It was challenging and fun to do. Very quickly, we came in a “competitor” mode, where everyone came with good ideas on how to solve the puzzles. We needed the help (lifelines) for many of the puzzles – but that was OK. We really liked that it was not just puzzles, but also gave us some new knowledge and information. The kit in the box was well organized and some of the puzzle was quite hard and some easy. But the most important was that we had a long walk and had fun. It was a good combination of exercise, culture and solving puzzles.

Really positive and educational experience that was at the same time super cozy and a do way to be together (we were 4 pers). Can definitely be recommended

Wonderful afternoon. Exciting tasks that had to be solved and along the way there was interesting information about the celebrities who are buried.

It is an amazing tour with cool riddles and is made with a love for details.
