Meet your guide at your centrally located Zurich hotel for a walking tour built around the attractions you most want to see. Walking is the best way to really get a feel for this dynamic city. As you make your way around town, your guide will answer your questions and share anecdotes and facts about Zurich, allowing plenty of time for photos.

See Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's main thoroughfare and one of the ritziest shopping streets in the world, and admire clear and placid Lake zurich. Learn about Albert Einstein's time as a student at ETH Zurich, and see the sublime stained-glass windows by Marc Chagall at Fraumunster Church.

Experience the rich culture of Zurich, which has more than 50 museums and 100 art galleries and a world-class concert hall, the Tonhalle Zurich.

    We toured across Europe for over a month and got several tours on Viator.com. Of all the tours, this private walking tour of Zurich was the best. Our tour guide, Antje, was the most professional guide in all of our 26 tours. She was very engaging, had full of insights, and she even went out of her way to recommend places to visit after the tour. We were a family with two seniors, and she happily adjusted to their pace, too.

    This is a well-designed AND well-executed tour. Kudos to Antje and the Best of Switzerland Tours. And thanks for giving us a memorable, fun time in Zurich!

    Trudy met us at our hotel right on time. We were only going to be in Zurich for a short time. So we took a 2 hour walking tour of the city. Trudy packed in as much as possible in that time frame without feeling rushed and even stayed a little longer to take us to where a restaurant we wanted to go to was located. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the history and I would highly recommend her. We very much enjoyed our short stay in Zurich thanks to Trudy.
