A. Participants are divided into teams and armed with public transportation passes, maps, clue lists, explicit traveling directions, and an emergency cell phone number (manned by a Unique NY Tours staff member). The teams are sent off in different directions in historic downtown Manhattan to find an object and to answer NYC-related questions. The quest can only be completed by visiting downtown NYC’s major sightseeing locations and attractions. Bathroom locations, snack stops, and photo opportunities are included in the clue list/travel direction folders.
B. The first team that returns to the designated finish location at the specified time and with the most correctly answered questions and found object is the winner. Its members receive NYC-related prizes. Organizers also have the option of embellishing prizes — adding certificates, cash awards, savings bonds, etc.
C. The fee for our Unique NY Tours Downtown Scavenger Hunt Tour is $50 per person (includes meal). For self-contained groups, the fee lowers based on the number of people in the group. The Unique NY Downtown Scavenger Hunt Tour is a 2-hour walking tour during the hours from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm*. It covers all the major landmarks and famous areas of Lower Manhattan. The tour is suitable for ages 12 and up, with tour members safely traveling in groups.
*Self-contained Groups of 15 or more can request specific Hunt start times.
