What Our happy Customers Have to Say

We’re teachers at a private school and we initially booked the Secret Sydney trail for our students to get to know the city better. In the end, the teachers also joined in the fun cause there was so much about our beloved city that we don’t know! Excellent job, Adventure Clues for keeping us on our toes!

John Lim

This is a really fun way to see parts of Sydney that you probably otherwise would have no idea even existed. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!! Thankyou for a really fun morning for #TeamChrispie

Chrispie

It was the most enjoyable way to explore Sydney at you own pace with a friends. Would defiantly try another trail. 10/10.
