What people are saying about Lake 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

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.

A good Zürich primer, but inevitably a little rushed.

Recommended as a whistle stop tour of Zürich, but given the time constraints it was inevitably a little rushed. The guide was very pleasant, but failed to emphasise key times and made little effort to keep the large group together. Overall good value for money, but set your expectations accordingly.

A great value to introduce us to Zürich!

We have been going So hard in other cities that we decided to do a change of pace. We took this tour which was over four hours and showed us pretty much most of the town of Lake Zürich and the hills overlooking Zürich. A very laid-back and informational tour. Beautiful views!

great giude, very knowledgeable and friendly.

Half bus tour and half walking. All the tour was external no entry to churches, historic buildings. Interesting facts and stories shared by a very good tour guide. Nice to know that you can trust Get your Guide all over the world and trust their quality.
