      What a terrible tour…Poorly Operated Prescott Az is Charming
      Well, well, well…….the woman or AI person was nice that set us up. We were in Prescott AZ. But they thought we were in Denver?……?? Really….ok that was a quick fix. Great temperature seeing it is AZ. We were designated to meet at a coffee house. The bathrooms were filthy. I am surprised that they were allowed to stay open. But behind the building was beautiful. There was a creek and tables and trees and benches to hang out. It was lovely. I am not sure if the costumers knew it was back there. Also the front patio was spacious and nice too. We started our adventure looking for 4 stores and restaurants. The company gave us the names and we were to find them. Ok….. Well….the Pizza place was closed down. We found the boutique. What were we suppose to do when we found it? Take a photo. We did. Ok ..then a block away was another store. That one was closed down with nothing inside. What are you supposed to do? Take a picture so we did a picture. Nothing in the building with the address on top of it. Then we looked for the fourth place this time we realized that this was really not a good organization game and apparently not updated For quite some time so I decided to boycott and we had fun doing our own thing looking for historical Buildings with a deer on top of the high rise roof and meeting fun people. We took pictures of a bobble head Buddy sitting on a bicycle and posted everything proving that we could have fun without this dumb game that was out dated and controlled by some dumb AI system. What a waste of $. Do not fall for this took like we did! But we do love Prescott Az it is so charming.

      We didn't get the hype.
      You have to have Whatsapp, your camera, Google maps (or similar) open for about two hours, which completely drained my battery. The dozen "challenges" were vague ideas and locations on a Canva presentation. They were not made by a local, neither did they really incorporate anything specific to Solvang. There was not even a general map so you could plan out this adventure. We somehow got 4 million points but I don't know if that is good or bad. Maybe it would have been more fun with a big group but as a couple it was definitely not worth $40+.

      It never occurred. My instructions were not clear. My email stated that I was texted multiple times, I was never texted. Then, I noticed at the end it mentioned something about using WhatsApp. I NEVER would have agreed to this. I want a refund or I’m filing charges for fraud and false advertising.

      What a waste of money!
      This was a terrible experience. The company mixed our event up with Charlotte, NC. It was just a power point with no instructions. The PowerPoint just said “do a silly dance” or “take a selfie by the museum”. Absolutely a waste of money.

      The 3 musketeers on the hunt!
      The scavenger hunt was a creative and fun way to get to know the town of Gruene, TX! We enjoyed answering the questions, meeting the challenges and learning! We will do one of these the next time we go to a different town!

      We ended up not doing it. Waited in 90 degree heat for 42 minutes for some sort of email or text on what to do next after meeting in designated starting point. After a phone call was made, we received a dozen emails, including one that blamed us because we signed up late. We are in the middle of fighting for a refund because we no longer had time to complete the hunt.

      Great, fun experience
      My granddaughter and I did this scavenger hunt, we are Warwick residence but we had such a fun time. The activities are very cute and get you moving throughout the town. We laughed our way through town and even stopped and had something to eat along the way. We did lots of video submissions and photos too. A very enjoyable experience!

      Hunt for a good time
      Was a little hesitant at first, Stavanger Hunt over the phone, but you know what we really got into it, out host Kat and Pail were really encouraging. The clues were fun, interactive and informative. It really was like a pick you own adventure. Great was to see the city, learn new things and have fun! I highly recommend it!

      Absolutely Worth It!
      We had an absolute blast with this! Would highly recommend it many times over. Probably will look at doing similar scavenger hunts in other cities. This made the last day of our anniversary trip an absolute blast. Our host Jacquelyn was wonderful to work with😊

      Playing around Madison
      This was such a fun way to see Madison! I tried things I never would have tried and had a blast. Having objectives for each stop helped me really engage with the area. My guide, MaryAnna, was especially fantastic--so kind and interactive as I explored. Would recommend for anyone!

      Loved it! Give it a try!
      The scavenger hunt was so fun and engaging! My cousins and I were able to see parts of Fenwick Island that we probably would not have come across if not for this opportunity. MaryAnna was so sweet and engaging, and she made the entire experience so memorable.

    Our favorite part of the Charlottesville Challenge Scavenger Hunt was meeting and interviewing people who live and work there. The entire adventure was fun, and an amazing way to explore and get to know the city. This gave us the opportunity, though, to step outside of our comfort zones and approach strangers with questions. It was awesome how willing to help they were when we told them we were on a scavenger hunt.
