This was a great way to see, and learn about the city of Rotterdam. We did a lot of walking and took our time so it took us a few hours. The puzzles are challenging, but not impossible. The way it links into Google maps to help you find your way is really cool. If you do go the wrong way and walk too far (because you didn't pay attention to the guided directions) Rotterdam's public transport network will come to your rescue. Definitely recommend doing this.

Really enjoyable, excellent way to see the sights - bit surprised that the Markthal wasn't included , but it's easy to spot from the cube houses.

Great if you want a quick tour of the city without any restrictions to time.

It was great. Would have loved to get a certificate at the end though :D

This way you can see places you wouldn't go to on your own 😀
