What people are saying about Budapest

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!

Fun and good experience to see the city from particular angles or to stop in places to observe better. Fun quizzes but don't bring with you people who are not dynamic or who don't like riddles / challenges or they will slow you down. To do.
