The Marco Polo Expedition -
City-Wide Hunt Adventure

The Marco Polo Expedition – City-Wide Hunt Adventure is a city-wide scavenger hunt contained all within the city limits of your local city. There are six mini missions to take on requiring you to seek out specific places and objects within your city and complete specific tasks.

But that’s just the beginning…

Once you complete a mini-mission, you’ll be able to open one of the six Marco Polo Expedition story envelopes - an elaborate, puzzle filled Choose Your Own Path adventure based on the ancient travels of Marco Polo - leading you to find some of his jeweled treasure. It’s a full puzzle adventure contained INSIDE of a city-wide scavenger hunt.

There’s so much to do with the Marco Polo Expedition – City-Wide Hunt Adventure that it can either fill an entire day or you can break up the fun into different ‘episodes’ completing different missions on different days. Simply pick up the story where you left off.

PLEASE NOTE: We currently have THREE different versions of our Marco Polo Expedition Adventure to best provide for the type of activity you’re looking for:

Adaptable City-Area Adventure: (The version you’re viewing now) This version is NOT specific to any one city (see below for city specific versions.) The locations to search out are not city-specific so this is a great option for those who’d like to take on the adventure but do not live near one of the 250+ adaptations we’ve already created.


Specific City-Wide Adventures: We’ve adapted the Marco Polo Expedition Adventure to work with over 250 different major US cities (see our Etsy store for the full collection. (See below for our list of over 250 US cities to choose from)

Marco Polo Adventure Hunt: This version eliminates the city-wide scavenger hunt portion and converts the Marco Polo story adventure into an actual treasure hunt (think National Treasure.) Instructions are provided to allow you to hide the story envelopes throughout your city/school/home/anywhere so that your participant(s) will travel from location to location to continue their story.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Q: Is this for adults or children?

A: We set out to create a treasure hunt adventure that was sophisticated enough for young teens through adults to enjoy. There are several fun treasure hunts out there that children can have fun with, but we thought it was about time for teens and adults to have something designed just or them.

2. Q: How does The Marco Polo Adventure arrive?

A: You’ll receive a large envelope with everything you need contained inside – simple instructions, a few pages of mini-missions and six story envelopes. Nothing to set up – simply open and go.

3. Q: How long will it last?

A: A great many factors can contribute to this answer. If one were ONLY completing the story envelopes (without ever taking on the city missions, as example only) on average, we’ve found that if one takes the puzzles inside the story seriously there is approximately 60-80 minutes worth of fun. The bulk of the time will be spent as you travel throughout the city completing the mini-missions. No mission will require you to leave the city boundaries. The amount of time it will take to complete would depend on how well you know the city, driving speed, ability to search and intensity with which you take on the missions. At bare minimum, to complete every mini-mission will take several hours. This is why we’ve broken the adventure down into story segments and mini-missions so that you can get more out the adventure than a single day of fun.

4. Q: Can more than one person participate?

A: The Marco Polo Expedition – City-Wide Hunt Adventure was designed with a single ‘team’ in mind. Since there is only one set of instructions and materials, whoever is taking on the adventure needs to stick together during the activity. However, that doesn’t mean that it has to the SAME group of participants each time (in the event you break up the adventure into different days.)

5. Q: How Covid-friendly is it?

A: We live in a very dynamic time. Although some interaction with others might make it more fun, every mission can be completed successfully without breaking any social distancing.
