“Great Fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

We went on a scavenger hunt at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. A great, fun way to see the museum. The hunt was 2 hours long and then you could stay at the museum afterwards and see things you missed during the hunt. Really fun. We had a teenager with us and she had more fun than she thought she would.

“A fun time tromping around the Freedom Trail- just wear comfy shoes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

We did the public Revolutionary Boston Scavenger hunt, which included the points on the Freedom Trail from Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, through the North End and back. The clues were clever and required teamwork to solve. The timeline of 2 1/2 hours made it challenging to get to all the points and answer 30+ questions. Wear comfy shoes; it's a lot of walking but a fun time for a nice day and educational to boot!

“Ok as a scavenger hunt, but pricey and not particularly challenging”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

This hunt was billed as literary and pun-ny, but it was disappointingly straightforward. The organizer was friendly and it was somewhat interesting to walk around Old Boston and learn some historical facts. But we were expecting something a little more puzzle-like and intellectually challenging and that this was not. We'd recommend The Accomplice in NYC as a much better alternative. More challenging, fun, and includes food/drink stop-off points.
