The first half was really interesting and we enjoyed being guided around to parts of the city we would otherwise not have discovered. My friend and I needed each other to figure out some of the clues, so it's a good team-building exercise. It started raining, so we ducked into a pub about halfway through; it was nice to have that flexibility. After that I found the journey involved a lot of backtracking and didn't really show us much more of Birmingham. I thought it was really curious that the game cost 4.99 per person if you paid in pounds, about 10 if you paid in euros, and a whopping $18 if you paid in American currency, so try to pay in sterling if you can! It was hard to get started. We hadn't realized we'd need to download an app and open an account just to go on one tour, but eventually it worked out. Questo's team responded quickly to our questions.

Bit silly, but good fun, and it made us go to parts of Birmingham we wouldn't have visited otherwise.
