In teams of eight people, participants explore the city’s hidden gems on a scavenger hunt adventure, with prizes awarded to the winning team. With a new clue sheet in hand, teams traverse San Diego’s downtown, discovering its secret spots and special access areas. In the two-hour and 45-minute tour, scavengers will walk 2–3 miles, and discover just a few of the city’s rooftop lounges, hotels, and scenic spots.

Adventures depart on most Saturdays at 10 a.m. or 3 p.m. from the Gaslamp Quarter. Click here for the most up-to-date schedule.

Where You Want to Be Tours

Launched as a walking-tour company in 2003, Where You Want to Be Tours features a variety of custom adventures designed to show off the beauty of San Diego to locals and tourists. Most adventures last more than two hours, so tourists have plenty of time to stop and sightsee at spots such as Balboa Park and the shores of La Jolla. Today, the company has formed a set of all new clues and hidden gems and has also expanded its offerings with bike tours of locations such as Pacific Beach and Mission Bay and scavenger hunt adventures, which present a hands-on approach to urban exploration, turning tour routes into racecourses and throwing in physical challenges, including Frisbee-throwing contests.

Hi there! Yes, if people showed interest in other areas, we would definitely do it as we have more than a dozen different locations. For this latest Groupon deal, we did offer Pacific Beach in addition to Downtown San Diego. Happy Holidays!!!
