Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent instructions and clues challenging enough to follow for kids and adults. Helped us notice and enjoy aspects of the city we may not have otherwise.

We have been to York a few times, but this made us see the city in brand new way. Thank you for a great day out. We look forward to using this to explore other areas of the UK

Great way of seeing the main sites of York when on a time limit. Instructions are very clear and the game is easy to use. Really enjoyed solving the clues and learning some of the history.

Great fun and a fantastic way to see York and navigate the city, took in a few shops and pubs on route. Kept the kids occupied (17 and 11). Highly recommend.

While this was not our first treasure hunt, we still get a thrill when we find a clue. It's fun when people are crowding to see some super popular sight and you just walk by to the side to discover at a little sign/ sculpture/ picture that is your clue and gives you more insight as to what you're looking at. It feels like an adventure every time.

We went as a group of 4 adults and 5 children ages 6-11. The route was fun and engaging and really easy to follow. We got to see many of the main sites in York and we all had an amazing day. The variety of snickleways helped to make it feel like a real adventure. Thank you!!

We really enjoyed the Treasure Hunt - York. The Whatsapp format works really well. The previous day we had taken one of the mobile phone audio tours and the Treasure Hunt supplemented this really well as it took us down other side roads and "snerkle ways" not covered. The knowledge that we had gained from the audio tour did not spoil any of the Treasure Hunt. We would recommend that you do both, in the order that we did.

The one minor irritation with the Treasure Hunt was that it ended in a different place, on the opposite side of the York centre, to the start point. This meant that there was a little detective work required to find our way back - but then it is a Treasure Hunt. It would be good if the route could be extended, with a few more clues, to take us back to the start point.

This was a fun way to see some more quirky and interesting features of York and to while away a few hours. As we did this on a winter Sunday some parts of the route were closed but the instructions were always clear on what to do if this was the case. An enjoyable couple of hours!

The treasure hunt was so fun! We got to see so many amazing sights in York and learned a bit of the history along the way. The clues were great and not too hard, but still made us think. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys scavenger hunts, whether you are a tourist or a local!
