So insightful and fun to do, a little tiring with all the walking so needed to take a few breaks but it was great to see so much in a day. Also, really love the fact that we could play this offline!

We loved exploring the city of Geneva with this exploration game. The puzzles are fun and we had a real good time. We also enjoyed the historical elements.
