Really good fun. - We really enjoyed the treasure hunt. We are very familiar with Oxford so this was a chance to spot some things about our local city that we hadn’t previously noticed.

2 adults & 5 kids, and it was great! - My wife and I did the "Treasure Hunt Oxford" with our 2 kids and 3 of our friends kids last weekend. The kids are 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10, and we found the questions were aimed just at the right level - hard enough to be interesting but do-able enough to keep everyone interested. I would recommend this to anyone with an afternoon to fill in Oxford.

Perfect way to explore the city - A really fun and engaging way to explore the city, without the faff of having to plan where to go and what to see. The hunt encompassed all the must see spots, plus hidden gems that wouldn’t have been on our radar left to our own devices. The clues were nicely challenging and the maps easy to follow. We loved it. Would thoroughly recommend and would like to repeat elsewhere.

Great day out with friends… - We had such a great time. Clues were great and we saw much of the city never seen before by our friends who live locally. Easy walking even on a really hot day. Great fun and recommend by us all.

A fun way to explore - Such a fun way to explore Oxford. If you love a treasure hunt and walking then this is for you. So many beautiful places to explore as well as some hidden gems. I came to visit my friend who had recently moved here and we were both impressed. Would highly recommend as a fun day out.

Fantastic - Thank you very much for such an enjoyable afternoon. We did this for a hen do and the group of 14 thoroughly enjoyed. We split into 3 teams (mixed ages) and everyone said how much they enjoyed this activity. Really got the brain and eyes working. Thanks Paul and Ian.

Fun day out! - It’s a clever concept. It will appeal to those who like puzzles and murder mystery style books. The clues were well written and it takes you to some of the interesting corners of Oxford. Some of the clues are a bit too easy (though this keeps it family friendly) Definitely worth stopping off at the pub it takes you to en route!

Do not waste your money - Quite boring!!! Clues are confusing until the very last one…and you need to get to the last one, believe me. Tour isn’t that interesting, historical spots are not so interesting or the best. Anyway, if I could ask my money back, I would.
