About this activity
Go on a journey back through all the epochs. There can be few other cityscapes where buildings dating back as far as the fifteenth century engage so harmoniously and vibrantly with the contemporary creations of internationally distinguished architects. On our tour, you will be told all about Basel and the background to its development while passing historic buildings such as the city hall, the Basel cathedral and the Barfüsserkirche. Also a lot about the city's present situation will be explained. Besides from being taken to some picturesque corners of the Old Town, you'll be shown places that closely reflect Basel's present-day Zeitgeist, such as the Museum der Kulturen and the Tinguely fountains.

Excellent tour very thorough and covered much of the old town. Full of interesting stories about the city and the Swiss.

Booked English speaking tour. Got German/English. We would have been okay with split language, if equal time to each.. Not so. English version was a fraction of the German version. The sites were interesting and the guide was knowledgeable but lost interest before the conclusion and left due to having to listen to a language I don't understand for large stints of time. Also, the guide was soft spoken so very hard to hear her when near congestion, which was large portion of the tour.

Brilliant tour around Basel. As a first time traveler to Basel the tour gave a wonderful insight to the history and creation of this beautiful city. Tour commentary was very extensive and informative. Great tour to familiarize yourself on arrival.

Maria was an excellent tour guide. She alternated between English and German for her guests which were split fairly evenly. Understanding a little German, it was clear that she was imparting the same information to both groups and showed no favoritism even though the German seemed to take a little longer, that's just the vagaries of the language. It was a hot afternoon and Maria did her best to find shade for us when possible and gave us a break and chance to sit for a while during our visit to the cathedral. She also showed us the public drinking stations which are located throughout the city and provided glasses we could use to stay hydrated. Maria was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of taking this tour and learning a bit more about Basel.
