The starting point was a bit far from our initial arrival point in Valetta (by ferry from Sliema), but this was a very interesting was of visiting the city. This was the first time I went on a self guided tour with riddles and puzzles along the way and I’ll try to do it this way again in other cities I’ll visit. I recommend it if you want an interesting way to explore.

We really enjoyed the self-guided tour. You saw a lot of Valletta and solved small puzzles. So it wasn't "just" a sightseeing tour. You set the pace yourself, and you can also make additional stops. Tip: the first 2/3 stations are outside the city wall and can easily be covered with an e-scooter. To recommend :)

Interesting scavenger hunt with many important sights. Almost all of the puzzles can be solved with brains except for two (Saint Catherine & triton fountain). They want something from you that you can't imagine, I found it kind of exhausting. But with the tips it was ok. I would have liked a function that tells me whether a word or number is correct here. Attention for players, the last monument is currently being renovated and therefore the puzzle could not be solved. Have now received a voucher for another campaign and will definitely use it again.
