I came across this by accident as all the activities we had planned were fully booked. However we had a great time following the clues, despite the rain, and we got to see parts of the city we would have missed if left to our own devices. It’s a shame you can’t reread the clues and information after finishing as we were so intent on moving to next clue that we didn’t take in as much information as we should. One or two of the clues were slightly misleading and I don’t think they could be solved without taking a hint but all in all, great entertainment. Will definitely do another on our next city break.
