My son loved this and so did his parents!! We earned the rank of Spy Master. Do this in the morning if expecting hot weather. We started at 9 AM and by 10:30, we were soaked thru from the heat and humidity. Other than that, it was great!!!

Our family did this together using 1 gps unit. It was fun to work together, but my kids, who are techies, found this gps antiquated and frustrating. At one point, the... continued

The idea was really fun. We should have planned to spend more time than we did. The GPS was fun to walk with, but we had problems finding the locations they wanted.

This was a fun way to be outdoors and walk around the city. I'm glad that I bought a discounted ticket through Goldstar as it wouldn't have been worth the retail price. Ideal for non-DC residents.

Cute idea. I'd definitely say more for kids than adults. A couple of the puzzles were good (decoding using a landmark, finding a number on a building, etc.) and others... continued

My 11 and 13 year olds had a blast but here are my (small) complaints:
1. I registered for a 9am pick up and the Goldstar voucher confirmed that I could pick up the GPS... continued

Spy in the City at the Spy Museum in Chinatown
I did spy in the city, which is an interactive activity. You get to be a spy. You are given a GPS which allows you to... continued

The spy in the city tour was big fun. I did it as a birthdayparty with 5 kids and it took us about an hour and a half. They were very exited and I think it was the first... continued

The Spy Museum and Spy in the City experience were great! Now my companion and I are more paranoid than ever but if that's the price of so much info and fun so be it. ... continued

This activity offered by the International Spy Museum is a interactive, self guided tour around the city. You are given a personal GPS device that takes you on a... continued

This is a complete and absolute rip-off. The equipment they give you doesn't work or is so slow that you spend most of your time standing around waiting for it to load.... continued

This was definitely a great experience. I went with a group of four people. We ended splitting into two teams of four. I wish we could have started at two different places so that we weren't at the same locations at the same time. Great date idea.

We had a great time, it was a nice first glimpse of that part of the city. You don't need to get a GPS for each person, 1 would have been fine for the two of us.

Fun, but geared toward kids. We enjoyed it anyway, in a kind of silly way. Also, one of our COBRA spy devices malfunctioned (actually a handheld GPS device). ... continued

Good idea for the spy museum. Although, I thought I might be questioned by some security police in the area because you kinda look suspicious while doing the spy course... continued

I didn't realize that this was not a whole package, I somehow missed this information in the excitement of reading 1/2 price. It was an okay adventure, we were able to... continued

I recommend doing this as a complement to the Spy museum itself. On its own there really isn't much to it. You walk around a few blocks and answer some easy questions.... continued
