Highly recommend...

"Our family ranged in age from 7 weeks old to 58 and we had a great time! With the current coronavirus scare it was particularly great because the scavenger hunt took place outside, we didn’t have to touch anything except what they gave us (and they informed us that they personally sanitized it). They were informative on the duration and distance. If you’re a drinking family like ours, we highly recommend booking early afternoon and taking your time, breaking up the walking with some sit down time and drinks. Highly recommend this experience."

United States

Interactive and informative...

"The scavenger hunt was not only interactive and informative but challenging enough to require concentration which made it fun. I got a two hour tour of the city and saw lots of sites that helped me determine what I wanted to do with the rest of my time here. What really stood out is the character of the hosts. It began raining during my scheduled hunt time and we had to call it quits less than halfway through. Heather went above and beyond, allowing us to finish the next day which was no only a holiday, but a day they aren't typically open for the scavenger hunt. Lastly, she gave us advice where to find a good brunch spot. She recommended a French/Greek bistro off the beaten path which ended up being FANTASTIC. My girlfriend and I got a hell of a value with this booking!"

This scavenger hunt was perfect! It would be for all ages but it does require patience with each other and to just enjoy the experience. The hunt is well thought out and easy to follow but just interesting enough to keep you engaged! We learned lots! The hosts, Steve and Heather, were Amazing! "
