Hi Adventurers! My name is Paul and I originally hail from Scotland. I’ve lived in London for 7 years now and I’m always coming across new and exciting things in this glorious city! I design trails as well as escape rooms – so I am a very puzzley person! Play my City trail to discover hidden gems and beautiful secret gardens in the square mile. London – especially the financial district of the City, can be very busy, so unearthing a few calm areas is very exciting!



Hello there! My name is Julia, born and raised in Madrid. I am a traveller who loves to discover the uncrowded, hidden gems during my trips and I would love to show you those places in my city. Walking narrow streets, tasting the local Madrid, learning about the history and literature through the stories.

Hello beautiful travellers and locals! I am Miguel, the creator of one of your incredible options for an immersive gamified experience in Faro, the capital of Algarve, in the south of Portugal. I am a biologist and traveller that never goes to a city unless I get the chance to explore its hidden small streets, old buildings and get among its inhabitants and local culture, away from the most touristic routes. Although I am a northerner in this beautiful small country, I am lucky to live and work in the prettiest part of Faro for several years now and I got to know it very well. So, I want to share the best of it with you and hope you can see this town like I do – with passion!



Salut! We are Deana and Pascal, both artists in love with all things to do with art in public space. We’re from Slovakia (Deana) and England (Pascal), working in music and visual art. Enjoy our discovery walk in Prague’s art district!

I have been dreaming up this game in my head for some years now, so I’m very excited to show you around my beloved neighborhood of Born in the stunning city of Barcelona— a destination that SO many visit, but so few actually get to know. I hope you’ll enjoy my game “Barcelona: Born to be Medieval!” and if you want to grab a vermut afterwards, just let me know! Saludos, Rae

Hi there! We’re Dora and Adam, two Budapest enthusiasts, born & raised! We also love games, puzzles and any kind of brain-teasers, whether a cryptic ad in the metro or the latest season of Sherlock.

In recent years, Budapest has become home to many activities like escape rooms or board game cafés, and we hope that our Budapest’s Castle Hill trail will be a nice addition to this trend!

My name is Bernhard and I was born and raised in Salzburg. I have lived also for some years in

in Austria and I think because of it's variety also one of the best towns to live in.

explore new things. Play my Secret City Trail to discover hidden gems and beautiful places in Salzburg.



Servus! My name is Theo and the pretty girl on the left is my dog Bella. I was born and raised in Austria, I enjoy good puzzles – and I’ve always loved to show my friends from abroad.

Being an avid traveller myself, I know that the best way to get to know the place beyond all the clichés is to find a local who will show you nice spots that you can’t find in guidebooks – including some nice places to enjoy the local cuisine and drinks.
