Know More about this tour

This tour shows you the most interesting sights of Zurich and its surroundings! Start with a guided city tour of Zurich which shows you the commercial center, a section of the Old Town, Fraumuenster Church from the outside, historical Limmatquai and the university district. Drive along the Hoehenstrasse which offers spectacular views into the Alps, we then drive to Rapperswil which is named the 'City of Roses'. The charming little town of Rapperswil offers unique attractions for visitors - the Rose Gardens, the Castle, the deer park on the Lindenhof and the picturesque Old Town.

After a guided orientation tour and some time at leisure in Rapperswil, enjoy a 2-hour cruise on the Lake of Zurich (unescorted). There is a restaurant on board for your convenience. First possible boat back is scheduled to arrive at 3:25pm at Zurich Buerkliplatz Pier.

Between November and March there are no boats operating, so you return to Zurich by modern train 'Gold Coast Express' along the romantic road that follows the lake-shore.

  • We decided once on the tour to upgrade to Heidiland tour. We found we would be 6 1/2 hours and dropped off at an entire location on the great tour. The brochure said it was a four hour tour. The Heideland tour was 1/2 hour longer and dropped us off about where we started.
    The tour was very good just we were on a time frame that got messed up because the information was not correct.

  • great tour/bus driver.

  • Pretty poor to be honest, very short drive around Zurich, visit to a Lindt factory and then a restaurant. Not sure anything a taxi driver could not have done.

  • Not much of a tour. Drove around Zurich then drove out to some small town and had to wait for train to get back to Zurich. Not worth the money.

  • Nice bus ride through Zurich seeing the highlights of the city. Really enjoyed the return boat ride on the lake.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Unfortunately the day of our tour was misty with little visibility. We were unable to really view Lake Zurich and the Cable Ride was fun and the top of the mountain was beautiful with a wonderful little restaurant. The views would have been spectacular on a clear day. Our tour guide was knowledgeable but seemed too much emphasis on shopping, insurance and banking. Would have liked more history. The weather is completely out of your control, however someone suggested and I agreed, that on a day like that, the guide should have photos, postcard or some visual one could take with them of what we would have seen. I have no idea what it would be like on a clear day. With that little take away I would have rated this at least another star. On a clear day I'm sure it would have been a 5 star.

  • No, this tour was NOT amazing!!! The tour guide was in a constant hurry to drop us off and end the tour. He would not go over one minute of the alloted time scheduled for the tour. I had to take my mother to the bathroom and we were left behind because "Walter" could not wait fo us.

  • Tour was very forgettable. Tour quide was not very very entertaining. Did not keep my interest. Also walked very fast and did not look back as we had to climb 100 steps! River cruise on Zurick lake was not narrated. Tour guide was not with us. Would not recommend this tour

  • Mediocre.

    The bus was clean and we did see the countryside and lake however...

    I have been on good tours to help me learn about a city after I've explored a bit myself but this one was slow considering how expensive it was. The tour guide seemed quite bored with his job. If I could do it over I would skip this one.
