Learn about the history of Zurich, from its beginnings as a Roman toll road stop to a city with a reputation as one of the most expensive in the world. Hear about Charles the Great, Vladimir Lenin, Albert Einstein and Marc Chagall in Zurich, and see several hidden gems in the city.

Understand the forces that shaped the economic and scientific center of Switzerland as your guide recounts fascinating tales of money, power struggles and fine art. Admire stained glass windows by Chagall and Giacometti in Fraumünster Church; take in the high-priced real estate of Paradeplatz; see where Lenin lived before the Russian Revolution; and admire Grossmünster, a major church that may have been founded by Emperor Charlemagne.

Your guide can customize the tour to your interests. Whether you want to focus on the history of the city, its business environment, or another theme, Zurich has plenty of fascinating angles to explore.

Better than nothing?

None, our tour guide was very much on the surface level. Not much history or commentary. We could have done it on our own following a map. I can’t think of one remarkable fact or story.
Great private tour, highly recommend

Our guide Marie, was lovely! She was a local that was familiar with the city and interesting little tidbits of history and local customs that you love to learn about when visiting a new city. It was raining on and off and it was still a great tour! She even recommended a restaurant for dinner that was very good.
Wonderful tour !

Old town city tour
, Oct 2021
Maria was wonderful. She provided a lot of good information on old town Zürich. She told funny stories about many of the buildings. Her English was excellent. The pace was good. It was a great way to spend two hours getting to know this lovely town.
Unwilling to work with customer

I cannot fairly review this tour. We were scheduled for September 6th, but flight trouble made us late into Zurich. I requested to reschedule the tour or receive a refund, both of which were denied. With the worldwide pandemic, I expect some understanding and willingness to work with customers. For that reason, I am giving Viator a poor recommendation
Interesting tour!

We had such a nice tour of Zürich. April was such a friendly and knowledgeable guide and provided a lot of great detail into the history of this beautiful city.

Had a great tour of Zurich with Maria. Her knowledge of the important landmarks plus tips on where to eat and walk were of great value. Highly recommended.

Our guide was born and raised in Zurich and gave us a wonderful inside view of the city. It is truly a magical place.Thank you!
Informative and interesting
, Oct 2019
We had a really nice young man as a tour guide who really knew Zurich and knew Switzerland very well. His English was so good that we thought he was an native born American although we found out he wasn't. It was raining on and off throughout the tour but he was able to keep us interested and engaged despite the bad weather. We learned a lot and highly recommend this tour.
Excelente guía

El guía Peter fue muy amable, excelente trabajo, todo estuvo genial. Visitamos todo lo que esperábamos
Extraordinaria experiencia
, Nov 2019
Dari resultó una guía extraordinaria. Cercana, amable y sobretodo muy preparada. Durante las dos horas de la visita no dejó de darnos detalles sobre la ciudad, los edificios, los monumentos... incluso sobre la manera de vivir de los Zuriqueses y los Suizos. Todo ello de una manera súper amena y aportando siempre anécdotas muy interesantes. Súper recomendable, sin duda!!
