Fun surprises around each corner! - So fun! Through this scavenger hunt, we went into stores we wouldn't have typically gone into. We found the best wine, cheese, popcorn, and more all through this hunt. We laughed continually for the 2 hours! Highly recommended!

Great self-paced hunt - This self-paced scavenger hunt was just what we needed. It was a great way to explore shops and attractions that we not have stopped to see without these missions. Some favorites were Skidmore Art Gallery, Galena River Wine and Cheese, Root Beer Revelry, Kandy Kitchen. We stopped to meet new people along the way.

Fun on our Girls' Getaway - We really enjoyed our Scavenger Hunt. We met people we would not have met and did some things we would not have done without the Hunt. It was fun to be "in the hunt", snapping your photos and sending them in. You do have to use your imagination and "you only get out what you put in". I did not realize the Dares were not our Missions, and wish I would have realized that earlier in the Hunt because we spent our first hour on the Dares. Our guide was friendly and encouraging on our Hunt. It would be nice to have a price for a group vs each paying the individual price.

Get to know Galena - Fun but exhausting! We had three generations and we all enjoyed it a lot. Looking for places I might not have taken the time for on my own proved no only educational but entertaining too.

Seems like it would be fun, if you have cell service in Galena. - Since this is something that is remotely hosted, meaning that someone is not physically there, the instructions should be given when purchased. We had horrible phone service and could not access the instructions. Lots of standing around trying to figure out what to do. I cannot imagine we were the only ones that have ever had these issues.They would not give us our money back, but did say they would give us a credit to use for a future city - they have 600 locations and we have 6 months to redeem.

Waste of Money! - Do not recommend it, very disappointing! First, they did a very lousy job of communicating with us, Verizon Cell coverage is very poor in the Galena area, so trying to communicate with this group does not work. They were slow to communicate with us on how this works and get us the information. For the cost, I could send you a list of things to do and see, not worth it.

Waste of money - My friends and I would never pay money for this activity again or recommend this to anyone. It wasn’t fun or what we expected at all. If you could refund the$72 that would be great.
