Great way to explore this area and learn some history about the place. Puzzles weee a good level of difficulty. Whole thing took about 45 min to complete!

We were on vacation with our grown up kids and played 3 groups of 2 in San Diego. It was a LOT of fun, we all loved it, and it was a very unusual way to explore the city. Highly recommended.

It was fun. We walked around downtown SD learning about the history, while discovering old building that we never knew about, and got to solve riddles too. While on our adventure we stopped and had ice cream and lunch too.
