Probably a good activity if you are new to London and are reasonably fit, we gave up mid way tbh purely as our feet couldn't take us further and the teenagers had enough. The clues are quite easy but you really don't need to purchase it for every person in your party unless each person wants the same clues to each phone which is a waste. We didn't feel we discovered anything new as we know London well. All in all, its a nice walk through the centre of London.

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, you can stop and start as much as you like if you need more breaks. Or come back to it on other days! The price is per team not per person, so the price is the same for 2 people or 5 people! You can then add up to 5 people per team to receive the messages and respond too. Kind regards, Tom

Great socially distanced experience for all. Makes you really take notice of some of the things that make London special you would normally walk right past. Highly recommend for families/friends/couples.

We had a great time on the Treasure hunt. The clues were usually quite clear as long as you took a moment to read them properly before setting off. There are so many little places tucked away that even as londoners we had never seen before. We'll be going back for a better look in the future. (You get so involved with getting to the next clue, you don't always take in all of the information). All in all it was a really good experience which I would definitely recommend to friends. The suggested time of 4 hrs is about right but consider that you are walking all of the time. This could be problematic for those less mobile.

Really excellent trail round London - taught me so much about Piccadilly Circus, totally changed my view of how beautiful London is! And so much interesting history. Will definitely be returning.

It was fun, though took a lot longer than expected due to roadworks and construction blocking the routes we needed to take. Couldn't finish due to this as we had reservations for a meal. Enjoyed it but it did get boring after a while. It needs to be monitored more to allow for constant works blocking the routes

Hi Daniel, Sorry to hear the trail didn't meet your expectation, we do monitor the routes frequently but unfortunatley works can spring up super quick and also be gone super quick. You can come back to the trail any time so you can stop and start as you like if you have reservations etc. We also have a full money back guarantee. Kind regards, Tom
