A GREAT walk around historic Zurich

Our tour guide Greg was very knowledgeable, and conveyed his love for Zurich to our group. Not only did he share the historical facts, there was also some trivia that he interspersed with the tour to keep it interesting. It was paced well, and without an overload of information to make you want to jump ship! It was a great time spent!
Great guide
