Switzerland revealed

Greg was a fantastic guide, we learnt so many interesting facts about the Swiss! An easy walk, revealing the old town, lots of quirky facts and figures, traditions and discoveries, including a delicious brand of chocolate, which amply filled my suitcase when we left for home the next day! After the tour ended we retraced our steps. I Definitely recommend this small group tour.
This was one of the best tours I...

This was one of the best tours I have ever had, and I have been on a lot of tours! Even through the rain, our guide made this tour awesome! We saw parts of Zurich I do not think many people even know about and he explained the history of Zurich and Switzerland as we went. I really didn't want the tour to end even though my shoes were soaked! I highly recommend taking this tour if you have 2-3 hours in Zurich.
