What age is the hunt appropriate for?

It’s a great activity for kids, teens and adults to enjoy together.

From what age do you have to pay to join the hunt?

Kids ages 6+ are included in your group number and younger kids are welcome to tag along although it will be hard for them to participate if they can’t read.

What is the difference between the Old City & Nachlaot Hunts?

Both hunts are fun for the entire family. On the Old City Hunt you will learn about the history of the area dating back to the time of the Temple.  The Nachlaot Hunt focuses on the people who lived in the neighborhood and about life in Jerusalem once new neighborhoods began to form outside the Old City Walls.

If I have done one hunt is it worth doing the other?

Yes, definitely. The hunts have similar styles but the content is completely different and it is worth doing both.

Can we bring a stroller on the hunt?

YES you can bring a stroller on the Old City and Nachlaot Hunt. We do not go down all the stairs to the Kotel in the Old City, there are very few stairs on the Scavenger Hunt itself.

How does the hunt work?

Your group will be divided into teams and given mission packs. You will have a guide who is dedicated to your group when you choose a private hunt.

Is there a guide with us all the time?

The guide will give you an introduction and then divide you into teams and send you on your way. The guide is always in the area and reachable by phone if you need something. The guide will visit the teams while the game is going on and meet you at the end of the game.


Is the hunt available in the winter?

YES but be aware that Jerusalem can get cold or rainy. If there is a storm then the hunt can be rescheduled in advance for another day.

Where do we meet?

Once you have received a confirmation that the hunt you have chosen is available then you will receive a paypal invoice. Once the invoice is paid you will receive a detailed confirmation email with the meeting place and contact info.

Where To Hunt?

Scavenger Hunts are a really popular way to get families to interact with history. Each group chooses a navigator, teacher, photographer, notekeeper ( and a Banker for the Nachlaot tour). You are given a Mission Pack with tasks and clues of things to do i...
