    So to start off, the food was great! I was very surprised, because the other steak I had in Geneva was not nearly as good as I was expecting. So when I had my first bite of steak it was such a pleasant surprise. The wine was also very good, I’m not a big fan of red wine, but I thoroughly enjoyed then Pinot Noir they served. The experience literally made our time in Zürich! Our driver was a blast, very friendly and knowledgeable. Took us to things catered more to what he thought we might enjoy after a little bit of conversation, and even made a quick stop so we could buy some more wine. We were very very happy with the experience and it was worth every penny!
