A nice little tour of the city at your own pace. You pass the largest points of the old town and are presented with some information in small texts. The round invites you to visit the various buildings, but you don't have to. Unfortunately, some of the tasks are not very clear and you have to use hints to understand what you should do, but this also deducts points. A bit unfortunate. Nevertheless nice tour.

A fun way to explore the city. It's nice that it's not on time, so you can have a nice drink in between if you come across a nice café. What is a pity is that the question is not clearly visible, which makes it sometimes difficult what and how to answer it.

We have just traveled through the city of Ghent with our two little girls aged 13 and 14. They did not see the time pass and remained concentrated almost the entire period. A relaxed, playful and open experience on the city's monuments. I recommend it for a walk with children or grandchildren To test in a group perhaps also Congratulations and good luck to your team
