Overall rating

4.3 / 5

The route is very interesting and the history is very well documented. The only thing not to give 5 stars is that the beginning of it is a bit chaotic since there is no plate under the hotel ventilation, which is a fundamental clue to start the game. There are also, especially at the beginning, quite a few doubts that make you want to quit the game or cheat by looking in Google or asking for additional clues in exchange for experience points. I would appreciate the creator to review it to get the 5 stars !!!

A great way to learn about the history of Madrid and see the old town! Really enjoyed it. We will look for this type of activity in other cities.

Fun way to explore the city at our own pace. Facts were interesting but the best thing about was the meandering route through the old town.

Very fun, although some tracks were difficult and not very logical. We spent a fantastic afternoon with the girls, discovering the city.

Really fun game. Great way to explore to city. Will definitely do other games on my next trips
