Great way to see the city from a different perspective. Only the time specification of 1.5 hours is not realistic from my point of view! We 2 adults and 3 kids (all 12) had to stop after 2.5 hours of 8 challenges! It was a real shame. Some directions are unclear, for example, go down the street - which direction???

Very nice to explore the city. I was stupid enough to buy 2 tickets. That is unnecessary. At one point I was asked if I wanted to take a picture of the trip. After I did this I couldn't get to the walk anymore. It is now working again. So I have to finish it again later.

In the beginning you go wrong on the road sign, but if you know where to go, you can continue playing there. Look and read the assignments carefully otherwise it will not work properly. It's fun and very good to play. And also nice, don't talk too loud because there were more travelers playing the game in the area.
