It was a good way to wander the streets of the city Bologna and see key sites and pass interesting local streets. Spotted some great cafes, gelato and alleyways along the way. Construction impacted a couple of sites so you could not stand where you were expected to be, but you still get to see the building and just fail the puzzle. Excellent concept to get younger people more eager to walk with less complaints. Would probably need some stops which are looking at souvenirs or lunch/coffee stops. Otherwise, we had to Google options and most recommendations were away from the area where the walk took us. Over all well done.

This was a great way to explore the town in our own time and without missing things. There was so much to see. We never would have seen these things on our own. It did take us a couple of sites to actually figure out what we were doing with the app, but once we figured it out, we were on a roll. I would definitely recommend for the price, and I will use these again when travelling.

In these 2-3 hours you have seen everything. Some of the puzzles are difficult because the instructions do not match the solution. Equally important, don't click the 1/2/3 wheels for no reason, as these are the clues and points will be deducted for doing so. Just a change from a normal sightseeing tour!
