Unfortunately, we didn't think the scavenger hunt was great at all. It was quite short, it wasn't really easy to get through Cologne and the questions were so difficult that you sometimes had to use google to answer them. We weren't happy at all for the price.

The tour is basically OK. Some puzzles are very easy, others are difficult and the hints do not always help. The sentence structure of the texts is sometimes difficult to understand. You could go to the trouble of improving the reading experience and correct a whole lot of spelling errors at the same time. For the last question, synonyms should also be considered correct. We thought the tour was ok, but it has not caused a storm of enthusiasm.

Link was activated too late, only after we bought a new voucher. Much too difficult questions. Badly worded texts such as poorly translated instructions for use.
