Your Reviews


I know Zurich really well, but I've also learned new things. A fun way to travel through time and learn something at the same time. The VR scenes deserve 5 stars and really look real! 


I tried Cityllusion when I had friends over. And it was really worth it! A city tour of a different kind, so to speak. The performance was super sharp and none of our eyes hurt at the end. It was a lot of fun, I can only recommend it!


Excellent experience! The VR was incredible! The guide showed us some magic places of the beautiful city of Zurich, while telling some interesting stories about it's past. Thank you!

Age: Everyone from age 9
