I really think that a tour sponsored by the Official tourist office should be of higher quality than our tour. It was pricey and most definitely NOT value received. The guide had a "canned" talk and she did not place the historical facts in context with what we were seeing. We roamed around the Aldstadt as well as the area... More

Maria, our tour guide, did a thorough job with history and old myths about different times in the city. Tour was in English and our group was of about 15 people from all over the globe. The tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours. This tour is free and guides rely on their tour skills for tip money. A very good... More

We took the free walking tour in Auldstadt. Maria, our guide was wonderful. Her English was great and she had a good sense of humor. We hit all of the highlights such as Grossminster, Fraumunster, Lindenhof and others. The tour is free, but please tip the tour guide!

I highly recommend this tour. I went to the Tourism office in the Zurich train station and signed up for this tour for later that same afternoon. Our guided walk of the Old Town was led by Sonia and she was fantastic. The group was diverse of English and German speakers and she ensured we all understood the dialogue. It... More

We only had one day in Zurich, so we thought the walking tour would be a great way to get a general overview of the city as well as learn a little of the history. We were not disappointed. The tour guide was a lovely women who told stories and showed us some of the more interesting sights of the... More

We took the number 11 tram from Zurich Main Station (Zurich HB) which brought us to the Zurich Lake. Upon walking back, we got to see the beautiful street with many different shops offering the latest in trendy fashion apparel, watches and so on. The cleanliness and systematic way of things greatly impressed us.

Free walking tour by funny, well informed guide. Great way to see the main sights and learn some interesting tidbits about Zurich. And very nice to just politely mention that she is working for tips, unlike some countries where the "reminders" asking for tips, on PAID tours, gets embarrassing. I hope Maria is properly tipped by all of her guests,... More

Maria was our local guide speaking good English on the 11 a.m. tour. Met outside the UBS bank on Paradeplatz. No need to book in advance. She knows Zurich well and we wandered around the old town with her for an hour and a half (a group of about 20 people). This was both a fun trip and one that... More

Very interesting and worthwhile walking tour of the old town. Took a bit too long to get away from environs of the train station (tours start from the tourist office in the station). Guide excellent with great knowledge of area, pointed out sites and history that one might miss on one's own. Very worthwhile and much superior to the trolley-bus... More

I was looking to cover the main sites of central zurich and get some background and history too, so I went along to the downtown Zurich tour. Despite rainy weather, we had a large and fun group headed by our guide April, who gave lots of interesting points of history along the tour. I had seen most of the sites... More
