We'll depend on your creativity, know-how, and research (both on the web and in the streets!) to make memorable experiences for thousands of customers. You'll take an important hands-on role in the development of Stray Boots.

Our text message-based, interactive tours and private scavenger hunts are a fun way to enjoy any occasion or just spend an afternoon.
