About
Zurich has a beautiful, historic old town. Many of the buildings are several hundred years old. In small, private groups, we, two local residents, will guide you for about two hours through winding alleys and cosy squares, right across the old town on both sides of the Limmat river. We will visit places where you can feel the rich history of the city and which can only be reached via special access.

Maria has the Keys to the city
This was a great introduction to many aspects of Zurich. We were very fortunate that it was only myself and my daughter on the tour, especially as I was a bit slow on my feet.
I had been in Zurich for less than 24 hours, my daughter has lived here for a few months, so already knows it pretty well. But we both learnt a lot from the tour.
Maria gave recommendations for inexpensive restaurants (as far as Zurich can do ‘inexpensive’). She gave a brief overview of the histories of each place. I felt she would have gone into more depth had we hungered for more information. Being an evening tour the churches were closed, so I went back another day for a look inside.
It was fascinating that Maria had keys to parts you can only see on a guided tour - the old city wall for one, and a tiny alleyway between buildings.
We came across another guided tour on a couple of occasions, with 20 or so visitors. I was thankful we were not on that tour.

Beautiful and relaxing walking tour
Maria is great and customized the tour to meet my needs. She met me outside my hotel and we toured all over the city. I enjoyed learning about and seeing locations in the city that I wouldn’t have otherwise. Maria is very friendly and knowledgeable and made the tour worthwhile and fun!

A Must Do Tour!!
Dec 2019 • Couples
This tour went above and beyond my expectations! Our tour guide Alexander was amazing. His immense knowledge of Zurich, coupled with his warm and inviting personality made for a memorable night. I encourage everyone to book this tour. You’ll learn about and go places most tourists can not. I promise you you won’t regret it.

Maria was wonderful!
Nov 2019 • Business
My colleagues and I arrived in Zurich a day before our meetings were to start. Maria communicated with us beforehand and met us at the Zurich HB. Despite rainy weather, she guided us through the city sharing history with a local flavor. She was extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and an overall lovely person. I highly recommend her!

Great to look at the real Zurich.
Nov 2019 • Couples
The old distract has the best character and buildings in Zurich. You need to explore deeply to find the best parts and not all of it is open to the public.

Wonderful tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
We did this tour on the spur of the moment yesterday and were so glad we did. Maria met us at our preferred meeting place promptly and we set off on a wonderful two-hour historical walking tour of Zurich. We visited well-known and not so well known places through Zurich, some hidden away from the public and only accessible by key. Maria was a great source of information - both fact and legend - and at our request even provided suggestions for various places to eat. We had a wonderful time - the two hours was over all too soon! Thank you so much Maria.

Do you really know Zürich ?
Oct 2019
We had a great tour with Maria on a bright Thursday evening we started the walk in the old town from Hotel Hirschen at Hirschenplatz.This walk is not exclusively for tourists, even natives who think they know the city, really need to think twice. The walk showed to me that I did not !! Maria, takes you through the streets of the old town, she will open doors to a world behind doors you might have noticed before but never actually entered. You will find yourself in narrow alleys, hidden wine cellars, private homes, all breathing the history of our town. Highly recommended !!
Schöne Grüssen, L & S

Guide was extremely competent in taking, all of us, to relevant historical places with detailed historical facts. She narrated facts with so much interesting details that we were all engrossed into it. She was very courteous explaining facts and details cheerfully.
