Fun Ice Breakers

Let’s be honest. Mention the word “ice breakers” and for some people, they instantly conjure up thoughts of hokey games and scary trust falls. But that’s not our style. Our time-tested Ice Breaker games are not only fun, they’ll get your team talking, laughing and sharing stories with each other in a memorable way.

Creative Ice breakers can be used several ways – from kicking off your conference to using it at the end of the day, to energize your team from a long day of meetings. The possibilities are endless! 

Over the years, we’ve executed many ice breakers but here are some of our favorites:

Have You Ever?  This is a fun, interactive game that works for groups who don’t know each other, as well as groups who work closely together. Great activity that’s easy to do and instantly puts people at ease. Takeaway: Participants will learn unique things about each other.

All Together Now: Through a series of questions led by our trained facilitator, this activity is designed to get people out of their chairs, moving around and talking to each other. Takeaway: Finding something in common fosters communication, team spirit and unity

Pay it Forward: This is a crowd pleaser! In today’s busy world, we sometimes forget to compliment or even say thanks to those who help us. Led by a trained facilitator, this is a feel-good activity that allows participants to express their gratitude in a unique way.   

What do you see? In this timed activity, participants will be paired off, sitting back to back. Our facilitator will then show a picture to one of the participants, who will then describe the photo to the other person who must now guess what the photo is.  This activity tests communication and listening skills, and the ability to stay calm under pressure.

All ice breakers can be tailored to fit your needs.

    Marc’s excellent leadership in helping organize a tour to help emphasize customer service skills through Where You Want to Be Tours was just the ticket for our staff looking for a alternative fun atmosphere to learn and enjoy the value of good customer service. I have known and worked with both Marc and Darlynne for many years and always found their enthusiasm for San Diego refreshing and inspiring. Most importantly our staff did too as evidence by the great evaluations we received from our time spent together!

    Joan, CEO, OFFICE DYNAMICS, LTD.

    Thank you so much for an outstanding event. The photo album and CDs arrived. The pictures look great “

    Brian H, SAN DIEGO CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU

    Marc is someone I always enjoy doing business with. He approaches work as something that can be fun, which makes him a natural tour professional. I am a lifelong San Diegan and Marc opened my eyes through his great programs to aspects of my hometown I never knew existed.”

    John D, San Diego AD Club

    I have worked with Marc in several capacities. All turned out to be profitable experiences and provided high, quality marketing and Public Relations exposure for me. Marc and his wife Darlynne participate in a radio and television program that we conducted from Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu. Their accurate and exciting reports from the Resort created business for us as well as media impressions that are directly attributable to our relationship. I have also participated in and had my employees and coworkers participate in their San Diego Scavenger Hunts. They are great team building exercises, but for me I wanted to learn more about the neighborhoods that I was selling products in. I had my team do them to learn about the businesses in the tour areas and also for our Editorial team to learn about the current situation and past histories of the neighborhoods. I highly recommend both Marc and Darylene in any professional capacity. They are truly qualified people and as a bonus amongst the most pleasant people I have ever worked with.

    Once again your team did an amazing job and our participants loved it.”

    Mimi Thompson, VISION MAGAZINE

    How does this sound: the sun is beginning to set, the air is fresh and cool, and you can casually stroll with a small group and enjoy finding things hidden from every day view. It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon relaxing and moving around, and also a great way to entertain visitors with a tourist event that all will enjoy. The walks are designed to fit the aerobic abilities of all, they are easy jaunts on level ground but you will be surprised at the end how far you have managed to easily walk. This is a great way to spend a few hours meeting new people, visiting new places and falling in love with San Diego all over again.“

    Amber B, UCSD

    Thank you so much for everything!! The staff loved it and it was just what we needed to kick off the year! You two have been fantastic to work with and I hope we can work together again soon!!!”

    Bay H, Meeting Planner

    Darlynne is exacty what San Diego needs. She is a wonderful ambassador for the city and the region. Her work at Where You Want To Be Tours showcases the very best of what San Diego has to offer and she does it with class and professionalism.”

    Jan, McLANE RIEGER COMMUNICATIONS

    Marc and Darlynne Menkin started Where You Want to Be Tours several years ago, and their business has just blossomed! I’ve used them on many occasions, to take clients and colleagues on tours and scavenger hunts. They know San Diego inside out, and love sharing their secret spots, whether on foot or on a double decker bus. They drop the K and keep the F….U….N!”
