Thomas was a wonderful tour guide! Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teens) all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. His vehicle is big, comfortable and super clean. He provided a customized tour that fit our time schedule and was extremely knowledgeable of the area and provided fun facts all along the way. He was thoughtful, caring and funny! Thanks for a lovely tour.

Taking on Zurich with my daughters on a 5 day jaunt was daunting. Thank goodness for Thomas. We booked him for 3 days and my only regret is not tape recording him to be able to reflect on the immense amount of history, knowledge of art and culture that he shared with us. Trips to Lucerne and Inter-Laken, Brienze, Rheinfels Castle etc were wonderful. Thomas offered restaurant recommendations and made reservations as well. We can't wait to return and book Thomas again to guide us on another adventure!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Adam Thanks so much for your words! Please, don't forget that you have a second home, Switzerland! and for sure a friend! Hope to see you soon again. Bless and my best wish for xmas and succes Thomas PS. My bless also for your daughters!

We booked a 4 day private tour with Thomas. We had the Zurich city tour, visit to Stein am Rhein, Schaffhausen and Rheinfalls, Jungfraujoch Alpine Tour, Heidiland tour. Thomas is very punctual and very knowledgeable. We had a fantastic time and had Thomas plan the entire itinerary. He is also an excellent driver and knows the country inside and out. Would highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed. We plan to use him again anytime we visit Zurich.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Igor Thanks so much for this wondeful review! Whish you and your family all the best and hope to recieve you soon again! My warmest regards Thomas

Tour: #409115, Pilatus Tour, Zürich, Switzerland    view tour
Date: Aug 5/19

Thomas' day-long Pilatus tour was a delightful revelation, exposing us, as it did to Lucerne and then the awesome natural wonders of Zurich's amazing massif. Thomas is enormously knowledgeable, experienced, personable and accommodating. In addition, owing to his decades of experience, he is a superb driver. If you have a day to spare when visiting Zurich, you can't possibly invest it better than to experience Pilatus with Thomas' expert guidance. (Be sure not to miss the "church without windows" en route.

We booked a tour with Thomas after a previous guide had to cancel and Thomas was more than happy to customize a tour to fit our needs. Thomas is awesome! He communicated with us leading up to the tour and we have shared pictures and conversations after the tour. He went out of his way to make sure all aspects of our day were flawless plus he added sites that we had not discussed. We highly recommend Thomas for your tours! We rate Thomas 5 + stars. He is the best!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. & Mr. Selectman My greatest gratitude for you and to you! Thanks for your confidence. Best regards Thomas

Another great tour with a ToursByLocals guide, we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Thomas was very commutative / informative during and post tour. He tailored the tour and travel to fit our personal agenda. Our Jungfraujoch Alpine Tour experience was excellent. The comfortable vehicle travel to and from and not to forget the Cog train ascent to the "Top Of Europe" along with the lunch recommendations and meal choice was also excellent.

Thomas B was prefect for our group. He clearly knows all of the important information about Switzerland but is much more internationally informed and he shared some of his interesting history with us as well. He did an excellent job of fitting the tour to our wishes and found very pleasant and off normal tour experiences and stops for us. The castle lunch that we was able to arrange at the last minute was the highlight. We could not have been happier with the day or with Thomas.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Mark! As you already know, thanks for your confidence in ToursByLocals and me. Best regards to your wonderful family! Thomas

Thomas was very knowledgeable of Switzerland and Lichtenstein and was early for our pick-up time. He drove well and was hospitable and stopped in a number of picturesque places. The only disappointment was that we ate at a Raleigh Chateau restaurant in Lichtenstein and bought him a delicious lunch. He then acted disappointed when we didn't tip him. The meal was about 100 euros which was more than a generous tip.

Thomas B is a phenomenal tour guide! His energy, persistence, and determination are invaluable assets! I provided Thomas with a list of sites in the Basel - Land Canton. Some of the sites were very difficult to find. Without Thomas's great sense of direction and determination, our visit to ancestral sites would not have happened. We truly appreciate Thomas's efforts. He never gave up even when the roads were closed and directions were poor. Many thanks Thomas!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Mr. Gibson Thanks so much for the review, it was a memorable day with you! Please feel always welcome! Best regards Thomas

My 10 year old daughter and I had a great time with Thomas. He took us to three castles, a village with houses from the 17th century, a formed walled city, a fortress, and of course the Rhine Falls. This is my third trip with one of my daughters and choosing a private guide rather than a group tour was definitely the correct decision. My daughter's review "amazing guide, good sense of humor, great explanations". Definitely memories that will stay with us for a long time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert and Fiona, thanks so much for this review. It was a pleasure for me to serve you! Best regards Thomas

We spent a wonderful day with Thomas, leaving from Zurich, taking the cable car and cog railway up to Kaltbad and hiking down the Mark Twain trail. Thomas then gave us a tour of Lucerne. It was a full and fun day. Thomas is outstanding - informative & interesting. Great insight into the history as well as present issues in Switzerland - highly recommend!

All eight of us loved our tour. Thomas was professional, funny, mindful of our needs and shared a wealth of information/history about Zurich (and Switzerland). We wanted to go to the Lindt chocolate factory, so he took us there and we were able to buy chocolate to eat on our river cruise and take home to friends. He also took us to the best sausage place in Zurich for lunch, which we thoroughly enjoyed. All eight of us would highly recommend Thomas.

This tour with Thomas was great and we managed to cover itinerary according to the short time we had in Zurich. Thomas was well informed and had the ability to provide just enough information per the need of the group. He was good with the kids as well andkept them interested of the tour. Although short, we enjoyed the tour very much.

Thomas is an amazing guide and amazing person - my husband and i had a great time with him, during our private tours. we booked three days of tours and they were all incredible!! he was knowledgeable and friendly and Thomas made our visit to Zurich very special - i feel like we saw more of Zurich in the 5 days we were there than if we would had stayed longer and not had Thomas as our tour guide - i truly recommend him and tours by locals - very professional and great tour person and company -

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Mrs. Perez for this feedback. Please feel welcome whenever you come again to Switzerland. Warmest regards Thomas
