Kinda boring, not a lot of knowledge transfer. Didn’t see inside churches. Was hoping for more I formative and fun experience
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Dear guest , thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that the tour didn’t suit you. Unfortunately the churches are closed in the evening. Therefore I took you into other historical places, and I’m sorry, you left the tour earlier , so you couldn’t see all of them. Greetings Maria

Beautiful Twilight / Evening Tour of Zurich
Eric_L
, Apr 2022
A perfect way to get introduced to Zurich. Maria was particularly knowledgeable, and shared many interesting insights and historical facts about her beautiful adopted city. At the end of the tour, she took me up to one of her favorite viewpoints. This tour is especially great if you have a limited amount of time in town. After two hours, I saw most of the highlights of Zurich's Old Town - including many things I would not have seen on my own. Bring comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for some moderate uphill walking. The views and photo opportunities will be worth it.

The views, the funicular, and the personal attention by our guide. However, there is a lot of walking and some steep inclines. Good to be in good physical shape.

Amazing!

This was a great way to explore historic Zurich. The tour guides (a couple) were locals, whom met us at our hotel to begin the tour. We used the train and then most of the tour was walking. They communicated clearly prior to our scheduled tour to inquire our interests. They were very knowledgeable and informative. They showed us small little details that we would not have known otherwise. The city is historic and authentic, it would be difficult to know the stories behind without a tour guide. This was definitely one of our most memorable tour and will definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Zurich.

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit unserem Guide Alexander V. Er hat eine super interessante Führung durch Zürich mit uns unternommen mit vielen spannenden Geschichten und Insiderwissen. Wir werden im Sommer wieder in Zürich sein und 100% noch eine Führung mit Alexander machen. Können Alexander als Guide Ihnen definitiv weiter empfehlen!
