This was a team building exercise we brook up into two groups (3 and 4 people). At first I was skeptical about the experience, we ended up having a lot of fun. I would definitely do it again. Our instructor Ari was great.

We've done a few of their tours in New York City and Washington, D.C. They provide a fun and unique way to see museums and other points of interest (including ones you've visited before!). The scavenger hunts are well-organized and structured.
