Every Group is different - so it is not easy to say how long a tour will take. I like to be a bit spontaneous about that, so I avoid to plan a date right after the tour. If it feels right to take more time we can extend.

A Recent Review of this tour

Veronique gave us a fantastic tour of Zürich catering to our interests and being very considerate and inventive in dealing with the fact that one of the party had an injury that made walking difficult. She explained Z past and present, slipped us into some magical places and left us loving the place as much as she does.
