Amazing experience! It is clear that Alexandra knows her stuff and that she has spent a good amount of time perfecting this tour around Geneva's old town. I am a local to the region and she still managed to surprise me with historical events, anecdotes and folklores that were previously unknown to me. I would definitely recommend this experience to both tourists that want to discover Geneva, as well as to locals that want to know more about the city they inhabit, I think you'd be surprised by how much Alexandra can teach you!

Great tour around Old Town Geneva packed with insider information, stories, history and lots of interesting spots! Alexandra’s great theatrical skills succeeded in taking us back in time to picture all the events and history milestones that took place around the old town. I walked away with a lot new learned information about the city and interesting conversations as a group as she prompted dialogue and most thoughtful giveaway gift at the end! Thank you Alexandra!
