Super freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Guide. Es hat alles problemlos funktioniert. Die Grafik ist sicherlich nicht mehr up-to-date. Und trotzdem war man nach wenigen Minuten völlig in die Welt eingetaucht. Interessant, dass es vor dem Kolosseum mal einen riesigen Brunnen gab. Wussten wir bisher nicht. Super wäre es, wenn es VR auch vom Palatine und Forum Romanum geben würde. Gerade hier wäre es sicherlich äusserst interessant, sich in der Welt von damals zu bewegen.

The software was presented years ago. I have seen that in a documentation. I was expecting upgrades and better handling, as walking backwards should be integrated into an button. However, not your fault, but the developer should do something. Nevertheless, the guide was awesome and the experience unique. Just find an upgraded software and maybe new occolus rift

Für uns und unsere Kinder ein tolles Erlebnis. Wir haben es vor dem Besuch des Kolosseums gemacht. Eine supernette Reiseleiterin hat uns eingewiesen und noch etwas erklärt. Ich kann es empfehlen, besonders wenn man mit Kindern unterwegs ist.
