    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!

A lovely eco-friendly way to explore Zurich with a very informative guide. She was willing to be flexible throughout our time with her, which we appreciated. We very much enjoyed our experience.

Very nice guide, who responded to our needs. We were traveling as a family and our children (16 and 18 years old) were also enthusiastic about Zurich.

Even as locals, we discovered a lot of new and interesting things. It's definitely worth it and it was fun.

A great way to get many information about Zurich and to see explore the old city, even in a rainy day.
