Urban Capers Scavenger Hunts combine art and history with clever questions, all set in beautiful cultural locations. We operate around historic neighbourhoods like the St. Lawrence neighbourhood and Kensington Market, and at cultural destinations such as the Royal Ontario Museum and Distillery District. You are not collecting items, but rather answers to tricky and humorous trivia questions, all while exploring some of the city’s fascinating corners.
