We did the Natural History Museum scavenger hunt as a work activity, and it was such a great way to get out of the office and have a fun time together as a team. The activity was engaging, challenging enough to keep it interesting but not too challenging that we couldn't figure anything out, and took a full two hours. As long time New Yorkers, we saw parts of the museum we'd never seen before, and we learned a lot along the way! Highly recommend Secret City hunts for a teambuilding or friend group activity.

We did the Secrets of Soho hunt for a team bonding activity and it was SO much fun! The clues were just the right balance of challenging but solvable, and each of our teams got super into it (not childish at all!). Jared was great to work with and accommodated a few last minute date/time changes. Thom did an excellent job orchestrating the actual hunt. Our employees are already talking about trying another one!

We had a blast with Secret City Scavenger Hunt on their Midtown adventure! Our host, Walter, was personable, gave clear directions and even checked in with us throughout the hunt! No app was needed, this was a checklist/clipboard hunt and truly generated good collaboration among the team - plus we each learned so much about various historical places within NYC. The service that Jared and his team provided was excellent - very communicative, checking in and they even took pictures of the group so we had some keepsake moments from our team building activity. If you are looking for a fun, engaging and creative way to bring your team together, reach out to Secret City Scavenger Hunts - we would definitely try another city hunt again!

This was an incredibly well-organized, fun team-building activity. My high school group going it challenging and exciting. The only recommendation I'd suggest is to figure out a way to start the different teams at different spots along the route, so they aren't following each other.

Our team had a great time on a Grand Central Scavenger Hunt with Secret City. We saw parts of Grand Central we never knew were there and learned a lot about its history. Thanks again to Jared and Thom!

Jared and Walter organized a fun and engaging scavenger hunt around Central Park which sparked friendly competition in me and my groups of friends! I was worried that the game would comprise of a lot of trivia that I wouldn’t be able to answer but it was all generally easy to follow including solving the puzzle at the end. We set the expectation with Secret City and our friends that the team my husband and I will be in will probably be slow and may not even be able to finish the full 2 hour competition as we were bringing our 8.5 month old with us. Our team was able to finish in 2nd place speed wise but with two mistakes, we came in 3rd to two other friend groups who both had perfect scores. They all told me how much fun they had and that it was a great birthday event idea! We were also lucky that the weather was on our side! We highly recommend Secret City for organizings similar fun and active events for a special occasion or just because you want to try something different. They very communicative throughout the process and explained everything clearly!

Had a great experience with our scavenger hunt at The Met for a work team building exercise. Our host Walter did a great job of explaining the process, helping us out if we got stuck (or if an exhibit was closed), and keeping us engaged from beginning to end. I appreciated that the scavenger hunt was done with pen and paper, and that the answers required folks to actually search the museum. Would definitely recommend!
