After first doing a city tour of Zurich we follow Lake Zurich to Rapperswil, the city of roses. We visit the picturesque Old Town and its medieval castle; you will also have some time at leisure here. Then after crossing the Ricken Pass with its panoramic views of the Alps we reach the lovely Toggenberg region whose pretty hill and valley scenery is perfect chocolate box material!

In Vaduz, the capital of the tiny Principality of Liechtenstein you will have more time at leisure. A visit to the Post Office is recommended; the famous stamps from this tiny state are coveted worldwide by philatelists and amateur stamp lovers alike. And finally we arrive at Maienfeld, the setting for the Heidi stories. In the summer months you visit Heidi's village. A pleasant short walk leads to a collection of typical mountain houses, a village shop, and of course lots of little goats. Entry into the authentic Heidi House is optional. In wintertime, you'll visit the quaint Swiss village of Werdenberg instead.

A beautiful trip back to Zurich along the banks of Lake Walen, guarded over majestically by the Churfirsten mountain range brings to a close this most nostalgic of Swiss tours.

We booked this for the scenic ride and also for the opportunity to tick Liechenstein off our bucket list. It was well organised and the bus was clean. The guides were informative. Of course, you need to pick a season where the weather will be agreeable :)

For a short time in Zurich this tour is a good way to spend the day viewing beautiful scenery, reliving the Heidi story and visiting another country, Lichtenstein. Walter, our tour guide, was entertaining and did a good job!

My wife and I enjoyed the entire trip. Scenic, comfortable ride in a first class tour bus. Our guide was most professional. The driver was excellent. Convenient starting place. We saw the Zurich highlights, the beautiful Swiss countryside, the unique Lichtenstein country and Hiediland all at a comfortable pace. Well worth the price.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Rapperswill and Vaduz and Heidiland. Rapperswill was a true gem with its beautiful old town area, gorgeous rose gardens and beautiful lake area. We continued onward to Vaduz and enjoyed our visit to the small principality of Lichtenstein!! Heidiland was an interesting but not the highlight of our day.

The tour guide was excellent and having lived in Detroit when young spoke excellent English. He was knowledgeable and precise. A nice day.

This is a definite must if you are traveling to Zurich. It was so relaxing to watch the Switzerland countryside pass by as we headed toward Liechtenstein. It was so peaceful and serene in this small country, I will definitely travel back one day. Our tour guide, Walter, was so full of history and knowledge and was one of the funniest men I have ever met in my life. It was definitely worth doing!!!!!

A fabulous day. You get to do so much more when you are with a group. Our guide and driver were top of the class. Switzerland is so beautiful that you dare not fall asleep on the bus as there is always something more to see. Our guide Walter was engaging throughout and his vast experience and love of his job shone through. We had exactly enough time everywhere and it all went so smooth. Well done to those who put the itinerary together.

Great way to see Lichtenstein. One hour there is enough. Never heard of Heidi before the trip but the views and tranquility of the area was also worth a short trip. Enjoyed the excellent commentary from Barbara especially the city tour information and interesting facts about the chocolate produced in Switzerland.

We kept reading that Heidiland was cheesy. We don’t know if it was the tour or because we came on the first weekend it was open but we were all over Switzerland for 11 days and we loved it! Just so beautiful and serene. Do you need to the Heidi house-no nothing you haven't seen before but the atmosphere was a perfect way to start our trip. Our tour guide was amazing!!!

Truly enjoyable tour with lots of swiss landscape and rural Switzerland. I knew nearly nothing about Liechtenstein and it has changed completely in a few hours. Our guide Peter enriched the whole journey with interesting information, some of it could only be known by locals but not found in books. Very authentic! He was very professional and caring, organized, had great jokes and has a very nice personality overall. The very best guide!

We really enjoyed our trip to Heidiland and Liechtenstein. The area is beautiful to see and we had ample time to walk around at Heidiland and see everything. The guide was good about taking a Group photo. Liechtenstein was interesting but remember to bring your passport!

We opted for this tour to avoid figuring out what to do on a Sunday in Zurich when most places are not open. It was a great option. The tour begins with a driving tour of the city. There's a stop at a castle, a break for lunch and then on to Liechtenstein. The breaks (except for lunch) can be a little rushed but were overall sufficient. Our guide was excellent. She told stories and provided background and was great to listen to as we drove along. She also provided enough information so that we knew what to expect next. The area at Heidiland is beautiful, even if you aren't interested in the Heidi story. Price of the tour is very reasonable, especially considering the prices of anything in Zurich. Bus was well air conditioned and comfortable and tour left on time and arrived back on time. Definitely recommend this tour.

Trip was interesting, beautiful and informative. Tour guide knew her stuff and driver did well driving in a snow storm.

The country view was magnificient once we were out of town. Liechtenstein is not much to see but to be in one of the smallest country in the world is an honour. Heidiland was beautiful and the scenary has to be seen to be appreiated.

This was a wonderful trip. We did a mini-city tour in the morning -- we didn't get off the bus and I wouldn't really count it as a city tour if you want to really get to know Zurich. But it was an interesting ride to see a few things before heading to the area outside the city. Our first stop was in a cute little town with amazing cheese pie. From there we went to Lichtenstein which was really just a stop to buy souvenirs. Then we headed to Heidland which was the most beautiful ride I have ever taken. Every minute you are seeing adorable houses and majestic mountains. Even if you have no interest or recollection of the Heidi books (like my husband and me) this is still an amazing stop as far as the scenery is concerned. It was a wonderful day with an awesome guide (Barbara) whose English was fantastic.
