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!

The tour is a good way to get a first overview of the city. There is a stop at the lake where you can take beautiful pictures, get a croissant at the kiosk to strengthen yourself or have the last chance to go to the toilet. Our guide did his job very well in German and English.

The tour was exciting but also relaxed. Since I am handicapped, this was also taken into account, ie if longer distances had to be covered, I could stay on the bus. For shorter distances, people always waited for me or didn't go too fast. So I was able to enjoy Zurich both by bus and on foot. Alfred Baumgartner
