This was a lovely tour with a lot of interesting anecdotes about the life in Geneva through history. Alexandra was flexible to adjust the start time cause I was driving from they other side the lake. She also gifted me a Geneva specific bier, to accompany the stories from the tour. I really enjoyed having this summarised view of Geneva.

Géniale, passionnante et enthousiasmante. Quelle privilège d’avoir passé deux heures avec Alexandra. Un niveau de détail et de culture remarquable, une énergie comme on en croise peu. A faire sans hésiter une seconde.

Parfait pour combattre l'isolement de ces jours ! Alexandra est une excellente guide : elle transmet avec aisance et dynamisme sa passion pour l'histoire de Genève. Ses histoires ont toujours une touche de bonne humeur ! Alexandra s'interesse aux questions du groupe et créé une bonne ambiance. A la fin du tour, elle a même eu un très joli détail - une belle surprise - pour nous tous... mais je ne vais tout vous raconter - a vous de découvrir pour vous même ! Merci, Alexandra. C'était un tour inoubliable !

It was a great pleasure to take an excursion with Sasha in Noël times of Geneva. Sasha knows about history, culture, and traditions so much, that we never missed a thirty meters without an unexpected story about religion, Red Cross, or noble people. This was the first time I met Sasha and I hope that not the last one. Sasha's company totally worth your time and attention. She is a bright person I would love to meet her once again.

Nous avons adoré notre visite de Genève avec Alexandra ! Nous avons découvert de très beaux endroits, nous en avons appris beaucoup sur l'histoire de la ville... : une belle matinée riche en paysages, histoire et anecdotes. Nous recommandons vivement ! On ne prend jamais assez le temps de visiter la ville où nous habitons et avec une personne passionnée le temps passe beaucoup trop vite.
