Best of Tel Aviv and Jaffa Accessible Shore Excursion

1The 8 hour Best of Tel Aviv and Jaffa Accessible Shore Excursion includes a step-free route and accessible transportation in a wheelchair van. Enjoy Israel’s second largest city as you walk/roll down Rothschild Boulevard, dine in an accessible restaurant in the trendy Jewish neighborhood of Neve Tzedek, and visit the Old Jaffa Railway Station.

Your Tel Aviv accessible shore excursion starts with pick up from your cruise terminal in Ashdod. Your guide and driver will meet you there in an accessible van with a wheelchair ramp and you will start your journey to Jaffa. There, you will explore this ancient port city (sometimes called Joppa) that is known for being mentioned in Biblical stories about Jonah, Solomon, and Peter.

You will see the HaTachana or Old Jaffa Railway Station, which was opened in 1892 but closed down in 1948. It has just recently been reopened after being renovated and turned into leisure centre, home to several cafes, shops, and art installations.

Walk/roll through the Jewish neighborhoods of Neve Tzedek and Neve Shalom, a trendy part of town located near the Carmel market and not far from the coast. These neighborhoods have become a place where art and culture flourish, and you can find many unique coffee shops and restaurants here. You will break for lunch at an accessible restaurant in Jaffa in the Neve Tzedek neighborhood before continuing the tour.

After lunch, you will drive to Tel Aviv and walk/roll down Rothschild Boulevard, one of the most well-known, prevalent streets in Tel Aviv. It was one of the first streets to be built in Tel Aviv when the city was established in 1909. The tree-lined strip in the middle of the boulevard is a fantastic scenic route down this iconic boulevard, where you will see the city’s wealthiest and most prominent residents shopping and enjoying a meal at one of the boulevard’s many upscale shops and restaurants.

At the conclusion of your Tel Aviv shore excursion, your driver will take you back to the cruise terminal in Ashdod.
