Our private tours are limited exclusively to travelers in your party. They are designed to provide a learning experience that is completely tailored to you and your traveling companions. Private tours give you more flexibility with scheduling (you decide when the walk best fits in your trip), the ability to tailor your itinerary (we'll work to match the itinerary to the interests and dynamics of your group), and more personalized time with your guide.
Where do we meet? Where does the tour end?
We usually meet and end near the Rathaus, though we can adjust if needed. Your confirmation email will have the exact meeting point details along with a map, and 24-hour phone number for any last-minute issues.
What if it’s raining?
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your expert will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to be prepared; we encourage keeping an eye on the weather and bringing along an umbrella, sunscreen, water, or a hat as needed.
Is this suitable for children and / or travelers with mobility challenges?
Monica studied history and sociology in Zurich. She has worked as a research assistant at the History Department of the University of Zurich and gained a thorough understanding of Swiss politics, economy and society by working as a journalist and as communications officer for one of the seven federal ministers, the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches in the Swiss capital Bern as well as for private companies. She speaks English, German and French. For her, body and soul are equally important as the mind, so she loves good restaurants, stylish historical hotels and spending time in Switzerland’s beautiful nature. Monica was born in India, went to school in South Africa, did volunteer work in the US and travelled extensively in Europe and Asia.
