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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard. I am sorry that you had a few disappointments in Zurich - you did not like the Hotel, the Uber didn't work well etc. But you didn't seem to be dissatisfied with the tour. That's why I'd appreciate very much if you tell me how I could have done better. Just a few words with the star-rating so I can do better next time. Thank you!

My family (me, husband and 2 teenagers) had a walking tour of Zurich with Veronique who gave us a great tour through the city in just a few hours. Zurich is beautiful and we enjoyed Veronique's stories and the unique places that we visited, telling us about its economic importance, the financial district, religion and the reformed church - she made it so interesting that even my kids were paying attention! Zurich is beautiful and we will come back and ask Veronique to give us a tour again!

We only had one day in Zurich due to a long layover and wanted to take advantage of the time. Veronique was a perfect fit, filling out time with useful history, well-timed stories, and interesting factoids. I felt like I knew the city as well as I could for such a short time and my 12 yo daughter and I very much enjoyed our time with her.

Veronique was a wonderful guide. We had a thorough tour of the old city that was enhanced by her knowledge of the history of the places we were visiting. She also included visits to hidden gardens, churches with stain glass that did not appear in the guidebooks, and the interiors of buildings that have beautiful art work painted on the walls and ceilings. It was truly an insider's tour that we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you, Veronique!!!

Veronique is the perfect guide for the Old Town of Zurich. My wife and I were really pleased with the overall knowledge of the city and special spots and areas that Veronique knew. She was extremely well versed in all aspects of the city and was really a pleasure to talk to. For a quick and personalized tour of Zurich, I doubt there are much better guides than Veronique. We absolutely recommend her to anyone in Zurich and would welcome the opportunity to tour with her again!!!!

Veronique was great. She easily got to know our likings, our interests, etc. She did not pack the tour with dates, history and such. Just enough to place us in a certain time frame and she gave us all the important information about Zurich. She spent more time than expected with us, probably because we were asking too many questions, but she was very elegant and tolerant about it all. We loved the tour and she easily made us love Zurich the way she loves her city !

Veronique was very knowledgeable about Zurich and it's history. She customized our tour for our needs. We went places that most tourists don't have an opportunity to see. We stopped for a bite to eat in a wonderful restaurant with all the Christmas trimmings with the best soup. You won't go wrong with a tour by Veronique.

Veronique was pleasant at all times and we were not unhappy with our time together though we thought her knowledge of history (thought islam was a very old religion) and her seeking out what WE might be interested in seeing was not what we'd expected. She recommended and took us for lunch after our lunch to a place historically interesting but depressing and claustrophobic which we left after we were certain she'd gone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sad that you did not tell me what you were interested in when we met. I am always glad to learn about traveller's wishes! Working as a Tour Guide I try to improve my historical knowledge all along - so thank you for drawing my attention to an incorrect yeardate.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sorry about Paul´s experience and we are sure Veronique will make an effort to improve her knowledge.

We had a wonderful time with Veronique! She spent time with us showing us her lovely city from all different sides. She took us into place that not everyone can go into. Like a church that was a library and she had a key to it. We went into a locked side streets and saw unusually homes and history of the city. She is very good and walked a pace that we enjoyed the day exploring the city. There was four of us and we all would highly recommend using Veronique . Thanks for making the city come alive for us!

We did this tour on a day stopover in Zurich. Veronique took us thru the town and showed us many of the main sights, with detailed explanations. The pace was easy and non-rushed. Best part is she was able to take us to places that tourists cannot see--including UNDER the city in old sewer systems, and into an off-limits cathedral. Well-worth it and recommended.

Veronique met us at our hotel and we walked around viewing the highlights of Zurich. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the city, the churches, and all the places to see. This allowed us an overview so that we could decide where to spend our time during the rest of our stay in the city. She was a real trooper, as it rained very hard during our tour, but she still provided an excellent tour. She grew up in Zurich, so she could provide a keen insight for guests to the city.

Veronique was completely charming and took us on a lovely tour of the Old Town, showing us not only the main sights, but a few offbeat ones as well (ceiling of police station, old sewer system, interesting side alleys). She was on time (actually early) in meeting us and immediately asked us how much walking vs. resting we would like to do. We also appreciated that she acknowledged when she didn't know the answer to our question instead of trying to make something up.

Very nice lady but a terrible guide. We have visited over 100 countries and have never had such a weak guide. She couldn't answer simple questions (population of Zurich?) historical dates and facts, and was disorganized. Tour was expensive and we were embarrassed to ask our friends for half. We will not book a ToursbyLocals again if she is a typical guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wish you had told me in what you were interested - that way we could have changed the whole experience. I remember, that the women were listening while the men strolled behind us, chatting, not taking part at all. I didn't know how to get your Attention.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Mr Mayhall's negative comments not only caught Veronique by surprise but made her extremely upset. After a long thread of emails between her, her guide manager and Mr Mayhall, the situation was dealt with accordingly with all parts satisfied.
