What people are saying about Cheshire

Concerned about weather but the rain stopped & we were able to venture out on our treasure hunt. All info was given and explained thoroughly. We followed the guide lines and clues and had an enjoyable afternoon learning all about Chester. An enjoyable time was had by all and we recommend this hunt as a way to learn the history of this beautiful place of Chester.

Loved this! Booked with some friends thinking it would be a different way to explore Chester, it was so much fun. Such a good idea we will definitely be doing more in different locations. Just make sure your phones are fully charged as ours died with seconds to spare! However I think that added to our experience running round like we was on Challenge Anneka

My 10yr old and I really enjoyed this, the shop is full of very interesting things. You can pay an extra £1 for a small glass bottle to make a witch talisman. Not for the squeamish, but my girl loved all the gore. The plague street is fab and full of interesting gory facts. Definitely worth a visit and not too expensive either.

Excellent views of the river and scenery, commentary very informative, 30 minutes just wasn’t long enough

A nice smooth sail and a very informative guide throughout,very enjoyable
