Team building activities help to bring together colleagues, co-workers, and new hires into situations they will not typically experience, where they must collaborate and combine collective strengths to achieve a pre-determined goal.

History & Art Scavenger Hunt is an interactive team building event that involves working in teams to explore a neighborhood, find clues, and learn about both the area and friends/colleagues.

Food Tour Guide will be on hand to teach you about the neighborhood, and to help proctor the event.

During the Scavenger Hunt, teams must depend on each other and work together to complete puzzles, which will lead to great samplings of food or drink at fantastic local restaurants.

  • Trivia is a great way to keep ones brain sharp and learn about the world.
  • It is also a great team building activity for a corporate groups.
  • We will use Trivia Apps for iPhone & Android.


One of my favorite team-building exercises is simply called “people trivia.” The name says it all: it’s trivia about the people in your organization and it provides the perfect opportunity to learn more about your fellow co-workers. Ask people to share something about themselves that most people at work don’t know on a piece of paper at the beginning of the tour.  Then during the tour, put this info into a quiz-form and have your guest guess who is this person, i.e. who is a avid skydiver.

People Trivia Team-Building Questions:

Some example questions that can help you strengthen relationships include:

  • What do you want to be when you grow up?
  • What is one thing your co-workers wouldn’t normally know about you?
  • What was your most memorable moment of high school (or college)?
  • What is one story that you used to feel embarrassed about but can laugh about now?
  • What is something you are very proud of?

You can ask everyone the same questions or switch it up for different people–the key is that you are learning about each other as people, not just co-workers. You’ll be learning about each other, having fun, and building an effective team.

"A great way to break free from a business trip!"
We booked the food tour for about 15 of us and had a great time. Downtown Carlsbad is a cute little surfing village with lots of history, restaurants, and shops. Everyone had a great time and there was truly something for every appetite!
