I came across this by accident as all the activities we had planned were fully booked. However we had a great time following the clues, despite the rain, and we got to see parts of the city we would have missed if left to our own devices. It’s a shame you can’t reread the clues and information after finishing as we were so intent on moving to next clue that we didn’t take in as much information as we should. One or two of the clues were slightly misleading and I don’t think they could be solved without taking a hint but all in all, great entertainment. Will definitely do another on our next city break.

Some of the clues were hard to understand and had to Google maps some places. Wouldn't really recommend doing it in the dark but we managed it. Overall the story was fun and interactive and it took us an hour to do. Would recommend for something to do there.

Absolutely brilliant, getting to explore the city and its landmarks at your own leisure was a pleasure. Can't wait for the next ine
