Wonderful way to discover a few of oxfords little gems! Go at your own pace, free to be distracted by anything else that piques your curiosity along the way!
Really fun way to see Oxford
, Sep 2021
Really clever way to see Oxford. The treasure hunt was great fun, the maps were very clear and the clues were really clever. Best part was you can do it at your leisure. Fancy a drink or bite to eat? Want to explore the sites or visit that boutique shop you just walked past? Go ahead, the treasure hunt waits until you're ready to join in again. Highly recommended.
Great way to see the sights

Brilliant way to see the sights, challenging at times, certainly made you think. Really enjoyed the experience.
Educational and enjoyable activity

The self guided treasure hunt was excellent. The Opportunity to travel around the city and see sights you wouldn’t have seen normally while doing the treasure hunt was great. The additional facts given between the clues was as added bonus. Would recommended this activity to everyone
