    We really enjoyed wandering around for 2 days. Lots of great photo opportunities. People friendly although we were warned about being harrassed to buy, we didn't find that to be the case.

    Our tour guide took us here by bus from Jaffa gate describing as the place for the second coming of Jesus. From here it is all a downhill walk.

    We were directed to this market by our guidebook, which marks it as one of the sights not to be missed in Jerusalem.
    Knowing that the market gradually turns into a huge food court in the evening, we deliberately arrived here at the end of the afternoon to observe the metamorphosis.
    We perceived the market as colorful and lively, but after all no more so than many others in the Near East.
    What really amazed us is the liveliness of the scene at dinner time: a very pleasant place of attraction has been created, due to the enormous influx of people and the variety and richness of the refreshment places.
    Of course, we haven't neglected to dine here, in a small but cozy restaurant of Israeli cuisine.
    We understood that the origin of this beautiful market as a structured place dates back to the time of the British mandate, between the two world wars.
    The presence of the Jerusalem light rail (tramway) greatly facilitated our arrival in the neighborhood, and then our departure to the hotel.

    I recently did the tour of Old Jerusalem and was amazed by the experience. The highlight for me was walking in the narrow Hizkiyho cave, walking in the shallow water (can easily be bypassed). Overall, I highly recommend this tour to travelers of all ages interested in learning more about the history of this amazing city.
    While it's possible to do it on your own, I would recommend going with a guide for an enhanced experience.

    Everyone seems to know this place - great food, fun stores, and lots of "people watching". It's a long hill, so be prepared to walk uphill at some point.

  • PROS
    * Adjacent to world famous Jaffa gate entrance to Old City of Jerusalem
    * Next to the ancient Old City Wall from more than 500 years ago
    • Walking path to Jaffa Gate of Old City
    • Outdoor famous and exclusive upscale outdoor shopping mall
    • Very modern and busy and brightly lit and shiny and shimmering
    • Mingle with locals who are shopping and dining too
    • See how local people eat and shop and work together
    • See how the upper class locals shop
    • Sometimes there are street musicians and entertainers
    • Very large number of truly high quality restaurants, all of them with kosher supervision, and some with the "elegant" variety
    • Upscale exclusive (chain) retail stores
    * Historic area where the founder of the state first resided
    • Two large underground parking garages

    CONS
    • It’s a shopping mall
    • Some tourist interest or experience but more for relaxation, shopping and dining

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    ... while going to and returning from the annual pre-dawn Grand Hosanna ritual of pounding the willow branches at the Western Wall (see my "helpful" photos of the pre-dawn temporary stall on the walkway of the mall for selling the willow branches).

    The second, time, we had a business meeting.

    Both times, I wandered around, made observations for this tripadvisor note and took (hopefully "helpful" photos).

    ADVICES
    This place has the largest density of quality restaurants in the city- take advantage of that and have a meal while you are there.

    I can recommend Cafe Rimon (milky), Cafe Greg (milky), Roladin (milky) and Aroma (milky)- you can see my "helpful" recent reviews of the first two.

    I also have posted for you a very recent review of Kedma, which is meaty and outstanding.

    As far as "stuff" in the stores- eh, that's expensive.

    Please be sure to take note of where you parked (there is also the municipal Karta garage under there- take a photo of the identifying pillar (see my "helpful" photos from previous visits) and take note of where you came out on the pedestrian mall of the shopping area- when trying to leave by car, you will thank me.

    Don't buy anything here. You will not be able to avoid the souk on your trip to Jerusalem. There are interesting things for sale but you will be expected to bargain. You will be constantly hassled but best to avoid replying in a polite way. I noticed some antiquity shops with "certificates" of authenticity for the items. You would be brave to purchase here. However the souk is to beestenjoyed with the colours and smells.

    The 360 degree, panoramic views from the tower are amazing and so unique. No other views like it! Great for friends or family. If you go down one flight of stair from the elevator, you can look at the cool bells in the tower!

    I had a wonderful experience shopping for antiquities at Zak’s Jerusalem Gifts. Zak is warm, professional, and kind. He is very knowledgeable about biblical antiquities and has some exquisite pieces. He is quick to point out if a piece has been reconstructed when not readily apparent. He has reasonable and fair prices. Buying from him is a "no pressure" experience.

    Cool bar.
    We found this online and didnt have a reservation. After searching for it on google maps (and asking the coffee shop), we managed to get a table as it was early evening.
    The cocktail list itself is great but limited - i asked for a cocktail based on a few ingredients and the waiters were able to make me a lovely cocktail.
    Great date night place or with friends. Its small and cosy.

    This was a full week tour of the Holy Land. It started in Magdala and ended in Jerusalem.

    Our tour guide made the tour special! His knowledge of the Old and New Testament made the landscape come alive. His attention to detail made our stay in Israel flawless. He was constantly ensuring our questions were answered and our needs met. Herzl Ein Eli is his name.

    My wife and I were on an Ancient Lands cruise and booked 5 days of shore excursions with Guided Tours Israel. We did Biblical Galilee, Acre-Rosh Hanikra, Jerusalem and Bethlehem and Dead Sea and Masada although most cruises don't schedule 5 days in port. You can find many reviews on Cruise Critic Forums and on this website and they live up to those reviews. First, email communication from GTI is always prompt and exhaustingly informative. You should not have any questions about where/when/what/how long/etc after reviewing all the instructions GTI provides. Vehicles and guides were excellent, while on the mini-buses you could hear clearly but while walking you need to stay close to the guides and pay attention. We believe there was great value in the shore excursions but be prepared as Israel traffic is tedious and if there are any accidents/delays it can take "hours" to get to Jerusalem or Masada. Our Dead Sea excursion was quite a surprise, it is a beautiful color of blue and while the tour states the changing facilities are "basic" it was totally acceptable and we thought quite satisfactory for a visit. Be prepared to walk and bring water. The only part of the excursions we would have changed is the trip to Bethlehem after the long trip to Jerusalem. We arrived late and the crowds were overwhelming at the Church of the Nativity and if possible I would ask to visit Bethlehem first?

    Our guide Phil showed us around the key areas of Jerusalem, telling us wonderful stories about all four quarters and how history and religion influenced the past, present and future of this wonderful city.

    Made all of us have a magical time with a bit of storytelling, historical knowledge and plenty of funny moments.
