2-hour Private Guided Zurich Downtown Tour
Stroll around Zurich with your own private guide who shares informative commentary during your 2-hour walking tour. Discover the many sides of Switzerland's cultural and financial capital on your customizable tour, with stops at Paradeplatz, Fraumünster Church, Thermengasse, St Peter’s Church, Grossmünster and historical guild houses. Soak in the beauty of Lindenhof and pass the house where Lenin once lived, among other highlights in this dynamic Swiss city.
What to Expect
Meet your knowledgeable private guide at Paradeplatz or upon pickup at your hotel.

Learn about the history of Zurich, from its beginnings as a Roman toll road stop to a city with a reputation as one of the most expensive in the world. Hear about Charles the Great, Vladimir Lenin, Albert Einstein and Marc Chagall in Zurich, and see several hidden gems in the city.

Understand the forces that shaped the economic and scientific center of Switzerland as your guide recounts fascinating tales of money, power struggles and fine art. Admire stained glass windows by Chagall and Giacometti in Fraumünster Church; take in the high-priced real estate of Paradeplatz; see where Lenin lived before the Russian Revolution; and admire Grossmünster, a major church that may have been founded by Emperor Charlemagne.

Your guide can customize the tour to your interests. Whether you want to focus on the history of the city, its business environment, or another theme, Zurich has plenty of fascinating angles to explore.
