I organised this as a social event for a university group of 20, everyone really enjoyed the game! It was a good level of difficulty (not too hard not too easy) and had us exploring the old town. Would recommend for larger groups, it's well organised and involves a tote bag of props which were good quality and added to the experience. Took our teams between 1hr 15 and 1hr 45. Sabela was very good with communication, fast to respond and helped us chose the best game for our group.

My partner discovered this unique experience which we took my parents on. As we worked with a secret professor to investigate the magical and fantastic creatures of Edinburgh. A unique take on the many tours, you get to discover some hidden treasures as you look up. With a unique twist you can’t go far wrong and I’m sure this would be loved by all ages.

I have lived in Edinburgh for 5 years, and still learned so much about the city center from this treasure hunt! It was so fun, engaging, and really well done! The fun started with the first stop and continued throughout. It was a lovely walk through the city center, and I’ve since been taking note of more details in the architecture around the city. Our tour guide (Eva) was fantastic. A delightful activity really for anyone who likes a fun walk through a beautiful city!

We did this treasure hunt in the last day of the fringe, and it was an amazing experience. It is clear that an incredible amount of planning went into organising this event. It was a lot of fun. Looking forward to trying the others treasure hunts organised by this company! Would definitely recommend!

This was the best treasure hunt I've joined in Edinburgh yet. I love that it takes you through the beautiful Old Town and merges Harry Potter with Scotland's mythology and history. It made me see the city with new eyes. I'd highly recommend it to anyone enjoying folklore, fantasy games and riddles.

We had a great experience today doing the fantastic creatures of Edinburgh. A beautiful walk allowed us to see the old town whilst also teaching us about the mythical creatures that have been said to inhabit Edinburgh. The walk was quite long, so wear comfortable shoes, but so enjoyable and I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

This is our third time doing one of Sabi’s treasure hunts and we absolutely loved it like we have every other one! It is a brilliant day out and a fun and different way to explore the city. It’s perfect for small groups, big groups and all ages- perfect for couples, families, everyone really! Her clues and puzzles are very clever and a perfect level of difficulty. Sabi is always on hand to help if needed via WhatsApp and you can see the amount of time and effort that has gone into making these treasure hunts. These are a must when in Edinburgh and I am already looking forward to the next one!

Had such a blast running around Edinburgh searching for all the fantastic beasts! This tour was equally educational as it was fun. Jule was an incredibly helpful game leader and there to give us clues when needed.
Highly recommend this treasure hunt for groups of all ages! (We were just a couple of 20something pals, other groups at our time slot were families)

The fantastic creatures and where to find them scavenger hunt was awesome! We live in Edinburgh but this adventure made us see it in a totally different light. We had a great time rushing about old town searching for creatures we did not know where there. Had a fab time, thanks Eva.

A great family activity on a Sunday morning! Fantastic creatures was a well-organised, creative and fun game for our family (our children are aged 10 & 14). We walked around the old town looking for our creatures. In total it took us around 2 hours which was the perfect amount of time for an adventure such as this one. We enjoyed discovering unknown features of iconic landmarks. Sabela was welcoming and helpful - well done for creating and designing such a fab family game.
