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.

    Four of us went and did the Lost Temple escape room and were not disappointed. We were welcomed in by Dan who was friendly and accommodating and even let us in early to escape the rain. From the get go Dan was enthusiastic and friendly and answered all of our silly questions as well as being in character for our escape room intro and helpful giving us the odd nudge when needed. The room and props were spectacular and really well thought out, a lot of time and effort has gone into putting the rooms together and this shows. Dan gave us a sneak peak of the Clifton Manor room afterwards. We were well and truly in character and had a great afternoon decoding the brilliant puzzles and clues. Every little detail has been so clearly thought out and prodigy escapes execute them so well. 10/10 recommend and will definitely be back for more. Thank you!

    Our time at the Escape Hunt in Exeter was absolutely amazing, we all throughly enjoyed the experience. As a family we worked together to succeed on the Blackbeard challenge. Our host Veronica was fabulous and made the experience enjoyable. We all said we would return for another Escape Room challenge.

    These wonderful free tours go ahead if at least 2 people turn up, so I was very pleased that one other person did. Our guide, Jackie, had so much information to share, but delivered it in a way that was entertaining, so I didn't feel 'talked at'. She also had a folder of pictures to illustrate the information she was sharing. The Medieval Exeter tour included going inside 3 historic buildings which are all open to the public free of charge, so you are inspired to return and explore further. I'm looking forward to participating in more of these tours.

    Fabulous time at VRVE exeter. Host Jez was brilliant, prompt start, quickly went through tutorials, recommended games and challenges for us to do multiplayer. Maximised playing time and we all had great fun. I would recommend asking the host to take some photos/ videos whilst the group is playing!

    We had a brilliant time cruising round the forest on our Segways. We were both extremely nervous about using them as this was our first time using a Segway however Mia, our guide, put us both at ease and allowed us to take the training at our own pace. This allowed us to both build confidence without feeling pressured or rushed. The tour around the forest was pleasant, with a good mix of off road and on road.. once again Mia put us at ease with her professionalism, encouragement, and reassurance. All staff made us feel very welcome, and we will definitely return in the future.
    Thanks for a cracking time!

    We had a great afternoon here, so much fun exploring the treetops & challenging each other. A good laugh and great way to spend the day with friends.

    The instructions were simple & easy to follow, our understanding of safety rules was all checked before you’re allowed to set off alone.

    Our instructor Lloyd was absolutely lovely, very helpful, friendly and professional. We had a good laugh and enjoyed being able to go through the course by ourselves but knowing instructors were close by on the ground if needed.

    All of the team there went above and beyond to help and make us feel welcome. A great day out for anyone looking for something a bit different.

    We were busy shopping in Exeter, the market is so close to the cathedral. The staff there were lovely, we went in to decompress, out of the hustle and bustle it was an oasis of quiet. I was able to write a private prayer for my family, and there were some amazing people who would pray with you if you wanted. Beautiful buildings.

    This is a gem of a Victorian museum with free entry which has a suprisingly extensive collection of artefacts and exhibits. Some are traditional while others are more interactive, mixing old and new styles effectively. I particularly enjoyed the early section exploring the geology of the South West and the Roman and medieval galleries. Friendly vibe, too, and a good cafe.

    I would advise to book, we didn’t but got lucky. Super little tour into the belly of Exeter. Very knowledgeable staff & was great to learn about the history & then be able to spot where things would have been sorted when back up on ground. Great value
