Everything was nice, Raimond (guide) and Mark (driver) were awesome, so I just need to thank them and recommend the trip :)

As an advice: Check the weather, in our cause we were lucky because there was basically no clouds and we've enjoyed the view.

This was an extraordinary day! Barbara was one of the best tour guides I have ever had! She was personable, knowledgeable and accessible. The trip itself is a MUST DO in Zurich. You’ll see sights unlike most! This was a well run tour and worth the money!
