AWOL Tours prides itself in providing customised tours, so when a Mom called to ask if we can organise a kids bicycle birthday party, we of course jumped to the challenge to create a perfect bicycle adventure for Luke.
A few days later after consulting my creative friend, Wendy from ‘Make.Believe’ we came up with the concept of a ‘ Bicycle Treasure hunt’. Luke’s mom loved the proposal for her sons 7th bike birthday party and booked.
Included in the personalised ‘treasure map’ were 7 secret clues to the hidden treasures. Among the treasures found was a bag of whistles with instructions to whistle the tune of “The wheels of the bike go round & round”. The final activity of the treasure hunt was to build a tepee with sticks and forest foliage and all the participants were rewarded with a ‘red indian party hat’.
Our guides Mark and Jeremy have a natural flair with children and added a great deal of excitement on the day to facilitate the finding of treasures and performing the relevant activities.
Since then we have had a number of variations on the Bike treasure hunt team. Next up, AWOL Tours is organizing a Batman treasure hunt in the Kalk bay caves and an overnight sleepover in the Overseers cottage on Table Mountain.
AWOL Tours has a commercial operating permit to host hiking and cycling tours and we are bursting with ideas for Adventurous kids birthday parties all over Cape Town.
