Great idea, so much fun! It is so much better than the classical city tour with a classical city guide! Interesting story, interesting places. It was exactly what I need in a new town: to visit some interesting places related with the city, to find out something about them and not to be bored in the same time. I will play your game in the next city, for sure!

Our guide, Anne Lene, gave us an excellent three hour walking tour around Oslo. She was very knowledgeable and great company. I would recommend her!

Enjoyed it found out things I never expected to about Norway and saw some fantastic things we wouldn't have normally seen

Nice tour, you can see the most important sights in a short time. The German translation would be great.

Great tour, really enjoyed! Wealth of information!
