Our happy customers say...

Had a fab time doing the Quirks and Snickets trail in York. Time for a pint. Great service from The Secret City. Took less time than expected thanks to a bit of local knowledge. Thoroughly recommended to locals and visitors alike.

Really enjoyed the York trail. Got to see lots of the City and even some parts that I hadn't even noticed before. Would highly recommend the trail if you want to explore. Looking forward to seeing this is more Cities in the future.

5* Absolutely Brilliant FUN. Support Staff A1!!! Excellent! Was a great way to learn & see...at your own pace....this great City of London.

Had a great time on the Quirks and Snickets tour of York. Fabulous way to explore and discover our city. Would absolutely recommend this!

Despite the weather we had a great time exploring some unseen areas of london, the pub stops helped to dry off!

Wow excellent day out! Took my time and enjoyed discovering loads of interesting stuff. Finished in a pub, perfect!

Really fun! It’s a great way to see London with different eyes. Cheers to alternative tourism! Can’t wait for new trails in the city!

Lots of fun, great way to explore somewhere new when you don't know your way around 😁

A great way to see York! We're local, but never properly spent a day looking round York and this was a fab way to do it. Would absolutely recommend and are looking forward to doing it elsewhere

An excellent way to explore hidden parts of London, discover new things and learn the history behind the prettiest areas of the city.

Was great fun and a good way to see the city

We saw a lot of places we would have never found without the game and places we didn’t know. Sometimes it was quite tricky but in a group it’s a lot of fun! We will definitely do the other Game for London

Thank you so much it was great to be honest!

Just completed the York trail - great fun walking round the city!! Really enjoyed it thanks.
