Q. What ages is this hunt designed for?
A. The hunt is active and challenging and designed for all ages. Kids do well on an adult led team and older teens can be their own team, if they like.
Q. We want to go slow & do this hunt over more hours than scheduled or go out to eat in the middle of the hunt. Is that ok?
A. Your hunt is scheduled for 2 hours & it does not extend. Its highly recommended you eat before your hunt so you arent hungry during the game. Some tips prior to the game will help you make the most of your hunt time.

Tara was very helpful, she checked in ahead of time with us, she was very very interactive with us during the experience! I would definitely do another hunt in another city with her!

Tara's Scavenger Hunt was fun, we greatly enjoyed talking to people which held us up a bit in finishing up the scavenger list. Great activity for meeting people and a great way to learn a bit of Santa Fe history.

Tara was an amazing guide my family got to learn so much about Santa Fe and had so much fun interacting with others to try and find the places and things. There was also a lot of unconventional stuff like random acts of kindness or meditating for five minutes. All in all it was a new, fun and exciting experience for my whole family.

What a terrific experience. We felt like we got a speedy introduction to Santa Fe, it’s multi layered culture and even current cultural events. It was enjoyable for both our kids (9/12) and we met a terrific shopkeep who we made friends with and on and on. So worth it and grateful for the thought and prep that went into this adventure! Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Santa Fe scavenger hunt! I loved how Tara weaved together art, history, and interacting with locals to make it a special and memorable experience. I would definitely go on one of Tara's adventures again in the future.
