On this fast-paced tour, the city reveals its chronicles to those who have dared to choose something different: a tour off-the-beaten-track! This Zurich City Walk is like no other!

A Zurich native, chocolate lover & a professional Expat for I have lived in over a dozen countries. And as an avid traveler myself, I avoid humongous cookie-cutter tours like the plague, yet immensely appreciate insider tips, genuine humor, and personalized tours.

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.

On this walking tour of Zurich, you will be immersed in the city's culture, traditions, myths, and history. Welcome!

I got in touch with Samantha to book a tour with her as a gift for my newly-wed friends who were about to move to Zurich. Communicating with Samantha was easy and she went out of her way to make a beautiful graphic with details of the experience that I could print out to put in their wedding card. Such a special gesture! My friends had a great time and said the following about their tour: ‘Samantha is one of the best tour leaders we’ve ever experienced - flexible, friendly and super fun, she made every place we visited exciting and interesting and we saw many places we would never find alone! It was a real pleasure. ’ We would all highly recommend booking your tour with Samantha!

Samantha has deep knowledge of the area and was extremely wonderful in touring me around and taking me to hidden gems of Zurich, places only known to a few. I had a great time. Thanks Samantha.

Fantastic introduction to Zurich! It was my first time visiting, the 1-hour tour was interesting & informative, including special unique spots. Samantha was an absolutely lovely, warm, welcoming host & engaging storyteller. It's January, & I was cold (be sure to dress warmly: fingerless gloves for taking pictures would have been ideal!:)), so the 1-hour tour was perfect before I was ready to warm up indoors. Highly recommended, Samantha was outstanding. She's lived in the USA so her understanding of English and my culture was helpful in translating info.
