Explore cities and see places you otherwise wouldn’t visit - We had the best time in Geneva doing this! We saw places we otherwise wouldn’t have seen and you can pause the game to explore the areas you visit during the game. I will definitely do more of these in other cities we will visit!

Loved the experience! - Refreshing way to re-explore Geneva despite visiting many times. Even locals found the experience fascinating and learnt new facts about their home! Only thing I could complain about is being left on a cliffhanger at the end with the storyline. Would definitely try the experience with other cities!

Great way to explore the city - Great way to explore the city. Kept us engaged with tidbits of the city's history. The narrative was fitting given the slight drizzle during our exploration

Amazing experience - This was the #1 thing we did in Geneva. You absolutely cannot beat the value that this experience provides. We saw parts of the city we never would have on a typical tour. And it was all at our own pace. It’s a must do!!!

Questo App - Really cool way to discover the city's iconic sites without having to shell out large chunks of cash on a private tour. Also able to do this at your own pace and stop off wherever you choose along the way. I will definitely do this in all cities I travel to going forward.

location tracking was too sensitive - good idea but need to be able to bypass inaccurate mapping - So we bailed part way through and didn't finish. It was interesting to get to the first few sites and read the history we wouldn't get otherwise, but it wouldn't advance if it didn't detect you were at the next location. GPS was bouncing around and we got hung up. I also didn't like that it didn't tell you the next location (where Google maps might have helped) since it was trying to be mysterious. Just too glitchy in the end.
