Pricing is per individual but teams must book together to be in same adventure.

* A traveler said: "I chose this scavenger hunt because I needed to do something fun and interesting during shelter-in-place. I've lived in SF for over 5 years and even I learned from this hunt! There were so many interesting detours to places I know well, or at least I thought I did. I used to work down by Yerba Beuna, but I didn't know much about the area. I used to live in North Beach, but I couldn't have told you anything interesting about Chinatown! I learned so much. You'll certainly get your steps in as well. I totally recommend this adventure. 10/10."
