What you'll do

Discover the hidden part of Geneva!
We'll take you on a tour off the beaten path, starting from the city center before diving in the alternative neighborhood of the city. We'll give you insights about places that are missing from travel guides and bring you to hidden spots that even most locals don't know about.
The tour will last around 2-3 hours, depending on how much time you have! We'll walk everywhere so you don't have to pay for public transportation and we'll stop at any time if you want to take pictures (we know that having good social media material is essential).

My two friends (Grégory and Pierre) and I are young locals from Geneva ! We were born here and are passionate about our hometown. We believe that our city has much more to offer than the cliché sightseeing tour and we would love to show you the hidden gems of Geneva. ✨

Pierre, Grégory and I have met in secondary school and have been friends ever since. We are now 19 years old and we love to hang out and travel together. We speak English, French and German and we are always up to connect with tourists in order to share our different cultures and lifestyles.

Where you'll be

We'll leave from Bel-Air, the city center's hub, before walking next to the Rhône river, often stopping by interesting spots. Then, we'll cross the Rhône on a bridge from which you'll get an amazing point of view. We'll carry on by following the Arve river where you'll get the chance to explore a neighborhood that few tourists ever go to. Our tour will end on the Place de Neuve, from where you can easily reach the old town or our starting point.

Treat yourself with this super cool city tour. I think it is a perfect way to deal with the lockdown. Thibaud is very nice, kind, respectful and fun! He knows all those special places in Geneva that not even my partner that lived here for more than 5 years knew they existed! We walked a lot but even a slow walker like me enjoyed it a lot! Thibaud recommended us so many places to go that I hope I will remember all of them. Also, Thibaud is swiss. So, in this city where foreigners and locals don't really mix, it is nice and interesting to meet a real swiss and learn a bit more the local population and how they think, what is important to them, etc. I was also nicely surprised of all the little details he had with us like bringing hot tea and chocolates. Honestly, what are you doing this weekend? You should be booking this incredible city tour with Thibeaud! (PS: Thibaud never took off his mask, so he was very respectful on that side and that was also very appreciated.)

A very interesting tour theough and around Geneva where you can visit those spots where locals go and while tourist usuaslly either pass by or never see them at all. Descover the Geneva of the „Genevans“.

Gregory was my guide, and he was absolutely THE BEST! We didnt go to the old city really at all, every story we heard was super unique and interesting. You absolutely couldn't get this from a guide book. Gregory gave us great insights into Swiss life, and asked us to contact him if we needed anything whilst in Geneva. Such a good experience. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
