This is what people who purchased our Bites card said about us:
“Yalla Basta’s Bites card took me by the hand; I didn’t have to spend time thinking how to distribute the room I have in my stomach for food. Without the card, I guess I would have missed the experiences others specially come here for. Knowing where to go created a more purposeful experience for me, a non-vague and uncomplicated experience. All this without having to search for things online and without having to make special preparations in advance, without getting lost while walking around the market and without going home, thinking that perhaps I missed some significant place in the market. I’ve tasted the best of the best, with precise essentiality, all in good taste. I totally recommend the Bites card.”
(May Shuv, Nana 10)
“On Friday, my wife took me on a tour around the market with the Bites card for my birthday. It was an amazing tour, really… I recommend it with my heart (and mouth). Tasty, hospitable, a teaching experience – in short – highly recommended.”
I promised I’d tell you how it was, so here it is… it was just excellent!!
Everything was very organized and clear, starting from the collection of the ticket, through the explanations and directions and all the way through the tour itself.
It was tasty, varied and my husband, who was the object of the tour, was absolutely thrilled with the concept.
To put it shortly – way to go – what a great idea, great execution and great, attentive and quick service, and we will gladly continue to spread the message.
(Shira, Rishon Le’Zion)
“Today we were on a tour with the Bites card. It was absolutely incredible. Everyone gave us a warm welcome and invested in us above and beyond!!”
(Michael and Hofit Gutsdiner, Givat Shmuel)
“We came, we tasted, we enjoyed. The organization is efficient. We received a warm welcome everywhere. Way to go!!!”
(Dalia and Arye Shachal, Ein Gedi)
“We were on a team-building day in the middle of the winter, seven hungry and frozen people. We collected the ticket from a lovely shop at the market and immediately began our tour with the Bites card. Alongside the amazing tastings at the boutique stands, searching for the next stand or shop was such a wonderful experience. We enjoyed the explanations about each place as well as the satisfying, heartwarming tastes. The market has become a place that is fun for walking, tasting and buying at. What a magical atmosphere!”
(Dafna Zolfian, Har Hatzofim Leadership)
“We started with a cup of cappuccino accompanied with organic cookies – that’s all we needed to get warmed up on such a cold day. We continued to indulge ourselves with an “indulging burekas – accompanied with a hard-boiled egg and pickles – which was excellent. We continued on to the Halva booth, then our stomach began to protest and begged us to slow down a bit; we continued on to the cheese tasting and after tasting around 8 types of cheese – we understood that we won’t be able to make it to the next stop. We raised a white flag and announced a temporary surrender. We absolutely enjoyed it – the tales, the aromas and how not- the food – and we were left with a taste for more… (well, we still have half a card left).”
(Dalit Russo, Zur Hadassa)
