Nice tour with free time to get to know the city

Overall, we liked this type of city tour. We were able to explore the city, discover important sights and take a break depending on our mood. A big negative point was the descriptions of the sights on the back of the cards - far too much text and unnecessary information! Our suggestion would be to print the information on the cards only in bullet points and beautiful ones would also be small anecdotes from time to time or a funny story about the sight instead of mere facts. In my experience, years are quickly forgotten (2-4 per card are enough), while funny stories / legends remain in the memory for a long time.

Timely dispatch of the documents. Painstakingly designed maps told us a lot about the individual waypoints. I would book it again for any other city.

The scavenger hunt was great. Well worked out and everything was easy to find
