was great!

It was a nice ride. The "leader" told everything very well and only in two languages (German + English). She knew a lot to tell. It was varied and very interesting. Unfortunately there was no trip to Bruderholz; would have been an additional experience. Even as Basel we will take this ride again and of course recommend this to all our friends and acquaintances!

Loved it!

My girlfriend and I found this excursion to be additional to the one we participated in the day before with the Viking folks. This was even more informative and even "filled in the blanks" that we had forgotten from the day before. Our guide was great, patient and informative. I would definitely book another excursion with you folks. Thanks

I am from Basel and took this trip on the vintage tram because my grandchildren like to drive with Basel's old "Drämmli", they had a lot of fun
