Looking for a way to turn San Francisco Embarcadero into a giant game board? This interactive scavenger hunt combines the fun of the 'Amazing Race' with a two–and–a–half hour sightseeing tour of San Francisco’s Embarcadero area.  Guided from any smart phone, you will make your way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. Your scavenger hunt route will show you hidden secrets of the Embarcadero area as you walk San Francisco's Bay Trail, tracing the eastern shoreline of the city. The tour requires approximately 1.5 miles of walking. Using a smartphone as the guide allows you to start whenever you would like, and determine your own pace of play. Stop to enjoy the ocean views, grab an ice cream or enjoy lunch at the Pier. Why not? It’s your schedule.
