This was a fantastic and engaging way to see the city. We were able to learn some fun facts about the history of the city and see some sights that aren’t usually part of a general waking tour. Thanks so much, we had a great...More

Visited Amsterdam in September and played with some friends, and it’s a great game with challenging clues! Each clue makes you walk to different places around the city center, familiarizing you with Amsterdam’s streets, and the history they carry. Highly recommend

Thank you for playing! We're really happy you enjoyed it and that you found it challenging. Finding the perfect balance of fun and challenge is tough - we're glad you were happy with the results!

I played this with a friend two weekends ago, and we discovered new things, even though we have both lived in Amsterdam. The props are beautiful and definitely make the mystery seem real. Would recommend for families or companies as well!

I just finished the scavenger hunt with my husband. It was quirky, fun, and a great way to start our Saturday! There was a ton of thought and detail put into all of the puzzle materials; we were very impressed. They weren't terribly hard and...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
