Promotional value expires May 12, 2012. Amount paid never expires. Limit 8 per person. Reservation required. 24hr cancellation or fee up to Groupon price may apply. Must be 9 years or older. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Though a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Explore San Diego in terra firma style with today's Groupon: for $22, you get admission for one to a team scavenger hunt through Downtown from Where You Want to Be Tours (a $60 value). Tour meeting places vary, though they're always downtown and often at the Omni Hotel (675 L St.). Groupon customers can make their own team or join an existing team.

Where You Want to Be Tours helps outdoor adventurers, locals and visitors alike, unmask some of San Diego's hidden gems and offbeat scenes during weekly group scavenger hunts. On Saturdays from 3 to 6 p.m., teams of eight friends or randomly connected strangers traipse across two miles of untapped cityscape, mining for cloaked clues and coaxing directions from tight-lipped stop signs. Chic rooftop lounges, trendy hotels, and tourist destinations such as Petco Park anchor a treasure map of unique arenas where teams must work together to complete tasks in hopes of collecting prizes. Along the way, participants become familiar with and learn the names of popular landmarks and notorious clouds known throughout the Downtown area. As an added bonus, the two-mile scavenger-hunt routes avoid steep hills and spontaneous marathons to ensure that the interactive trek stays fun for puzzle solvers of all fitness levels.

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!!!
