Awesome, fun & educational!

I live in Baton Rouge, only 80 miles from New Orleans so I've been MANY times during my life. This scavenger hunt was so fun, learned so much about New Orleans I didn't know & saw places/things I didn't know about. I highly recommend this to locals and visitors alike. Really fun & loved that you can go at your own pace.

A great way to start our trip!

We got to New Orleans and had to wait for our room, so we left our bags and went out on our scavenger hunt. It was a great way to get a taste of New Orleans. We found our way around the city and got our bearings. It was a great start!

Fun & Interactive

This was a fun tour and gave an interesting exposure to the City of New Orleans. It was a hot day when we did it with a lot of walking. It took us from the Riverfront to the top of the French Quarter, as well as in between, * Using puzzles like word searches made the experience more interactive. It took us about 3 hours which was well beyond the suggested time frame.. so plan accordingly. * We had disagreement with a couple of the answers.. still have confusion about our very first question. Sometimes, it was better not to think to deeply and make sure you use any info presented in front of you. Don't assume you know the answer. * Even with a new phone and battery, I exhausted my battery by teh final question. So, have a backup. * We would be excited to do this scavenger in other cities that we visit.
