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... 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.

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 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... 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,... 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... continued

Wasn't sure how good it would be and was a hot day so sceptical kids would make it round. They loved it however and wanted to do the other tour as soon as they finished

We had a fun time. Informative but not at all dragging.
