Brilliant tour around Basel. As a first time traveler to Basel the tour gave a wonderful insight to the history and creation of this beautiful city.
Tour commentary was very extensive and informative. Great tour to familiarize yourself on arrival.
Maria was an excellent tour guide. She alternated between English and German for her guests which were split fairly evenly. Understanding a little German, it was clear that she was imparting the same information to both groups and showed no favoritism even though the German seemed to take a little longer, that's just the vagaries of the language.
It was a hot afternoon and Maria did her best to find shade for us when possible and gave us a break and chance to sit for a while during our visit to the cathedral. She also showed us the public drinking stations which are located throughout the city and provided glasses we could use to stay hydrated. Maria was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of taking this tour and learning a bit more about Basel.
Interesting tour with lots of variety in the areas showcased and the related stories. Participants were organized into smaller groups based on language preference, enabling the guides to give unilingual presentations and cover much more than would otherwise be possible. Pace was relaxed but efficient. Our guide spoke excellent English.
This was a fun exploration of a small part of Basel. The tour guide was knowledgeable, clear and entertaining. I would recommend. It is not strenuous and is appropriate for all ages and abilities.
Superb experience. I guide was very good.
Really enjoyed learning about the beautiful city of Basel. English speaking guide, a leisurely stroll of the historic sites.
Good tour with a small group, Very enjoyable.
Booked English speaking tour. Got German/English. We would have been okay with split language, if equal time to each.. Not so. English version was a fraction of the German version. The sites were interesting and the guide was knowledgeable but lost interest before the conclusion and left due to having to listen to a language I don't understand for large stints of time. Also, the guide was soft spoken so very hard to hear her when near congestion, which was large portion of the tour.

Caroline, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and interesting, however, we were disappointed as the tour was in both Germen and English and made the tour very long and tedious. We feel there should have been 2 tour guides for the number of people.
The tour was lead in both English and German. The tour guide would most of the time speak in German, with only a few sentences summary after that in English. The guide also spoke quite quiet and it was very difficult for us the hear her.
