We have just traveled through the city of Ghent with our two little girls aged 13 and 14. They did not see the time pass and remained concentrated almost the entire period. A relaxed, playful and open experience on the city's monuments. I recommend it for a walk with children or grandchildren To test in a group perhaps also Congratulations and good luck to your team

It was a really enjoyable experience. We arrived late to Ghent, which was not what we planned, yet thanks to the game we were able to finish the whole tour in about 2 hours all of this while solving riddles and having fun.

only had some trouble opening the activity but otherwise a good experience!

Interesting information about the city, nice puzzles, we had great time.

It was nice, with my boyfriend we really liked this playful discovery.
