    My 13 years old daughter and me had wonderful time during this activity where we had the chance to visit very interesting points of the city such as the city park, the house of horror, the castle etc and to notice many details. We finally spent 2,5 hours full of entertainment and although we walked a lot in a very cold evening we wanted to finish all the questions. The last question was difficult to find so he had to ask for help and the person who was responsible for this was very helpful. Interesting concept!!!!
