I did this on bike, but I ended up carrying it up some steps at some point. There was also some distance between some of the portals, which I imagine is no fun at all on foot. Watch out for the passphrases for the next mission at the end of each mission.

I did this banner with a friend and my son, and we didn't like it very much. The first problem was that you have to pay attention to the popup message on the last portal of each mission, and press where it says "more" to get a passcode for the next mission. I ended up repeating the first mission to get the passcode. This problem kept cropping up during the rest of the missions, but fortunately there was always one of us behind enough to get reminded by the others to check.

The second problem was that the path isn't the best. Not the worst, but mission 6 overlaps with some portals from mission 1.

Overall, we just didn't enjoy this one at all.

Just in case anyone does the mission and needs passcodes, highlight the line below to reveal them:
