What you'll do

A quick walk around Geneva and some personalized tips from a transplant traveler who now calls Geneva home. And of course, every day in Geneva is incomplete without some chocolate! See (and taste) what makes Geneva so special, and explore the city as locals do.

By signing up for this Experience, you take away any fears of missing out, as I've hand-picked the coolest places in town to show you, so you don't have to worry about researching or choosing wrong! Although we'll only visit a few, don't worry, you'll walk away with a long list customized to your trip as a perfect "welcome to the city"!

I can point you in the right direction for where to eat, museums, where to drink, cafes, what to see and where to visit, day trips out of Geneva, etc.). I'm very particular as a traveler myself, and believe Google is not always right. :)

While I won't give away the specifics of the Experience, it can be customized based on the group. Some things we will see include the old town of Geneva (the largest historic town in Switzerland), the alternative scene, the Jet D'eau, a favorite locals coffee shop, the best chocolate in town (and perhaps the world), thrift stores with discounted designer clothes, and more.

And don't be shy, I can take *all* the pictures of you on our walk!

I'm an enthusiastic experience host who is thrilled to meet you and show you a few gems of Geneva!

I've spent time as a Tour Guide in Italy, taking travelers to sites from Interlaken to Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast. I previously opened my home as an Airbnb host while in USA, and I've since lived in San Francisco, Berlin, Florence, Copenhagen, and now Geneva. I've also previously worked in hospitality at Marriott, and love the personal, human experience and empathetically care for my guests.

I'll show you a few sites in Geneva to spark your curiosity and give you starting points personalized to the way you travel, and the specific things you'd like to see and do!

In my spare time, I'm interested in entrepreneurship, responsible tourism, urbanism, and learning about international cultures.

I'm excited to meet you!

Steffan was a friendly and engaging host. If you're looking for a tour that is nonstop historical facts and numbers, this is not for you. If you're looking for a guide that knows the area and can help you navigate your visit and suggest places to go from the experience of a local, you'll love this. It was just two of us with Steffan and we were delighted to have such a personal experience with him.

Thank you a lot! This is a wonderful and unique experience in Geneva. It's definitely one of the best parts in my travelling here. Steffan showed us some beautiful places we would otherwise not find ourselves. We got to taste the chestnut cake and the hot chocolate with very thin cream on the top. Wonderful! Steffan knows Geneva quite well. He shared with us a Google map full of good places that he recommends us to try in Geneva. Very thoughtful! And he has been to many places in the world, so you can learn and know a lot from him! 这次旅行非常开心。Steffan安排周到,非常用心,看到了很多好看的地方,吃到了美食。谢谢Steffan! 期待再相见!
