The scavenger hunt was really cool. We found it a bit too heavy on numbers and letters. The puzzles could be made more varied. However, the tour was very well designed and I think we would not have walked past some of the sights if we had not booked them. Overall it was a lot of fun. :) Except that we couldn't even solve a puzzle because it was absolutely complicated.

Fun and informative and really covered the old town! It's good for people who like riddles with numbers and letters. Might be challenging if you aren't good at those type of activities.

The tasks were fun, but hard to understand first starting place...what do you want? We didn't really understand when we got points deducted. Then it got easier. Fairly long walk.
