The puzzles were very good and it helped us get to know Strassbourg better. Only the fact that you had to download an app to play the scavenger hunt bothered us a bit. Otherwise great experience and highly recommended.

Definitely recommend, beautiful tour of the Alsace region with sufficient time in each area. I would also recommend adding a fun activity to this tour.

Strasbourg can be explored in a very short time with the self-guided scavenger hunt & the city tour! Plan enough time.

Laurent was a wonderful guide and the tour covers a lot of ground in a day. Loved every minute. Highly recommend!

A fun and alternative way to visit the city in a short time.
