Me and my best friend both were born & grew up in London and the Secret of the Squares treasure hunt gave us an opportunity to explore the city we knew so well in a different way and learn & see new things on the way! London almost felt like a different city during this hunt with how much more we were noticing around us and learning about what we were passing! It was so much fun, and the perfect level of difficulty for brain scratching & enjoyment! We highly recommend!

We’ve had such a great time doing this treasure hunt! It took us an hour longer than suggested because we were off course on a few occasions! We’ve seen things we wouldn’t have seen unless we were looking for them…usually walk right by without looking. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see more.

This was a really lovely way to explore a city I thought I knew quite well! The treasure hunt makes you look around and really pay attention to details you'd otherwise miss, and it was a completely different way of wandering through London. It's a combination of thinking outside the box and spotting small details, so going with a few people probably works best because you can combine different ways of thinking. There were two of us, and the treasure hunt took us about 1h45 without rushing at any point. The break was planned for exactly the right time so we could re-energise for the second half. We're planning on doing a couple more of these because it's a great way to spend a couple of hours walking around and learning fun facts, and it's a fantastic alternative to classic guided city tours!

The trip was challenging enough to be fun but not frustratingly difficult. It was fun to follow, and we found all sorts of interesting places I'd never known about before. I did this with my teenage son who loved it. My only suggestion for improvement would be a leaderboard so you could see where you ranked against others who had done it in the past.

Really enjoyed this experience. Exploring a city I thought I knew, discovering new places and famous people past and present.
