Full description
Explore Cambridge through the eyes of someone living in medieval Britain, under the rule of Tudors. Discover the city’s favorite landmarks by solving clues in an exploration game on your smartphone. Begin at the stunning Corpus Clock, visit some of the top Cambridge college campuses, and marvel at the fascinating Round Church. Play the role of a student at Cambridge who joined a secret society. “The Gentle Chroniclers” fight to preserve books deemed revolutionary and prohibited by the king. Your mission: locate the valuable book, “Call to Uprising” — a volume that a fellow member had hidden before being captured.  You are only one who can find the book before they do. Each riddle you solve will lead you from one place to another, with exact directions, so no need for a map or GPS. Figure out the clues and the secret story of that place is revealed. If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

My 10 year old son and I used this tour to guide us round some of the sights of Cambridge. It was a great idea and a brilliant way to see some places that we wouldn’t have gone to otherwise. Having to solve the clues and doing it at our own pace kept him interested in a way a traditional tour probably wouldn’t have done.

Really enjoyed this experience. I love walking tours and find it is the best way to explore a place. This type of self guided tours allow you to explore at your own pace, on your own or with others and there is potential for even making the experience more fun if you are in a group and decide to compete against each other. For a geek like me, having the change to also go on a journey on a role playing setting is a bonus. Already recommended it to some friends and will definitely be using Questo in future exploring.

It was my first time in Cambridge and I had a great time to let myself guided by the app towards the city. My friends loved it as well.
