  • The tour never showed up at the airport, we waiting till 1PM and gave up, not only was our money wasted but so was our time we ended up having a cab give us a wonderful tour of the city! Very disappointed -

  • Great tour of Zurich!

  • Nice view of city and surrounds.

  • The tour was excellent and the guide knew what she was talking. The bus however was late in picking us up from the airport.

  • Evelyn is a jewel as a tour guide. One could tell that the insights she has is through many years of experience. Thank you Evelyn for making me learn about Zurich.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The tour gave us the opportunity to get an overview of the entire town in a short amount of time. Our guide gave us great commentary during the ride of many important sites with great photo ops . We were also able to stop and get out a few times during the tour. Once we stopped at the shores of Lake Geneva, another included a funicular ride to a vantage point overlooking the town, and the last stop was a walking tour of the Old Town. We would recommend this tour.

  • Basically well done tour with a pleasant Swiss tour guide. Particularly enjoyed the funicular ride up to the Dolder Grand Hotel and its little golf course. Great views. Tour went quickly so there was only time to hit the highlights briefly but a good way to start a trip to Zurich to get some idea of where you'd like to concentrate more time later on.

  • There was do much I learned in such a short period of time. Zurich is such a quaint and charming city. The two and and half hour tour was all I need to get a feel for Zurich and to find my way by foot once the tour was over. The tour guide was extremely knowledge and courteous.
