Great way to explore a new place, we really wouldn’t have noticed as much culture of hadn’t done this activity! Kept our children engaged brilliantly

We found it fun to look for the answers, thought the duration was a good length, and discovered things about oxford that we didn’t know about, and we have visited oxford a few times now.

This Treasure Hunt took us off the main drag of Oxford City into the cobbled streets with delightful college views you wouldn’t see otherwise. We are locals and hadn’t noticed some of the finer details you seek in this Treasure Hunt. It’s a great learning curve and an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.

Very entertaining and fun way to spend a couple of hours. We did it on a very cold day which is not recommended, but at least it was dry!! It’s an excellent way to see Oxford, we know the city very well, but we had to follow the trial nevertheless to find all the interesting answers. We would highly recommend.
