Martin pickup us up promptly at our hotel and took us to Rhine Falls. Since we did not stay there for the full allotted time, he took us to some others sights. We enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend him.

We’re a family of 4 (we had a 7 month old daughter) booked a sightseeing trip in zürich, Mr.Martin contacted me couple of days before the trip to confirm the need of the infant chair, the car was comfortable and he was on time, he’s information about the places was very helpful, from all the trips we took when we were in Zürich this one was the best and Mr.Martin was the one to make it the best Me and the family can’t thank him enough

We did a half day excursion with Martin. Martin picked us up from our hotel in a very nice and clean vehicle and took us to Rhein River Falls and gave us an excellent tour of the castle and the falls. It was breathe taking experience. We then went to steinamrhein for the Christmas markets, going to steinamrhein anytime of year is GORGEOUS. Martin is very knowledgeable, patient, well mannered and accommodating. We had a lot of fun on this excursion and all that came with having him drive us which included views of the countryside, Swiss alps and small villages. 10/10 recommend Martin!
