Amazing New Orleans Scavenger Hunt
Looking for a way to turn New Orleans into a giant game board? Urban Adventure Quest has created an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the amazing race with a three-hour sightseeing tour of New Orleans. Guided from any smart phone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history.
The adventure begins near the downtown waterfront and takes you on a journey alongside the Mississippi River and through some of the city's famous marketplaces. From Jackson Square to the many fabled streets of this pirates' port of call, your team will truly experience it all. The tour requires approximately 1.6 miles of walking. Using a smart phone as the guide allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. Stop midway for some jambalaya or a beignet - why not, it's your schedule? Offered at a fixed price for a group vs. per person pricing, this city tour/game offers a great value to those on a budget.
This was a very fun thing for our grown family to do. We got to see some great places and learn some interesting things. It was very similar to The Amazing Race and we loved it even though we got ahead of ourselves a couple of times and didn't take our time in reading the clue.

This tour is so much fun. You download the scavenger hunt to your phone and then follow the directions. It is a great way to discover the city and learn about its history and culture at your own pace. I have been to New Orleans several times and I saw parts of the city that I had never seen. This is great for someone who hates tours and hates listening to a tour guide go on and on about things that don't interest you.
