About the tour

Since its early days, Tel Aviv has been a magnet for dreamers. In pre-state Israel, all Tel Avivians had a collective dream - to reestablish a Jewish national home; as well as a more personal one - to build their dream house. The unique architecture of the "Dream Houses" of 1920's and 1930's Tel Aviv awarded the city a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. On this tour, we'll see the most amazing "Dream Houses", talk about their designers' ambitions and manifest Goethe's statement, that architecture is "frozen music".

Tomer

I've been guiding tours in Tel Aviv since 2008. I started out of fascination with my family's history - the Chelouche family is one of the founding families of Tel Aviv. If you want to learn about how the city has transformed over the course of several generations, then look no further because I'll be able to give you a bit of a unique perspective! I love to show people around Tel Aviv and share stories about why this is the coolest city in the world.

Tomer has been guiding since Oct 2008
