Very dynamic and interesting activity, perfect to do as a couple and get to know the city. It seemed a bit short, maybe add some intermediate point or give the possibility of doing optional riddles, it would be great

Very fun activity, make sure you have suitable walking shoes because there are a lot of uneven roads, slopes and stones.

Very fun, I love the concept. We got to see the most important things at our own pace and when we wanted to.

Great way to visit a city you don't know!!! Do it again!

Very cute to discover the city. Interactive story.
