Schöne Idee, um die Stadt eigenständig zu erkunden. Infos zu entsprechenden Sehenswürdigkeiten müssen leider häufig separat gelesen werden, stattdessen poppen nette kleine Geschichten zu völlig anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten auf. Die Antwort für den Kauppatori ist leider falsch (1888 anstatt 1889). Wird für 6,50 € angeboten, kostet beim Bezahlvorgang aber trotzdem 13 €. Wir können das Spiel trotzdem empfehlen

Very informative tour with details of getting to each point. Self guide allows you to view points of interest at your own speed or look at other places nearby. You are in control! Simple to use and activate on the phone.

Good game with great stations. Some of the tasks are described imprecisely, so we needed hints. Nevertheless, a clear recommendation

I found the activity very fun. It is a good way to get to know something about the city, its history and points of interest.

Nice activity. I could roam through the most interesting sites of the city.
