    We visited SF with our 12 year old son who was visiting his friend. My son (neuro-diverse brain) learned of this scavenger hunt and thought this gave a purpose on seeing SF in a different way than just seeing things and taking photo ops. He likes that it was not guided and he could be more in control of timing and the experience. We all had a blast. It was a great way to see SF even if we had seen/been to some of these before. We got to work together. There was a level of competitiveness to get the answers right. We were able to pause when we went to eat and take breaks. These breaks were good especially as each person began to experience fatigue.

    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.

    We did the hunt with our kiddos who are 12 and 15. The hunt took us 3.5 hours. My husband and I loved it and got everything we could out of it. There are moments when the kids were over walking or just in it for the task at hand vs. seeing the big picture of looking at the whole park or the whole street, so that's to be noted if you're doing it with kiddos. They where ready to just get the next thing done and move on. Had my husband and I been doing it alone, we probably would have taken longer to shop in the cute areas and grab snacks along the way, etc. We had minor app problems but it was quickly resolved and we were able to have a great time as a family. I dont't really suggest it if you have smaller kiddos with a short attention span.

    Great adventure/value, however there was a hiccup in that one of the pit stops was no longer in business - Lori's Diner in Ghiradelhi Square has closed. This stop in the scavenger hunt should be revised or dropped. Liked the option to phone in for final clue. Great value, a bit lengthy could've eliminated at least 2 stops to round out at 20. Saw far more of the city than I would've without this. Happy Travels!

    This is an awesome experience to see San Francisco! The only thing that put a damper on the beginning of our tour was that there was an event going on at the first stop. So that prevented us from entering a section of the garden. Other than that, the rest of the tour was amazing! My friends and I never rode a cable car before and now we have! Highly recommended, whether you are local to the city/state or not, this is a great time to see this beautiful city by foot.
