What you'll do

It all begins at a scenic spot that's a local favorite. We will get our missions and go over instructions/ground rules for the game. After a warm-up to prepare for this true sport, teams will take off to experience a wide variety of carefully curated locations throughout town. You'll drive in your car (special carless version available on request) to the various checkpoints, solving clues and accepting challenges that involve getting outside your comfort zone at each spot!

Both family and dog friendly, the game alternates between the indoors and outdoors with plenty of alternative spots and free choices too! You'll send photos to your host to document your progress. You can even interact with locals who can help with clues! You won’t be able to avoid having fun, uncovering hidden gems and local secrets, making memories, laughing and learning along the way! You’ll be part of the rich culture of this dynamic city! Every turn is full of surprises, so questions in advance are welcomed! Unlock future discounts on our hunts in 20+ other cities! Great for corporate teams and other special groups too!

Where you'll be

Your quest begins west and generally unfolds all over town across roughly 10-15+ surprise checkpoints! Plenty of holes in the wall are just waiting for you to discover them off the beaten path. Quirky destinations await: whimsical shops, street art, curious ruins, nature, culture, conversation pieces, historical landmarks, culinary delights, and more.

What a fun way to see the area! From a warm greeting at the start to helpful hints and encouragement along the way! We had a great time really “seeing” more of what was around us!

Flexible adventuring . We were in Galveston. With a dog. At Mardi Gras. The Mardi Gras festivities set most of the strand off-limits to dogs. Kat personalized Our day so that we could use substitutes for sites within the Mardi Gras controlled areas. We enjoyed ourselves! Kat has a lot of quirky clues to make you hunt for answers. After our scavenger hunt, we sat down on the parade route and enjoyed the festivities! We enjoyed ourselves very much and recommend Kat and Trevor (the guy who started us off) very highly.

Such a good time! The hunt makes you really get out of your comfort zone and have some fun. You see hidden gems you wouldn’t see without the challenges. 10/10 would recommend

Our Galveston experience was great! This is the third scavenger hunt we’ve done with Kat & Alan and it was great as always. We will definitely continue to do more at their locations!! Worth it for locals to learn more about their city or travelers.
