We got to see parts of...

We got to see parts of York that we wouldn't have otherwise. The first clue stumped us for a bit but after that we were on a roll. The hints are helpful and it reminds you to take in your surroundings, rather than race to complete it.

Ahoy Elizabeth, thanks for leaving us a five star review! People often find the clue the hardest, so we actually try and make that one a bit simplier to ease into things. Glad you enjoyed it all. Thanks for your support, we hope to see you on one of our hunts again soon, Ian
Great way to see the city...

Great way to see the city and enjoy time with friends. Time to do your own thing as well as the treasure hunt
A great basis for a lazy day round York

I have always lived in York, but I still found places I had never seen. It’s a good basis for a day in Town.
