Instead we explore why we Icelanders are indeed proud of our local food, by focusing on the absolute most delicious traditional cuisines – that we still enjoy today!

In our tours you will have the chance to try the best local cuisines of Iceland in each season, like the delicious Icelandic lamb that every Icelander grew up loving, homemade Icelandic ice cream from a secret family recipe, a local cheese, the rooted tradition Skyr, a hot dog from the famous Icelandic hot dog stand, an amazing seafood cuisine and much more unlike anything you have ever had before.

Israel Food Tours: Ramle – Superb ethnic cuisine in and underprivileged and under-appreciated city

Trip Itinerary

·        Pick up from hotel**
·        Tour through the Ramle market, the region’s largest, and discover vegetables and herbs found nowhere else in the central region.
·        Taste some of the best bourekas in all of Israel and possibly the region’s best hummus
·        Have lunch at a very authentic Jewish-Indian eatery and learn about the Jewish-Indian community in Israel.
·        Tour some of Ramle’s historic sights including the impressive underground cisterns
·        Drive back to hotel

For those wishing to visit an area that is truly off-the-beaten track, the Ramle tour is ideal for you. Ramle is an underdeveloped city compared to most of the other communities in the central region of Israel. For this reason it has been neglected, touristically, despite offering some very important historic sights and delicious foods to taste. On this tour we will visit one of region’s largest and most authentic markets, Ramle Market. There will be tastings of the excellent bourekas and hummus that Ramle has to provide and discover vegetables and herbs you can’t find anywhere else in the region. After lunch at a traditional Jewish-Indian eatery we will tour some of the fascinating and overlooked historic sights that Ramle has to offer.

*Itinerary will vary based on the group’s requests and availability of activities.
**Participants must be based in the Tel Aviv area. We will not pick up and drop off participants outside of the Tel Aviv area.
