What people are saying about Dallas

Very suspenseful, insightful and entertaining experience

I reluctantly chose this quest as a non-traditional Valentine's Day outing with my sweetheart of 2+ years. We're very compatible (She's a cancer - I'm a Capricorn), however, we have huge philosophical differences. Because we've been contemplating taking our relationship you the next level I thought the quest would be a good trust building exercise. And - wow - was right! We both are precise, exacting individuals. To successfully complete the challenge, we were forced to work as a team, to frequently relinquish our philosophical opinions, and to trust each other's judgement. Simultaneously, the experience was suspenseful, insightful and lots out fun. She loved it! So whether you're a visitor, a resident looking to get reacquainted with the Arts District (my actual primary purpose), or looking for a rewarding partner/group exercise, then check out theUrban Adventure Quest. Other than a minor registration issue, the proceeds was seamless. Call the tour guide with your questions.

The tour was exciting, entertaining and very informative. We visited all the important points in Dallas and also had the opportunity to get out and take photos. Our guide explained everything to us and we could also ask. The small group size makes it very familiar and you have enough time for photos. I can only recommend this tour to everyone. And for every fan of the Ewings, a visit to the Southfork Ranch is a must. It is a special feeling to be in this house. A really great excursion.

Good fun for the value

The hunt was fun and we saw things that we normally would have never checked out before. It was a bit hot the day we did this quest and at the end we were tired. Overall we enjoyed the quest.
