I took my kids (13 & 8) on this adventure. We are a Geocaching crew and this was very similar. They enjoyed it so much they want to do it again.You only need to buy one if you go as a group...so its well worth the 1/2 price ticket.

My family (two parents and two teens) moderately enjoyed this activity. We purchased two tickets for the four of us which was fine. We would have been very disappointed if we had purchased four tickets because each ticket comes with a GPS device...continued

Almost fun, but seemed a little too easy and a little too short.

This is a lot of fun. That said you have a choice of following 2 different leads and as this is outside you should consider that if you have children.

Fun way to spend an hour around the Penn Quarter with my 13 year old daughter. The GPS device worked very well and provided a "realistic" spy experience. Good for both visitors and DC residents.

You get an electronic device that gives you instructions and knows where you are. Several people could share one devise.

We used two devises - one for each ticket. Both malfunctioned in the middle of the event. So, we really can't rate it....continued

Spy in the City is a great way to take children ages 8-15 through a portion of the Penn Quarter in Washington DC. We saw the Old Post Office Ford Theatre Ben Franklin statue. It gives the kids a focus and so they enjoy walking around and...continued

What a great time we had: grandparents and two grandsons, ages 7 & 8. We loved the walking, the exploring, the messages that came in on the GPS "just for us". We split up with each grandparent accompanying a grandchild, and we easily heard all...continued

This is a GPS controlled "Spy Adventure" around the area of The Spy Museum. We did the one-hour version, and the 13-year old I was hosting said it was one of his favorite things. It took us somewhat over an hour because we had difficulty solving...continued

The GPS systems were pretty old. I could not figure out how to go back to read prior instructions. It often told us to go to a location but the item we were looking for was a block away. The headphones we received didn't work and the device was...continued

Cute idea - and fun for the kids (would not take a child older than 12 or so).

Fun for kids, good to walk around outside. Would have liked to go even further afield.

This was a good time and a little goofy for two adult women. It's definitely appropriate for children, and it would be more fun the more people you have. Another idea would be to have competing "teams" at once. It's a fun little excursion, kind of...continued

This was very fun. They give you a interactive GPS unit you you go around town chasing a spy. There was one flaw in the cross street of one location but you could still see it if you looked and then screen was not as responsive as it could have...continued

We got rained out, but it was a blast. They also had an amazing spy opt tour in the building and offered us to trade tickets in to tour museum.

Great opportunity to interact with your family members. If you have young children, bring them with you, I bet they will like it.

I really thought this was fun. We got one device for three people (we all wanted to stay together. If you can have two groups of at least 2, it could be fun to race. It's fun to walk around DC and look at things in a different way. I think this...continued
