I'm in love with Creative Soul Scavenger Hunts! This is my 3rd location that Tara offers and I have had a unique and super fun time with friends at each one! Taos was an incredible whirlwind of art, history and quirky locals that helped us solve the clues. The art clues had us feeling like the latest in a long line of visiting artists. Highly recommend these adventures!

It was such an Awesome immersive adventure! This was referred to us by a Santa Fe friend who knows I love Meow Wolf. We had so much fun in this hunt learning a lot about the long and crazy history of Taos and being inspired by the generations of artists who have come through. We were considering this or a regular tour and we are super glad we went with this active adventure instead..it was actually far less than the regular tour so we felt it was a great value. I will be recommending to all my friends!

The scavenger hunt was fun and got us to see different things in Taos we otherwise wouldn't have seen. However, we were disappointed that the whole thing was done over the phone and she never met us in person. And it was all communicated over whats app. We had very little cellphone signal in the area which made it even more challenging to communicate with her. It was overpriced given that she never even met with us.

We were amazed at how much we learned about Taos in such a short time. Tara was amazing, fun, and incredibly knowledgeable. She pushed us out of our comfort zone and into the richest experience we have ever had traveling. We would do this again in a heartbeat!!

Tara was awesome. Wasn't sure what to expect but everyone from 8 to 53 had a blast. We met people we wouldn't have, talked to locals and had a lot of laughs. My family split in two groups and had so many laughs afterwards hearing what everyone did. Highly recommend for a unique fun experience

If you are traveling through the area, you owe it to yourself to try out this scavenger hunt. Tara is very warm and personable, and she made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. You will need to have a cell phone, but it's not an overly techy experience. Definitely check it out!
