Important information
Know before you go
A team may have as many people as you like. However, the tour is typically best with no more than 6 people on each team. Large groups can break up into many teams and compete for the best point score and time. Each team needs to purchase a Quest with a unique email address and password.

This tour is offered at a fixed group price instead of a per-person pricing scale, so this is the perfect city adventure for groups who want to get the best bang for their buck.

All information you need to start your tour will be sent to your smartphone, which will be your guide (you will not meet with an actual person).

You may purchase your tour days, weeks, or months before your adventure.

It's a good idea to bring water, snacks, money, a city map, calculator, pencil and paper and, of course, a fully-charged smartphone.
