    The BEST WAY to start your visit to Zurich!
    We had an amazing tour of historic Zurich with Alexander. He resides in this district and shared so much interesting information about the history, culture, and government of Switzerland as well as many interesting anecdotes of important people who have lived here. Our walking tour took us through old town, the university area and along the river. It was fun to see all the young students, residents of the city and fellow tourists and learn more about life in Zurich. The two hours flew by and we learned so much! Alexander is a great listener as well and customized the tour when possible to match our interests. He made excellent suggestions of restaurants, things to do and places to visit during our stay. It was a perfect introduction to Zurich and Switzerland and we highly recommend the Historic Tour of Zurich with Alexander. Thank you SO much Alexander!

    Old town Zurich tour
    We spent a great two hours with Alex on our tour of Zurich. He was extremely knowledgeable and shared spots that we never would have found on our own. Lots of insider information and local recommendations that we appreciated. If you would like to have a quick tour of the old town, this is perfect.

    A Five-Star Journey Through Zurich with Alexander
    From the moment we embarked on our private tour of Zurich, it was clear that Alexander was not just a guide, but a master of hospitality and local insight. With the foresight of a seasoned professional, Alexander had umbrellas at the ready, ensuring that not even the whims of weather could dampen our spirits. His patience was unparalleled, allowing us the freedom to capture memories through pictures and videos without ever feeling rushed. Alexander didn’t just show us Zurich; he introduced us to the heart of the city, sharing personal anecdotes and bringing us to local restaurants he frequents. His recommendations were spot-on, adding a delicious layer to our exploration. It’s rare to find someone so dedicated to creating an exceptional experience, but Alexander did just that, impressing us from start to finish. For anyone in search of not just a tour, but an unforgettable journey through Zurich, Alexander comes highly recommended. His blend of professionalism, warmth, and local expertise sets him apart as a true ambassador of the city. Trust us—booking a private tour with Alexander is a decision you won’t regret. Prepare to be amazed!

    Great experience. Knowledgeable and engaging guide, relaxed pace but still saw plenty
    Spent 2 very enjoyable hours with very knowledgeable guide Alex walking the "old" Zurich. A lot to see, super clean and very picturesque with loads of history. Alex was engaging and freely shared his 40 years of Zurich knowledge ..walking about so much richer than the bus tour I'd taken immediately prior. Highly recommended - Kerry from Australia

    Nice quick tour.
    Nice overview or Old Town and it's history. Gave us access to areas which we would not have seen if we simply did a self tour. Did involve walking up and down some steep walkways. Even so, I would recommend it.

    Fantastic tour
    We only had one day in Zurich as we had connecting trains so we wanted to do something in a few hours. This tour started not far from the rail station so was ideal for us and in 5 minutes walking. The tour was excellent and we got to hear so much about Zurich. Marie was an excellent host and showed us some very neat places with so many details. Enjoyed it so much, many thanks.

    A wonderful way to get acquainted with Zurich
    Maria was a lovely tour guide through this beautiful city - we were caught in a real downpour and she was able to modify our tour on the fly and show me really interesting indoor places to give us a bit of shelter. Truly a great way to learn about Zurich!

    Great chance to get a very personal tour of Zurich
    I was traveling for business with a coworker and we decided to take the red eye from the states and then stay up as long as possible after we landed in order to adjust for the work week. We decided to book this walking tour to keep us moving and learn more about Zurich- and we were so glad we did! Maria was an excellent host...telling us about the history of the area with some unique stops we would have never found on our own AND she also shared what her experience living there is like. We left the tour feeling like we really got a sense for Zurich (and ...BONUS...we were re-energized). I highly recommend the tour and Maria's company. When booking, the reviews were strong and I now know why. My only hesitation was the low number of reviews to date so do these folks a favor...book your tour and leave a review!

We did the tour with the Guide Maria a hot early Monday evening mid July. We booked the tour as we wanted to get to learn more about the new Hip Zurich West Area, that in the 80ies and early 90ies was a “black chapter” in the history of Zürich, however since some years is the area with new urban restaurants and bars.

The tour started at Central, we walked over to Landesmuseum and walked through the Parc Platzspitz along the river Limmat. The parc became “world famous” for the “open drug area” end of 1980; but is now totally cleaned up, with regular cultural and festive activities.
At the end of the Parc, we headed over the bridge and followed the river along the old railway tracks to Zürich West. The area along the river was packed by people swimming and jumping into the river, sunbathing along the river walk or sitting in one of the restaurants or bar along the river. We made a stop here for a drink as the atmosphere was so cool and Maria had nothing against it. She said we can decide the tempo and the tour takes 2 hrs, she would bring us to an area at the end we’re we can find a restaurant and then get back to the main station by the train or bus.

We followed the “old railway” track down to the arcades (a little like the High Line in New York), were you have shops, a huge Parc for kids and families, restaurants. Now in summer, you could really feel this has become a living part of the city, once only old fabrics and a lots of traffic existed here. We made a stop at the “Surf-wave Bar” don’t remember the name, but there is a big wave-machine in a pool and surfers are training and showing tricks. We continued to Frau Gerald Garten for Dinner which is a very well known alternative easy-going out-door restaurant were Maria dropped us off. Maria explained the way to the Railway station Hardbrücke just some minutes away so that we could come back to the main station after our dinner.

The tour is great for couples and friends, young people (at least young in mind) and mid-agers like myself, that want to feel the pulse of the city. Next time I come to Zürich, I will bring a friend and do the tour myself with more time, take a short swim, do some shopping at the arcades, pic-nic in the Parc and make a stop in the Freitag container pop-up store store (they create bicycle bags made of recycled plastic, very popular by students in Switzerland).

The tour is different and more personal than the tours I have booked in the past through a tourist company. You have a private Guide and can create the tour as you like - Maria was very knowledgeable and told us small stories to the areas, both historical and personal experiences.
Warmly recommended

This was a great, informative tour! Although Zurich is not unknown to me, this was an eye-opener and a discovery of new parts of Zurich and I learnt a lot. What was very amazing was that you walked from the main station to the former industrial part without having any traffic at all, only walking paths.
Maria was a terrific guide. She has a very good knowledge about the history of Zurich and could explain and tell stories about all the landmarks and the buildings we saw along. She knows her way through all areas of Zurich. What I appreciated very much was her flexibility about the pickup point and the length of the tour. It was a very personal and enjoyable evening tour. I can warmly recommend her.
