    The great things our great customers say about us.

    London Treasure Hunt

    Great trail, genuinely quite hard, much easier after the first pint break!

    London Treasure Hunt

    Really fun and interesting adventure, we saw parts of London we’d never have seen without this trail. The vast majority of the riddles were fun and largely easy to follow, with only a couple being a little too vague to work out without hints. Over...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Amazing game! It was so fun and interesting to see these places from a different angle. We were a team of 5 split into 2 groups (to add a bit of challenge) and each team received the clues, which made it easier to compete against each other. We wi...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Exciting adventure, difficult and creative, mind blowing cues, fun attractions.

    London Treasure Hunt

    We really enjoyed the experience. A wonderful way to discover hidden parts of London.

    London Treasure Hunt

    It was great fun! I think the experience could benefit from the first question being an example. Once you know what’s happening, you are on a roll. Looking forward to another one.

    London Treasure Hunt

    Really enjoyed completing this hunt with my son and girlfriend. They live in London but hadn't noticed lots of the things we saw. Clues were tricky but not too difficult which made it fun. We stopped and had lunch in the lovely tavern mid trail w...

    London Treasure Hunt

    It was great to discover some parts of the City I hadn't seen before. Went as a family with 2 teens and a dog! Some really lovely little gardens hidden away. Clues weren't too hard.. Only 2 that confused us. Great afternoon. Exhausted by all the w...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Great experience, nice sightseeing and challenging puzzles.

    London Treasure Hunt

    We loved this treasure hunt. Not too difficult yet challenging enough for 2 adults and teens. We saw places in London that we never knew existed. It was great despite the rain. Quite a lot of walking though

    London Treasure Hunt

    What a great day out! Good to get the brain engaged and see some things that you normally wouldn’t when in london. Love the addition of the pub stops along the way (that first one was needed) My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Needed a bit o...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Really enjoyed the walk. Saw places I’ve never seen before even though I have walked around London many times.

    London Treasure Hunt

    We leisurely did the Secret City trail and it was so much fun. The clues were not too hard to become frustrating and not too easy that we didn't have to think about it. Sometime the punctuation in the text caused confusion for directions we shou...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Great fun for the whole family. You can make it as competitive as you'd like, or just stroll from point to point enjoying unique parts of London along the way.

    London Treasure Hunt

    Great way to explore the city. I have lived and worked in London for 30+ years and pride myself on knowing the hidden side, but this took me to many a place I have never been. Pitched just right; challenging yet achievable especially after a few r...

    London Treasure Hunt

    We had such a great time, saw so many hidden areas, we were delighted that some of the clues were really difficult and some were more straightforward, giving a great sense of pace to our day, and I reckon if you went as a family it would be great ...

    We enjoyed the game. We were just a bit annoyed by the 90 minutes penalty as there was probably a communication issue. Anyway, the whole experience was really nice!

    We enjoyed visiting some lovely places we had never come across before. It kept the kids engaged whilst getting a good walk.

    London Treasure Hunt

    A great experience. A great way to see little bits of the city you don't always see as more of a "local" some of the clues were a little tough, and when you start it's a little difficult to know what to expect.One recommendation--always look up!W...

    London Treasure Hunt

    London Treasure Hunt

    Was apprehensive, but thoroughly impressed. Really really well made, and we had a cracking day. We had two teams of 6 people racing to the end, and we had such a laugh. Highly recommended, and very well priced. Definitely would do another one of t...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Really fun way to spend an afternoon. Thought I knew this part of London well, but I was wrong! The included stops were a great idea too and much appreciated.

    London Treasure Hunt

    Really enjoyed the Secret City mystery tour going to places I’d never been before and noticing things I’ve previously walked past! The clues were suitably difficult so you have to use your brain and think laterally! Fortunately it stayed dry as r...

    London Treasure Hunt

    Great idea for a family day in London getting to see parts of the City that you might walk past on a daily basis but never actually take notice of .... we will be booking another tour soon!

    London Treasure Hunt

    We had a great time but was a lot further than we thought! We would have liked the option of a longer break as we had some older people with us who needed a bigger break than 30 minutes.And also to end at a famous landmark rather than a busy road...
