What people are saying about Basel

We received a very friendly welcome at every station. Kult has a beautiful little garden, and we had a delicious meal at Klaras. There were also treats at the other two stations. I highly recommend the tour.

It was a great experience. Plenty to eat. We did get a bit confused with the Kults bakery and went to the wrong one to start with so be aware!

Interesting experiences and fine culinary delights at each station. Pleasant walks through the city. Nice and fine!
