“Enjoyable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I saw the flyer for this walking tour at the information centre and thought I'd join it on my last night in Interlaken. Our guide was not Viktor, but it was a friend of his, Manuel (I'm so sorry if I've gotten the name wrong!)
Our group was taken to a number of places, including the castle, along parts of the river, and up the hill to enjoy a panoramic view of Interlaken. And because there's a bit of walking up and down hills, don't wear flip flops! You're requested to tip the guide afterwards so tip based on how much you liked the tour; the tip is optional since it's advertised as a free tour. I enjoyed the tour and it was nice a way to end my trip to Interlaken.

“Great tour Viktor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Viktor's guided tour of Interlaken was just great. lovely mix of history, geography, music and unexpected sight seeing. Wont give away any of the surprises but timing in the early evening for summer was great. And thanks for the tip about the boat trip on the Thunsee or Brienzer see. We took it and loved it. Also the tip on the forest walk back from the second last stop. Just brilliant.
thanks Viktor

“Great insight into Interlaken and the region. Highly recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This tour was a great way to learn more about Interlaken and the region a local. Victor is a great guide, and he created the tour himself. He had funny stories, good recommendations (Rugenbräu is good!) and he knew his stuff. It was great to take this tour and learn more about Interlaken beyond the usual tourism activities. If you take this free tour make sure you leave a tip at the end!

“Viktor's Free WalkingTour of Interlaken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

2 hours worth-spending for an eventful and insightful walking tour to know bit more about Interlaken city from local guide. Viktor will guide the group to places of interest in city center roundabout, to sneak little history of Interlaken. Beautiful scenery to enjoy while having fun with new-found friends to wrap up the day.

“Excelente forma de conocer los mejores rincones de Interlaken!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I had the opportunity of participating of the Free Walking Tour and it was a great experience! If I hadn't taken the tour I'd probably never have gone to the panoramic points and seen such a breathtaking sceneries. I also learned a lot about the history of Interlaken, Viktor is such an amazing guide, he speaks Spanish as well as he speaks English and makes you feel very comfortable and catchs your attention with his knowdlege about the city. I highly recommend it!!
