Covid certificates were not checked, which I found odd considering the passenger's close proximity. More time in Stein am Rhein to explore would have been nice too. Overall, I enjoyed the trip!

    So to start off, the food was great! I was very surprised, because the other steak I had in Geneva was not nearly as good as I was expecting. So when I had my first bite of steak it was such a pleasant surprise. The wine was also very good, I’m not a big fan of red wine, but I thoroughly enjoyed then Pinot Noir they served. The experience literally made our time in Zürich! Our driver was a blast, very friendly and knowledgeable. Took us to things catered more to what he thought we might enjoy after a little bit of conversation, and even made a quick stop so we could buy some more wine. We were very very happy with the experience and it was worth every penny!

Konrad was an amazing guide, speaking slowly and clearly. We saw a lot and it was great that we were not so many. Wonderful and eventful trip.

Even as locals, we discovered a lot of new and interesting things. It's definitely worth it and it was fun.
