I did the LA1 race with a group of friends and family for my 30th birthday celebration. Everyone in the group had such a fun time solving the clues and competing against each other and other teams. There were people ranging in age from 6 to 60+ on the day we went and everyone was able to finish the race without issue. It was such a blast getting to see different parts of downtown LA and Hollywood. The clues were tricky and engaging. It definitely involves a lot of walking and we were all exhausted at the end, but the experience was worth it.

Bob was enthusiastic and made sure everyone had a fun time. I would hands down recommend doing one of their races to anyone looking for a little friendly competition, adventure, or just a fun way to spend a day in LA. Bring snacks, water, sunscreen, and your game face. You won't regret it!

A bunch of buddies & I did the LA2 today and we had an absolute blast. After to speaking to both Bob & Larry before the race we enthusiastic for a great day. Without revealing too much LARF delivered an engaging, sly & rewarding experience that we all thoroughly enjoyed. We especially appreciated how the race was centered around the not so commercialised areas of downtown LA which gave us the opportunity to explore places we would not have even considered. I highly recommend this attraction for all.

We did the Sunday Race and had a blast. It took us about 4 hours to finish it (2nd place) and we got to see parts of LA we would have never thought to visit! I did the race with my three kids (7, 9 11) and even though they hung in there to the end, I would recommend the race for kids, ages 10 and up. Also, try to have another adult on the team to help solve clues. My son's math skills came in handy but another adult brain may have gotten us that sought after first place. The main idea is to have fun and see new places and those expectations were met to the fullest! I would definitely recommend the race to visitors and locals alike! Great Family Experience!!

My husband and I took my parents on a quick trip to LA. I found this through Viator.com (had never heard of that before) and we did the Hollywood area scavenger hunt tour. My parents (in their 60's) love road rallies, my husband (in his mid 20's)... is the opposite and was making fun of me for booking it...by the FIRST stop on our scavenger hunt on this tour we were ALL laughing and having a blast! This was so much fun and a great way to see the Hollywood area, get some samples of hidden gems and relax and chat with other groups over a drink (they gave us 2 tickets each for drinks) at the end. Our only complaint was that it wasn't long enough! We made it to 5 out of the 15 stops offered.

Fun for all ages and personality types weather you want to win, or just site see. We absolutely recommend this!

Again, tripadvisor and yelp did not steer me wrong. My group and I did this as part of my birthday festivities and it was a blast. I can't wait to do their other races.
