What people are saying about Lake Zurich

Everything was smooth, easy to find the pick up point, the introduction from our guide Gallus was clear. We had 8 people in the group, 2 of which were more German speaking, so he conducted the tour in both English and German. We had 2 photo spots - one at the lake and the other at the top of the hill. We were lucky with the weather, sunny and blue skies, so it was a great 2 hours around the city!

a very informative tour. Our tour guide inspired me with her presentation about Zurich. We learned a lot. Unfortunately, there were a lot of road closures due to road construction work, so we didn't have enough time for the last walk through Zurich.

Our tour guide was very polite, the tour view was perfect, the explanations and information were very insightful. We can only recommend the tour.

This tour was a perfect introduction to Zurich. The guide was smart, engaging and cared about our experience. I would recommend!

Very pleasant and entertaining guide, great bus driver
