Very nice tour! Martin was a very friendly and personable guide. On this tour you saw a lot and it was very varied. You could also nibble on a lot of chocolate in the Lindt Museum. The boat tour was a bit short, but still really nice!

Super good performance. Especially with the travel guide ATTILLA He is funny, intelligent, eloquent, humorous and super friendly. I will advertise for you over and over again. Greetings Bela Balint

Even as locals, we discovered a lot of new and interesting things. It's definitely worth it and it was fun.

A great way to get many information about Zurich and to see explore the old city, even in a rainy day.
