Decided to try it out, downloaded the map on my device and went for it. The concept is novel and original...and it’s free entertainment for the adventurous. The map does not conform exactly to the real terrain and you may find yourself a bit disoriented...More

Friendly guide, but what was supposed to be a Dutch tour, became Dutch & German. Every explanation took twice as long and it wasn't a fast paced tour to begin with. The lights were pretty and some even quite ingenious, but nothing truly new or...More

The walking tour at night is very entertaining mostly due to the bars and cafes. As for the light show it's a joke. There is a lite yellow arrow in the pavement and some blue eyes that helps you navigate your tour. Go straight to...More
