Legends Tours brings history to life through entertaining stories, so after this tour you’ll be sure to have plenty of fun facts to share with others. This tour suits first time travelers, Bruges locals, folks interested in history, and even quickly bored kids.

4.3 / 5

based on 302 reviews

Positive: - The idea of an app-guided self-exploration of a foreign city - The attractive price (compared to a booked city tour) - The presentation of many sights - Exciting puzzles and a lot of additional information about the respective place - The integration of Google Maps to the next place Negative: - The starting point of the tour is too far from the train station or bus parking lot where the visitor arrives (note: at least half an hour's walk away) - Puzzles via camera zoom are a nice idea, but hardly feasible Opportunities for improvement: - Adjust the starting point - Include addresses (tourist information, train station, bus parking lot, etc.) - Name prices for sights Conclusion: Can I recommend the scavenger hunt for Bruges? Definitely! The app is well made for the city, you see and learn a lot from it. And the price is cheap considering that.

Nice way to discover a city. Because you do not have a guide, you decide how long you stay somewhere or whether you also look elsewhere that is not included in the tour. The riddles are a nice change. You also get enough information about the sights without overkill of information. In addition to the well-known tourist hotspots, you will also come to slightly less busy places that are definitely worth a visit. Recommended!
