“Bruno's bike tour is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We only had one afternoon in Zurich and chose to spend in with Bruno and that was a great decision. We had a wonderful afternoon and a great tour. The best thing is that Bruno gives you a perspective on Zurich and it's diverse neighborhoods that most tours never go near and that's a shame. Do yourself a favor and get out of that bus and get on a bicycle with Bruno for an afternoon and explore and have a great time...even if you haven't been on a bike in 30 years like me...if I can do it so can you!

“Very interesting and informative cycle tour of the sights of Zurich.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Bruno at Toptrek was very helpful from the beginning, putting together a bespoke itinerary to cater for our diverse needs. He even bought a new cycle in order to cater for our five-year-old son! On the day we had a very informative tour, conducted at our pace, with plenty of stops to allow for our youngsters to refuel. Bruno is very politically aware as well as being knowledgable about nature. Aged five to forty five, we all had a most enjoyable morning. Thank you, Bruno.

“Brilliant Bruno's Bike Tour, a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Thanks to the charming and informative Bruno for a fantastic day tour of Zurich by bike. Our family of two adults and two children booked a private weekend tour in December, despite the overcast and inclement weather. Our concerns about bad weather were allayed by Bruno who offered to cancel at the last minute with full refund if the weather was too bad to ride. Bruno started with an informative talk about Zurich and Switzerland while we were sorting out the bikes, and was more than happy to keep the discussions going whenever we stopped. We meandered through the Old Town down along the river to the lake, and around the lake through gardens. After three hours the rain set in, so we headed for a cafe and continued our discussions and learning about this beautiful country. Once the weather improved we headed off back along the river, through an area that is undergoing transformation from a former industrial area, particularly breweries, into residential and more urban renewal projects.

Our boys aged, 8 and 11, managed the bikes really well, despite the rain and occasionally icy roads. The bikes were in excellent condition and had continuous gearing with a little picturegram to show high and low gear, a brilliant idea! Chris says Bruno is a great friend to have in Zurich, great cyclist and great teacher of geography in Zurich. Highly recommended for any conditions but would be superb in summer or spring!

“Bruno, the guide and owner is the real attraction!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I booked my day trip with Toptrek after reading reviews from Tripadvisor. I contacted Toptrek before i arrived in Zurich. This is when i came into contact with Bruno. Bruno not only told me about his services he had to offer but also told me about the attractions i should experience during my trip to Switzerland and some money saving ideas for which i would always be thankful to him. Once in Zurich we met Bruno at the train station. (We were an hour late than scheduled). I and my wife spent about 4 hours on a bike with Bruno. Zurich was beautiful.The weather was fantastic. Bruno was a very knowledgeable man. He told us in length about Zurich and its history. I should also like to mention that i had never ridden a bike for more than 10 mins in my entire life still i was able to complete my trip.( if i can do it , anyone can). The bicycle trip lasts about 4 hours,takes you across Zurich's main destinations, some beautiful parks. Bruno and his bicycle trip was clearly the highlight of my trip. Bruno is an attraction by himself. Thank you Bruno and Toptrek.(wollte t etwas schreiben in Hindi für Bruino aber Schriftarten nicht vorhanden)

“Even better than we imagined”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Bruno kept us entertained with facts, stories and anecdotes of Switzerland and Zurich. No question was too hard for him. The bikes were excellent and the ride was very scenic and mostly flat. The tour was a lovely way to get an overview of Zurich and well as some exercise.
