we decided to do this on a whim, and enjoyed it way more than we thought we would. We did it as a couple, a great way to explore the area and if, like us, you enjoy things like escape rooms, you will enjoy the riddles and puzzles on the tour. we will definitely do it again in another city. I would recommend headphones and then you can listen to the text and as you walk from spot to spot.

Very nice to visit the city and let yourself be guided with a simple and fun animation for children and parents

The experience was ok, but frustrating at times with the puzzles. We visited the different sites but mostly just read the information about the place and moved on because we were spending too much time with the puzzles which didn’t really add to the experience. It wasn’t worth the 12€ we spent when we could have just looked up the information ourselves.
