The game is well researched and the story line is interesting. We really get the feel of medieval period amid the very modern city. The best part is to discover these very old and popular sites which would have taken time to do it on our own and enjoyed more because I traveled to these places without using google maps. Apart from collecting trivia we also ended up drinking coffee at the Café Frauenhuber.

Lisa was incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna’s history, was an captivating story teller, and introduced us to parts of Vienna we hadn’t known! We go on ghost tours every where we go and between New Orleans, Paris, Seattle, San Francisco, and Dublin this was the best! Thank you Lisa and we’ll recommend you to all of our friends!

Spontaneously decided to do a puzzle tour, it was very interesting - even for locals.

Great game! A fun way to discover the city, during a short trip as a foreigner!

We thank our nice and very friendly city guide for the great tour.
