A Recent Review of this tour

We had an overnight layover in Zurich & wanted to see some of the main points of interest. Markus did a great job, planning the tour, specifically for us! He was knowledgeable, informative and also shared some traditional Swiss treats & even a recipe, w/ is! He recommended a local restaurant, for our evening meal. It was perfect! Many thanks, to Markus, for a very memorable Zurich experience!
