I had a fantastic time, as did the rest of the team.
It was well organised despite there being 17 teams and one returning 10 minutes late.

The clues were really good and trying to get pictures of strangers was a riot! We were approached by Agent Alex, but we weren't fooled! The prizes were good as well.

This was defiantly good value for money and I highly recommend this to everyone I will be back for another hunt.

Overall very good, staff worked hard to make sure the treasure hunt was challenging a fun. One saboteur did catch us out! Organisation waned a little towards the end and prize giving took a bit too long but the prizes were of reasonable quality for everybody.

Not sure terming the saboteur 'Agent Orange' is really appropriate. Sure it sounds catchy and you have heard it somewhere but its effects continue to blight entire communities. Not to mention its controversial use in the first place during a very controversial episode of history. London has a lot of international visitors and some may find that particularly insensitive or offensive.

Dear Mary Jo,

Thank you for the review and for your feed back and we are glad that you enjoyed the event.

The time period as a window of arrival for teams and scoring and prize giving is 30 minutes and is organised very well through us having run many hundreds of Treasure Hunts and allows for the 9 separate challenges to be scored, an explanation of the answers by The Master of The Hunt and for the prize giving, including bonus prizes for the look-a-like challenge.

Unfortunately 2 teams did not hand their score cards in and it took us 5 extra minutes to resolve this issue so the event finished at 9.05 pm instead of 9 pm. It is very unusual for this to happen with the scorecards.

We take on board your point about Agent Orange, but it is very clear on our web site, on the booking confirmation email that we send to all Treasure Hunters and on the Treasure Hunt challenge sheet that teams receive, that "Agent" is in the context of a Special Agent and not a chemical agent. Indeed on our web site it says "Beware of the secret Agent Orange who will be lurking on the underground trying to disrupt and undermine your mission", so it is very clear in what context and meaning the word agent is being used.

The chemical agent orange was indeed tragically used in warfare in Vietnam and unfortunately most other agent words followed by a colour can also represent a chemical agent when used in that context, but we feel it is very clear that our Agent Orange is a person and indeed when they bust a team (catch them out), they bring out an Agent Orange id card that has a picture of an Agent dressed in Orange on it.

We had a most wonderful time on our Treasure Hunt on Thursday 16/04/2015.

Cliff the master of events was very amiable and well organised. He managed to keep the enthusiasm going and was able to keep the 50 or so people interested and entertained. This is a very hard task to do whilst London continues to go about its business especially on a spring evening.

The secret agents were very good and did their respective jobs well. Unfortunately too well that we were penalised for not answering the allotted statement that we were instructed to give. This made the hunt ever so more challenging and it shows that us Londoners are not an unfriendly lot either! Even if it meant a penalty! So watch out!

The clues were challenging and very interesting which made the event even more enjoyable. The 2 and half hours flew by and it did not drag at all. I learnt so much about the city which made the hunt even more interesting. Also I learnt of a few choice places to take mini lunch breaks as there are hidden parks and green spaces amongst the buildings that I was totally unaware of.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening (coming in second was an added bonus) and hope to return. We were told that there are variations to the treasure hunt and no two are the same. In the height of summer as the days are longer the hunt is on for longer.

A brilliant way to spend an evening. It is well worth the cost and hats off to the staff for organising a wonderful event.

We bought a voucher to take part in the London Premier Walking Tours London Underground Treasure Hunt through TimeOut as a fun activity for an evening. I had completely underestimated how much fun we would have - the 2 1/2 hour event was brilliantly organised, well thought out and an interesting way to learn more about our city. I have already highly recommended it to all my friends and family!

Yesterday, a friend took my on the Kings, Queens, politics and power walking tour in central London. I have never written a review on trip advisor before but feel absolutely compelled to given the tour was utterly brilliant. Our tour guide, Cliff, was not only like a walking historical encyclopedia but was hilariously entertaining, warm and funny. He even had his own sound effects to add an extra bit of dazzle! I have a degree in history, love London, love the royals so this trip was really always going to be perfectly 'my bag'...but it completely surpassed expectations. I would give it 10/10 in a heart beat. It was informative but also fun.
