Exciting and fantastic tour of Barcelona

With my 3 grandchildren I was able to enjoy the tour with our tour guide Johannes Fraunhoferhof. Boredom did not even arise in the 3.5 hours. It was just fascinating! I would be happy to recommend this private tour! He showed us his city lively and full of content and we are very grateful to him.

It is a very fun way to see places in the cities, it helps you to be more detailed when observing the monuments. Doing it from an app gives you the facility to do it at your own pace and at the time that suits you best. I highly recommend it

Love exploring new places and the game made it fun to seek out some landmarks we my otherwise have overlooked on our trip. A fun way to spend a morning.

Perfect start to the holiday. Utterly ridiculous fun with lots of drinking games along the way. Make sure you have Google maps! Great value for money

We really enjoyed this hunt through the city. This allows us in one day to know these key points. To be repeated each time you visit a new city.
