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 around DC. I did it before going through the museum, and so by the time I...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 see different parts of DC, but it didn't "make" our visit to the International...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. The whole thing takes about an hour including the stop I made for coffee. But...continued

It is really for kids .... And it was a bit cumbersome. Did not liked it.

It was a fun adventure, I went with a friend who was visiting- I don't know if it's right for pure tourists but as a fun hour to see different parts of the city it's cool. Would have been better if I went during a different season. Summer is rough.

It was an interesting idea because it allows you to walk DC (and it was a beautiful day for that) but I expected more challenges and fun but it was pretty simple and uneventful. Perhaps we shoud have done the inside spy experience. It was okay...continued

It was our annual Girls weekend and I chose to do this fun activity. I'm so glad I did cause we had a blast. I recommend it to anyone and of any age. It was also a great way to see the sights of DC. Thank you Gold Star

My boyfriend and I went on the Spy in the City. We loved it! You have to solve a mission and since he's competitive we made it a competition between the both of us;howeveer ended up solving the mission together. A lot of walking so wear...continued

Our kids, ages 10 & 12, enjoyed using the GPS device and figuring out the clues. A nice bargain with the Goldstar price. We did feel that the instructions were more rigid (time wise) than what we ultimately experienced.

Really interesting...great way to see the city and learn a few things at the same time. Could have been a little longer though!

Spy in the City was very fun - interesting way to have fun around DC. Wish there was more discussion of symbolism and historic facts.

The activities are great for kids but the content (Russian espionage) is a little over a kid's head. Nevertheless, they had fun (8 yr olds). For adults doing this on your own, not as great.

The day started off really good and my sons were excited to participate in the mission. However the equipment malfunctioned after 15 -20 minutes.We called the store and they told us to come back in. The staff checked the machine and we were off...continued

The tour was fun but not super exciting. It would be really exciting for kids for sure. My husband and I enjoyed it though.

This event was good to get you walking around the city. However, it was not engaging at all. You don't even have to travel to the landmark and the GPS automatically gives you the next clue. If you're expecting it to be like a scavenger hunt or...continued

This was a great experience for gadget-loving kids in the 7-12 age range. It didn't work perfectly and it was easy to make mistakes, but it was a fun, hands-on, treasure-hunt-like tour. And just realistic enough to make kids think they are...continued

This was the perfect finish to a visit to the Spy Museum with my 12 year old grandchildren. It was exciting and fun for them as well as
a great "scavenger hunt" type mission searching for designated
sites and clues while seeing famous D.C....continued

This wasn't what I thought it would be. However, it would be great for pre-teens and teenagers who want to explore the city semi-independently. It seemed kinda lame for 30+ something adults. it was interesting, but not super exciting. Halfway...continued
