I'd highly recommend an Old Town Walking Tour for any newcomer to Zurich. Samantha was our expert guide and met us early at the hotel to discuss our adventure, what we wanted to do and see & of course her suggestions. Samantha is enthusiastic and so knowledgeable of the history of Zurich and the surrounding area. Although this was not our first visit to Zurich, our last visit in 2019 was more of a self guided tour. We saw and learned so much more in just the few hours we spent traversing the old city with Samantha and she took us to secret little gems within the city that most do not get to see and experience. She not only taught us a lot of the history but tips on using public transportation and where to grab a nice meal. Time well spent.

Baba was a wonderful guide. Rarely have I seen such enthusiasm in a city guide. Her knowledge of the city is virtually encyclopaedic! Her English is excellent, and in a mixed group of 20 English and German speakers, she made sure that neither language group was left out. Her descriptions were at all times clear and audible, in spite of competition from building works on the Bahnhofstrasse and trams on the Limmatquai.
I have lived in the Zurich area for over 35 years, and I worked in Zurich City for ten, but I was curious to know more about the City. It the 2 hours of the tour I learned a lot more than I had ever imagined.
Definitely to be recommended for tourists and residents alike!

We booked the walking old town tour. And we decided to left it after 1 hour because it was totally useless! It was a group of 4 people (two french and two English speakers) and the guide explained all things in french and nothing in English! I would like to return my money ! Because I don’t see the point why I should pay for french tour when I am English speaker! (And in tour description it says that you will have the same experience in both languages)

The weather was perfect for this walking tour on that day. We started at the train station and ended at Fraumunster.
We went through some parts of Zurich that I wouldn't have known to go to otherwise. Our guide was very pleasant and very knowledgeable.
