Excellent! We had sooooo much fun and saw places we wouldn't have passed otherwise. Some of the answers are difficult to write. Often we knew them but in the app they were written differently. E.g. Lift should be written as left there. Otherwise really great!!

We’ve been to Barcelona before and we still managed to find new places we haven’t seen before using this scavenger hunt. It’s a great way to see the beautiful Gothic quarter. Not at all difficult, just a bit of fun!

Ha sido muy divertido, me lo he pasado genial descubriendo Barcelona con este juego. Lo mejor ha sido descubrir la calle de los chocolates :)

Wir fanden das Konzept sehr witzig und hatten echt viel Spaß!

Excellente activité à petit budget pour toute la famille
