I played this game on the 2nd day in Venice with my 11 year old son. These types of games are extremely attractive for children and allow them to get a sense of the most important routes and attractions abroad. If during the route we want to enter and visit attractions, we really have to count on twice the time, but it is more interesting. It is worth it, not being a guided tour, it is a defined route that helps to walk with a purpose. For children over 10 it is an ideal tour.

Pleasant way to explore the city in a different way. Above all, you can do the tour at your own pace and get a lot of the city. Booking and how to start is well described and you can start right away.

We really enjoyed this style of self tour, which helps you see all of the key attractions whilst being a fun challenge to solve the clues. We’ll keep doing these in any future city we visit.

An original way to discover details that otherwise we would not have noticed. Solving the puzzles was fun, especially for my teenagers. Convenient to pause and restart when you want.

Very good way to discover the city and motivate children to walk
