An excellent tour of the key points of interest in the city centre, or at least some of them! An interesting mixed group of about 20 not too big to manage. Very personal touch by Spanish origin tour leader who was able to pitch the information at the right level. Enjoyable in the sunshine too

It was a really nice walking tour with Maribeth who was really enthusiastic and informative. We walked around exploring the less visited part of Basel- kleine Basel. We walked from the German railway station(Basel Bad) to the Rhine river. I was riveted by the architecture and the many stories about this part of the city. This is off the beaten path and if you are spending some time in Basel and have already seen the old town of Basel, this is a great way to spend some time.

We picked up a leaflet at the tourist office about walking tours around Basel, and the walks varied from 30 to 90 minutes.The leaflet, which was in English, was very helpful and explained each route very well.

We did the Klein Basel Tour with Mary Beth and the Down Town Tour with Nathaly and both tours were great! The guides were on time, they knew a lot about the city, they were very patient and the English was very good. I would recommand Free Walking Tours Basel to everyone!

I took the opportunity to do the history tour of Basel Town, it was a great choice. Our guide was Anouk who spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about the history of Basel. She was very patient and only restarted her dialogue once everyone was back in the group after lagging behind taking photos, which was in the main, me.I would recommend this tour if you have a couple of hours to spare. A great opportunity to take photos too.
