we started this treasure hunt in Castel Sant'Angelo, at first we didn't understand anything, there was a puzzle to compose but we didn't know how to do it, so we wrote on WhatsApp to the get your guide staff and they replied immediately, we I understood that you have to write the numbers in order and not move the puzzle boxes and from there our hunt started, we made puzzles, guessed riddle etc. etc. we liked it a lot and I would gladly do it again, the only advice I would say is to give a bit simpler clues especially that of the church, x the rest was fantastic

Very nice tour! You see a lot of places you wouldn't get to otherwise :) The puzzles are a bit tricky, but really doable for an adult. You should pay attention to sturdy shoes, we were at least 3 hours on foot.

What an amazing experience! I loved that we went to some beautiful spots of the town that we wouldn’t go otherwise! Totally recommend!

A little hard for teenagers but allows you to discover some nuggets that we would not have seen on our own To do!

Wonderful guide, amazing sights and beautiful weather in October.
