Interlaken at the right pace and level of detail. Los of fun all the way around. Cannot believe this is free - just a few CHFs for a tip.

To a college student the word "free" really draws you in! This walking tour was so interesting, fun, and useful that I was prompted to tip our tour guide generously! He did such a great job showing us around the city and even taking us up on a light trail! This is a must while in Interlaken! Made my day!

I understand it is a free service and highly appreciated but we were not told to be cancelled after waiting for half an hour at the meeting point. Lastly, a guy showed up from the office and...

An excellent local guide that told us all about the history and legends of Interlaken, very fun and provided us with treats along the way! Highly, highly recommend this as a fun way to explore the city and to discover the places to see/things to do as well.

What a great way to see the history of Interlaken. Our tour guide was Tim and he knew his town and was so passionate in explaining it to us. We were very fortunate as it was sunny with a lot of snow. The tour gives you a quick (2 hour) snap shot of the city and some beautiful sights. We... More

What a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Our guide was Manuel and he was so knowledgeable and passionate about sharing his views on Switzerland. The cheese tasting was fantastic, and of course everyone loves the chocolate shop visit. Here too the staff were so passionate about good chocolate and I really learnt something.

Nina was our tour guide. We met out of a backpacker's hostel at 11 am and went for a walk around Interlaken, around the rivers, and up to some great scenic views. We were given a handful of sweets to snack on and took some pictures. Nina was really great! She told us all about Interlaken and was really knowledgable... More
