Questo, the platform for interactive phone-guided tours, partners with Porto Secret Spots to create the first romantic city exploration game and tour in Porto and Portugal.
Porto Secret Spots is one of the most innovative tour operators in Porto and the first travel business from Portugal to create a phone-guided tour using the Questo platform. The team behind Porto Secret Spots is made out of city dwellers creating one-of-a-kind experiences for travelers and locals. From climbing the most exciting bridge in Porto to discovering multiple museums, they offer a wide range of experiences.
The city exploration game and tour of Porto created with Questo is going to take travelers on a romantic adventure. Couples will discover clues and stories that will immerse you into the fairytale atmosphere of one of the most charming and romantic places on Earth.
Pedro Pardinhas, the founder of Porto Secret Spots, commented, “When we learned about Questo, we thought it was such an interesting way to learn about the city. You can do it at your own pace, and all you need is a phone. The riddles/challenges invite you to look past the obvious and learning becomes a game."
The Questo platform helps tour operators all over the world to create new revenue streams by offering private, interactive, and digital tours to their clients, which are available 24/7 and don’t require a tour guide. Travelers and locals use the Questo mobile app to visit attractions and discover local stories as if they are involved in missions. On each mission, they must solve clues, puzzles, and riddles in order to continue on their journey.
“We are happy to partner with Porto Secret Spots, our first partner in Portugal, one of the most important markets for Questo. Ever since our first contact, we were really impressed by the partner's creativity and vision to build for the future of city exploration in Porto. We are eager to see the first locals and travelers exploring this beautiful city by playing this new quest”, said Alex Govoreanu, CEO and Co-founder of Questo.

In the past years, more than 60,000 people finished a Questo city game while walking more than 200,000 kilometers to discover popular and hidden locations, as well as local stories.
