      All Gone South
      Quite frustrating at times with the clues but fun. Lots of walking and up and down stairs on our chosen experience, which wasn’t great when you have knee issues. With all our hints and getting lost we racked up our time which made us bottom , lol, and we were booked for our next activity quite soon after so I recommend not booking anything close to this as you may need extra time like we did.

      Fun day out to explore London (even if you think you know it inside out!)
      Me and my best friend both were born & grew up in London and the Secret of the Squares treasure hunt gave us an opportunity to explore the city we knew so well in a different way and learn & see new things on the way! London almost felt like a different city during this hunt with how much more we were noticing around us and learning about what we were passing! It was so much fun, and the perfect level of difficulty for brain scratching & enjoyment! We highly recommend!

      An afternoon of clues
      We’ve had such a great time doing this treasure hunt! It took us an hour longer than suggested because we were off course on a few occasions! We’ve seen things we wouldn’t have seen unless we were looking for them…usually walk right by without looking. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see more.

      Fab way to explore and wile away a couple of hours
      The clues were brilliant, we only needed one hint having got lost but we kept moving. It was a great way to explore a new area.

      Very dissapointed
      LONDON FESTIVE LIGHTS FOOD HUNT: I'm afraid not the value we expected for the price we paid: the storyline for the quest wasnt ' hilarious' but daunting, the quest information sent was plain text, the directions weren't clear , the Gourmet food was a stale doughnut and when we got to the other pizza cafe it was closed. The highlight of the trip were the Lights, but these obviously weren't provided by the company. Overall: very overpriced for what we got- you could get similar experience with Treasure Trails for £10 per a group, so - dissapointed..

      100% recommend doing this!!
      This was a really lovely way to explore a city I thought I knew quite well! The treasure hunt makes you look around and really pay attention to details you'd otherwise miss, and it was a completely different way of wandering through London. It's a combination of thinking outside the box and spotting small details, so going with a few people probably works best because you can combine different ways of thinking. There were two of us, and the treasure hunt took us about 1h45 without rushing at any point. The break was planned for exactly the right time so we could re-energise for the second half. We're planning on doing a couple more of these because it's a great way to spend a couple of hours walking around and learning fun facts, and it's a fantastic alternative to classic guided city tours!

      Will be coming back to do another one
      Really enjoyed this treasure hunt. I already know London fairly well but we still discovered new places and learnt new things. The story element added to the experience. Will definitely be doing another one and next time will take advantage of the breaks included. Really liked the fact that they had taken into account there could be other events on and had alternative routes available if your route was blocked for any reason.

      Really enjoyable.
      This is a great way to learn about different areas of London. These trails send you down atmospheric alleyways, to little known landmarks and makes you realise that seemingly unremarkable parts of London are actually really interesting.

      A Fun Way to See the Sights!
      A great way to see the city , learn history and do it at your own pace...built in breaks if you want them..clues were fun and made you think...but not so hard you wanted to give up or get frustrated. Several options in London to choose from based on your interests...their description is spot on in both timing and what to expect

      A great outdoor day out!
      We decided to try out CityDays (formerly The Secret City) after being left with a day in London to explore. Other Tripadvisor reviews and the price convinced us to give it a go and we weren’t left disappointed! We chose ‘The City’ as we thought this adventure would be the best place to start to explore London. It was easy to set up and we both received the instructions to our phones via WhatsApp with no issues. The trail clues were, for us, the perfect level of difficulty. Any easier and there would have been no sense of achievement and the entire experience would have been over very quickly; equally any harder and I think we might have had to use more of our HINT or LOST options! The clever stops at pubs and galleries were very welcome and it was smart that stopping at these places didn’t affect your overall time - you simply message when you’re ready to move on and the timer starts again. It took us 3 hours to complete the entire trail - we didn’t rush and took photos along the way. I can confidently recommend this service to everyone and we’ll certainly be getting lost in another city soon!

      Dry and takes longer than advertised.
      We were not able to complete in the time advertised. The facts given were written in a very dry manner and not especially interesting. We enjoyed it but I would not return to CityDays.

      Fabulous Shoreditch Shuffle
      Shoreditch Shuffle was SO interesting. I didn’t really know the area that well and it was full of fascinating corners that I would never have found without doing the trail. Absolute brilliant; I can’t wait to explore more areas. This is the 4th of these trails I have done and they are all excellent. Thanks

      Great fun and unique sights
      We had a blast trying to figure out clever clues that once you realised what they were pointing to, were an eclectic mix of interest and quirk. We often go into London for a day out and have never seen or noticed the places we discovered. It was a bit long for a ten year old with us but the 2 adults loved every minute! Lunch at the half way point was well worth it:-)

    Wonderful tour around our home city visiting parts that we'd never seen before. The clues (if you read them carefully!) Are just the right level of challenge. The only criticism I'd have is that it's a really long walk back to the start from the end!

    Hi Mat, so glad to hear you had a lovely time. Sorry about the route not being circular, we try to take you to some of the best locations and sometimes they just don't align with that. We'll update the listing to make this more clear. Kind regards, Tom

    Really good way to explore the city. The clues were difficult enough to keep you engaged but not too difficult that it was stressful. Plenty of breaks that you can take as long as you want on so you can really take this at your own pace. Includes some great landmarks and sights around Sheffield.

    It was a great way to see Sheffield. Managed to fit 2 pub visits en route. The clues were very clever but not too difficult and no prior knowledge of the area was necessary. The only negative was that the finish was nowhere near the start.

    Sensible clues, a map of Sheffield streets, less reliance on the customer's knowledge of IT - a learning from participants who have difficulties ALL would help. It wasn't fun - it was frustrating.
