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 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.

    Great tour. Guide has a wealth of knowledge and was interested with his job.

    The half day tour of Zurich and boat cruise was just okay. The city tour itself was very short, I was expecting to see more sites of the city instead we zigzagged back and forth across the 2 banks then headed out to Rapperswil for the cruise. The lake cruise was enjoyable but the tour was for 2nd class which was very full and not terribly comfortable. Next time I would pay the upcharge on the boat to sit upstairs in first class.

    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.

    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.

    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.
