    Kiwis think Gourmaze is Swet as!
    My husband and I are from the other side of the world and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. It was a gift and I don’t think my friends could have chosen better. We did the Sweet one and would happily sign up for another next time we visit. It stretched the mind enough without frustrating us. We had loads of fun and saw the streets of London from a totally different perspective

    The tasty sight-seeing alternative
    We only had 24 hours in London and wanted to do something different from the typical tourist traps. This was an amazing way to see so much of London and bars/restaurants we would have never seen before. The clues aren’t difficult to follow, but they aren’t so simple that you’ll be bored. Great experience 10/10 would recommend for people looking to do something a bit different.

    Amazing activity
    Our (small) company did Gourmaze for a team bonding activity as part of our Summer party this year. We split into two teams and raced against each other to complete the maze. We thought the experience was incredible - it's set up in such a smooth and easy to access way, and the clues you get are really fun to solve as a team. We also thought the length of the maze was just right, and the amount of food you get is spot on. We'd 100% recommend Gourmaze to our friends and other small businesses, and we're even keen to try another of Gourmaze's experiences (we did the Talisman Treats maze). 10 out of 10 rating from us.

    Fun for a date
    Really fun experience, picked the dessert option for a date. The team are very responsive when messaging over WhatsApp, the puzzles aren’t too difficult (you just got to be observant) only critique would be a couple of the desserts wasn’t to our liking, and one of them was really small, (but I guess you can’t please everyone) Definitely recommend. I’ll be trying it again soon

    Fun and surprising food treasure hunt
    I did the Time Traveller's Space Bytes with my partner and we loved every seconds of it. Not only we ate good food, we also discovered fantastic places we had no idea about. It is a really fun way to explore London! We'll probably do another maze, it is a great date idea.

    Fun in Soho
    Gourmaze was a new and fun experience and a great way to see a part of London!! I booked the Tailsman quest in Soho for my fiancées birthday accompanied by her two sisters. We loved the challenges and the ability to share the WhatApp directions and riddles. Stopping of for treats also made the experience fun and rewarding. We would have liked a little more food (maybe a main as we were peckish afterwards) but would we would highly recommend if you are looking for an adventure with food in London ☺️

    Really fun! Would recommend to all foodies!
    Really fun experience. The mystery dessert tour was a present gifted to me, I took my sister on Friday and I would highly recommend. The clues were fun to follow, the technology worked brilliantly and the desserts were delicious. I look forward to trying out the other adventures and giving the experience to others!

    Gourmaze is amazing!
    What a great way to spend an afternoon in London! I booked the sweet maze as part of a day of activities for a retirement celebration. There were 12 of us is all, split into 3 groups competing against each other. The concept is great and worked really well. We discovered areas of London we didn't know as well as eating some great treats along the way. What's not to like!

    A rewarding sweet challenge
    This was a great interactive trip. You had to solve clues and were rewarded with a lovely sweet treat at different eateries. You need WhatsApp but it was easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend this if you like a bit of a mental challenge and enjoy sweet treats.

Great fun! My daughter bought me this as a birthday pressie and we had a lovely time spent together. Not too challenging but enough to get the brain working! Easy to use and understand instructions which were really clever. Took our time completing the course with a few pub stops. Looking forward to the next one!

The Taco trail was good fun and a great way to spend a sunny afternoon exploring parts of London you might not normally visit. Bonus is the good food and friendly vendors.

Really well organized. We did the Taco Trade in Shoreditch and even being from London, it was great to walk around the area! Food was amazing and everyone was super friendly we met along the way.

This was the perfect date! So much to talk about and do, and Gourmaze have partnered with some amazing food vendors to give an already fun day even more to rave about because the food stops were delicious!
It's all run via whatsapp and it was so clear and easy to do. Can't recommend it enough!

Four of us did this as an activity for a friend’s birthday and we all loved it! Such a fab way to see areas of London and go down roads/lanes you probably wouldn’t normally. 3 independent delicious Taco restaurants, all delicious. Really fun with fab clues and a great way to get you thinking! Was done so well on WhatsApp, well thought through and fab value for money. Would highly recommend and we’d definitely do another!

What a really clever concept this is! The clues really test you, but in a fun way. You also have a mini history lesson at the same time and get to walk around some of the hidden gems of the city. It's a really fun activity to do as a group and we all had a fab time.

We did the taco challenge and the food didn't disappoint - our faves were the salmon and the prawnstar.

Only change I'd Iike to suggest is giving the closure times in advance of starting the game so that you don't have the added pressure of trying to rush to the venue whilst trying to work out clues!

Thanks for the great feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the challenge and the tacos. We'll definitely consider your suggestion about closure times. Hopefully, you still found it helpful that they're included during the game to avoid missing out. Hope to see you again soon!

I did the Asian street food Gourmaze trail as part of a team building day with colleagues. Overall, it was a great day that took you into areas of Soho that I personally hadn't encountered. We split into two teams, so it was great to race against each other and added a nice element. However, the food spots are labelled as 'hidden' gems, when in fact they were all chains - so this was slightly disappointing. Good food nonetheless!

Thanks for the feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the trail and the team-building aspect. While some spots might have more than one location in London, they're still independently owned and up-and-coming. We constantly assess and update our maze locations to keep them fresh. With such great food, it's no surprise that these hidden gems might already have a following. Hope to see you again soon!

Amazing concept but when you are promised hidden gems and end up in national chains that’s just false advertising

Food stops were NOT good on the Asian trail

Thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear you felt the food stops didn't meet expectations. While some spots might have more than one location, a restaurant is typically considered a chain if it has more than four outlets, which most of our partners do not. We carefully select independently owned and up-and-coming restaurants to ensure a unique experience. We appreciate your input and will use it to keep improving. Hope you'll give us another try!
