We received the quest with a 3 course dinner as a gift. Although Parliament Hill was under construction, we still managed to solve our clues with the internet. The finish was further away from the restaurant than the starting point. The restaurant had our reservation...More

My friends and I have done Urban Quests in Kingston and Ottawa and it was a fun way to discover little known trivia and tidbits about each city. It was great for young explorers and adults alike.
