The great things our great customers say about us.

York Treasure Hunt

A good activity to do in York that gets you walking around around town and thinking, as well as stopping in a couple of cool old pubs. Would definitely recommend if you're in York for a few days!

York Treasure Hunt

What a great way to spend the day!! The rain was intense which was unfortunate but we continued anyway. It was fun and added a new dimension to the city.

York Treasure Hunt

First half was very enjoyable but then we got stuck and the kids lost interest. Answer was impossible to find. In the whole enjoyable and a lovely idea.

Had a great time as always on this trail, so good to see areas you might not usually come across and see new aspects of our home town :)

York Treasure Hunt

Had a brilliant day, even though we got slightly lost (entirely our own fault for being terrible detectives). Saw loads of new parts of York. Can't wait to do it again in a new place as a tourist.

We have never been to York before so thought something like this would be great to sight see - and it was amazing!! We are now looking at what other ones we can do as we had such a good time!

York Treasure Hunt

What a great day me and my wife had in York on 7th October 2020. The whole setup was easy to do and instructions east to follow. The clues were not too easy but also not too difficult. They led you on a well thought out route around the city and w...

The trail was great fun with clues that were challenging but not too tricky to solve. It was nice to see York from different viewpoints and allowed us time to explore different things along the way whilst still completing the trail. The story that...

York Treasure Hunt

Very well organised and good fun mystery tour . We saw parts of York we didn’t know existed and loved the clues to solve. I can thoroughly recommend. My daughter (aged 12) was absolutely hooked! Go and enjoy yourself!!

York Treasure Hunt

Had such good fun doing this trail yesterday. Came across lots of shops and pubs tucked away from the mainstream. Never had any intention of being the quickest so it took us most of the day. In between the cocktails! Definitely recommend it!

York Treasure Hunt

Really good. Great event

York Treasure Hunt

One of the best ways to see parts of York's history you might not have seen otherwise. We had great fun and it's very rewarding to solve the clues. Some clues are a bit cryptic and some non-native speakers might struggle with the puns etcetera, bu...

York Treasure Hunt

Good fun!

York Treasure Hunt

Brilliant way to explore the city. Great clues & help via WhatsApp. Walking the walls was not possible due to the walls being closed because of ice, but we were still able to complete the hunt. Really fun day & we can't wait to do another one!

York Treasure Hunt

We all had a fantastic and entertaining time following the cryptic clues around the City of York. Not only was it fun but it was also informative. It was good to do at a leisurely pace and to have breaks for refreshments too.

York Treasure Hunt

It was a very nice scevenger hunt. Unfortunately the city walls were closed due to icy weather and therefore we couldn't find the hint there. An other place where we should find a hint was also under construction. Other than that it was really nic...

Very good experience!!Taking you into areas of the city you would not normally visit and see. Great to experience these areas with the history of the tour. Though beware of predictive text when typing answers!!Bazz & Nic

Great way to explore the city of York. Plenty of areas to discover and little bits of history to learn. Awesome afternoon wandering and discovering. 5 stars!

Truly fantastic - Did this today with my husband and it was brilliant. Really felt as if we were in our own version of the Divinci Code or Challenge Aneka. Running around York solving clues sent to my phone. Saw some really unusual parts of the ci...

Clear and fun clues, easy to follow. Took us around all the cool areas of York and taught us about the history too. İt is our 3rd time doing a Secret City trail and we will continue to try the others too! Thanks!
