    Should be noted that this hunt is not totally doable in winter. 2 of the questions were buried under snow, one of which I was not able to uncover. Also, need to be creative on how to get to the next point as some paths are clearly closed in winter. Would also be nice to be informed of the general trajectory and the end point beforehand. That apart, the hunt went fairly well.

    Excellent customer support from the provider. Thank you. Too bad this scavenger hunt is so long and poorly designed. Only good for keeping the driver awake on long-distance trips.

    Did it as a family of 4 with kids age 9 and 12. We separated into 2 groups to make it more exciting for the kids, so mom+son vs dad+daughter. (So we bought 2 coupons). The kids really got into it and loved it. We got through it in about 3 hrs on a beautiful spring day. Walked 10km all in all without any kid complaining!! Some of the hints/questions were a bit confusing so we just skipped those. I had some technical difficulty to set it up on the cell phones after the Groupon purchase but I called the scavenger hunt support number and they were very helpful.

    Ottawa! I hesitated between a 3 * but I give a 4 * because I think it’s a great idea as a treasure hunt when you know the city. If you have to respect a schedule I would tell you to leave rather to find a parking. Parking meters run at 2 o’clock for $ 6 and you must come back to get another coupon to add to the car.
    Difficult to find the starting point. The site only gives an address. In a city that we do not know, it is very difficult to orient ourselves then in one hour, we did that the 1/4 of the hunt. I imagine that would be very interesting in a city we know, to teach children history. must actually have a good battery on his cell phone, water, and snacks. In short, maybe we will do it in Montreal …
