4.4 / 5

based on 687 reviews

Everything was smooth, easy to find the pick up point, the introduction from our guide Gallus was clear. We had 8 people in the group, 2 of which were more German speaking, so he conducted the tour in both English and German. We had 2 photo spots - one at the lake and the other at the top of the hill. We were lucky with the weather, sunny and blue skies, so it was a great 2 hours around the city!

It started very punctually, the guide spoke very clearly and clearly. Can only be recommended to get to know Zurich from a different perspective.
