“Take a walk through history, it's free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

I don't actually go on that many walking tours. I usually take a hop-on hop-off bus when I go to a new city, but I think Zurich downtown is actually small enough that you get to see and hear a lot of interesting historical stories without having to walk too terribly much. I do have to admit that I'm living in Zurich and just had some friend visiting from out of town, which is why I tagged along on this tour. I'm so glad I did though, because I really enjoyed it and learned a lot of new interesting things about the city. I would definitely recommend it; a must go, especially if it's good weather!

“Learn about Zurich!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

would recommend you do this tour first day you get there. Get a general background on the city and get your bearings. It was a pretty good tour that takes you through the main sights and a few off the beaten path sites. There wasn't muchh to see but zurich is fairly small, and when you're done you feel like you've seen a lot. Also, some good view points over the city on the tour. You even get to go into a church which you rarely get to do on walking tours.

“Free downtown tour was great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Our tour took us to grand churches, through tiny picturesque lanes with unique shops and cafés, and atop the old Roman fort with a gorgeous view of the river and universities. Loved it!

“Very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

We have done the free walking tours in a couple of cities in Europe. Note - they aren't really free. You are expected to tip at the end of the tour, but the idea is you pay if you were happy with it.
Maria was very nice. The tour took us through the highlights of the center of Zurich in about 90 minutes. A great way to see the city.

“Wonderful tour with a knowledgeable and engaging guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

I really liked the quality and the scope of the tour. The tour guide Maria was very good and fun so the tour was never boring. Zurich is a wonderful walkable city with so much to see and learn. Because of the wonderful guide It was a great experience even in the miserable rainy weather. Highly recommend.
