We had the best time! My friend & I found this scavenger hunt to be fun, interesting, challenging. I had been to San Antonio many times previous, but saw this fun city in a whole new way & learned many new things. We will do scavenger hunts in other cities with this app whenever they’re available!

This was a great way to learn some of the history and see lots of sights in this beautiful city. We stopped halfway through for lunch and it was nice to be able to pause the game. Would definitely recommend taking a backpack with water if playing during the summer - it gets really hot!

Directions were easy to follow, and the the historical notes that are part of the experience were fascinating! Intend to do more of these in other cities.

It’s was a lot of fun and I discovered things the area that I didn’t know was there. I also learned some history. I highly recommend.

What a brilliant day. Hector was a fantastic guide and the whole pace and structure of the day was perfect for us.
