This audio guide was so fun and informative. My trip to ghent was made wonderful thanks to the beautiful storytelling by the guide. I could follow everything on my own pace and enjoy all the places at my convenience. It's the best 5 euro I ever spent in my life.

Very nice puzzle/treasure hunt that allowed you to get to know the city well. The tour was varied, easy to do at your own pace and the questions/puzzles were fun. Not too difficult either. Very nice to explore the city this way.

Great, although the riddles were easy, it was really interesting the story bits it had.

With the right app and tips you can go a long way in Ghent. It was doable and fun.

Good all round fun to learn about Gent, enjoyed the riddles.
