Our tour guide did an excellent job. We learned so much, and had an enjoyable time doing it. We walked and learned and saw.

This was one of the best tours I have ever had, and I have been on a lot of tours! Even through the rain, our guide made this tour awesome! We saw parts of Zurich I do not think many people even know about and he explained the history of Zurich and Switzerland as we went. I really didn't want the tour to end even though my shoes were soaked! I highly recommend taking this tour if you have 2-3 hours in Zurich.
