What a really fun and immersive way to experience Manchester! Learn some of the history of Manchester and the remarkable Alan Turing... and it's rather fitting the game features live puzzles on-location, and is full of fun facts... all from the Questo app! We had a blast, thanks.

Super fun tour that lets you get to know Manchester better. There are still a few mistakes in it, so the system calculates some answers wrong that are correct. And towards the end the directions get a bit complicated. But well worth it up to two thirds.

May 29, 2022

Directions were very poor, meaning we spent far too long on each stage and ended up giving up and doing something more interesting about a third of the way through. The same facts about Turing were repeated again and again as if just filling up space and the "story" was beyond weak. Overall, largely a waste of time and money.
