    Very exciting tour with interesting questions and information about the city and sights. The questions are not very complicated. I made the Tour alone and had no problems with the Quiz or to find the right places. A great alternative to a guided tour of the city.

    Interessante, spannende Schnitzeljagd durch Coimbra. Man setzt sich völlig anders mit der Stadt und ihren Sehenswürdigkeiten auseinander und nimmt deutlich mehr mit, als wenn man eine Stadt einfach nur so besichtigt!
