The world’s first fondue tuk-tuk in Zurich makes for a city tour with a cheesy twist and plenty of white wine.
If auto rickshaws have been navigating Zurich’s streets since 2011, they recently became a lot cheesier. Thomas Matter’s Fondue-eTukTuk combines electric tuk-tuk city tours with Walliser Keller fondue. Where else in the world would you find the first fondue tuk-tuk but Switzerland? Expect to settle down around the caquelon (fondue pot) as your guide whizzes you up and down Niederdorf, across Quaibrücke and along Bahnhofstrasse. A nice touch is the cover on the vehicles that provides privacy from curious passers-by – who tend to look on, amused. The cover provides shelter too, while blankets add welcome warmth. It’s nothing short of a bizarre experience, but it makes for a good night out with friends. The tuk-tuks have space for up to four people, and a bottle of white wine and digestive are included on every 90-minute tour.
