      Great fun!
      Did this for a team building session - 5 of us - and despite being a rainy day in Manchester it was a great activity for us to do together!

      Perfect Pandemic Activity!
      We loved this treasure hunt! It was so well put together, we were quite surprised at just how well done it was. It helped us to get out and about, have some fun, be tourists in our own city, all whilst social distancing. I’ve already asked if they have anymore in Manchester as we want to do one with friends too.

      Great way to discover Manchester!
      Two friends and our two 13 year old children (boy & girl) wanted to go into Manchester for the day, but there weren't any activities open, so we decided to do a tour to show the kids a bit of historic Manchester. Turns out we didn't know much either! Was really good fun and very interesting, great to do in semi lockdown when the streets are quiet and you can stop and look up! Difficult age to engage kids, but they really got involved and had a great day. We stopped at The Wharf for a lovely lunch outside in beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended.

    What a great way to learn about the history of Manchester and the people who have made such an influential impact to the world.

    I would highly recommend doing the treasure hunt as it was extremely interesting and takes you all over the city. This also means you can stop off at some great places to eat and drink as well before carrying on with the hunt.

    Thanks for recommending us, I'm delighted you had such a fun time. Manchester's choc full of interesting stories and buildings, it was a lot of fun researching it all for the game. If you fancy another adventure, we're in other cities around the UK. Liverpool and Sheffield are close by. There's only 2 of us, we don't have a marketing team, so your review is really important. Thank you! Ian 🦜 (co-founder)

    My girlfriend and I had spent the previous two days doing very couple based things, lots of food and drink. This was the perfect way to end our three day trip. We got to see certain parts of the city you just wouldn’t if you didn’t know about them and also hit around 15,000 steps that day, so double benefit!

    It’s very well run and self explanatory, I like the WhatsApp style messaging used to give you your clues and instructions. For a good couple of hours of entertainment, it’s also a very good price. We paid £50 to do an escape room after which we enjoyed a lot less!

    Highly recommend as something different to do whilst you’re in Manchester.

    A great way to spend a couple of hours in the city, took us to places we may not have visited otherwise and we learned some things along the way. Most of the clues are simple, we got a few wrong the first guess and had to use a hint once. We got confused by one of the maps and had to use Google maps for this but that could've just been us being silly. We enjoyed doing this and would recommend it

    Really enjoyed doing the treasure hunt. I’ve lived and worked in Manchester City centre over a number of years and the tour gave me a new perspective on the city and showed me lots of things that I’d never seen before. The whole experience was so much fun.

    This was a really interesting and fun experience, and a great way to see the city and learn some weird and wonderful facts about it's history. It takes you along a really pretty route and there are lots of points where you can stop for a rest or bite to eat if you fancy. Really recommend doing this early on in your visit to Manchester to get familiar with the city and see some real gems! Great value and a great experience.

    It's lovely to hear that you had such a fun time. That's a great tip about using the hunt as a way of getting familiar with the city on a visit! Fancy another go? We're in more cities! Thanks for writing a review and I hope we get to give you another adventure soon. Ian 🦜 (co-founder)

    I took a girl on a date and this could not have been a more fun experience. The puzzles require teamwork and a bit of lateral thinking and the whole hunt is a perfect way to see the city and learn some stuff along the way. Being able to go at your own pace together with the ease of use and immersive feel of the app lends to a simulateously exciting and laid back experience.

    We had a fab time exploring Manchester and finding out new things. It’s a brill way to explore the city! The fact that it is self guided is great- you can do it in your own time and there’s lots of places to stop off. Everything was sent to my phone so we could start and finish in our own time and it was so easy to access all the clues- you just need data on your phone! Definitely would recommend if you like exploring new places or even if you’ve been to Manchester before (which we have many times!) Every city could do with something like this!

    I revived this treasure hunt as a present from a friend who was visiting me in Manchester. Even though I grew up and live inner city Manchester, this tour took us to places I’ve never been and gave us some cool history! We really enjoyed the clues and treasure map style directions. It was super simple how we received the clues through the website. As it was not time controlled we were able to explore the locations properly and even a cheeky pub visit.

    It was so much fun even on a rainy day - a really great day time activity. I’m hoping to do a few more in other cities!

    We had a great day with the treasure hunt, thank you. We had time to kill in Manchester whilst our daughter was at Comic Con. We explored parts of the city we probably wouldn’t have found otherwise, like the canal basin.

    It can be done at your own pace so we enjoyed being able to linger at points where something else may have caught our eye or just have a break for lunch or a drink.

    The only feature that I did find frustrating was the multiple texts between each clue, I would have been happier to receive one text with all of the history in it, but that’s a minor detail. I would certainly recommend it to visitors and locals and I will be looking for something similar when I visit other cities.

    Visited Manchester with a friend and was looking for something to do whilst there. The treasure hunt was fantastic and I would definitely do it again but at a more leisurely pace with my husband and teenage children. We started at 6pm and it took about 2.5 hours without much stopping. There are statues and places of interest in Manchester I’d never seen before so thank you for this experience. The log at the end is great detailing all of the places visited with links to further historical information . We’ll be back soon.
