What You Can Expect

Best Private Tour: Zurich Walking Tour

Stroll through the streets of Zurich on your walking tour!

Located just north of the Swiss Alps, Zurich was founded by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago. With its scenic location and numerous financial and cultural institutions, it is frequently named as one of the world's wealthiest cities and best places to live.

Meet your guide at your centrally located Zurich hotel for a walking tour built around the attractions you most want to see. Walking is the best way to really get a feel for this dynamic city. As you make your way around town, your guide will answer your questions and share anecdotes and facts about Zurich, allowing plenty of time for photos.

See Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's main thoroughfare and one of the ritziest shopping streets in the world, and admire clear and placid Lake Zurich. Learn about Albert Einstein's time as a student at ETH Zurich, and see the sublime stained-glass windows by Marc Chagall at Fraumunster Church.

Fill out the rest of your itinerary with whatever you'd like. Stroll through the squares and winding streets of Altstadt (Old Town), seeing Medieval architecture and learning about Zurich's long history. Experience the rich culture of Zurich, which has more than 50 museums and 100 art galleries and a world-class concert hall, the Tonhalle Zurich. Or focus on a specific area of town such as the up-and-coming Zurich West area or ETH Zurich Science City, a picturesque campus of one of the world's preeminent science and technical schools.

Finish your stimulating 2-hour walking tour of Zurich back at your central Zurich hotel or Zurich main station with a clearer idea of what aspects of the city you'd like to explore further.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Trudy met us at our hotel right on time. We were only going to be in Zurich for a short time. So we took a 2 hour walking tour of the city. Trudy packed in as much as possible in that time frame without feeling rushed and even stayed a little longer to take us to where a restaurant we wanted to go to was located. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the history and I would highly recommend her. We very much enjoyed our short stay in Zurich thanks to Trudy.
