    This is a fun way up the mountain, sure it’s a tad pricey for what it is but your alternative is a taxi that charges three times as much or to walk (good luck with that in the heat). The views are nice and if you video the experience you can make it more fun with your own commentary or help the other person in the pod who might be scared of heights.

    This was my first trip to Israel. Elchi was our tour guide for 10 days and he was exceptional! It seemed like every thing we encountered he had a story to tell about it. His experience and expertise truly made this trip one to remember. Will definitely return with him as my guide. A little helpful advice bring your walking shoes.

    A fun and handy way to get up and down the hill. Both ends of the line are worth exploring. It seemed very quiet when I took it.

    The ride was very good. Our flight was late and our luggage lost. The driver patiently waited for us to report the missing luggage, and drove us safely to our home

    הנסיעה היתה מעולה.
    הטיסה שלנו איחרה והמזוודות שלנו לא הגיעו. הנהג חיכה בסבלנות עד שנדווח על כל הפריטים החדרים ולקח אותנו בבטחה הביתה.

    PROS
    * Easiest way to transit within Tel Aviv and suburbs
    * Clean fast smooth quiet and efficient with no traffic congestion

    CONS
    * It doesn't go near many tourist attractions
    * It is only near the beach at Jaffa
    * You need a RavKav card or the Moovit application in order to travel
    * The stations are huge but without concession stands

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    ... because i was returning from a conference at the hotel. It is very easy to ride and it was a fun experience again. As I've written previously, riding the underground section was as if I was in London, Paris, Rome, Athens, Amsterdam, Warsaw, NYC or DC, except that it was clean, shiny and bright and very very quiet.

    WOULD I DO THIS AGAIN?
    I'd be happy to do that

    WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
    Of course- NIS5.50 per ride

    ADVICE
    * It is fun, convenient and efficient, so you should for sure do it
    * It requires a Rav Kav Israeli transportation card or Moovit app before you go
    * Be sure to include the underground segment in your adventure journey.

    It runs from Haifa University down to the Lev Hamifratz shopping centre and back.
    Inexpensive and a great experience
    Great views.

    Great trip. Perfect weather 13th October. One way is best if you want to walk the old city then lunch in one of the many small eateries and then walk the ramparts and finish at the old prison. Walked a a short distance for ice cream along the beach and then some went shopping in the Suk, others took the boat back to Haifa and some others walked some more and caught a sherut to return after sunset. Beautiful to see the Baha'i terassed gardens and shrine on Mount Carmel arising from Haifa Port.

    This is a really nice, highly serviced, brand new way to get up the mountain to Haifa University, and the Technion. It’s the price of a bus ticket, and leaves every 15! seconds!

    Roni Stern made everything about our trip to Israel memorable and special and once in a lifetime. I will never travel again without hiring a local guide with as much knowledge, humor, local insights, and historical information as Roni Stern. The children laughed and forgot about the walking and enjoyed it so much especially as we look back on it! Best local guide experience!!!!

    Sasha is top tier, he made my experience in Israel amazing. He has an incredible depth of knowledge on all things Israel and provides memorable details in a hilarious way. Next time I come back to Israel I will only book with Sasha because he is truly one of a kind.

    PROS
    * This is a major inter-city means of public transport for coastal cities and also Jerusalem and other non coastal cities
    * The website and smartphone application give good information, including all information regarding the train schedule- arrival time, train number, track/platform numbers
    * It is usually on time
    • Surprisingly always clean
    • Very smooth and super quiet direct non-stop high- speed (ke160 kph) access from airport to Tel Aviv and to Jerusalem
    * Signs and announcements also in English

    CONS
    • There can be tines when it is quite crowded and noisy, especially during rush hours including much of the day.
    • Stations generally not near nor adjacent to major famous tourist attractions
    • Some stations busy & unattractive- functional at best
    * Inside Tel Aviv city stations (Hagana, HaShalom and Savidor-Arlozoroff) have toxic fumes and exhaust.
    • Never any service on Sabbath and Jewish holidays from sundown the day before
    * The best method of payment is with the Moovit app, only in Hebrew
    • Otherwise, one must buy a ticket from the information desk OR have a Rav Kav card, which I’ve read can need purchased at the airport, but the payment system is not terribly user-friendly.

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    … because I took the train to the airport to go to Paris last week. The train passed through Tel Aviv stations.

    Also, I love the trains and train travel, and I'm always eager to ride one- to just about anywhere because I just about always enjoy the experience.

    WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
    Full fare is with the cost, and I have 50% senior reduction of that

    WOULD “I VISIT THIS PLACE” AGAIN?
    For sure

    ADVICE
    • Avoid busy times such as Sunday mornings (and Fridays)
    * Look into getting and loading the Moovit app, or purchase, have and use a non-refundable “RavKav” card: load and insert your card into the slot (not at all intuitive, logical nor easy) and then type and choose what you want to do- where you want to go, and agree to the purchase (deduction from the balance on the card). You must tap in and also tap out, and you need to have enough value on the card to get to your designated destination
    *. If you are in one of those aforementioned three stations in Tel Aviv, sit in the lobby above the train tracks until the time comes for your train and I then descend to get on the train.
