After a brief introduction, set off on your tour, trundling through the charming streets of downtown and old Zurich to see the landmarks. On route, hear informative live commentary from your driver-guide, and keep your camera ready to record the sights.

Enjoy views of the River Limmat as you follow the waterside Limmatquai, and visit Bellevue, one of Zurich’s main squares, on the fringes of Lake Zurich.

Pass the Villa Falkenstein and chateau-like Landesmuseum, and look around Zurich’s university area and District 5, a trendy neighborhood of bars, galleries, and shops that was once the city’s industrial powerhouse.

Coast by the Im Viadukt indoor market, and check out innovative buildings such as the Prime Tower and extraordinary Freitag Tower, a retail shop housed in a tower of 17 freight containers.

We were traveling with another couple and had just a few hours to see the city highlights. One of the travelers has injuries to his feet so walking distances is a an issue. The tuk tuk tour served our needs perfectly. We had a parked our rental car at the Parkhause Hauptbahnhof and walked to the train station (8 minutes), and then waited from our tour guy. He picked us up (right on time) in front to the main train station (near the taxi pickup area). We saw all the sights mentioned and stopped for a few. I had wished we were able to stop a couple more times along the way especially for the Lion Monument. That went by too fast. Our tour guy was excellent. He answered all our questions along the way as well as educated us during the tour. It was a delightful, easy way to see the city and really saved our feet.

This was a fabulous way to get an overall view of Zurich. Our guide Atill (I am hoping to have spelt his name correctly!) was really wonderful, full of knowledge of the area, happy and a willing photographer to snap us with some great backgrounds. We stopped at 3 of his food/restaurant recommendations - all were great! I HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Loved our tuk tuk tour and thoroughly enjoyed our tour guide, Stephanos. He was very informative, knowledgeable, and provided us with the historical aspects that we asked for. In spite of rain and heavy traffic, Stephanos never let any of that distract him from keeping us informed and involved.

The tuk tuk tour was fabulous! Our driver guided us around Zurich for 90 minutes. He spoke about every area we were in and was very informative! It was well worth while!

I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide, Stephan was a very nice guy. We were new to Zurich and there was some misunderstanding on the hotel pick up, he waited one hour thirty minutes for us and we started the tour. He was knowledgeable and told all attractions in downtown Zurich. Very comprhensive tour if you have little time in Zurich.

Good quick introduction to the city and its topography.

Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable with a fun sense or humour. The tour was just the right length. Ive did find it a little chilly but if we had the sides down we would have missed too much of the scenery. As it was the white section of the vinal partition made it difficult to see.

with just an evening to see Zurich,the Tuk-Tuk tour was a great idea as in an hour and a half we had ventured into lanes and cobbled streets, and through the old town, and had glimpses of the popular buildings and monuments and the Zurich lake..We were given stops where we could take pictures. luckily,with daylight until 9pm it was worth taking the 7 pm slot. The Tuk TUk was comfortable and clean but The only sad part was that only 4 people at a time are allowed in the tuktuk and since we were 5 we had to ride separately. Apparently the guide in the other vehicle was extremely knowledgable and left me wishing i had been there. Our driver cum guide was very friendly and warm but i would have been happier with more knowledge.All in all,it was a happy experience and we were glad we opted for it.

Instructions as to where to get the tour were not accurate on the map and sent us to the opposite side of the train station. Tour and guide were good. Tourist information center staff needs more information on Tuk Tuk tours
• Submitted 09 Sep 2016
This was a strange tour. The areas our tour guide/driver stopped were questionable and our group felt not appropriate, i.e. red light district. The guide was personable and polite, but the tour route was not that impressive. Some interesting facts about the city were given.

This tuk tuk driver was dangerous. Drove like a maniac and was impossible to understand with his Turkish accent.
