Booked this activity as part of a stag weekend. Treasure Hunt York was a perfect self guided walk around historic York, with an element of competition/challenge for those with a competitive streak; with stop offs in a couple of pubs for those who were drinking; and plenty of fresh air to clear our heads from the night before. The technology worked well - everyone was able to see what was going on without having to crowd around a single phone. The clues were solvable, with a few very easily found and a few that were more challenging. We got through in an average of 90 minutes, not including the pub stops. The ability to start and pause the activity at any time made the activity flexible and took the pressure off coordinating a large group. Good support and follow up from Ian at Treasure Hunt Tours - the personal effort to make contact was a nice touch.

Tour was really fun, enjoyed walking around York and solving all the clues immensely. York was very crowded so took us a while to get to some of the clues, and if we did it again we would take breaks when the game directed us to rather than soldier on! Lovely to be really inspecting every nook and cranny of these gorgeous old buildings 😊

A fun and alternative way to see York city centre. As tourists with children aged 9 to 11, we used this outdoor activity as a structure around which to see York. As a treasure trail, we felt it was pitched at the right level to offer everyone an engaging and challenging experience. Excellent value, and the 1.5 - 2.5hr estimate is probably right. But we had no time constraints and this was a day out for us. The beauty of a self-guided activity is that we could do it at our own pace, and took numerous breaks for ice cream, the toilet, lunch, to visit attractions and even a go on a boat ride! I would definitely recommend this to both tourists and York inhabitants, as the route takes in the major attractions, gardens, and river etc, but also some more interesting and obscure features of York. We were all very impressed by how well the treasure hunt worked on our mobiles, and found the delivery slick and graphics sophisticated. I don’t want to give anything away, but the graphic at the end was a lovely surprise.
