We liked the riddle tour through Bologna because we came to many places that we might not have discovered. We also encountered some peculiarities. Unfortunately it was only in English. So we didn't understand making and couldn't solve some puzzles.

This was amazing!! Different way to learn about this city! We walked to so many streets and learnt things that we wouldnt have the chance otherwise. We were impressed from the quality of the application! Good job guys!

Great way to explore the City, some riddles are hard, but that is part of the fun. The story is also quite nice! It took us with a small break around 3 hours, tho.

Great trip! Felt little bit like an escape room, just in the city. Very sweet story and nice quests! Would definitely do it again! xoxo

Nice game for the discovery of Bologna and its secrets. Too bad it's only in English
