Florence was a great guide in the city of Basel, showing us everything we wanted to see and much more. I highly recommend taking this excursion, which not only shows you the city, but also part of the local life of the place

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.

Francis was most accommodating by picking me up at the Viking port. We covered a lot of ground on our tour and she was very helpful in directing me how to get to my next destination

Good balance of talking & silence, good knowledge of Basel history bit not over-whelming you with too much detail.

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