    How would you define the word game? Game designers weigh in. Any glorious use of time.( I like this!) A game is problem solving.( True!) It's when you're using your brain to solve problems but in a fun, sort of entertainment context.( Yes, flex those brain muscles!) I think a game is a...
    Santa Fe is an incredible place for a scavenger hunt with its amazing art in public places, mix of the new with 500 years of history and stories and interesting locals to talk to. My hunts evolve over time and I am happy to offer some clues that show history from the Native American perspective....
    Fig and I just got back from a summer trip to gorgeous and friendly Steamboat Springs Colorado and Taos, New Mexico. My new hunt in Steamboat is on the Yampa Core River trail, along the beautiful river. This easy trail is also very bike friendly and is my first hunt offered both for bikers and...

    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 beautiful places, chatting with people and flexing your creative muscles 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. Bring an open mind and a blank slate so I can surprise you!

    Q. Is this a guided tour? You will be coming with me on the hunt?

    No, this is not a guided tour. You will probably learn as much as during a guided tour if you play full on, but that is up to you. You hunt master Tara has been a tour guide for 25 years and will interacting with you during the hunt. Most of the hunts, with the exception of Sedona are hosted on Whats App.

    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.The hunt is designed to work well for any number of players 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? 

    Find me on Whats App a day or two before your hunt, and for the day of the hunt, plan to give it plenty of time to reach the starting point, eat a meal before the hunt so you don't get hungry, wear good walking shoes and bring a fully charged cell phone.

    Imagine this is like going bowling.. get your shoes on, the ball ready and line up before you play and you have a great chance of success. The few people who don't do well on the hunt don't connect on Whats App prior to the game,their phone dies or they show up hungry, tired or late. Don't let that be you!

    Q. Is this a good event for teams?

    Creative Soul Scavenger Hunts are wonderful events for teams, families, groups. Tara will design custom clues for groups of over 8 or more and for special occasions host private hunts.



    Q. Are we going to meet you?

    I host most 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, interacting with you the whole time and responding to your clues. It is like having your own game show host and cheerleader in your pocket!

    Q. Is the price per person or per team?

    The price is per person. 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 and it slows the upbeat vibe we need for the best results. Please book for the right amount of people.

    Q. How much is this super fun adventure?

    The hunt price for most hunts is $39. The Rio Grande Immersive Nature Adventures are $45 per person.

    Q. I want it cheaper! Can i get a discount?

    There are no discounts on Viator.

    There are some discounts for large groups on Airbnb. Put in the number of your party to view. Not even I get the Airbnb discount system.

    There ARE discounts for DIRECT bookings: For every 8 people, you get the 9th free. If you book 16 people, you get the 17th and 18th people free, etc. For larger groups every 9th person is free.

    Kids under 2 go free.



    Q. Why should we trust you with our precious vacation time?

    Because I really care. Its my goal that this is 2 hours of the best time on your trip, that you have a joyful time, create fun memories with your friends and family, learn some of things I myself love about these beautiful places and have an experience you wouldnt have otherwise.

    Q. What if we dont like rushing and people telling us what to do?

    After 3 years of hosting, I have discovered some hunters prefer to take their time. Choose the Turtle Team option and cruise with a reggae beat. Explore at your own pace, enjoy the scenery and do the clues you like. Its all good! Just be aware both Turtle and Eagle teams do have the same amount of hunt time. Turtle teams will have to accept that they wont be able to do all the clues.



    Q. Wha ages are your hunts for?



    My hunts are for all ages of people who enjoy exploring, being creative and talking to people. Everyone brings something different to the mix. Kids do well on an adult led team. Teenagers at least 15 and up often do great as their own team. We can discuss how to divide the teams after booking.

    "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.

    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.
