Basel History Tour for Groups
- Duration: 1.5 hours
per group up to 20
I think the tour guide was very enthusiastic to show the beautiful sites in the old city. She was very knowledgeable about the tidbit stories that made the tour interesting. Loved the visit to the Marktplatz to see the fresh produce and flowers for sale. The visit to the Lookout point near the Cathedral was also scenic as it overlooked the bridge and river. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves very much and would recommend this tour to other visitors. A short but meaningful look at the Old Basel appreciating the history, art, architecture and culture.
It's a privately guided tour which took me around the highlights of Basel, including the Münster, the Old Town, and some quirky parts such as The Three Kings hotel, the Rathaus City Hall, and the "Walk of Fame" and Christmas House along Spalenberg. As I chose to go on an evening tour, many of these sights were not open to visit, but it makes for a good orientation of what to add to your daytime itinerary for Basel. Flavia was a great guide and a real trooper, as h
First four places were great staff helpful friendly welcoming. But skip the last place it was awful when we said we were with the food tour she rolled her eyes and then served everyone else in line until we were the only ones left then she gave us a spell about how great her chocolate was then she gave us a little mint each We were supposed to get a hot chocolate but she was so nasty we were just happy to get out. If not for the last place would have been 5 stars
All but one of the stops were fantastic! the last stop, the chocolate place tried to charge us for the hot chocolate and said the tour company made a mistake to say it was included. They planned to give us two tiny pieces of chocolate for free instead. we got the drinks for free and they took the chocolate back. but the overall tour was worth it. Great experiences at the other venues!
Basal is a unique blend of old and new. Our guide was excellent and truly added to our enjoyment of this city. She also went out of her way to help us find transportation back to the ship. I have never been disappointed with the tours booked through Viator.
