It has been the highlight of the holiday so far. Kids loved it, what a nice way of discovering places and knowing facts! Hints and a very well thought quiz with a background story entertained us for 2.5 hours...better than hiring a guide!

We went on this game-tour on our own pace, we had stops for photos , lunch , Cafe any time and the riddles were well designed . Super!

It was very entertaining. Because there was no time limit, breaks and visits to the sights could be easily integrated.

This was so cool to do at the beginning of our city trip! We already had a view of the beautiful city! Top!

We enjoyed following the clues and visiting other points of interest in the process.
