What people are saying about Zurich

Informative and Enchanting Tour with a Historian

Within the span of an hour and a half, Monica was able to weave an enchanting tale about the history of Zurich. As we climbed a hill to view the city center from above and crossed bridges above a glittering, azure lake, I learned so much not only about the city's history, but also its people. Because I also mentioned that I wanted to take pictures, Monica made sure to point out some really picturesque spots and even helped take photos of me. At the end of the tour, she advised me on which Swiss chocolates were best to take home as gifts and also helped me find the right tram number to take back to my hotel. This was truly one of the best walking tours I've joined with a considerate and knowledgeable guide. P.S. Thank you for the Swiss tea! It was lovely. <3

Great introduction to the city of Zurich

We booked this tour once we had arrived in Zurich and we were looking for a quick introduction to the highlights of the city. This was the perfect tour for us, very comfortable touring bus and smooth driving, very knowledgeable tour guide. We had a couple of stops along the way which allowed us to stretch and get a closer look at the harbor, ride the cable car and finally the old village. After the tour, we went back to the Konshaus which the guide has mentioned, and we were tremendously impressed by the museum's collection. So very glad to have learned about it from the tour.

Good but shortened due to traffic problems

The tour was generally good and the guide excellent. However, it was a public holiday elsewhere which meant people were coming to Zurich to shop; this caused tremendous traffic problems, meaning we did not have time to stop and walk around the Old Town (which was a planned part of the tour). This was very disappointing and something we'd been looking forward to. The guide knew about this so surely on this day the company could have planned (before accepting bookings) for the tour to last 15-20 minutes longer which would have meant it was not cut short.

A great way to get a historical overview of Zürich!

We were a group of 11, and Monica did a great job of giving us an overview of the foundations of the city and how it developed. Hearing about important revolutions, learning about the different guilds, and seeing the model of old Zürich gave us an interesting perspective on the old ways of life compared to the commercial, financial city of today. Monica was great at answering our questions, and you could feel her passion about the city, its history, and its architecture.

Nice tour and train ride! Beautiful mountain!

Tour went smoothly, although it was much larger tham I anticipated (about 60 people). It worked out fine but as the guide did a good job and tourmates respect the meeting time. I can see it is very difficult to manage such a large group with one guide and the meeting point is really busy so it's almost impossible to keep track on headcounts.
