    Thomas was a very good guide and we were with a very nice group of people. Thomas made us all feel comfortable and answered many questions. We really enjoyed our time with him on the walking tour and his interesting and informative discussion. He took time with us to explain extra things that we asked about. His English was really good. Thanks for a great experience. Jenny and Marcus - Australia.

    A good opportunity to get to know Bern. Our guide Carmen has been very enthusiastic and has made very interesting comments. The contracted activity was in German but since there was a French-speaking couple, the guide repeated the comments in 2 languages, which made it lose dynamism and it was not what was agreed.

    The meeting point was right at the entrance of the tourist office. Our group with a French-speaking guide was made up of only four people. The German-speaking group was much larger. The guide, Margaret, was very kind and knowledgeable. In addition, the pace of the visit was fast enough to learn some key information and also gave us time to take photos. I highly recommend this city tour!
