It was a great tour and great fun, we were 4 adults and 1 child. The puzzles were well thought out, the solutions were always easy to find, not too difficult but not too easy either. At the beginning at the Stachus there was no indication of a construction site, but we were able to continue without this step. The tour was interesting and informative, towards the end it was almost a bit too much with the additional voice info. But you can also "rework" this at home :-) It would be nice if you also had the "High German" version for the language selection, because the Bavarian version is an additional challenge for "Zugroaster". The round was nevertheless an entertaining pleasure overall, thank you very much for that!

Interesting stories about the main sights of the old town. The puzzles have a level of difficulty suitable for children, not too easy and not too difficult. Some of the puzzle points were cloaked/closed, but that wasn't distracting. It took us 4 hours with breaks to eat and look. Gladly again!
