Huge waste of money, very expensive especially for what you get and our kids were exhausted after the first 6 clues. The English clues are difficult to understand, for 120 Swiss franks ( we ordered the small snack, although didn't end up finding the restaurant) I expected more. The streets it took us down were gorgeous, but we found some... More

I used to live in Zurich and had wanted to do this tour for ages. We were returning to visit and I had high hopes of a fun day out - combining seeing Zurich again, while having fun solving the clues with our kids. It didn't start well when the appointed starting point for our tour wasn't updated to take... More

We went as a group of 6 to do a foxtrail. My impression is following: there are no real quests or puzzles to be solved. You go from check point to check point and there is no difficulty at all to find the next one. If you want to get around Zürich and see parts of the town, than you... More

Interesting concept to discover certain locations of Zurich city. Could be more exciting by providing more difficult challenges and quizes.

This was great fun & a good way to see some of the parts of the city you wouldn't usually see. We were with a couple of friend from Zurich & they even discovered places they had seen - would highly recommend it!

Was a amusing treasure hunt through areas of Zurich that I probably never would have seen if it weren't for Foxtrail! Very enjoyable, very well organized fun trip

Family of 5- we started the Foxtrail at 8:00 AM the day after arriving to Europe. We did the Odysseus Trail which was estimated to take between 2 and 3 hours. It ended up taking us more than 3 hours because we got stuck a few times and had to call the help line. I would imagine that someone familiar... More

This was an awesome activity and a great way to see the city. The intent of the activity is to follow clues around the city as you stay ahead of the crafty fox. The clues in many cases are hidden in plain sight and are part of store fronts, fountains, and other city attractions. The entire activity took us a... More

We were already on vacation when we were emailed the instructions (quite some time after making our reservations) so we had to have our hotel print the instructions for us. The instructions should include some information such as make sure your cell phone battery is fully charged, start early in the day, have a city map with you, make sure... More
