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!

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