Questo partners with Tour Londres to expand its interactive phone-guide tours in London
Posted on Nov 18, 2020 by Questo Team
Tour Londres is a locally-based tourism business created and managed by experienced tour guides with very different backgrounds. Rated by travelers as one of the best tour operators in London, they have accompanied thousands of visitors to discover the British capital in a didactic and fun way.
The secret of Tour Londres' success is their wide knowledge about the city and the visitor's needs, but also the creativity of their proposals. Immersive experiences like “London by Night” or theme tours like “A day in the life with The Beatles” or “London Street Art and Markets” are some examples of their original offer.
Juan Armengol, tour guide and co-founder of Tour Londres, commented: “We are so excited! Questo has given us a great opportunity to continue innovating. These exploration mobile games perfectly fit in our commitment to sustainable tourism as they are far from invasive tourism and a chance for the locals to enjoy a new leisure activity too. The quizzes we are working on will allow anyone to discover amazing places and interesting facts about London by themselves, using their own phone and playing outdoors, which makes it a fun and safe activity for the current times.”
The Questo platform assists travel businesses in creating new revenue streams by offering phone-guided tours called city exploration games that involve elements of outdoor escape games and treasure hunts. These modem tours are interactive, available 24/7 and don’t require a tour guide. Now, Tour Londres and Questo have partnered to work side by side and develop new gamified city tours around London with themes that will surprise and amaze visitors and Londoners.
“We're excited to join forces with Tour Londres, a very fun and creative tour operator that believes in Questo's vision for city exploration. We are eager to see the first quests being released and played, thus helping people explore London on their own, in a fun and safe way.”, added Alex Govoreanu, CEO and Co-founder of Questo.
Travelers and locals use the Questo mobile app to visit attractions and discover local stories as if they are involved in missions and solve challenges. On each mission, they must solve clues, puzzles, and riddles based on their immediate surroundings in order to continue on their journey.
Questo is currently present in over 80 cities including Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, Birmingham, Paris, New York, Tokyo, Sydney, Dubai, Amsterdam, Rome. 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.
The city exploration games are created in partnership with a growing network of over 150 local storytellers and tour operators. Travel businesses that want to join the Questo platform and create their own interactive phone-guided tours can apply here: https://creator.questoapp.com/business
