“Crazy Capers in the Capital”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

A small group of us decided to use a treasure hunt around London as a fun team building exercise. We chose Hidden City because of the ease of set up and the ability to have clues send direct to mobiles - no mucking about with paper.
After splitting into teams and putting some ground rules in place - No googling and travel by foot only, we split up to enjoy the hunt. The clues were a mixture of cryptic and based on London landmarks and although some London knowledge is useful, it is not essential as if you get stuck you can always ask a cabbie. Lots of fun followed, charging around London, hiding from opponents, trying to put the other team off the scent all ended in a much deserved drink. We all spent the next couple of hours laughing over the experience, the wrong answers and sore feet.
Lots of fun and would recommend it to anyone.

“StreetArt Shoreditch - Brilliant Value - Fun in an unexplored territory”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

Log on and pay before you go or en route via your Blackberry / iphone / Andriod
Receive and Send via text message to obtain clues and provide answers (at normal cost and not excessive)
Clues not challenging and this allows you to enjoy the exploration with an almost guaranteed sense of achievement.
Would go again to a different tour if cost remains the same.
Shoreditch isn't for the fearless though. Bit of a rough area, supposedly "up and coming", definitely slightly bohemian but I wouldn't go back to Shoreditch itself....

“Awesome competitive fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

Great way to see off the beaten track parts of London. We did the Bar breaks, so you can have a few drinks on the way and catch up with the other team. It was a great day activity and it is also good value for money. I would recommend bringing an A to Z, however.

“Great afternoon out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

Went with friends for a very exciting treasure hunt around Buckingham palace and the Southbank. A great way to discover new parts of London. There were two teams which added an extra level of competition, and led to some good stories in the pub afterwards!

“Street art, riddles and Shoreditch, what more could you want?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

I'm still fairly new to London, so I hadn't had the chance to just walk around Shoreditch and see the sights before, I've also always been a fan of London street art, so with this I got a chance to really explore one of the coolest places in London, whilst simultaneously getting guided around by some of the best street art pieces that London has to offer.
This was great for an afternoon tour as (without giving away the ending!) we ended up in a place that was then the perfect starting point for a night out!

Fantastic introduction to the Shoreditch area!
