What a fantastic time we had!! Hubby was a bit dubious at first, but he loved it and told me it was the favourite part of the trip. We learned loads and saw lots of York we wouldn’t have seen!! Also, the hubby is a wheelchair user, and we found the activity very accessible and suitable. Thank you for a great experience, we would highly recommend it to anyone!! X

Two hours of detailed instructions that took us to places we'd not have otherwise gone to. We only needed one hint!

The treasure hunt was great, saw parts of york we didnt know about. A lot of walking but we enjoyed that.

It's a great way to see the city if you are short for time. A lot of walking but well worth it

Fun & interesting got to see things we wouldn't have normally seen.
