This was our second time participating in an Israel ScaVenture and the whole family loved it again. Our children, age 8 and 15 were very involved and we all had fun while learning about Israel history. We look forward to our next adventure with Tali, who is well-prepared, knowledgable, and friendly. Awesome activity!!!

We thought our Israel scaventures scavenger hunt was fantastic! We spent much of our time on our 3 week trip to Israel in the Old City but still learned so much and explored so many new and off the beaten path places during the couple of the hours we spent on our Old City scavenger hunt on our last day....

I took my daughter and her best friend (both 12 year old Israelis) on the scaventure in the Old City, and the kids really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed it, and learnt a lot about my hometown that I had no idea about. Definitely to be recommended.

We used Israel Scaventures as an activity to celebrate my son's bar mitzvah, with several of his friends and family of all ages. I was concerned that the level would be too low, or that it would be too "kitschy" for jaded family members, but I was very wrong. Everyone was engaged except for perhaps the smallest children (under 5).... More

We did a hunt in the Nachlaot neighborhood. There is no way that my four kids would have stayed involved if we had just taken a typical "stand-up" tour. Having jobs for each of them combined with Tali's engaging presentation and the varied nature of the tasks and topics included in the scavenger hunt made it perfect for our family.... More

We went on the Old City Scavanger hunt. We were about 25 or 30 people, family from the US and Israeli's. This was a great opportunity for us to bond while walking around the beautiful Old city of Jerusalem. What's amazing is now my kids feel like they "own" the Old City. They know the ins and outs, they know... More

I have "hunted" with Israel ScaVentures, with map, pack and source sheet in hand, in Jerusalem's Old City and the narrow winding lanes of Nachlaot. When I heard that there was a new "ScaVenture" in Gush Etzion, it was just a matter of me saving the date. The "Gush" hunt was perfect for my family. Unlike the other hunts which... More

I have participated in Scaventures in the Old City, in Nachlaot, and in Gush Etzion. I absolutely love the program and can't recommend it enough. It is fun for all ages, but it is also educational for everyone, regardless of age or how much time you have been in Israel. No tour guide can talk at kids and keep them... More
