Announcing New Wandering Artists Immersive Adventures for 2020- Safe Private Nature Oriented
An extremely high percentage of great thinkers, writers and creators throughout history have been avid wanderers. What is it about the act of wandering that feeds the creative mind? Wandering is not a mindless task but instead a surrender to the great mystery.
My newest adventure is the Verde River Magical Nature Hunt.
While my other hunts encourage interaction with locals these artistic adventures go within with creative exercises and collaboration.
Great for artists who want to start a new project, dive deep into a new place, this experience is also for anyone who just wants to go further into their own creativity.
Current offered locations are Santa Fe, Taos, The lower Rio Grande, Sedona and Kalaheo, Kauai.
Get ready for 2 hours of focus and activity.
This is a fun activity for friends,couples, families, bachorlette parties and team building work groups. Your hunt master will design a custom clue for special events and groups.
These unique and innovative hunts combine a creative challenge, a social experiment and a detective hunt for art and history clues.
A little more info on how the hunts work
Q. I am ready for a unique adventure! Is this for me?
A.If you love learning new things, exploring, chatting with people and flexing your creative muscles this is for you! If you are willing to play on the edge of your comfort zone this is for you!
Q. I have been on a scavenger hunt! So we will be searching for GPS points and geocaching?
Prepare for something completely new. There are no geocaching or GPS points on these hunts. You may be writing a haiki, singing to a cactus,asking a local to do a yoga pose and solving art and history clues.
Q. Is this a guided tour? You will be coming with me on the hunt?
No, this is not a guided tour. While you will learn as much as during a guided tour, your hunt master has been a tour guide for 25 years and will give you the clues and you will be off for 2 hours on your own to find the answers.
Q. Its just me, or just me and a friend. Do you guarantee competing teams?
No I can not guarantee completing teams or being able to put you on another team.. many solo hunters have had a fantastic time( check reviews on Airbnb). The hunt is designed to work well for any number of teams and team members. My very first hunter the first day I hosted was a Las Vegas police detective who came alone but met a lot of people and had a blast figuring out the clues!
Q. What should we do to prepare?
Show up a bit early to get parking and use the bathroom. Make sure every team member wants to participate. If someone in your party isnt interested in doing the hunt, alternative suggestions can be made by your hunt master for them to enjoy the 2 hours.
Make sure everyone has eaten and isnt doing the hunt hungry. Wear good walking shoes, bring water, and be ready to be creative and focus for 2 hours.
You definately need a fully changed cell phone( not having one can derail your game!). You also need Whats App on your phone for any hunt other than Sedona.
Q. Is this a good event for teams?
It is a wonderful event for teams, families, groups. Tara will design a custom clues for groups of over 8 or more and for special occasions private hunts.
Q. Do you accept gratuities? This was the most awesome event in my life!
Well, sure. Gratuities are gratefully accepted in the form of home deeds, epic Thai food, Kombocha, raw chocolate, cash and paypal.. many thanks!
Q. Are we going to meet you?
I host a lot of the Sedona hunts in person. In my other locations I host the event on Whats App, so we will be connecting through that and I'll definately be very involved in your hunt.. but so far i cant be in Sedona, Jerome, Kauai, Tuscon and Taos and Santa Fe at the same time. Some of my hunts also have stellar cohosts, like my good friend Joan in Tucson.
Q. Is the price per person or per team?
The price is per person. Yes, kids over 2 also do pay the per person rate. Please be sure to book for the correct number of people. If extra people show up, then the whole group needs to wait until payment is processed.
Q. How much is this super fun adventure?
The hunt price for most hunts is $29 to $33. Private hunts can be booked for $150 for 2 to 4 people( more than five people are billed at the normal rate) and include a custom clue or 2. Special occasions welcomed.

"Tara's scavenger hunt was just awesome. We got to see so much of old town Santa Fe during the hunt and in a way that we would not have on our own. It was fun and we learned a bunch about the town we were visiting. Great way to spend an awesome afternoon."
Magical Taos Adventure Hunt
The rich history and colorful plaza is a wonderful place to dive deep in creativity and exploration.
"Wow! This was so much fun. Tara’s scavenger hunt was the perfect balance of playful creativity and unique ways of interacting with and learning about Taos. Tara very generously shares her creativity, knowledge and fun/passionate spirit. She encourages you to be imaginative and bold in the ways you engage the game. Her responses throughout the hunt were timely and so thoughtful. Highly recommend!!!!" On Airbnb Experience reviews.

More Super Unique Hunts
Team building and group events offered.
Part creative challenge, part social experiment and part dive into art and history, this hunt is sure to engage you, offer an opportunity to meet others and learn local lore.
It is an immersive event, so unlike a passive guided tour you will be amateur detectives seeking out the clues( no using google!)
If you are very reserved person it may not be the best fit for you, unless you want to use it as an opportunity to try something new. Feel free to call me to discuss.
Yes! Yes! Tell me how to sign up!
What's App is a crucial app to have on at least one team members smart phone for this hunt as we will be using it to send audio and photo files we can't send on regular texting. So be sure to get that on your phone before the event. It is not a hard app to use but if you haven't done so before practice on it a little beforehand sending some photos and videos.. it will not be possible to help guests install and learn Whats App during the event.
