The scavenger hunt was really a fun tour of the city. Some puzzles are easier than others. We thought it was good that you could take breaks in between or even continue running the next day.

Great fun and explored so much more of the city that we initially would have. Some were hard but great to have the clues to push us along. Great fun for a couple.

Very pleasant and pleasant activity We had made two groups and therefore a challenge It was therefore very fun I highly recommend this activity

Super activity, fun and cultural We were with friends and made two groups, everyone loved We recommend without difficulty

Tricky to start, but once you got the hang of it very good. Great way to see the sights if you are not in a rush.
