I had Lars Faber as our tour guide and he is very professional, patient and knowledgeable. Great experience!

Guide was verybgood. Got on the bus and found out the Felsenegg Cable Car, closed for maintenance. Extremely disappointing. Should have been told when we booked. Far too much money for what we did.

Loved the walking tour of Old Town and the ferry across the lake. A truly tremendous program, with a great tour guide.

Our tour guide was very well versed in every spot we passed by on the coach bus, as well as each spot we were able to stop off at to walk around. She had a form that collected each participant along with where they were visiting from, which I believed led her to decide which languages to speak along the tour. She provided fun facts and important info in both English and Spanish for our group, allowing for questions and a comfortable experience all around! My friends/colleagues and I were very pleased and agree that this tour is great for those visiting Zurich with a short timeframe but wish to see a lot - we came by train for just a weekend while on a work trip in France. The tour covered a lot of ground and were able to easily navigate to any place we wished to see further once we left the tour.
