    We used this Explorial app for a trip to Montreal and had such a fun time that we plan on doing a scavenger hunt everywhere we travel from now on! What a unique and kinetic way to see the area. The flexibility of the game allowed us to explore the sights we stopped at and even pause the game for an hour to have some food. If you are someone who enjoys a great treasure hunt in new areas or locally, this is a great addition to any trip or excursion!
