“Bike tour of Zurich with top trek a must!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

As other reviewers have stated, the 3-4 hour bike ride through Zurich is a great way to see more and learn more of Zurich and Bruno was a wonderful guide. He also offered added service because he advised me through multiple emails regarding train travel and Swiss half fare pass, and other sightseeing options in the area. His service is professional and he was responsive to All inquiries. Thanks Bruno very much.

“Bruno's Totally Excellent Bike Adventure”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Our family of 5 loved this half day bike trip through lesser explored Zurich. You can and will walk the touristy old Zurich pedestrian streets on your own. Bruno gently cycles you through the big picture, the stunningly beautiful parks and aqua ways and economic-ethnic parts you wouldn't find first time around. Plus, you get Bruno, a Renaissance man, former early Green party member founder, egalitarian, conservationist, and intellectual you can't help but love. You get the real story behind the story from a Bona Fide Zurich native. His trip is filled with wonderful anecdotes, history, and thoughtful tidbits rarely found in tour. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

“Fun way to get an overview of Zürich city center”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This tour is a good way to get an idea where everything is in the main city center of Zürich. The trip goes through several lovely parks in the flatter areas of the city. (There's only a few hilly spots, with several breaks for water & a break with public restrooms half way through). Bruno speaks very good English, has a great sense of humor, and was very conscious of making everyone feel welcome. I think the best aspect of taking this tour was seeing which spots are important to a local citizen and hearing about the history of different areas, especially more recent history and how modern Zürich developed. I only had a short visit to the city, so this helped me plan & pick out the local spots that I wanted to explore more.

“Great way to see Zurich in a day”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Bruno gave a great 3 hour tour of Zurich and spoke great English. It was a perfect to see the entire city and learn about the history of the town, as well get to see all of the parks. I would recommend it to any active travels as a great alternative to walking the city.

“A little bit of everything”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Bruno gave us a fantastic tour- we went all around the city and it took about 4 hours. The riding was mostly easy / flat but there were several hills and valleys ( beware of heartbreak hill !) we stopped often at various points and Bruno told us all about Zurich' s history, geography, politics, culture, and anything else we asked about! We really saw a little bit of everything! Bruno was so friendly and informative I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone with a few hours in Zurich! And for $50 you can't get a better deal!
