Worth the money and time
, Dec 2021
Tour guide was very accommodating and offered lots of info. If you just want to quickly walk through the city and get the “1000 feet above” story of Zurich, this tour is for you. She also ended the tour by giving us several drink vouchers for a few local Christmas markets which pretty much covered the cost of the tour!

Nice tour
, Dec 2021
Nice tour, behooves for you to ask questions, otherwise you get concise information. The path it takes is nice and you get a good layout of the time.
Fascinating, informative, highly recommended

Andrea the guide was knowledgeable, adaptable and gave an excellent and fascinating tour, lots of insights into life in Zurich and brought the city to life for us.
The information the guide...
, Sep 2021
The information the guide shared was very insightful! However, as English-speakers, we felt there were often times when the guide forgot to translate from German, left out details, or didn't share other guests' German questions with us. For being advertised as an English/German tour, we were a little disappointed it wasn't split equally.

Lovely walk through Zurich

Wonderful walk through Old Town with a friendly and informative guide. Would recommend. It was nice learning about the past and present of Zurich's illustrious city, where everywhere you turn is a new and gorgeous view.
Zurich in a Flash

If you’re looking for a quick tour of Zurich, this is a good experience to introduce yourself to the city. My tour guide, Sophia, was knowledgeable and friendly. I’ll say I thought the tour was too short, I think a 3-hour experience would have been better.
Efficient way to see Old Town!

Guide was knowledgeable and we covered a lot of ground that I would never have found on my own ! I had only one day in Zurich and this was the way to get the most of the visit!

Enjoyable way to see and learn about Zurich.
, Oct 2019
Thank you to Anne-maria for showing us Zurich. We really enjoyed this walking tour and the fact that we were not too many in the group made it very special! We loved our guide, the places she showed us and the many things she told us. I could really recommend this walking tour if you have limited time and want to make the most of Zurich!
Barbara was amazing!
, Sep 2019
What a lovely tour! Barbara was one of the best and more enthusiastic tour guides I've ever had. 100% recommendable to do at the beginning of your trip, so you can lear a bit more about the history of the city + learn the trips from the local guide.

One of the worst walking tours I’ve ever done. If you want to learn absolutely nothing about old town Zürich then this is the tour for you. Don’t waste your time or money. Guide had no idea what to talk about. Made up fake answers to questions. Awful awful awful.
