“Thanks! Everyone said they had a great time and really enjoyed the mix of questions. One person mentioned that it was the first time he had ever been on a scavenger hunt and he thought it was a great idea. We split the teams up to ensure no internal hires were on the same team and split up the international associates and they said they were so happy with how well they worked together.”

Review: This was a blast from start to finish. Eric was extremely upbeat and provided an atmosphere of fun and good-natured bantering. We had no idea what to expect....it was much fun and would recommend it to groups of any size. We had approx. 25 people, cut into teams, and are still displaying our trophies and blue ribbons. Do it - you won't regret it.


Hey Eric!

 Super day in Boston! Kids LOVED it, thanks so much.

Hello Eric,
Yesterday's Scavenger hunt was a big hit, so much so that people are interested in a bit more information about how the teams stacked up etc. 
As I mentioned yesterday was a great day and we've gotten a lot of positive feedback about the experience and people were happy with the experience!
Thank you for helping us facilitate a fun teambuilding day, I'm sure we'll continue to remember the scavenger hunt for months & years to come.

Thank you,

"Fantastic job, by you and Boston Adventures. I’d never taken part in a scavenger hunt before, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was a BLAST! Fun, exciting, and occasionally silly…I’d love to do one of these every year! Thanks for making it happen!"

Hi Eric,

 Thank you for a wonderful day yesterday! The entire group had such a great time and people are still talking about their experiences. I have to say, the hunt certainly allowed us to explore Boston in depth and really get to work with one another collectively and increase our teambuilding skills. Thank you for the great organization of the event. We look forward to seeing the pictures!

I received the pictures! They're great...thank you. We have put them on our Corporate Real Estate server for everyone to see. Everyone I have spoken to enjoyed the day very much! We spent a lot of time looking at each others pictures that were taken with the cameras from your company and enjoyed many laughs. Again, thank you for a great Scavenger Hunt thru Boston.

Hi Eric,

I was out yesterday so I am just getting your email today. Everyone had a great time! Our "best teambuilding event yet" I was told by many. Thanks so much for organizing it. You did a great job. I just received the pictures from our event. Thanks so much for sending them. They are great. We all just sat around looking at them and the big guys couldn't say enough about you and Boston Adventures. I'm sure we'll be planning something real soon.

Dear Boston Adventures,

Everyone here at ADQSR (Dunkin Donuts) had a blast during our scavenger hunt!! It was a good way to incorporate team building while having tons of fun. It was nice that you incorporated so many DD specific items on our list! If only we found more VW Bugs!! Yes, we are a competitive crew ... but it's all in good fun. I would definitely recommend this event to other departments and/or companies as a unique and fun experience and I know that my colleagues would as well! It was a tremendous day had by all!

Thanks for everything and I can't wait to see those lovely candids you snapped!!

Dear Eric,

I would like to compliment you and your staff on running the Pepsi-Cola Company Outing/Scavenger Hunt
for us. It was a great experience. We couldn't have been more pleased with your suggestions, professionalism or the
complete outcome. The entire staff was helpful, knowledgeable and very courteous. I would recommend that type of venue and Boston Adventures, to anyone.

Again, thanks for your time and enthusiasm!

Dear Eric:

I wanted to write to thank you for putting together such a wonderful team building experience. A limousine scavenger hunt through the streets and sights of Boston was really a blast. It was nice to get to interact with fellow employees that one might not get a chance to deal with during the course of the working day, except to pass in the hallways or see in the line at the cafeteria. Not only did it bring out the spirit of competition in all of us, but gave each team a sense of camaraderie. (By the way, we can't wait until the next scavenger hunt because we want revenge on TEAM 4!!!)

The limousine drivers seemed to have as much fun as we did, even while trying to navigate all those one way streets near the State Capitol Building. Your limousine staff was very informative, courteous and above all, patient as we scurried around Boston to collect the items on the team list. I'm still trying to give away those 4 cans of SPAM...Finishing the Scavenger Hunt at Houlihan's Restaurant in Faneuil Hall with an awards ceremony/lunch was the perfect ending to a wonderful event and day.

I highly recommend your Boston Scavenger Hunt to anyone that is looking for a group outing, whether it is via limousine or by foot, because it is an outstanding team building Function!

Sincerely Yours,
Annie

Dear Boston Adventures,

On behalf of my colleagues at American Airlines I wanted to thank you for providing us such a wonderful adventure. Not only was this a team building exercise it was an opportunity for each of us to truly enjoy not only each others company but the city of Boston's wonderful attractions.

As we started out with our cameras and scavenger lists in hand we embarked on a journey of fun and excitement. From Cheers to Faneuil Hall, from the Hancock to the Boston Common each of us had a fantastic time. The photographs that we took at the site of the Boston massacre, in the Volkswagen Beetle and driving a Boston Cab will be a lasting memory of our day. We hope that you enjoyed yourself as much as we did.

We really appreciate your extension of kindness to us here at American!

Thank you Eric.

Eric,

Everyone had a great time! The biggest question I got was "How are you going to top this event for the next meeting?"

Thanks for all of your help and hard work.

Dear Eric,

Who would have thought that someone could have fun tromping around Boston in record breaking temperatures, talking to complete strangers, and taking the oddest pictures?! Our Boston office is still talking about how they did exactly that and the fun that was had by all.

Given the number of international employees we have (who have never experienced this kind of activity), our scavenger hunt was a unique and wonderful way to learn more about their adopted city, spend time with each other team building, acting a little silly, and having a really great dinner.

Eric, your knowledge of the City, your sense of humor, and attention to detail and organization made the IntraLinks Scavenger Hunt in Boston an event to remember. Thank you very much for a day no one will ever forget.

With best regards,

Rhona

Eric,

An awesome time for all of us, even those of us that ran around and forgot Christine & the limo! The girls raved about the adventure as did the mom's... an excellent experience.

Thanks for all of your contact with me and for arranging the lunch reservations at Bertucci's. Our stay in the Boston area was wonderful with friendly helpful people every where we went. (I especially liked the real pastries at Mike's Bakery. We don't get real bakery items to often down here in Virginia.)

Thanks again,

The feedback I received from Carol Love was "outstanding"

... you took care of their transportation needs... with great dispatch... As their "Personal Tour Guide"... for the ride in from the airport... you added that "extra" that means so much...

... Our employees can still not stop talking about the fun they had on the Boston Adventures Scavenger hunt! It's the perfect summer outing event and a great way to facilitate teambuilding. We've decorated our game room with items collected on the hunt and are making a collage of all the pictures! Thanks Boston Adventures and Eric for planning a great day!!!

... We just wanted to thank each and every one of you for your splendid services. The conference went on without a glitch and it was all due to the wonderful services and staff that participated in coordinating the event.

The food and catering services were wonderful, the computer equipment was up and running without any glitches, the rooms were prepared and stylishly set-up, transportation was on time and pleasingly accommodating to our guest and the events planned for the evenings were amazing. We would not have made such an outstanding impression on our visitors without your support. So we would like to take this moment to thank you for making us (Northeastern University) look good and portraying a sense of easiness when we know that in fact, it was not...

Thank you so much for your great preparation, enthusiasm and creativity with the NYC Scavenger Hunt. I personally had a fabulous time and have received great feedback from the Team. Specifically, the diversity of your clues, different levels of difficultness, embedded trivia and fun things to get pictures of resulted in a great time for all.

Also, I appreciate all the back and forth prior to the event and your preparedness on the morning of the scavenger hunt.

I definitely hope to work with you again in the future and will pass your name on to others.

Best wishes, Devika
