Great fun! Made 2 teams and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Activities challenging but not impossible. Excellent way to learn more about the city. Wish there were more cities available. Great value for money.

Very interested and entertaining, you learn a lot about consistency. Above all, the idea with the pictures is nice and you really have to work hard to solve the puzzles. I can recommend it.

My children were delighted with this aquarium where you can create your own fish, it's great fun 🐬🐬🐬🐬🦈🐟🐠🦞🦭🐚

A little too long for us (children, very hot). Probably not under other circumstances. We had fun and it was informative.

Very exciting tour with a high fun factor, definitely recommended.
