It will take you between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete and you can also explore at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from the location where you paused it.

    Great experience to check out lesser known spots and stories of San Francico. I've visited a couple of times before and still discovered new things. Great value for money as well!

    The absolute best way to see the city and explore. This is the second scavenger hunt we've done and we especially enjoy it because we can go at our own pace, stop at shops along the way and grab food, or even pause and resume the next day. We saw parts of Union Square, China Town, Fisherman's Wharf, and downtown that we never would have seen otherwise. Highly recommend it

  • San Francisco Embarcadero Scavenger Hunt Adventure

    5. San Francisco Embarcadero Scavenger Hunt Adventure

    Looking for a way to turn San Francisco Embarcadero into a giant game board? This interactive scavenger hunt combines the fun of the "Amazing Race" with a two–and–a–half hour sightseeing tour of San Francisco’s Embarcadero area.  Guided from any smart phone, you will make your way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. Your scavenger hunt route will show you hidden secrets of the Embarcadero area as you walk San Francisco's Bay Trail, tracing the eastern shoreline of the city. The tour requires approximately 1.5 miles of walking. Using a smartphone as the guide allows you to start whenever you would like, and determine your own pace of play. Stop to enjoy the ocean views, grab an ice cream or enjoy lunch at the Pier. Why not? It’s your schedule. 

    This was our second time using Urban Adventure Quest and we enjoyed it. The only thing was that it wasn't clear that it could take 1 to 2 hours for their system to be updated once we purchased the quest. If you had that on your website, that would have been appreciated. I would have purchased it before we left home rather than when we got there. I have recommended Urban Adventure Quest to friends and family. Good value and lots of fun.
