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.

We had a blast. We've been to the Met before but got to see it from a totally different vantage point while searching the exhibits. We're now looking to go on more of the adventures they offer.
