The Secret City Treasure Hunt Tours

A cross between a city tour and an urban treasure hunt

πŸ—Ί The Secret City makes walking tours with a twist in cities across the UK, Ireland, Australia, the US, and Canada. We currently have games in 15 cities worldwide, and multiple through different districts of London, NYC, and Sydney.

Players are guided from point to point by cryptic directions sent to their phones. At the end of each is an interesting place and a puzzle that needs to be solved on site to release facts about the area and the next set of directions. In this way, travellers are taken on an interactive, puzzle-filled tour of the city.

The tours cover between 4-6km and on average take between 1-3 hours to complete. Along the way we recommend pubs, cafes and markets for players to take breaks in, and offer hints to help those who need it with the clues. By doing this, we hope to make the games enjoyable for people of different fitness and ability levels.
