    What they say about us and our team building activity in Edinburgh and other cities

    We did a City Hunt through Budapest with 27 colleagues. It is a great way to discover the city and was much appreciated by all participants. Pavol did a great job as our guide and got everyone enthusiastic to compete (even those who partied the night before)Our entire group had a lot of fun, so would recommend for sure�

    Had a great City Hunt through Luxembourg for our team event with about 20members end of April. For people who are new to Lux this is a great way to explore the city, and even for locals like me- I discovered plenty of new things I wasn’t aware of and just walk past every day without paying attention to.The fun activity was great too allowing us to be creative as a group �and taking fun photos.I would highly recommend the city hunt as a team event, especially for people that are newcomers to a company (for teambuilding) & to a new city ( to get to know all the whereabouts of the town).

    We did a teambuilding cityhunt in Berlin this week with 12 members of staff. Divided into 3 teams, it was great fun and friendly competition. An interesting way of seeing some of the main sights of the city. I would definitely recommend this to anyone hoping for a fun-filled team building event.

    We had a team gathering in Paris with 19 people. For evening activity, we took a City Hunt. Divided into 3 groups, we had a lovely time walking around Paris, looking at some interesting historical moments / monuments. Some people said this would be a nice activity in all the cities we'll be having our team gatherings.We liked, especially, that the hunt consisted of walk, sightseeing and a bit of brain exercise.

    We were a group of 20 persons holding a team meeting in Prague and were looking for a teambuilding that would combine a fun activity where we would also get to see the highlights of the beautiful city of Prague. After a full days meeting the team welcomed a break to get out and stretch their legs. We split into four small teams, were provided a brief by the guide on the activity before venturing out to find the hidden pieces of the puzzle. It was a great teambuilding experience, relaxing and fun; the best way to explore the city by foot and discover some of the city's amazing history and sights. We highly recommend the City Hunt!

    We host large study abroad programs and this was a excellent way to keep them interested as they learned about the city. The guide was nice and informative, then the students got a chance to explore on their own all the while learning the history of the centre area of the city. The teachers as well felt it was a great team building for them. Definitely worth it if you do not want a traditional tour.
