What people are saying about Netherlands

Lovely way to walk through the city. We had 2x teenagers in our group & they enjoyed taking part. We saw lots of details that we wouldn’t have noticed on a normal city walk. I liked that it wasn’t as formal as a tour but we learned about the history for Utrecht through the game. Recommended! Will look for this kind of thing elsewhere!

The game through the city was a lot of fun, because you don't just "just" wander through the city, but also get to know it in a playful way. The directions were sometimes not very clear, but you could always get a more detailed description or a tip if you got stuck. Overall, the game is highly recommended for everyone.

Ben was a great host - the game was challenging enough to require some thought but not too difficult for us to give up. Most importantly, we saw lots of Amsterdam as we were doing it! Recommended.

Das Date hat mehrere unterschiedliche Level und Themen. Es ist für jeden was dabei. Lohnt sich aus unserer Sicht auf jeden Fall.

Es war spannend und gut gemacht. Eine witzige Art den Urlaubsort zu entdecken.
