Shavuot falls on Wednesday so I have just one tour this coming week on Monday afternoon. 
On Monday 17th May we'll tour Rechavia.  Built in the 1920s as a "garden suburb" the upscale neighbourhood of Rehavia was home to many of Israel's early leaders.  We'll take in the neighbourhood's architecture and history, hear the stories of some of its more famous residents and find out why Yekkes were living in Spanish streets.
We'll meet at 2.30pm at the corner of King George and Keren Kayemet Le'Israel Streets (just outside the Zionist institution buildings).
Please wear comfortable shoes and bring hats and water for the tour.  It lasts 2-3 hours and costs NIS 60 per person.  Please register in advance 054-647-8955 or

The following week we'll tour Ir David on Monday afternoon 24th May and the Via Dolorosa and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Wednesday morning 26th May.
