What people are saying about Zurich

It really is a funny kind of getting more details and funny stories about a city. In this case It was Zürich! Me, the kids (age of 10) and also the grandparents enjoyed following Einstein’s stations a lot. We couldn’t manage to solve the Quiz in the middle.. perhaps someone came help with this (it’s about the House with the numbers and letters on it)…?! It really was fun for the whole family

I was not that aware that Einstein‘s story had that much influence in Zurich. Impressed by the storytelling and how the quest is built up. I know Zurich, but this experience gave me the impression that through Questo, I get more in-depth and a better reference to historical and cultural significance. Loved it!!!

This Questo experience was my first and really fun!An interesting way to walk around Zurich's old town and get to know the history and alleyways. Would be more fun for little kids :) I would recommend it and will definitely try another Questo game in another city soon.

A bit of text, but told in an exciting way. Even as a Zurich citizen there were alleys that I didn't know. You look at Zurich from a different angle. We liked it.

The trail was great fun. Discovered some places that, as a Zurich connoisseur, I have not yet noticed.
