We really enjoyed doing this activity and the children got into the game of solving the puzzles without using the clues. It was our first activity in Budapest and we discovered many beautiful places. The puzzles are easy to solve, the cultural and historical points to read in the game are very interesting but often unrelated to the geographical point where you are. This is what we missed, we would have liked to know a little more about the places of the puzzles. In any case, thank you for this great adventure!

Very nice way to explore the city and tick off the highlights. You can set your own pace completely; where you want to stay longer you can spend more time, if you want to have a drink that is also possible. The game element makes the walk dynamic, so that you do not realize that you are making a lot of meters. The pieces between the various highlights are often very short, so that the walk remains clear. Very much enjoyed, highly recommended!

Everyone got into the game, but for lack of time we couldn't do it entirely.
