What an excellent afternoon. I was hosting two colleagues from Japan and apart from having to translate the clues, this was a great way to see the city. And my colleagues learned new words and phrases....what's not to love?!

Fantastic work translating the clues into Japanese! That's seriously impressive! We're in other great cities around the UK too, if they ever fancy expanding their regional dialects! 😂 Thanks so much for leaving us a review 🙏🏼 Ian 🦜 (co-founder)

I found this Treasure Hunt from a Google search as our trip to Saltburn was cancelled because of a rail strike and what a find it was too. I’ve visited Newcastle many times for shopping and theatre and concerts but never knew much about the actual city itself. The treasure hunt was great, I saw parts of the city I’d never seen before and learnt lots about it’s early history and industrial past. I most definitely recommend it and I’ll be looking at treasure hunts in other cities I visit too.

Booking was easy and instructions were clear to start. It was raining heavily in Newcastle that day and we asked to continue next day. Paul and Ian Were fantastic and replied to emails quickly, we were able to continue the next day and had a great adventure. We lived in the city for over 5 years and never noticed some of the bits we saw on the hunt. Interface was easy to use and we had no issues at all. Wish there were more trails so we can play again.

I arranged for 35 of my colleagues and myself to have a fun element of our all day meeting and decided on a Treasure Hunt around Newcastle.
Many of my colleagues are local and not really that keen to join in, but how wrong were they? They were actually the ones who said they enjoyed it the most, saw new places and interests they'd never seen or heard of before... in their own home town! Many have said they want to do it again with their colleagues as well as family & friends.
As there were so many of us, we were in small groups. We each had our own access to the game chat from our phones, so no need to fight over seeing the screen and the next clues. The game took a good few hours and not really much time to stop for a drink, but then we had a time restraint. You can easily take longer than us and enjoy a mid-way refreshment.
We all had an AMAZING time and can't wait to do it again. It was a HUGE success and perfectly broke away from the meeting element of the day. I’ve been asked to organise it again at our next big meeting and I’m never asked to repeat anything, so goes to show how much everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you so much for creating it.

Louise, I'm delighted you are your colleagues had so much fun playing last week. It's always great to hear that even the locals found new places they hadn't seen before. We'd love to invite you all to one of our other games again soon! There's only 2 of us, we don't have a marketing team, so your review is really important. Thank you! Ian 🦜 (co-founder)

Having never been to Newcastle, I wasn't sure where to start - luckily Treasure Hunt Newcastle was there to guide me! A fantastic way to explore somewhere new and see all the best bits, while also being a fab puzzle at the same time.

We had a great time doing Treasure Hunt Newcastle! It was a really good length and took us all round the city, so it was a perfect way to orientate ourselves for the rest of the weekend. The clues were a good level of challenge, and there was always a helpful hint if we needed it! Plus plenty of great recommendations for places to stop for a well earned pint. Would highly recommend to anyone!
