What people are saying about Victoria, British Columbia

Great experience overall! App is really cool, and you learn a lot about the city. Most of the highlights of Victoria are there. Great way to have the teenagers playing something with the parents! :) Not too easy, not too difficult, riddles are funny, and the walking time is perfect. Too repeat soon to discover other city.

10 out of 10. We had lots of fun with this scavenger hunt. A beautiful walk discovering the best landmarks of Victoria and while solving riddles with the app we learnt lots of new facts about Victoria. Will definitely do it again in other cities. The app itself is really user-friendly. Fully recommend.

Me and my family live in Vancouver and visited Victoria for the weekend. It was really fun exploring the city with Foxtrail. We had a great time following the clues and got help whenever we were stuck. The app is really cool! We loved that we were able to do the trail on our own pace.

I have tried Explorial in Switzerland following a friend’s referral and thought it would be good idea to try it here - loved it once again. It covered the right spots in a just-right walking time. Hope others can enjoy it too.
