We solved it in a group of four. It was really fun. The three hours were exactly right for us. If you already have some experience in such games, most of the puzzles are easy to do. If you're doing something like this for the first time, you sometimes have to puzzle a bit, but then the tips help.

On this historical tour through Mainz you walk in the footsteps of the Romans. If you want to experience Mainz from a different side, you should definitely book this tour. The guide was super friendly and competent and has a great passion for the history of his city.

Great leadership. The guide showed us everything very vividly and clearly. We were totally thrilled, would book this tour with the gentleman again at any time and can recommend it without reservation.

It was a really great experience. We had a lot of fun and would book it again. We certainly wouldn't have seen some corners of Mainz. Many thanks to Laura.

Was a great experience. We had a lot of fun, especially since we were two teams - men against women
