We really enjoyed the old town tour and will be happy to recommend it. We got a lot of interesting insights and learned a lot. It was very nice to see the enthusiasm with which the city guide imparted her great knowledge about Zurich and its history. She did great. Thank you very much for the great tour!

This was a fantastic experience. Our guide was excellent and the tour incredibly insightful, educational, fun and all around enjoyable. I did this during my 6 hour lay over in Zurich and am so grateful I did. I got a good feel of the city and learned so much about Zurich. I highly recommend!!!

The trip overall was very nice. It was great to see Rhine Falls and the lovely town of Stein Am Rhein. However, we were packed into a small van with not one open seat. Covid certificates were not checked, which I found odd considering the passenger's close proximity. More time in Stein am Rhein to explore would have been nice too. Overall, I enjoyed the trip!
