Three great experiences, one amazing day
Get three big slices of the New York experience in under six hours. You’ll start with a scavenger hunt that reveals the secrets of Chinatown and Little Italy, then break for a pizza lunch in Little Italy, and finish with a shopping expedition in SoHo. Fill your eyes, your belly, and your shopping bag in one great downtown NYC adventure.
Part 1: The hunt for lost New York
First up: a 90-minute scavenger hunt. You’ll see the best of Chinatown and Little Italy as you break into teams to tackle clues and answer tricky, humorous questions about the sights and secrets you uncover. Highlights include former gangster haunts, twisty blocks that hosted bygone tong wars, shops where you can get delicious snacks, TV and movie locations, and more. No previous knowledge is required to win; you just need sharp eyes and comfy shoes. Our Hunt Host will greet you at the start, meet you along the way for a surprise challenge, and greet you at the finish line to crown the winner.
Part 2: A SoHo walking tour with shopping ninjas
For the afternoon shopping tour, we’ll hand you over to the entertaining experts of Shop Gotham, New York’s top shopping tour guides. In chic, stylish SoHo, indie designers, pop-up shops, and new brands continue to thrill shoppers. The emphasis is on “only in NYC” shopping (no mall stores for you!), so you’ll go home with a little NYC in your bags. Some of the stores offer modest discounts to hunt participants. Along the way, your fashion-savvy guides will update you on the latest trends, point out some of Manhattan’s most exquisite cast-iron architecture, and share other local history and trivia.
This combo adventure is available for $75 per person, with a minimum of 15 people and a maximum of 20. It’s suitable for ages 14 and up.
