What people are saying about Basel

Although the children (12, 14) were not very enthusiastic at first, their ambition and joy of discovery was quickly awakened and we were able to enjoy an interesting and varied tour through Basel.

Very good experience. The description is wrong, saying that they are complicated questions because they are not true. They're quite easy and you're going to remember the city so much.

We really enjoyed this hunt through the city. This allows us in one day to know these key points. To be repeated each time you visit a new city.

Well done, you can get to almost every corner of Basel

You have to be good on foot, but otherwise just good. Small tip to the organizer, check the order of the cards

Super overview of many sights of Basel. Exciting history. We recommend.
