It was sometimes difficult to understand what building was being talked about unless there was some indication like “the glass building”. The cable car ride was pretty cool; it was. Ore for a view of Zurich than of the Alps. Our guide was very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable, I thought. Overall, a good experience for the money.

I am certain the guide's voice can cure any mild pains, where pills wouldn't be necessary, just a beautiful voice, which was a treat to our ears! I have enjoyed this trip together with my parents and friend, and found the guide, Cristina, very informative and a very pleasant person. I also loved that she provided a bilingual experience (native Spanish and English).

Overall experience is ok. Tour guide is very informative, but most of the tour are done on the bus. Had a 30 mins short walk around the old town. Took a 12 min ferry across lake zurich. Went on a cable car to have top of mountain view of lake Zurich. Saw the magnificent Swiss Alps view on a clear day.
