The game is well researched and the story line is interesting. We really get the feel of medieval period amid the very modern city. The best part is to discover these very old and popular sites which would have taken time to do it on our own and enjoyed more because I traveled to these places without using google maps. Apart from collecting trivia we also ended up drinking coffee at the Café Frauenhuber.

It was an amazing tour.There were so many fascinating stories, the explanation was very vivid and it felt like traveling in time.The tour guide is very knowledgeable and knows the stories in depth and is generally very passionate about history.I strongly recommend this tour.

If you like true crime this tour is the best you can get in Vienna. The guide is a legend.

Great game! A fun way to discover the city, during a short trip as a foreigner!

Great tour! Highly recommended! We had a lot of fun.
