Questo is a real-life city exploration game, offering mission-like tours which you can play.
By following clues and solving riddles, you discover new places around the world, while finding out their hidden stories. These are all part of what is called a ‘quest’, which are tours in form of missions of discovery that teleport you inside a fictional story where you’re the main character.
The missions will take you to the must-see attractions in the places you visit in your city or while traveling.
The app received the Best Travel App award at eTravel Awards 2017, and it was also rewarded by Booking.com, in 2018, for its significant positive social impact.
Questers like to describe the game as ‘a mix of treasure hunting, city guide, escape rooms, race around the world, and free walking tour’.
Whether you travel or you’re a local looking for things to do or things to see in the city, you can find a tour (quest) that suits your interests. One day you can save a princess trapped in an ancient castle, the next one you go to the year 3200 and protect the present.
You can choose between outdoors quests or indoor quests in castles, museums, villas and hundreds of other places.
The quests are perfect for couples looking for new things to do together, families with children who are eager to explore, teenagers who want to have fun in new places or solo travellers in search of adventure and sightseeing.
All the quests are built either by a local insider or an experienced tour guide and include both must-see popular attractions, and hidden places (restaurants with local cuisine, authentic craft workshops, neighbourhood bars, leisure areas and many more), which only locals usually access. You can be sure your trip is completed with authentic experiences.
These tours (quests) are available in 35 cities from 6 countries of Europe, with many more ready to launch. If you visit the following cities, it’s good to know that you have Questo waiting for you there: Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Vienna, Budapest, Florence, Rotterdam, Breda, Linschoten, Tilburg, Utrecht, Den Bosch, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Sibiu, Timisoara, Brasov, Iasi, Sighisoara, Alba Iulia, Bacau , Constanta, Baia Mare, Cisnadioara, Craiova, Bistrita, Slobozia, Bran, Deva, Comana, Sinaia, Calarasi.
