Excellent way to visit Boston, specially with kids. Instructing and entertaining. We have walked, puzzled, learned.... and we purchased a second one the next day!

It was just meh. I wish the clues were more clever - were a group of smart people, but needed hints for a few and even with clues we needed to guess. (The park street t station and union oyster house). I’m glad it was so cheap, but it was super disappointing

The game was neither too easy nor too hard. I thought the amount of walking was just right. I was happy to learn more about Boston. I would skip ot change the story elements and add the option to try food/experiences from local proprietors like I did to inhanse my experience.

We loved this game. It was easy to use and showed us new places that we would not have even noticed if not for this. We were able to have a drink in the oldest operating pub in the U.S. We highly recommend it and will definitely use it again in a different city!
