★Zurich Walking Tour - Legends, Secrets & Hidden Doors, and History Uncovered - Major Highlights & Landmarks Included.

❤︎ Welcome! A perfect time to (re)discover this charming city with a local, stroll through unassuming yet alluring alleys and explore some remarkable hidden & secret places.

Beyond conventional tours, the heart of Zurich Old Town reveals its chronicles & legends and surprises those who have ventured of-the-beaten-track.

Myths bring us nearer to our past, culture, and Zeitgeist. They give us a glimpse into bygone eras and beliefs and encourage us to understand how we explained life itself. History unfolds at every step!

This stroll gives you an overview of the city's Highlights, Local Secrets & Trivia, and History. Together we will literally turn Zurich InsideOut!

We will have plenty of time to take astonishing photos and marvel at Zurich Niederdorf and the Alps from superb scenic spots.

Hi, I am Samantha!

As an avid explorer myself, I avoid huge crowds, yet immensely value insider tips, small personalized groups, and genuine humor. An immersive experience with a local can make a new place feel a bit less alien ❤︎

So I carefully designed the Zurich old town walking tour to take you through time, immerse you in the fabric of local history, and show you secrets hidden in plain sight.

I am genuinely passionate about the transformative power of storytelling: stories, history, and legends can unite and provide insight across cultural, linguistic, or geographical boundaries.

Through unique tales, I strive to make the tour accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Welcome and looking forward to show you Zurich.

Wonderful tour! Samantha was super knowledgeable, engaging and helpful! We learned so much about Zürich that we definitely wouldn’t if we did it alone. Definitely worth it! She even provided us with PDF with places to see and a physical map to use as well. Thank you so much Samantha for an amazing tour and experience!

The tour was really of a high level! The places we visited and Samantha are very special in Zurich! Not every one can visit by their own these secret and unique spots in the city. I felt like being part of the tour in the middle age, very good narration. After this tour I want to move to Zurich!! Certenly I will do this tour again, with other friends and offer it as a gift to my friends. The price is very correct and fair.

This was a birthday present for my husband and we enjoyed our Zürich tour with Samantha very much! We have been living in Zürich for over a year and we go for walks around the city from time to time, however we never went on a real discovery. The city has so much to offer and Samantha could show us its potential for sure! Through Samanthas engaging storytelling we learned about many interesting points from the history, what/who formed the city. We discovered few real hidden gems that we would definitely not see on our own and she also organized a short surprise stop (agreed with me in advanced) for a delicios chocolate cake for my husband´s birthday :-). She also equiped us with many tips what we can do on our own at a later time, much appreciated! I definitely recommend Samantha as your your tour guide through the beautiful city of Zürich, even if you have been living here for some time!
