Your Experience Host
I took the walking tour with Samantha with my family and really enjoyed it. We live in Ontario but I grew up in the Zürich area and know the city well. Wanted to show my adult kids the outer cracks of the old downtown with a slice of history attached. Samantha gave me exactly that in a fun way. Samantha is very professional, high-energy, knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend her.
