Visited Amsterdam in September and played with some friends, and it’s a great game with challenging clues! Each clue makes you walk to different places around the city center, familiarizing you with Amsterdam’s streets, and the history they carry. Highly recommend

I played this with a friend two weekends ago, and we discovered new things, even though we have both lived in Amsterdam. The props are beautiful and definitely make the mystery seem real. Would recommend for families or companies as well!

I just finished the scavenger hunt with my husband. It was quirky, fun, and a great way to start our Saturday! There was a ton of thought and detail put into all of the puzzle materials; we were very impressed. They weren't terribly hard and...More

The mystery hunt following the traces of "a secret sender" was engaging from the start! Well conceived: at the end all the pieces joined in a big puzzle, and accompanied by well crafted items, the experience was immersive, we almost didn't notice other tourists, and...More

Challenging, entertaining, fun! With 2, 3 or a group of people. This avdenture will make you look at the city with new eyes. Little details that bring the city together, puzzels that lead you to places that you would otherwise miss. Great experience. Highly recommended!

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
