For me, these self-guided cell phone tours are clearly replacing bus tours in smaller towns. Much cheaper, more interesting, you see smaller streets that you would never have walked into otherwise. Really great and totally relaxing!

It was so much fun doing this scavenger hunt! Calmly at our own pace we strolled around the city discovering its history and its monuments

Easy, clear instructions, cool way to get to know the city. We also found the informative texts to be of added value.

It's a good way to learn about the history of the city. We had a pleasant time.

Loved that all the hunts were close by and easy to access on foot!
