Lars is the freaking man. So cool, so knowledgable, super fun, and the GOAT tour guide. Definitely check this tour out
Great overview of Zurich

Our tour guide Daniel was excellent. He was attentive and shared his knowledge of Zurich and surrounding areas with humor. The view from the top of the cable car was exceptionally beautiful as we had a clear and sunny day. The tour moved right along and oriented us for the remainder of our trip. We were able to go back and spend more time in old town and the museum in the following days. Daniel recommend a great Swiss restaurant for us to try following the tour. I would recommend this tour.
