Very interesting town

Did not know anything aboutBern or what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. Bern is a very well laid out town and easy to get around. Although it was a very cold and rainy day, we had a good time on this tour. The group was small and the guide was friendly and interacted with everyone. The clock tower was exceptional.

Great old town, too large group

12 people with three languages without microphone, because you smoke extremely long per attraction. With today's technology you should equip such large groups with the appropriate hardware (microphone and earphones) - we were in the capital of Switzerland and not in the African bush. But otherwise everything was ok. You have to see the old town.

An interesting, informative history of what we saw on our stroll

It is always much more interesting when one knows the story behind what one is looking at in an historic city like Bern. Our guide, Ursula, explained everything in a very clear, well-modulated speaking manner and her interest in what she was telling us, made us interested too. She did a good job and our experience heightened the pleasure of our visit. Thank you.
