It's a good route and helps you see and learn about the city. We enjoyed it, as 3 adults we found it maybe a little bit too easy to solve but still enjoyed thoroughly none the less.

I first played this super fun game with my roommates last May, and now I've done it again as a team building experience! Everyone on my team enjoyed it, and I had even more fun seeing others experience the excitement I had the first time...More

The games and stories were really fun and clever. But, my favorite thing about the mystery city tour is it makes you see things in different angles and persuade you to not just "look at that cool building/statue/monument" but really look at it, really take...More

I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing this hunt with some friends that came to visit Amsterdam and it was super fun! I was born and raised in Amsterdam and therefore inevitably felt that nothing or nobody could teach or show me anything I didn’t already...More

I learned so much from this game! I'm an American living in Amsterdam and thought I knew a lot about the city... but I was blown away. I'm glad our group was a mix of locals and our visitors from other countries, because we all...More

Clever, challenging puzzles with an engaging and historically accurate storyline. It’s a great day-time activity to explore Amsterdam with your friends and learn about the city’s history - even for a local like me. If you like escape rooms, you will love this!

This game was really well-thought out; imagine an escape room, but in the open air, which makes you look at the city in an entirely new way. Some amazing historical facts that I (as an Amsterdam local) didn’t even know about paired with puzzles that...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
