About the Guru

Welcome to Zurich! I love my city and I love telling its histories and reveal its secrets. I've always loved it, as my mum often tell, I've been doing this since I was a little girl. That's why I cannot stop performing this great hostess sense of mine! As I studied History and Art of History at the University of Zurich I got to know the city first-hand, so join me and enjoy it!

About the Tour

In 1875 the magic formula of milk chocolate was invented in Switzerland, since then manufacturing is characterized by being a meticulous, homemade, perfectionist and innovative process, using selected ingredients and little sugar. Each Swiss consumes an average of between 11 and 12 kilos of chocolate per year. In this tour you will taste and understand why their chocolate delicacies have such a good reputation, are you going to leave here without tasting the most precious delicacy of the Helvetic Country? For two hours you will visit the most charismatic places in the city and the most emblematic chocolatiers, which will make you understand the taste for the meticulous work of the Helvetics. Through the history of chocolate we will get to know the following parts of the city: - The Bahnhofstrasse shopping street - The fundamental cathedrals: Frauenmünster and Grossmünster - The old quarter of bars and restaurants: Niederdorf - Lake Zurich and its urban shore Through this tour you will discover why this civic nucleus is so special and why Zurich is one of the cities with the highest quality of life on the planet as well as being the richest, largest and most charismatic in Switzerland. You will see that here are attractive places with fascinating stories and almost hidden corners that, without knowing them, go easily unnoticed. Come to know all this during the Chocolate Route!

No apareció Cristina, y ahora después de varios días después me ha respondido . Se disculpa y comenta que por la pandemia no está funcionando. Sería conveniente que lo cambiaran en guru

Response from Cristina
Hola Sony, una pena que hayas interpretado así mis emails. Ten en cuenta que en estos momentos cada uno vive la pandemia según su propia situación (local, laboral, familiar, sanitaria, etc.) y por eso, hay que ser muy precavido a la hora de juzgar a los demás. Un saludo y de nuevo, disculpas.

Cristina ha sido amable y muy didáctica, nos ha contado muchas cosas curiosas de Suiza, la forma de vida de los suizos y tambien de su relación con el chocolate. Nosotros esperábamos más temática sobre el cacao y más sitios relacionados con la fabricación de chocolate.

Response from Cristina
Gracias por vuestros comentarios que, por supuesto, tendré en cuenta. Feliz estancia.
