Who are we?

We are family and friends who enjoy traveling and playing games together. Read on to discover more about Tourist Scavenger Hunt.


We endeavor to build touristic scavenger hunts that mix easy and tough challenges, that are family friendly and fun. Moreover, we really try to provide insight and discovery about the city you are visiting.

Who doesn’t enjoy traveling, movies, music, games, and room escape challenges? We figured if we’d have fun building and testing these Tourist Scavenger Hunts, you would also enjoy doing them. This new way of discovering a city via a walking tour with various challenges is a great way to to learn about its history and discover its layout.

Simple And Fun

Each Tourist Scavenger Hunt is around 40 steps, 2-3 hours in duration on a 3-4km circuit which brings you back to the start.

How we do it

  • We plan our trips extensively and prepare the scavenger hunt in advance.
  • Then, we test it on the ground, usually fixing information and directions. Further, we often create many more challenges on-site than we can prepare in advance.
  • Finally, we build the Tourist Scavenger Hunt online and have friends test it to ensure its ease, smoothness, and comprehension.

Why we do it

We’ve done a few scavenger hunts like these from other providers and really enjoyed them. We also had plenty of ideas and info we thought should be included. When Geneviève suggested, “we could build one ourselves,” that was all Samuel needed to start work on Tourist Scavenger Hunt. As a matter of fact, it is now an integral part of every trip we plan and take.

Why it’s going to be fun for you

As you walk each scavenger hunt, we try to mix up the types of challenges and their difficulty levels. Indeed, some are simple, others are tougher. However, none are too complicated. We also include any movie, musical and historical information we can at every stop to make this a learning experience as well.

We also mix up the types of information you’ll learn along the way. For example, we’ll discuss history, architecture, pop culture, and celebrities / important persons.

(Translated by Google) Ottawa! I was hesitant between a 3* but I give it a 4* because I think it’s a great idea for a treasure hunt when you know the city. If you have to respect a schedule I would tell you to leave instead to find parking. The parking meters work every 2 hours for $6 and you have to come back to get another coupon to add in the car. Difficult to find the starting point. The site only gives one address which is the curtain center (shopping center). In a city we don't know, it's very difficult to get our bearings so in an hour, we had only done 1/4 of the hunt. I imagine it would be very interesting in a city we know, to teach children the history. You really need to have a good battery on your cell phone, water and snacks. In short, maybe we will do it in Montreal... (Original) Ottawa! j hésitais entre un 3* mais je donne un 4* car je trouve que c’est une super belle idée comme chasse au trésor quand tu connais la ville. Si vous avez à respecter un horaire je vous dirais de partir plutôt pour trouver un stationnement. Les parcomètres fonctionnent au 2H pour 6$ et vous devez revenir pour prendre un autre coupon à ajouter dans la voiture. Difficile de trouver le point de départ. Le site donne seulement une adresse qui est le centre rideau (centre commerciale). Dans une ville que nous ne connaissons pas, cela est très difficile de s’orienter alors en une heure, nous avions fait que le 1/4 de la chasse. J’imagine que cela serait très intéressant dans une ville que nous connaissons, afin d’apprendre aux enfants l’histoire. faut effectivement avoir une bonne batterie sur son cellulaire, de l’eau et des collations. Bref, peut être nous le ferons à Montréal...Frenchie FamilyAugust 16, 2019
(Translated by Google) Really good! We did the Old Montreal rally as a family and it was great! 2 children aged 11 and 14, they really liked it! We took our time to do it! Little picnic near the locks! Truly a magnificent day to discover Old Montreal while having fun! To do again! (Original) Vraiment bien! Nous avons fait le rallye Vieux-montreal en famille et c’était génial! 2 enfants de 11 et 14, ils ont vraiment aimé! On a pris notre temps pour le faire! Petit pic nic près des écluses! Vraiment une journée magnifique à découvrir le Vieux Montréal tout en s’amusant! A refaire!Michèle BoivinJuly 22, 2019

I tried the Paris hunt on my last trip and enjoyed it a huge deal. Paris is beautiful, this hunt makes it a lot of fun on top of that. Try it, it's worth your time and you'll fall in love again. J'aime tourist scavenger hunt Paris!!Jean RodrigueJune 4, 2018
