From the order to the implementation of the city rally, everything went wonderfully. The delivered box with the cards looks very valuable and the tasks are easy to perform. We were in Cologne and had to open the envelope once to set up a Christmas market because the destination with the solution was blocked off. During the rally you walk through streets and alleys where you might not have gone on a normal tourist visit. So all in all it was a great day with lots of information.

The idea is just great that you can go yourself. No boring guided tour, but background knowledge and work out yourself. We all enjoyed it. In addition, carefully packaged and shipped quickly. And it's sustainable too. What more do you want? Gladly again :)

It was an entertaining walk through Kaiserswerth. If you got stuck with a puzzle, you could request help and a viewpoint from the next station in the game. Very well done.

Wunderschöner Friedhof und unterhaltsames Spiel mit leichten Rätseln und Teamwork

Very entertaining and varied, full recommendation.
