    Was excited to participate in scavenger hunt while learning and exploring parts of London. The use of an app w bot clues seemed fun. Sadly, we found the hints and clues for this hunt to be unclear and misleading and outdated. Several typos and use of language made it super frustrating to follow clues.. In addition, the tons of people traffic around Picadilly during Bank Holiday made it harder to navigate; and the cold weather made it uncomfortable especially as we grew more annoyed. Admittedly, there were several clever clues but after 2 hours and not even half way through hunt, we aborted. The last leg of clues we’re missing due to new construction. We got aggravated and realized this activity was not worth it. Don’t recommend this hunt but would try better organized scavenger hunts albeit a higher cost.
