Greg was an excellent tour guide. He showed us a lot of Zürich and taught us a lot about the history and current state of the city. We enjoyed the diversity of transportation utilized and definitely saw things we would never have found on our own. Strongly recommend.

This was an AMAZING tour! My sister and I booked this tour because we were only in Zurich for a few days but wanted to see all of the things this tour offered, and it didn’t disappoint! The views were great and we learned a lot of cool things about the city that we wouldn’t have otherwise known. Our tour guide Greg really made this tour! He was hilarious, kind, and passionate about the city! 10/10 recommend!

Land, water and air tour with Greg
Amy_W

Our tour guide Greg was excellent. Very knowledgeable. He had an answer for every question. The only thing I feel needs to be mentioned, is that there is a lot of walking and some of it can be steep. It would be difficult for those with mobility issues. Accessing bathrooms were an issue as well, as the schedule is very tight.

This was really a wonderful experience, our guide Greg was very knowledgeable, attentive and funny. We walked and discover the city under his guidance. Learned about its history, its present and future. Be ready to walk up a couple of hills, but the views are absolutely worth it. Strongly recommend it.

Great tour of Zurich
Mark_W

Trains, trams, buses, boat, funicular, cable car and plenty of walking. If you’ve only got one day then this is a superb way to see the highlights of Zurich. If you’re spending longer then it’s a great orientation tour. Note 1. while not too strenuous there are some uphill and downhill walking sections which may not suit everybody. Note 2. Our cable car ride to the small “mountain” was nearly called off due to bad weather. We persevered and the weather did clear enough for a good view across the lake (although no mountains). We were told that there would have been a partial refund if the cable car section did not go ahead. Note 3. there was a quick stop to buy lunch from a selection of local takeaways which could then be eaten during the boat ride. Drinks can be bought on the boat itself.

Wouldn't take this tour again
Ayden_F

I think you could easily do this tour yourself and have more fun in the process. Our guide was friendly and well-intentioned, and I appreciate that. But there were other couples on the tour who made the experience very unpleasant. There were two people who struggled to walk (so why book a six-hour walking tour!?). And there were three EXTREMELY obnoxious people who stopped every few moments to take a seat, buy food, take photos, etc. who delayed everyone. Four hours into the tour, the guide told us we were running very late and asked if it was okay if we went over time. That was okay and I'm glad the tour wasn't cut short because of the other guests. But I think the three people who were slowing us down because of their rude behavior should have been asked to leave. It's always a risk booking a group tour because you don't know who else will book on. But it's the responsibility of the guide to keep everyone moving at the same pace. I know our guide tried, but I really think three of the guests should have been told to leave. In terms of what we saw, it wasn't all that much. I think there isn't too much to see in Zurich, but what I did see didn't feel that special. We could have seen it all in two hours on our own, rather than seven hours on this tour.

Thanks for your feedback but let us disagree with your critic! You’re right, sometimes (very rare) we have as guests elderly, families with children or people that are not very fit BUT at WOW ZHRICH TOURS we’re discouraging the racism and discrimination! You’re exaggerating when you’re complaining about all the other guests! It’s a small group tour, not a private one and you should be able to get on well with the other guests, regardless their skin color and origins. As the guide told me, there was a young couple with a child that slowed a bit down the group, but tolerance and a civilized behavior are some of our values, and in this case your tour was extended by 30 min to make sure you’re covering the whole schedule and activities. By the way, at the lunch break, your friend was the one being unpunctual because he went to a grocery to buy some drinks and he didn’t show up on time! The guide was patient and didn’t leave without him even with the risk to miss the boat! How could you feel to be left behind or excluded from the tour? Next time when you’re gonna explore some other cities, make sure you’re booking a jogging tour instead a walking tour, and maybe you’ll cut off a bit the time spent/wasted there. But our guests, will definitely like to enjoy our 6 hour tour on a leisurely pace, having some photo opportunities, learning interesting facts about some tourist attractions that Zurich has to offer, taking a quick lunch break, experiencing a 45-50 min cruise on Lake Zurich, traveling to our little mountains and not getting rushed and stressed out. It’s sad and not justified to rate an excellent tour through your intolerance and complains regarding other group members! Regards, David Orelli WOW ZURICH TOURS

Ideal orientation tour of Zurich and vicinity.
Krzysztof_W

Walk in the city was very interesting due to the numerous stories we heard from the guide. Ship cruise was also interesting and the lift to the mountain was great, as well. Altogether a small group made it easy to interact with the guide who was very good. No question remained unanswered. The guide stories were illustrated by pictures on his iPad. Altogether, time well spent.
