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.

  • 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.

  • The coach trip through Zurich and towards Rappersville is OK and reasonably informative. Rappersville was a nice enough town but nothing too special and I thought that I have seen bigger and prettier rose garden's in public places that dont get too much mention. We took the 2 hour boat trip back which is not a guided boat trip but simply a public boat trip on lake Zurich. If you want to take a boat trip on lake Zurich, just board one of the public transport boats which goes up and down the whole day and pay when you board the boat. Much much cheaper. I did 5 trips that I booked through 2 in Munich, 1 in Zurich and 2 in Prague and thought this was the only one that did not provide good value for money.

  • Very good experience.

  • At the meeting point it was confusing what bus to take. It was not made clear that two tours are combined on the bus for the drive through Zurich. After boarding the bus the two tours make the Zurich stop together and then when you get to the castle the two groups split, one does the boat tour and the other continues on the bus. The guide did not speak very good English and was hard to understand at times.

  • This was too much of a rush and unplanned trip. Please factor in tourist comfort and expectation to make the experience entertaining and not mundane.

  • The great tour of Zurich is very comprehensive tour, I have been to major part of the city and had 2 hours cruise on the lake Zurich, it is Si beautiful and by the end of the trip, I also had a bit time to walk to train station through the centre of the Zurich, and discovered a bit more of it.
