We really enjoyed our tour with Kareem. We were running very late and got off at the wrong bus stop. He was incredibly patient waiting for us. He took us to a beautiful photo opportunity before the sunset and took a lovely family photo for us. He generally made us feel very welcome and well taken care of. He dropped us off in a place where we had very good dinner options and we were able to have a tasty dinner for a reasonable cost. We got a great overview of the city without walking our feet off.

Hakim was a great guide and a helpful person, always keen to take photos of passengers which made the ride a memorable one. The tour was absolute value for money. The tuktuk was very clean and can accomodate a fondue and drinks on demand. I warmly recommend.

Amazing personalized experience. Enjoyed the electric Tuk Tuk tour with Karim around Old Town Geneva. Wine, music, and a unique way of seeing the sites and hearing the history. Definitely recommend this tour.
