The first stop was really interesting, however it would have been nice to see inside but no where did it say it didn’t open until 11:00. One of the clues for the scavenger hunt was incorrect as we managed to find an employee that informed us the building it refered to had been moved 10 years ago. We were able to figure it out but the building name is incorrect. Second location but still in first envelope also was interesting but not enough information on sites and no one to ask. Second envelope took us to another location that also was not accessible for viewing but we knew that. Third stop was a restaurant that was very nice, but the other option in this envelope is not open on Monday or Tuesday which was stated in this envelope but should have be advised at the beginning so we wouldn’t have done this on a Tuesday. Our fourth and final stop we almost missed as the road that lead to it had a large sign stating Private Prpoerty No Trespassing if we hadn’t ignored this we would have missed it. Overall had a fun trip but it wasn’t was we were expecting, not sure I would recommend this particular package.

Fun trip!

We did a staycation and had a lot of fun. We explored spots we would not have normally ventured to. A good way to check out Guess Where trips. We are looking forward to doing more!

Amazing Fall Trip

Had the absolute best time with my best friends on this trip - it was spooky vibes but fall ambience, and every stop was a lot of fun to walk around and explore.

A sunny spooky adventure

We went on this trip on a very beautiful
Sunny day in July, so it wasn’t as spooky as it could be, but we had a great time! We never would have found these hidden gems, learned the history of the area and enjoyed our lunch if we didn’t try this trip! It was our first trip with Guess where trips, and we have since gone on two more!

Great views and good food

This trip was one for the books. Very cool and spooky history, we would love to return to the first stop again some day to explore more! The restaurant recommended had great food and a ghostly past.
