The group is split into teams and first they explore the famous and lesser-known parts of Edinburgh’s Old Town in a search for clues relating to their surroundings. Visiting locations carefully chosen to help the group enjoy a flavour of the very best of Edinburgh. Each team is also provided with a digital camera to complete a series of photo challenges for bonus points. Teams are allowed plenty of time to complete the clues without needing to rush between locations. Speed is not important, but good teamwork and powers of observation are essential! At the end, teams return to base to take part in ‘The Showdown’: a big-screen, interactive quiz based on the treasure hunt clues teams have solved. The best team photos are also displayed onscreen. At the end of the quiz, prizes are awarded to the winning team and photo CDs of the event are given to all.
Visit to Edinburgh’s Underground in Mary King's Close. Edinburgh's 18th-century City Chambers were built over the sealed-off remains of Mary King's Close, and the lower levels of this medieval Old Town alley have survived almost unchanged amid the foundations for 250 years. Now open to the public, this spooky, subterranean labyrinth gives a fascinating insight into the everyday life of 17th-century Edinburgh. Reputedly one of the most haunted places in the UK, Mary King’s close will sure to be an unforgettable experience.

The emphasis is on inclusion so that everyone has a chance to shine.
Until recently if you wanted to explore London by boat, you could expect a pretty sedate experience. The experience starts calmly enough, with a Thames Waterman providing a commentary about the bridges and buildings in central London. Then, once you're past Tower Bridge, the skipper of the 12-seater RIB opens up the engine and heads for Greenwich and you'll discover how exhilarating it can be to swoop along the Thames at almost 30 knots, leaving the lumbering traditional river cruisers far behind. A journey along the ancient Thames on the fastest passenger boat on the River.
