We had a lovely day on this trip. It was hard to stick to the recommended times and we will have to go back to do some of the things we did not choose on this go around. Note, if an "early" lunch is suggested, take it as there are not opportunities to find food till much later than a "not early" lunch would be for us!

This little trip, being my first Guess where trip, was amazing. We didn’t know what to expect but from opening the first envelope we knew we were in for an adventure.
All the stops were very creative and true to the description and actually all stops went above and beyond our expectations.
Plenty to see and do.
Couple of notes:
1/ although this trip didn’t show up in the Travel update list there was one attraction that was closed but there were a couple other options to choose from so we didn’t mind at all.
2/ try to stick to the allocated time cause at the end we had no idea what the other activities were :)
Overall amazing experience!

The recommendations weren't too far from home, which we absolutely loved. It gave us more time to explore! The third stop is 100% my favorite. What an interesting place to do a tour and feel the haunted vibes.
