We did the scavenger hunt on bicycles, so we were able to move fairly quickly. Would have taken a bit longer walking. Overall, a very fun event that involved the whole team in figuring out and searching for the answers. This wasn't simply "find a location and snap a picture." You have to do some simple math and figure out the puzzles to get to the answers, which made is so much more interesting. And...in meantime, you learned quite a bit about the area around downtown Boise. I would highly recommend this event!
Understanding just how to get started was a bit confusing. Thankful for the crew at GetYourGuide, we were able to get help with the process. The actual activity was fun, mind provoking, helpful in pointing out fun facts and things we might have missed. We enjoyed the experience and would try it again in another area!
We had a great time walking and seeing the city. There is a LOT of walking so be prepared. Also, make sure you register online after you pay but before you begin the tour. That part was a bit confusing
I would definitely do this in another city. Fun way to explore a new place.
