Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 1,279 reviews

Very convenient and saves money and time. Access to the attractions worked without any problems and as announced without queuing. !!! Be careful with the attractions, some are only for adults, eg mini golf ??? Allegedly because alcohol is offered. We found it strange and unfortunately didn't find out until we were standing in front of the entrance. The kids were disappointed.

Check all the attractions well because there is where it says that you have access to madame toussand or the Sherlock Holmes museum and when you get to the attraction they say that it is not true Other than that the quick accesses to what it does include

The pass is very practical and easy to use. Check that it is compatible with your visit. We have allowed us to make some savings which are not negligible.

Easy to use voucher via scanning. When compared to paying separately for each attraction it was value for money.

Easy to use app and good to get a discount on main tourist attractions.
