Vancouver BC: Amazing Scavenger Hunt Adventure Tour

1. Vancouver BC: Amazing Scavenger Hunt Adventure Tour

Looking for a way to turn Vancouver into a giant game board? On this tour you can join an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the Amazing Race with a 2.5-hour sightseeing tour of Vancouver. Guided from any smartphone, groups will make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. The adventure begins in the heart of downtown at Hotel Vancouver, and takes you on a well-designed course past historic landmarks, a steam clock, and the Olympic cauldron. The tour requires approximately 2 miles of walking. Using a smartphone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want, and determine their own pace of play. You can stop for a bite to eat along the way or a cappuccino by the bay, creating your own schedule. Some points of interest you will encounter on this tour include Hotel Vancouver, the Vancouver Public Library, the Queen Elizabeth Theater, Victory Square, the Steam Clock, the Sinclair Center, Canada Place and the Olympic Cauldron.
