deși locațiile din quiz-ul la care am aplicat sunt în cartierul meu, am avut provocări faine!

Describtions of the way were not that clear and well needed the hints and maps a lot of times. Once the hint wa in romanian and therefor quiet useless for us.. Also it would be great to have a picture of the solution after you skip the challange to still find it and have a look. Overall, we would still recommend the tour, since the stories were really interesting!
