  • FAQ

    A little more info on how the hunts work( but I refuse to tell you everything so you can be surprised!)

    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!

     

    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. 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.. many solo hunters have had a fantastic time( check reviews on Trip Advisor and Airbnb!). 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 AFTER you book, 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 dont get hungry, wear good walking shoes and bring a fully charged cell phone.

    Q. Is this a good event for teams?

    The live Creative Soul Scavenger Hunts and Connectivity Games are wonderful event for teams, families, groups. Tara will design a custom clues for groups of over 8 or more and for special occasions host private hunts. Search for the Story can be done with a small group but this is an event that works for a solo person.

     

     

    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.. hopefully we will end up as friends! but so far i cant be in Sedona, Jerome, Kauai, Tuscon and Taos and Santa Fe at the same time.

    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. Please book for the right amount of people.

    Q. How much is this super fun adventure?

    The hunt price for most hunts is $33. Search For The Story is a longer event and is $50. Immersive Native Adventures are $45. The Connectivity Game is $20 a person.

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

     

    Here is how the discounts work: If you book 8 people, you get the 9th free. If you book 16 people, you get the 17th and 18th people free.

    Kids under 2 go free.

    Those are the only discounts.

    Thanks for your understanding.

     

    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 are the times and dates offered?

    I am flexible with direct booking times but generally I find the live hunts are best to start between 10 am and 1 pm, which gives time for a easy morning, great breakfast or lunch and plenty of time to reach your starting point. These hunts do take energy so I try host them at the time of the day where people usually have more. That said, I can often be flexible. I also do request 24 hours notice. Please message me at 5056920644 or doornumberthreefilms@yahoo.com and we will find a time that works for everyone.
    If you are looking at my Airbnb or Trip Advisor calendars you will notice I often take down available dates closer to the event dates as other locations book.

    Simply the newest and most creative Thing To Do In Santa Fe!

    "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.

    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.
