What our clients are saying
“The hunt was great. It is the perfect party for adventurous, curious kids of all ages.” —Cynthia Rowley, fashion designer
“I can’t begin to tell you how much our staff enjoyed the hunt last week, especially since we work in the Union Square neighborhood. We really became aware of the many details, and history, that until recently we had overlooked. The activity was unlike others we’ve had in the past, and it engaged everyone’s participation—the perfect out-of-the-box team-building exercise! Brian was the perfect host, infusing the right amount of energy and enthusiasm every step of the way. We had a great time.”
“IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! Seriously, the BEST event we've had with this group—and one of the best events I've ever held. Yeah, I'll be talking you up with some of my other groups! Mitchell was PHENOMENAL! And Kristi was fantastic. My staff was still talking about how great it was this afternoon. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”
“We all truly had a fantastic hunt! Shannon [the Hunt Host] and her assistant were pros. It felt like a highly organized, top-notch adventure.”
“We had a blast. I received nothing but rave reviews for the event: ‘This is the best off-site I’ve ever been to,’ etc. The activity was beyond any expectation I had. We loved the questions, and what a great environment [the American Museum of Natural History] to have a scavenger hunt. Ophira [the Hunt Host] was great: she handled the one extremely late team member with ease. Should the situation arise, I’ll highly recommend Watson Adventures to anyone looking for ideas for team building or a party.”
“Thank you for executing a great hunt! We had a fabulous time—we are still talking about it! It was great to work with you, and I certainly look forward to working with you again in the future.” —Kristin Beebe, special events manager, O, The Oprah Magazine. (We created a citywide limousine hunt for the O ad-sales team, in which every question related to the magazine, Oprah Winfrey, or the magazine’s sales goals.)
“Thanks for the energy and creativity you put into our hunt at the Met—incredibly original....I loved your witty questions and racing through the museum. Everyone was thrilled. You have 50 new Watson Adventures groupies.” —Jeff Bezos, founder & CEO
“It was definitely a real pleasure working with you! You put up with our changes and hefty requests so professionally and creatively, and were a real partner in making this portion of our conference a complete success. I've heard nothing but great feedback from the team on the hunt, and the executives were buzzing about the challenges the whole next day. Thank you for adding such an important and FUN component to our conference!”
“Our agency had a great day yesterday doing the Secrets of Old Boston Hunt. Most of the staff had never participated in a professionally facilitated hunt before, so it was a new experience for the majority. The staff thought it was fun: the questions were tricky and made us look at Boston in a whole new way.”
“We found Watson Adventures to be a tremendous partner. From concept to execution, they worked with us in developing a smart, strategically aligned team-building initiative. Equally importantly, their follow-through, attention to detail, and implementation was flawless. We would strongly recommend them to any group or company looking to enhance their inter-team collaboration and effectiveness.” —John Partilla, president
