  • A wonderful and relaxing way to see Zurich and surrounds. Only down side was the Felsenegg Cable car as some cars were overloaded while others has very few people in them. The view at the top was great though. Enjoyed every other minute.

  • Great tour and guide. Fabulous way to see the city, cross the lake, scale the mountain all while relaxing on the bus while someone else took care of the driving and parking.

  • Average at best. Ferry ride was actually just a way to get bus to other side of lake no bridges. No commentary on ride and no functioning bathroom. OK but not spectacular way to get an overview of Zurich.

  • A little mixup at our pickup point, but the company handled it well. Was a really good tour with the exception of the temperature on the bus, a warm day with an under-air-conditioned bus. The guide was excellent easily and fluently slipping back and forth through English, German and Spanish. Overall an enjoyable and informative afternoon.

  • Zurich was the first place we flew into after leaving Australia. We booked this tour so we could see as much as possible during our one day there. The tour included coach, ferry and cable car. We got to see and experience do much on this tour.....highly recommend. Zurich is a beautiful place.....especially the old town.

  • Tour leaves from central bus station and is well organised. Typical coach tour with commentary along the way and stops to see various sites. We actually went on a modern barge to cross the lake which was good fun and something different which was great. The Cable car was good and the view at the top was worth the trip. Good orientation tour of the city. Worth the money.

  • This was a great way to see the highlights of Zurich in a short time. The only downside was it was hard to see some of the sights from the bus, and depending on what side you were seated on, I felt like I missed some things. It would have been great in an open-top type bus.
    The ferry ride across the lake and seeing the Gold Coast area was beautiful, as well as the Felsenegg Cable car ride which provided awesome views.

  • Everything you should see and hear about Zurich.

  • Good tour for seeing the highlight in Zurich city in relax way to gain some ideas which area should be visited.

  • This was a terrific introduction to Zurich! We scheduled it on our first day and it really helped us organize the rest of our time in Zurich.
