Visit the central Liberty Square, which will bring life to your tour, while the Odeon of Kos awaits you to admire it in its ancient glory. Take a photo of the imposing exhibits of the Kos Folklore Museum, and learn about ancient Antigoras.

The legend of the name and the birth of Kos will take you on a journey. Learn about the mix of architectural spectrums found in multicultural Kos. Admire the Plane Tree of Hippocrates where it is said that the father of Western Medicine used to heal.

See, walk, and relax at the Castle of the Knights. Its incredible history and magnificent views will be the icing on the cake of this tour.

At each stop, learn about the attraction and work on a location-based riddle that can only be solved if you reach the specific location. Use logic, imagination, observation, and team spirit to unlock the correct code and reveal the next destination of the tour.

Nice idea, it could be better developed. The texts contained repetitions and spelling errors, the sites to be seen were not easily identifiable and above all it was not possible to go back in the quizzes once a step was skipped. Too bad about these little things, because it could be a compelling alternative for teens and young people.

Nice simple puzzles will send you a maximum of 5 to 6 minutes walking each time to the most beautiful archaeological sites of Kos. In the meantime you walk past nice shops and cafes to take a break or to browse around. It is a pity that it says from 7.50 euros if this is actually from 15 euros. Bit on the expensive side, for 10 puzzles and a simple app.
