If you don't have a precise plan of what you want to see, this is the place to be. You visit the most beautiful sights and are entertained with nice puzzles. There is also little information about the sights. We had a lot of fun.

It was a very fun and interesting way to learn about the city’s history! We especially love solving the puzzles and challenges. A good way to go around the city :)

My guide Flip was a great storyteller and took me to spots I wouldn't have known I wanted to see. A fun afternoon!

Lovely experience and kudos to our guide for providing such a nice detailed explanation about each place!

A great tour, with a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide! Highly recommend!
