    We were excited to go on this tour however dont be fooled that you are going on a food tour it is not that at all. We were collected at 3.45pm at the station there was only 3 of us on the tour. The traffic was quite busy getting out of the town, we were then told we were stopping at the harbour for pictures which wasnt on the itinerary. Because of this and the traffic it ended up us having 10 minutes to look around the Lindt factory outlet as the shop shut at 5pm. We then went to get in our cable car and go to the top of the mountain for dinner. The dinner was nice, setting stunning , the Fondue was average and the starters basically fried food. I feel a bit cheated by this tour!

    Really enjoyed this tour especially the Cheese Fondue Dinner. View was amazing and great opportunity to pick up some gifts to take home from the Lindt factory.

    This was a very nice tour overall. There really isn't much involved, simply a stop at the chocolate outlet and the Fondue Dinner, which is of course the best part. It is a lovely view from the mountain top, seeing Lake Zurich and the Alps, and having fellowship with others on the tour. The guide was super friendly.

    Even though it rained, the tour was wonderful. Our guide was great and provided historical and interesting bits about Zurich and Switzerland. The cheese fondue was yummy though most of the guests liked the non-alcoholic variety better, the salad was spectacular, and appetizers really good. And yes, now you get tap water with your meal, as well as a glass of wine.

    The tour was great and the fondue even better! I would definitely do this again!

    This tour experience was absolutely incredible. Our guide was highly engaged and helpful while bringing us all around Zurich. The tour begins with a van tour of Zurich and a picturesque stop to view the Alps over Lake Zurich. After that it is off to the Lindt chocolate factory outlet store. Chocolate sampling is a bit of a loose term as you only get 1 truffle and then are expected to buy additional Lindt chocolate. Not necessarily a bad thing, just be prepared to spend some extra money. After that we went up to the restaurant in a little cable car and the views were outstanding. Once at the top we walked through the woods and were met with mugs of delicious and hot mulled wine and appetizers as we admired the view. The sun was setting and you can see all of Zurich, the river and even the Alps. I could recommend this tour on those views alone. eventually we went into the restaurant for a 3 course meal and it was delicious. We had salad, cheese fondue and chocolate cake. The food was amazing and I would definitely like to return to this restaurant some day. It is important to note that only the salad, fondue and cake inside the restaurant are included in your tour price. If you want anything else including water you must pay for it out of pocket. After dinner concluded, our guide took us back to the bus terminal while still providing insight about Zurich. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Swiss fondue and breathtaking views.

    I had such an amazing experience. We had this tour with my boyfriend for our anniversary and it was the best choice!! ! Such a nice place, cozy, staff hyper friendly, they even explained us how to eat the fondue :) Lot of food! Go hungry!!! Amazing views from the Felsenneg Car. I just loved the tour, the cheese, the restaurant, the view, and Zurich!! Would highly recommend to everyone wanting to do something special.

    Great dinner overlooking Zurich. On a clear evening you can see the Alps in the distance. Great start with a visit to the Lindt Chocolate Outlet Store.

    Best tour in Zurich. The fondue was likely the best I have ever had.
