Know More about this tour

Head to Zurich's Sihlquai Bus Terminal in the afternoon, hop aboard your minibus and — with engaging commentary from your informative guide — head out along the Sihl River to begin your tour.

Travel past rows of attractive linden trees and catch glimpses of Bahnhofstrasse — one of the world’s priciest retail streets and the center of Zurich’s business and finance industries. If you happen to be here between late November and early January, marvel at the shimmering festive lights adorning the area.

Continue south along Lake Zurich to the small town of Kilchberg, home of the Lindt Chocolate Factory outlet. Step inside and take a moment to inhale the delectable scent. Work your way through row after row of brightly colored wrapping and don’t forget to buy some souvenir chocolate for family and friends back home.

Hop back aboard your minibus and travel onward for the 10-minute journey to Adliswil, then take the cable car 2,630 feet (800 meters) up to Felsenegg — a popular viewpoint located in the Albis mountain chain. From here, enjoy a short trek through the forest to a restaurant overlooking Lake Zurich.

From the comfort of the restaurant’s welcoming terrace, sip on a warming glass of glühwein (spicy mulled wine) in winter or a crisp glass of white wine in summer. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and soak up sweeping views of Zurich and the lakeshore — the twinkling city lights in the valley below during the winter months are matched only by the glorious sunset and lake views in summer. Head inside the cozy, rustic restaurant, traditionally furnished with mountain decor and begin your meal with an appetizing salad.

With your appetite piqued, feast on an incredible, all-you-can-eat Swiss cheese fondue — a highlight of your day. Every so often, stir the cheese in a zigzag fashion and dip bread into the garlic-seasoned cheese. Allow the thin layer of cheese at the bottom of the pot to turn into a brown crust — considered a Swiss delicacy — and share pieces of it with your group.

Top off your meal with homemade chocolate cake then, with your hunger satisfied, hop back aboard your minibus for the drive back to Zurich.

  • 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.

  • Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and since this was a small group, the guide tailored the trip to the guests. It includes a quick trip to the Lindt outlet where our guide showed us how to tell which chocolates were made locally and purchases could be made.

    The dinner is at Felsenegg which is the same hilltop restaurant you visit on the Zurich City Highlight tour. A heavy mist had settled in at the hilltop making the evening seem a little magical. The appetizers and mulled wine outside started the meal. Then inside sitting family-style, our tour guide showed us how to enjoy a fondue dinner making sure not to lose our bread in the cheese. No one had to do dishes!

  • This was a good tour, but the fondue was only average for the cost. The tour guide was excellent and the gondolla ride was great..

  • great food and great views!!!

  • Overall, not that great :(
    Our guide was nice and very informative but the cable car ride was short. And the dinner was salad, bread/cheese and chocolate cake NOT worth the price!
    Drinks (water) cost an additional $55, I would not recommend this tour.
