Rolf was very knowledgeable & polite. He would give us random facts as we were driving and even as we walked along the harbor.

This tour was great. It included everything- a bus ride through the city, a funicular ride to a beautiful scenic overlook, a boat ride on the lake, snd of course chocolate!

A bit disappointing. Our guide was nice, but not very enthusiastic or informative. Not the best experience, as he took us walking through a construction zone and we had to climb over barriers while being chided by the workers.

Absolute waste of money. This “tour” was so bad we left half way through it. The monotone driver put my spouse to sleep with the lack of information of the driving tour - mind you we couldn’t see much because of the road construction and detours. After some mid tour googling it was easier to get a cab and self guide the remainder of the tour, skipping another 2+ hours of terrible driving/riding in a van with no informative value. I would rather pay the full price again to avoid going on that tour than go on it for free. Save yourself the time, take 10 minutes on google maps and get a good pair of walking shoes, guarantee you’ll enjoy it more that this tour. For reference I’ve taken guided tours across 5 countries now and this is hands down the worst one.
