3 hours to explore the town and have a relaxing chat in a local café

Join me for a walk around Basel's medieval city center and see sights such as the famous town hall and the cathedral and our tiny narrow alleys. As an optional extra we could use of one of the unique ferries that cross the river here in Basel.

Towards the end we can stop and have a cup of tea and a cake at a café and talk a little more about medieval life or what is happening these days here in Basel and everything between.

Of course I can give you ideas about things you could do with you time in Basel when you are not with me so you have an idea what else there is to explore.
