Great highlights of Zurich old town.
Jhasmine_P
, May 2022
We caught the 1300 tour the morning we arrived in Zurich from the states—great way to fight jet lag and learn about the place we were visiting. Our guide (Itty) was great. She gave us great tips on what to see when we wandered on our own and highlighted the main areas of the old town during the tour. The others walking with us were also great group of people. Even in (later) COVID times felt very safe as the tour was outside .

Great thing to do for first timers in Zurich!

Our tour guide Andrea was great! Her English was excellent and I could understand everything she said. She gave us informative facts about Zurich and it was a great welcome to the city for a first timer. I highly recommend this tour! I got to see places I probably wouldn’t have on my own and she gave us key insights.

Worth the money and time
Ben_B
, 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, 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.

The information the guide...
Jared_M
, 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.

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.

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!

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.
