“beautiful way to experience the real city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

reminded me of San Francisco in the human-scaled buildings, grid-like well planned streets, tree shaded and green but in an urban area . a must if you appreciate architecture, a joy if you want to experience the "real city"

“Bauhaus in Israel.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The combination of proliferous Bauhaus buildings and Jaffa stone makes for a gorgeous white tableau. Thousands of Bauhaus buildings by Jewish German architects are seen throughout the city, so don't miss walking on Rothcild Boulevard. Sad note: many buildings have been defaced by graffiti.

“Highly overrated.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This is by far one of the most overrated "attractions" in Tel Aviv.
The old Bauhaus architecture style got this area of the city nicknamed "The white city".
Well, it's all nice and pretty, as long as you love strolling in residential streets and gaze at utterly ugly Bauhaus buildings.
Bet hey, UNESCO declared it to be a "World Heritage Site", so who am I to judge?
