This scavenger hunt was awesome. We were taken to cool neighborhoods and tasked with interesting quests. I would absolutely use this company again!
scavenger hunt for all

We visited SF with our 12 year old son who was visiting his friend. My son (neuro-diverse brain) learned of this scavenger hunt and thought this gave a purpose on seeing SF in a different way than just seeing things and taking photo ops. He likes that it was not guided and he could be more in control of timing and the experience. We all had a blast. It was a great way to see SF even if we had seen/been to some of these before. We got to work together. There was a level of competitiveness to get the answers right. We were able to pause when we went to eat and take breaks. These breaks were good especially as each person began to experience fatigue.

Thanks for the review! Glad your son found us and we were able to show SF in a fun new way!!
A perfect way to see San Francisco!

I chose this scavenger hunt because I needed to do something fun and interesting during shelter-in-place. I've lived in SF for over 5 years and even I learned from this hunt! There were so many interesting detours to places I know well, or at least I thought I did. I used to work down by Yerba Beuna, but I didn't know much about the area. I used to live in North Beach, but I couldn't have told you anything interesting about Chinatown! I learned so much. You'll certainly get your steps in as well. I totally recommend this adventure. 10/10.

So glad you learned some great stuff about your home city and had fun during the process!! It’s nice that these are all outside to allow for some fun while being safe.
Great adventure/value, however there...

Great adventure/value, however there was a hiccup in that one of the pit stops was no longer in business - Lori's Diner in Ghiradelhi Square has closed. This stop in the scavenger hunt should be revised or dropped. Liked the option to phone in for final clue. Great value, a bit lengthy could've eliminated at least 2 stops to round out at 20. Saw far more of the city than I would've without this. Happy Travels!
This is an awesome experience to see...

This is an awesome experience to see San Francisco! The only thing that put a damper on the beginning of our tour was that there was an event going on at the first stop. So that prevented us from entering a section of the garden. Other than that, the rest of the tour was amazing! My friends and I never rode a cable car before and now we have! Highly recommended, whether you are local to the city/state or not, this is a great time to see this beautiful city by foot.
