    Excellent idea

    The idea was excellent, even if between the stages of the route, one that included the existence of a bookshop or library, it had no obvious response since the place was closed at that house and the sign did not give any clues, but for the rest, a lot of fun.

    Was ok just confusing

    The site seeing aspect was good we saw a lot we wouldn't have normally, however after the second riddle the directions got confusing, it should tell you that a break will be coming up after clue no. as when we took a unscheduled break it then messed our time up. By the end of the game we were frustrated and exhausted. At least it lead us near old Rome where our evening Colosseum tour was which was handy.
