Unique and captivating tours of a city full of surprises

Geneva immediately brings to mind the Jet d’eau,  its old town and the city’s international reputation. Did you ever wonder why?

The answers lie all around you as you wander through the city and its countryside – behind the landmarks and hidden in places you may pass by every day.

As you immerse yourself in the city and its beautiful natural  surroundings, let yourself be surprised by the incredible stories that have made what Geneva is today – the smallest of the world’s major international cities.

You will never see Geneva with the same eyes again.

Catherine Hubert Girod 

After many years living and working abroad, Catherine returned to Geneva with her family and rediscovered her city with fascination. She decided to leave her international humanitarian profession and become a Geneva guide in order to share the unique story of a city at the crossroads of local and global history.

Creating and guiding tours also made Catherine realise their potential in raising awareness on Geneva’s stunning natural environment, the ordinary lives of its inhabitants that contributed to the city’s story, as well as societal issues and emerging challenges.

Just arrived or lived here for a while?

There is no better way to appreciate a city then to walk through its streets and discover the on-going story that forges its identity.  

You will become aware of your surroundings in new ways – historically, culturally and socially. 

See you soon!
