A great way to explore Bruges on our own! Cracking the codes at each of the location to reveal the history of the site was fun and navigating to the next site meant we could meander through the city taking in its charm. Would definitely recommend as an alternative to guided walking tours!

Via a website we walked the beautiful, interesting route with our mobile phone. The questions were a lot of fun. Not too difficult. And a great way to discover the beautiful city of Bruges in 1 afternoon. We were 2 adults, 2 kids aged 16 and 13 and our Jack Russell. Stopped at the Chocolate Museum on the way. Over an hour in Very nice! The fries museum was disappointing. Not recommended. The dog could not enter both, but waiting is no problem. Plenty to see at a short distance. A round by horse and carriage was a nice touristic addition. We are going to use this way more often for a city trip!

A fun quest that takes you to a few beautiful places. Initially some confusion... after ordering you will receive a few emails from 'GetYourGuide' with links to an app, as well as to a voucher associated with this game etc... You do not need any of these things to play the game . You will eventually also receive a link via SMS, which will lead you to a website (not an app!), where you can play the game. The information from 'GetYourGuide' is probably aimed at physical tours with a guide, and therefore not tailored to this game. Also: the texts in the game are not always correct in sentence structure, and some assignments show that the makers are originally English; so that's definitely something to take into account if you are looking for a word a / h. Duration: about 1h45 min stroll
