It is a very fun way to see places in the cities, it helps you to be more detailed when observing the monuments. Doing it from an app gives you the facility to do it at your own pace and at the time that suits you best. I highly recommend it

A great experience . I was going with us and it is very difficult for them to walk for a long time. This kind of experience helps them stay focused and want to keep looking for clues ... explore what's left ...

Great way to see Barcelona from a different perspective. Probably works best at nighttime, thus saving you the walking under the summer’s scorching sun!

Good way to discover the area. At one point the guidance for the route was off, but we found the way back on track.

Great exploration tour. You see corners that you would otherwise not have discovered.
