THATRue is reserved for groups of 12 people or more, unless ordering it as an "extra" to do on your own after a museum hunt.
We built it in 2014 for a 150-person commission (an Illinois high school orchestra), creating three distinct Latin Quarter routes all starting at France’s Senate (within the Jardin du Luxembourg) and ending at Fontaine St Michel. Though you can walk this distance in 20 minutes, one route takes 60 to 90 minutes to do, as you’re tasked with finding treasures such as the Grim Reaper in a verdant garden, Muses in fountains, not to mention the oldest tree in Paris (from 1601!). Our street hunt is flexible, so that you can send 70 hunters, using all 3 routes (as the Dutch Embassy did in 2016) or if your group is smaller or you want your team/party to last longer you can use 2 routes for a whole half-day of Paris competition! We also have 2 routes in the Marais, but this hunt only currently exists in Spanish for our South American market.
Since THATRue is reserved for Corporate Hunts, Hen/Stag/Birthday Parties & School Groups, most THATRues have been customized to make the person of honor feel special! Apart from this we do offer THATRue as a supplement to our Museum Hunts (as seen on those pages), but unfortunately cannot sell it independently.
in Spanish at the moment
after hunting in the garden of 17th C Sully Palace, you’ll wander through the Baroque St Paul and toddle along south of rue de Rivoli till you reach the Renaissance church of St Eustache
apart from parks, passages and fountains, you’ll see the verdant garden of the Carnavalet Museum and search the façade of the Picasso Museum before passing through Archives
LATIN QUARTER ROUTES
in English and Spanish
Wind your way along the Jardin du Luxembourg on over through St Sulpice, eventually
touching on a market street you may just want to return to after your hunt!
Passing the venerable halls of La Sorbonne, dipping into the Medieval museum of the Cluny and onto some skull scouting in the Medical School’s verdant garden
After circling the Panthéon you’ll see some of King Philippe Auguste’s 12th C walls & toddle on down the hill to a Wallace Fountain outside the famous bookstore Shakespeare & Co

HOURS WE RECOMMEND
Depends on your timeline, but we recommend a 10 am start time (to tally scores over lunch) or a 2 pm start time (to tally scores over a drink). We discuss your timeline prior to the hunt, and can offer to make reservations, although can’t offer to pick up the bar bill. If you’re short on time we can tally scores after you’re through and email you results within the hour.
