Wouldn't take this tour again
Ayden_F

I think you could easily do this tour yourself and have more fun in the process. Our guide was friendly and well-intentioned, and I appreciate that. But there were other couples on the tour who made the experience very unpleasant. There were two people who struggled to walk (so why book a six-hour walking tour!?). And there were three EXTREMELY obnoxious people who stopped every few moments to take a seat, buy food, take photos, etc. who delayed everyone. Four hours into the tour, the guide told us we were running very late and asked if it was okay if we went over time. That was okay and I'm glad the tour wasn't cut short because of the other guests. But I think the three people who were slowing us down because of their rude behavior should have been asked to leave. It's always a risk booking a group tour because you don't know who else will book on. But it's the responsibility of the guide to keep everyone moving at the same pace. I know our guide tried, but I really think three of the guests should have been told to leave. In terms of what we saw, it wasn't all that much. I think there isn't too much to see in Zurich, but what I did see didn't feel that special. We could have seen it all in two hours on our own, rather than seven hours on this tour.

Thanks for your feedback but let us disagree with your critic! You’re right, sometimes (very rare) we have as guests elderly, families with children or people that are not very fit BUT at WOW ZHRICH TOURS we’re discouraging the racism and discrimination! You’re exaggerating when you’re complaining about all the other guests! It’s a small group tour, not a private one and you should be able to get on well with the other guests, regardless their skin color and origins. As the guide told me, there was a young couple with a child that slowed a bit down the group, but tolerance and a civilized behavior are some of our values, and in this case your tour was extended by 30 min to make sure you’re covering the whole schedule and activities. By the way, at the lunch break, your friend was the one being unpunctual because he went to a grocery to buy some drinks and he didn’t show up on time! The guide was patient and didn’t leave without him even with the risk to miss the boat! How could you feel to be left behind or excluded from the tour? Next time when you’re gonna explore some other cities, make sure you’re booking a jogging tour instead a walking tour, and maybe you’ll cut off a bit the time spent/wasted there. But our guests, will definitely like to enjoy our 6 hour tour on a leisurely pace, having some photo opportunities, learning interesting facts about some tourist attractions that Zurich has to offer, taking a quick lunch break, experiencing a 45-50 min cruise on Lake Zurich, traveling to our little mountains and not getting rushed and stressed out. It’s sad and not justified to rate an excellent tour through your intolerance and complains regarding other group members! Regards, David Orelli WOW ZURICH TOURS

Ideal orientation tour of Zurich and vicinity.

Walk in the city was very interesting due to the numerous stories we heard from the guide. Ship cruise was also interesting and the lift to the mountain was great, as well. Altogether a small group made it easy to interact with the guide who was very good. No question remained unanswered. The guide stories were illustrated by pictures on his iPad. Altogether, time well spent.

We had a wonderful experience with Gregory! (I hope I remembered his name correctly). He was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and easy to talk to. The experience itself allowed you to see much of Zurich from a local perspective and much more than we would have been able to do on our own. Highly recommend!

Excellent trip. Very well put together with the tram, cable car, bus and ferry experience while seeing the city walking tour is excellent. Greg, our coach was phenonmenal. Greg was very knowledgeable, friendly and always going a extra mile to give us additional information. Great tour overall, highly recommend it. Wear comfortable shoes, take water and dont throw away empty bottles as there are water fountains everywhere. We tagged 13000 steps. TWO THUMBS UP

I love Zurich , this tour needs to let customers know there is a lot of walking, not for people with bad knees.

Dear guest, thanks for your review and feedback. We are glad to hear that you like Zurich and we are curious to know if before booking our tour, did you read the title and the description where it is clearly marked "6 HOURS" and “WALKING TOUR”? As you could see, most of the Old Town is not accessible by bus or van, and the only way to get the best taste of Zurich is by walking! On your next destination make sure you’re booking a coach tour! Kind regards, D. Orelli

This was a great tour even though it rained the whole time! Our guide, David, was outstanding. You really got a feel for Zurich and the time passed quickly. You do walk A LOT so you probably need a certain level of fitness.

Dear guest, Thanks for taking the time to share your impressions of the tour you had in Zurich! We are glad to hear that despite a rainy day you've got a good feeling about our beautiful city! We hope to see you again in Switzerland! Greetings and kind regards, D. Orelli
