Here's our look back at the fun, successful experience we had in Antwerp last weekend. We booked the World City Trail scavenger hunt through Antwerp. Booking was very easy, we quickly received the necessary information via email to play the game. From the starting point we went out with the four of us (2 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 10). The puzzles were challenging but easy to solve. Because of the time, we did the scavenger hunt in 2 parts, which was very easy. All in all a very nice challenge to explore the city in this way. We are already looking for the next City Trail! Greetings, family. design

Loved the tour. Just did the basic version which is fine since I was able to use Google maps. Only but if annoyance was had to reload the guide from the email link. It did still keep track of where we were.

We explored the city beautifully. We worked our minds in a pleasant way. Highly recommended
