We had a wonderful guide, Greg, his knowledge, humor and timing throughout the tour was fantastic. The tour walks you through the old city and Greg gave us an informative narration. We then did the cruise on lake Zurich, a time to rest your feet and take in the lakes views. Finishing with a cable car trip up to a lookout over Zurich to complete the tour. Would highly recommend this tour

I would recommend everyone the tour. There is a chance to explore a city by three types of activities : water , air , land. There was a time for taking photos and enjoying the moment. You can learn some history , facts and at the same time get familiar with new culture and enjoy magnificent views. That is an unforgettable experience. Thank you Greg for a great tour.

Our guide Greg was a wealth of knowledge and had answers for everything we asked. We saw everything we had hoped for on this tour. I especially enjoyed the combo of bus, boat, tram, cable car and polybahn to get around the town. There was a lot of walking but that was expected. Down time was enjoyed during lunch and while on the boat ride. Greg was funny and made everything interesting. Had we not chosen to take this tour there is so much history and trivia we would have missed. It was well worth the money and I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Zurich.
