Trevor Day School students

As guests of the Trevor Day School, located just off Central Park West, the students especially loved the opportunity to successfully navigate the city with limited English, and, in the case of two of the five teams, without adult supervision. "Most Exciting. We put all our energy into it!"

Miléva Pierre Nicolas, Marie Xavier (winning team members)

"This experience was very instructive and very interesting...It permitted us to explore New York from several points of view."

Marilys Villacampa, Sarah Kocis, Stephanie Claverie, Carole Amoros

Unique NY
Scavenger Hunt Tour

The fun of competition is one of the unique qualities of scavenger hunts, along with exploring and discovering new places with friends or colleagues. It's a perfect way to bond members of a team (be it corporate, scholastic, sports, etc.) Prizes need not be elaborate or expensive. A popular prize is a miniature replica of a NYC yellow taxi cab, (with moving wheels, and doors that open and close.) one for each winning team member.

How it Works:

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 to find an object and to answer NYC-related questions. The quest can only be completed by visiting Manhattan'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.

The fee for our Scavenger Hunt Tour starts at $50 per person for groups of 15 people, and lowers with the number of people in the group. (This does not include the cost of prizes for the winning team members, should you wish Unique NY Tours to purchase them.) Our Scavenger Hunt Tour is a full day, from *9:00am to 6:30pm, and it covers all of the major landmarks and famous areas of Manhattan. The tour is suitable for ages 12 and up, tour members safely travelling in groups.

* An additional fee is required for Scavenger Hunts tailored to a client request for shorter lengths or specific site visits.
