Very good activity that can be done with family or friends. A beautiful walk, a better knowledge of the history of the city of Geneva and interesting puzzles. The possibility of playing in teams adds interest for teenagers and the fact of not having a time limit allows them to take advantage of each location

Great activity both to discover emblematic and super beautiful places (very good photo spots), while learning more about the history of the city (very interesting facts!). When you don't know where to go (even when you know how to notice), this is the perfect choice!!

We really enjoyed this despite all the walking involved. The challenges were unique and not so easy to solve. Good way to view a lot of ground and see some history of Geneva. Only downside is there was no transportation ever found, even at the end.

We had a lot of fun and learned many things about the city. I would definitely recommend it!

Super fun and educational way to get to know Geneva better.
