Basel is another charming old Swiss city. Cynthia gives an excellent tour, and many recommendations for additional sites to visit and restaurants to try. She tailored her presentation to suit our interests. She is polite and pleasant. It was time very well spent.

As a many time ToursByLocals client we found Cynthia to be the best guide we have had. She was thoroughly pleasant to be with and had overwhelming knowledge regarding everything we saw and did. She worked with us to plan the tour and came up with many suggestions to fit our needs. We highly recommend Cynthia as a guide. You will be very impressed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irwin, Thank you for joining me on your Basel visit and for taking the time to share your generous feedback. I very much appreciate it! Warm Regards, Cynthia
Linda DrummondUnited States
Cynthia was a perfect tour guide. She grew up in the US and is raising a family in Basel and as a former history teacher was able to show us the city with it's important historical buildings and events as well as talk to us about the differences in daily life. She accommodated our desire to start the tour an hour later so we could enter the churches after Sunday service and adapted her tour to take into consideration some walking restrictions. I would highly recommend her!! Thank you Cynthia.
Randi Mays-KnappUnited States
Cynthia was charming as our guide for our first day in Basel. She met us at our hotel and provided wonderful commentary on the city. We walked, chatted, took pictures, and learned about the special town of Basel. As an American living in Switzerland, Cynthia was able to provide interesting cultural differences between life in Switzerland and in the States. I appreciated that. After our tour, I felt I could better navigate the city on foot and with public transportation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Randi, Thank you to you and your family for spending time with me. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Also many thanks for taking time to write the feedback. I certainly can make improvements on my tours. I think it is a good suggestion to speak in the opening of the tour about the timing and I can also try to come up with a visual to accompany the introduction. Please send my best wishes to your daughters. Warm Regards, Cynthia

Marc PearceUnited States
Cynthia was fabulous! Knowledge is one thing, but humor and energy took the tour to another level. My wife and I had a great time, learned a lot, and got a view of Basel you just won't get on one of those larger group tours. If you're in Basel and interested in more than just the generic tourist type information, then it's worth every penny to let Cynthia guide you around. 5-star isn't normally an easy call. In this case it was!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marc, My thanks to you for taking time to write this feedback. It was my pleasure to guide you! I hope you enjoyed your time with your family. Warm Regards, Cynthia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, Thank you for the rating and for joining me on a very hot day in Basel. That night was the hottest on record for CH, so it was the best day to wake up at 3:00 in the morning for a flight. Warm Regards, Cynthia

Cynthia was the best guide we have ever had. She is pleasant, knowledgeable and obviously enjoys sharing Basel with visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Coyne, Thank you for the kind words. It was truly my pleasure! Best Regards, Cynthia
Susan PresentUnited States
Cynthia was charming and very informative. She gave our group a diverse tour of the old city, including a short boat ride across the Rhine that was powered only by the current. We especially appreciated her warm replies to our seemingly non-stop questions about what we were seeing and what it was like to live and raise a family in Basel. Thank you, Cynthia!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Thank you and all the ladies in the group. It was a pleasure meeting you all and spending some time with you! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Warm Regards, Cynthia
