based on 98 reviews

Natalia offered 3 tours. We chose her tour about how immigrants esp. during the Baltic War were settled in Zürich. It focused on how the immigrants had to adjust to life & culture in Switzerland & how Switzerland adjusted to their needs. It showed a different part of town & cultural needs now and in the past as the government works to address needs of minority & immigration groups . Natalia was very warm & friendly. We felt we had made a new friend. She is an immigrate from Columbia & developed this tour as part of her masters thesis .

Everything went so smoothly!! Enzo was an amazing tour guide!! He was very approachable and he knew so much about the location. Plus he definitely catered to the private tour as we took our time by the Matterhorn. Thank you for making our dream come true!!

It's a great experience and a cool unique way to see the city of Zurich. Meat was eaten on a hot stone. Tip: If you don't like it bloody, you should cut the meat into small pieces right at the beginning, because the stone cools down quickly.

We were so fortunate to be there on the holiday. Liliana showed us so much and her love of Zurich was amazing

Very cool done. Friendly guide, really great food, learned a lot about Zurich and a really fun experience.
