    Me and my friends had a great time exploring Vancouver with Foxtrail. Even though I have lived here for a few years, I was intrigued by the playful and unique concept - and it did not disappoint! We discovered so many new spots in the city and had a lot of fun solving the different riddles. Would definitely recommend!
