Didn't finish the treasure hunt due to the fact we had a 9yr old girl that wanted to go around all the shops, but we managed to do about half the hunt and really enjoyed it. The questions are not too easy to solve so it really gets you thinking and the hidden history that you would normally walk straight past makes the visit more interesting. Definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys solving quizzes and sight seeing

What a hit! A humorous and informative city tour to pretty corners of the city, just really long and with just really tricky puzzles, and also pleasantly flexible: you can start and pause whenever you want. Only the treasure at the end is missing - maybe an agreement could be reached with the great local fudge production? Many thanks to the guys who came up with the treasure hunt!

Concerned about weather but the rain stopped & we were able to venture out on our treasure hunt. All info was given and explained thoroughly. We followed the guide lines and clues and had an enjoyable afternoon learning all about Chester. An enjoyable time was had by all and we recommend this hunt as a way to learn the history of this beautiful place of Chester.

Loved this! Booked with some friends thinking it would be a different way to explore Chester, it was so much fun. Such a good idea we will definitely be doing more in different locations. Just make sure your phones are fully charged as ours died with seconds to spare! However I think that added to our experience running round like we was on Challenge Anneka

Enjoyable afternoon finding the clues and seeing the sights of Chester.
