Walking Tours for Teams
Whether it's a team building event, a company trip or simply free time with a group of colleagues or friends - our guided city tours are a perfect opportunity to explore the city, spend quality time together and have lots of interaction in each group.
When you and your colleagues are visiting the city, typical guided city tours are sometimes more, sometimes less suitable for companies and team trips, depending on how the city guide adapts to his audience. However, one challenge remains: In essence, classic city tours are consumed passively by the group and are not very interactive.
Furthermore, a fixed time frame and schedule offers little room and flexibility for individual interests in a classic walking tour. The whole group follows the fixed schedule.
Peryscope gets rid of all these pain points by offering interactive svavenger hunts on the smartphone, which allow groups of colleagues or teams to explore the city independently with a modern, digital approach.
Peryscope walking tours are interactive scavenger hunts on the smartphone: Small groups explore the city as teams on their own. Within the framework of an exciting story, each team is challenges with questions and puzzles to play their way through the city.
Peryscope walking tours are enriched with numerous media in the form of voice messages, pictures and videos that enrich the gameplay and convey background information and city history.
Larger groups of colleagues are divided into teams of up to 4 persons, who then play together. The tasks and riddles of the city rally can only be solved as a group - thus strengthening the team spirit. A competition is also easily possible: with statistics on the duration of the tour and the number of clues needed, a winning team can be chosen at the end.
In case you are a very large group, don't worry: Peryscope has successfully hosted tours with up to 100 persons. Just delay the start between groups a little bit, so that not all the groups are in one spot at the same time and you're all set! As each group plays the walking tour individually, it is even more relaxed than maneuvering large groups of people through the city.
