My family and I enjoyed this wonderful experience! Marlisse was our tour guide and she was very informative with all of our questions and the tour. She also provided amazing recommendations after for our trip. It was nice to see the city, experience the boat ride, and especially the views after the cable car. Great pictures and great hot drinks and pastries.

I was there with my wife and my 20 months old son. We enjoyed the trip to the fullest. The van was comfortable and with all the safety precautions in the corona situation. Mr. Andy is a good guide with a good skills in English as well as German. Getting to know the history of the city and the country was very interesting for us. A comfortable car seat was made available in the van. The view from the alps was so ecstatic. I recommend this trip.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Zürich and answered any question I threw at him. Very impressive, including the fact he was fluent in five languages. This tour is best taken on a first day to the city to help orient yourself and decide where you want to lend more time on any subsequent days. I can’t speak to the quality of the very end of the tour, as the weather was to inclement to ascend up the cable car. We headed to a store to purchase chocolate instead, which was the only part I’d have changed...if I could change the weather.
