Why we recommend them?
Other than having a wide range of free tours in different cities, travellers are not required to book the tour in advance. All you have to do is turn up at the tour start location on the day itself! Each of their guides have different specialties and unique interests that are guaranteed to keep you engaged throughout the tour. One of the most popular cities to visit in Switzerland is Zurich. Free Walk Zurich offers a total of 9 public tours, one of which is the Downtown Zurich Tour. It is conducted every day from 1100H onwards. The tour will take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes, and the guide will share about the history of the city, local art and many more stories that have shaped the city to what it is today. The next must visit city will be Lucerne, which is rated Switzerland’s most beautiful city. Free Walk Lucerne will take you to meet the famous symbolic Lion sculpture of Lucerne and hike up the Musegg wall. To top it off, you will also get to enjoy the breathtaking view of the lake and the mountains.
