Overview

See all the main sights of Switzerland's cultural capital as your motor coach takes you for a drive around Zurich. Enjoy spectacular views of the Alps on your way to visit the rose gardens, deer park and castle in the village of Rapperswil, before enjoying a boat cruise on Lake Zurich.

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.

    Nice trip, cleaver guide, everything worked perfectly. Short but beautiful trip, by bus and boat. The weather was amazing..

    Please be warned when booking with Viator, they mislead customers. Booked a trip to lucerne with a visit to engelberg, they typed in very small print that the trip is lucerne only whilst keeping the visit to engelberg in the title to attract customers. Change the trip name fully to lucerne only. I am currently very disappointed and following a complaint procedure with Viator. Follow through with your proceedings if misled. I am expecting a reasonable refund.

    tour didn't follow what described on line. we were expecting to go on cable car at Fassenegg that didnt occur. instead we were brought to Raperswill where we got a tour of a castle. that was good but took so long that we had no time to wander the town before we had to get the boat back. had to grab a bite at McDonald's instead of a nice lunch to get to the boat. the boat ride was very nice.

    Great tour through the most important places of Zürich city by touringcar with airco and ship on the lake. The bus driver (mr Heiblom?) is very friendy, a good driver in the narrow streets and a gentlemen for the other traffic. We felt very safe and comfortable.

    We didnt have much time in Zurich, so doing the 4 1/2 hr. tour was the perfect way to see a lot of different sites. It started driving around the city with our guide pointing out points of interest. then the bus took us to a very quaint town. walked the grounds of the castle with the deer park. the remainder of the guests choose to go on to the entire day tour and we opted to take the boat back into town. it was a beautiful ride on zurich lake with a few stops along the way. dropped us off near Bahnhofstrasse, which is one of the most expensive streets in the world. wear good walking shoes and take lots of $$ as zurich is not inexpensive.

    The tour started on a low note when the tour operator lied to us and dismissed our request for special seating due to motion sickness. But, the bus tour through Zurich, followed by the boat ride back was beautiful and relaxing. It’s a very nice way of seeing Zurich and the surrounding areas.

    This started out quite informative, we exited the bus and just stood there listening when we could have walked across the water and see the church etc... we boarded the bus and drove to the rose garden area and we walked in the square and were brought to a restaurant to eat (our expense) I had a salad and the manager said I had to leave because they needed the table for another reservation. A $50.00 lunch and I was practically thrown out. I chose to return to Zurich by boat but the tour guide whom left several people behind failed to tell us we had to wait there 3 hours for the boat. So we were stranded. Not worth the money under these circumstances.
