We were a family of 8, age range from 6 to 65 and we had the best day. It took us 3hrs and 11mins to do and it was brilliant fun. Clues were just hard enough that you had to think outside the box but not too hard that we got stuck. We saw previously unseen corners of London and some familiar gems. We even stumbled through Warner Bros setting up night sets for the new 101 Dalmations movie with all the cars and props which the kids loved and passed through a few Harry Potter locations as well. Was definitly a good one for kids as lots of cafe stops. We loved it so much we have booked another one for just after Christmas and to do Moriarty in January. Great family day out, well done Hidden City!!

Perhaps we expected more but its was a long day. This was for two adults and three teens. It started well and the clues were just about right to follow. Then we got to a pub and then it went down hill. Even after asking for help and releashing the clue we could not see the relation ship with the pub sign. It spoiled the day as the clue was too obtuse. Another clue went for the big arch and you would think that this would be admiralty arch but no, a small arch on the other side of Trafalgar square. We completed the game and walked 23 Km in a day. I would have expected a bit of interaction with the game and for 25 Pounds each a tad expensive, you do get a free drink at the start. The teens expected more, I thought it was worth 15 Pounds,. Advice take a power pack as your iphone will not last the course. Good walking shoes and watch the weather, It’s a no, no, in the wet. You see a lot of London and having worked there for over 4O years there were places that I had walked by but never stopped in to. Perhaps its us as I see the other reviews are great but I expected more at the end and the way the bar staff looked , this was the reaction of a lot of contestants. A suggestion would be to have a free coffee at the end because you will need it. Would I do it again, probably no, Its all internet phone based.

How do you keep 3 kids entertained in London on a budget? A spy based treasure hunt!!! I'm always sceptical of anything that's cheap in London but for this price it was worth taking a punt. I get emailed a booklet with the route and clues and I can print one for each child or let them work as a team. It's self run so you can start at any time and go at your own pace. If you need a break you can restart wherever you stopped. We had lunch half way through. Clues vary in difficulty so it works for all ages. I had one 8 year old who found several clues and two 11 year olds who solved the more cryptic ones. We did the route around waterloo and southbank. I know the area but this made me notice things I'd never pId attention to before. A couple of miles walking so a great way of doing something interesting and physical for the kids. Deffinately on the list to try another one. Top marks

We had so much fun doing this - it was our first HiddenCity trail but we're definitely looking to do others in the future. The puzzles were of a really good difficulty (we were four late 20s adults), and we enjoyed the way we could alter the 'plot' somewhat by our choices. We particularly loved that we got to see cool little parts of London that we'd never been to before. The trail ended up in a really cool location too :) You could tell that the trail had been well tested, as they had appropriate info where needed, for example, they had considered common signal blackspots. The optional breaks were worked in really well and the messages/instructions were clear to understand. It was also really helpful that you could sign up several people so if one of us lost signal then another could take over. And the theme and story, being Alice themed, were perfectly to our taste :D We were all of average fitness and able bodied, and we found the moving around just fine, the distance between clues was good and no public transport was required. There were steps involved (London does have quite a lot of steps and cobbles!) and it did require periods of walking, though there were plenty of cafes etc along the route if you did need to stop more often - note, also means opportunities to use the loo if required! I think it would be fine for children too. If a member of your team has mobility needs, definitely get in touch with the company before booking - they're very friendly and helpful, so hopefully they could advise on whether any of their trails are step free or could be adapted.

Such a fun way to sightsee. Having been to London many times this tour really took our group to places that we hadn't seen before and has certainly given us places to go back to! The clues were challenging but really fun to work out. We had a little lapse at the start when we weren't receiving instructions, we hadn't quite understood what to text back after a little break! Would certainly recommend and definitely want to do another!
