What's tour about

For those, fascinated by history, secrets and legends: learn the history of 4000 years during one quick tour.

Egyptians, Crusaders, Napoleon, Ottomans, and Jews — all stepped in Joppia, today known as Jaffo. And all of them left artifacts, archeological sights, and legends on this land.

We will start our quest-tour at the entrance to the Old City of Jaffo and will continue thru its narrow streets, straight to the heart of the ancient City. While traveling thru centuries, we will visit Simon the Tanner's House (a place where the first family was converted into Christianity). We will look for a hidden door, behind which Napoleon's army was rescued and of course, we will look for Egyptian artifacts! Legends and truth intertwined during thousands of years of history.

Let's have a walk in this ancient city and try to discover the most amazing legends and stories that happened here and extraordinary personalities that lived here.

For the travelers' choice: tours and quest-tours (starting from 1 participant). You have an option to choose between quest and tour. If you prefer to take a tour, just press "Next" at the end of each task.
