Our family of 4 (including a 15 and 8 yr old) went on the scavenger hunt in the Jewish Quarter. We not only had a great time but we learned a tremendous amount about the places and people of the Jewish Quarter. This is an exciting, interactive, and novel way to tour the Old City. I would highly recommend this activity when you come to Jerusalem. Tali was a pleasure to deal with both before and during the activity. The stories she told us while on the scavenger hunt made the history "come alive."

My family participated in the scavenger hunt in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City. Our children range in age from 10-16. Each participant had a role to play. We were given a book of directions, a book of chronicles that gave us the stories behind each landmark and a set of pictures of "hidden" things within the Quarter for us to find. This part was very fun for our youngest. Along the way there were questions to be answered and tasks to be done. We were very moved by the stories. Often the stories illustrated the personal experience of individuals . For instance the reading of a letter written by a woman soldier serving in the Haganah. By the end, we were left with a new appreciation of the History of the Jewish Quarter and the spirit of the people who lived there.

I've been in the old city of Jerusalem countless times. Walked around in the Jewish quarter countless times; & I never saw some of the very interesting sites scavengers sent me to! It is well thought out, informative & fun. I highly recommend to any group of teenagers or older

We did the Jerusalem Old City scavenger hunt as a family of 4 (including a 9yr old and a 7yr old). We had SO MUCH FUN!
Everyone had a role, everyone was engaged in the activity, and despite having visited Jerusalem's old city probably 10 times on vacations there over the past 18 years, only now do I have an appreciation for when and why things were built, by whom, and the stories behind some of the landmarks. It took me through alleys I didn't know were there, and had me discovering sites and artifacts that I wouldn't have noticed without the assistance of the guides.

I've already recommended it to a number of friends, and we're already planning another scavenger hunt with extended family for our next trip.

A++
