We had a great time doing the trail and good way to see York and visit a few pubs on the way. Some of the clues were a bit cryptic but we got there in the end!

Awesome fun morning for the whole family!

We had such a fun time working out all the clues and taking in the sights, especially those places we would otherwise not have seen because we wouldn't have known about them! The first clue was slightly more difficult, especially as we didn't know what R and+ meant, but after we clocked it, the remaining clues were relatively easy and fun to decipher. We didn't feel rushed and really enjoyed the whole morning, would highly recommend!

Amazing way to see historic details hidden in plain sight!

Lovely way to see a city we’ve visited many times before! We walked 22,000 steps around York yesterday, breaking up the murder mystery with regular breaks, and loved every moment. This is a terrific tour that takes you off the beaten path, and highlights beautiful architecture and fantastic historic details hidden in plain sight that we would otherwise have missed. Brilliant way to spend a day meandering around York.

It was good fun, but the weather was shocking 😂 we got very wet. The coffee shop was lovely and we got a bit lost. Did a bit of shopping along the way and had fun!

Hi Patricia, It sounds like a lovely adventure, albeit for the rain! I'm glad you and your team still have a great time on the trail and enjoyed the lovely delights that York has to offer! All the best, Tom

We got to see streets of York that we would never have seen without the experience. The riddles were really fun to try and decipher, very cleverly thought up! We would have enjoyed having a few more pub stops if we were to do it again

Thanks Eve, we're working hard to roll out our trails in more cities. More pub stops, noted! Thank you!
