“Active, challenging and so much FUN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

The Amazing Race Santa Monica is such a great way to explore and enjoy the west side. Bob is an exuberant and hilarious host who really wants everyone to succeed and have a great time doing it. The clues are hard, but not impossible, and you get a lot of exercise as you're tracking them down here, there, and everywhere! By the end, you're ready for it to be over, but you also can't wait to try another race. Wear workout clothes and shoes and bring your own snacks and hydration...enjoy with friends, family, or anyone who enjoys a little healthy competition!

“Lives up to the "Amazing" part of the title”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Truely is an amazing race. Bob, our race advisor, was fantastic and very informative. He took the race to a different level. The race itself was difficult, frustrating, challenging, and....so incredibly FUN!!! I would do it again in a heartbeat should I find the chance, and recommend it to anyone in an area near enough to participate. Can't wait until they expand to my region! Thanks so much, made an awesome last day in L.A.!

“The Race was a fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

This was an excellent birthday gift! It was a great way to spend the day with friends and experience Santa Monica in a way that wasn't just the usual slow move through the mall or one tourist spot. Bob was a great host.

“Fantastic Family Outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

My three daughters (21,23,24) participated in this event last weekend. We had a blast and will definitely try it again. It was well organized, clever and fun! There were 7 teams and the ages of the participants ranged from 17 to mid fifties. Some of the teams even wore matching t-shirts. A really great time!

“Great for those who want to be "Active Tourists"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2011

My wife and I are the type of people that like to relax through actively experiencing things. The Amazing Santa Monica Race was perfect for that. You use your mind and body (it's not too physically demanding at all, so don't fear that) to solve clues and explore Santa Monica. Bob is a great host and it was so much fun, especially for the fact that my wife and I were visiting California for the first time and were looking for fun ways to see the sites. We were in a race with locals from the Santa Monica/Los Angeles area and held our own in the race just fine. This is a unique experience and I would recommend it to anyone.
