Note that we will NOT go in the buildings. In this unique experience, we will explore the international organizations located in Geneva. You might have already seen most of them in media and this will be an opportunity for you to see and feel them with your own senses. Geneva is the home to about 3000 international families, working in International NGOs (non-government organizations). United Nations, ITU (International Technology Union), UNESCO, Red Cross, ILO (International Labor Office), WHO (World Health Organization) are only some of the organizations we will explore. All your answers will be answered by a local. Together we will hunt the buildings one by one, search for our country flags, hear the stories behind those organizations, examine the buildings' architectural styles, learn to connect them with real-life and understand the purpose of their existence. Ariana Museum and a coffee break at the Red Cross or Ariana Museum will be the bonus of the tour. Let's explore this area together. At the end of the tour, you will love those buildings and organizations. We are so lucky and thankful that Geneva was chosen to be the center of life.
