--"Had a great time on the City of London walk. Visited a few places we didn't know existed and had a very nice lunch at one of the recommended pubs - so nice we took a bit too long and our time wasn't that good! Will definitely try another walk."
--"We had a great time, seeing some interesting hidden gems and generally 'observing' more than you normally do! Never knew there was a Roman Amphitheatre in London!"
--"Really fun day out discovering hidden gems of the city of London. Great clues, lots of fun trying to figure them out. 100% would recommend for anyone who wants to see the lesser known side of London."

*Positives* - The City Treasure Hunt was really good fun - it was great to try something a little different, and helped give our regular London meet-up day a structure. We were a team of 3 and, despite 2 of us now being Londoners (one of whom works in the City!) we walked streets we'd never walked, spotted features we'd never noticed, and stopped to look at things in more detail than we ever might have done otherwise. It genuinely gave us a renewed appreciation for our capital city, particularly for the number of green spaces there are! We happened to arrive at the Guildhall Museum and Galleries in time for a free 50 minute tour which was fascinating - again, we never knew it was there. *Feedback* - The clues are quite easy and family-friendly, we wondered if it might be worth offering 2 difficulty levels? Also, it may not work over message, but we'd have loved to read a historical/cultural 'tit-bit' for each location/feature we were invited to discover.

Great socially distanced experience for all. Makes you really take notice of some of the things that make London special you would normally walk right past. Highly recommend for families/friends/couples.

We had a great time on the Treasure hunt. The clues were usually quite clear as long as you took a moment to read them properly before setting off. There are so many little places tucked away that even as londoners we had never seen before. We'll be going back for a better look in the future. (You get so involved with getting to the next clue, you don't always take in all of the information). All in all it was a really good experience which I would definitely recommend to friends. The suggested time of 4 hrs is about right but consider that you are walking all of the time. This could be problematic for those less mobile.

We had a great few hours on this trail, and it was perfect for our 9 year old who enjoyed solving the clues too. The messages were sent immediately via WhatsApp and everything worked really well. We know London really well but it took us to loads of places we’ve never really seen/noticed before. Next time we might try a more challenging one!

We had a great afternoon strolling through the City of London, an area which we would not usually visit. Such a cool way to explore and it successfully held the interest of our two teenage boys! Would highly recommend 👌
