Easy booking, easy to solve, even our 6 year old was able to join in. A great family experience where you can take your time so you can really see the city and not just solve the next puzzle. We'll definitely do it again in the next town

Very fun activity which gets you to see an overview of all the highlights. Great for families with children/teens and for those who don’t need to spend too much time in another church or museum

The app is quick to install, but the questions often have nothing to do with the previous explanation of Siena's history. We missed the common thread and the children (8 and 11) quickly lost interest. In the end, we didn't finish the scavenger hunt. Not recommended.
