I recently booked a day trip with girlfriends to Basel from Strasbourg France so I can visit a small part of Switzerland and see their Christmas Markets. Our guide, Mike, met us at the train station and started our 3-4 hr tour from the train. It was great to have him greet us there. He had a sign with my name on it. We had other friends who also went to Basel for the day but did not take the city tour. The positives are we loved having a walking tour of the city as it's beautiful. Mike did a great job telling us the history.He gave us some time to shop as we requested. The negatives: I've never had a guide offer to give us local currency in exchange for Euros. I felt that was a red flag. I already researched that Basel markets would accept Euros and credit cards. He told us they would not. None of us took the exchange. We moved on and started the tour. We saw some great sites and all was good. Our tour was to end at 4 hrs. We were meeting up with our friends at the market and then had to get the train back to Strasbourg. We had to ask him kindly several times to take us back to the market where we started to meet our friends. We were already 30 min over our time. He then suggested, our friends join the tour and go for another hour. We told him no. Finally, I had to ask him several times to take us back or we have to get an uber. He said there was no ubers, or trams to take us back. We started feeling a little concerned. I had to tell him again, that we needed to meet our friends. Finally, he took us to the market. I was so stressed from this, I did not even buy one thing or see the market. I just wanted to get on the train and back to Strasbourg. It started great, but ended poorly. I believe his is very talented and knowledgeable, but did not listen to us. I would not suggest him as a guide.

Great guide (Michael) - prompt, informative, friendly and very much the gentleman. I'd suggest having the guide produce identification because we had no way of knowing it was Viatir guide other than he knew my name and guessed it was me waiting outside the hotel.

Sean was nothing short of amazing. Beyond knowledgeable yet able to deliver tons of history that was user friendly to two women who aren’t typically history buffs. Was deeply invested in us having the tour we wanted and clearly loves Basel.

Tour guide took time to explain everything, very knowledgeable. Was not in a rush, we were his main concern.

I booked my private tour for 2:00 pm and was confirmed and the night before I received a text telling me they were picking us at 9:15 am which was impossible since we arrived late the day before from a trip from the USA that’s why we booked the Tour at 2:00 pm the following day. Of course no reimbursement or opportunity to change our reservation. Very dissatisfied.
