    Lovely little app but could have said that there were a number of steps to start the tour which less able bodied people may not be able to cope with. If that had been stated a meeting place, perhaps at the site of the first clue, could have been given as well. Also, one of the clues the escalator was closed (for repair) so didn’t have a chance of answering that one. Overall would recommend it as wouldn’t have visited the places we went through.
