It was just our luck that it was raining during the trip, hence, we did not get to see as much as we wanted at Bern (my fault as I forgot my raincoat). However, the visit to Kambly and Emmentaler and the countryside scenery despite the rain made up for that. And Peter was such an amazing guide that he made sure that we get the most out of the tour despite the weather. He was very warm and helpful with all the guests and accommodated special requests as much as he could. He assisted my friends and I in our request to be dropped off at the nearest train station on the way to Zurich and he even found us the train timings to book for a shorter journey to Interlaken. Would recommend this tour especially if it was Peter who will be the guide.

Lots of fun! It directs the touring trail, gives information about the sites, and adds some fun and games.

Es war sehr schön habe sehr schöne Erfahrungen gemacht. Würde jeden empfehlen. Alle sehr freundlich.

It's a nice and relaxed way to get to know interesting places in Bern.

Great way to see the highlights of Bern at your own pace.
