Way too high price, it's very easy they can reduce the tour prices, for this amount I feel not worth. Nothing much to see. Not enough to given to spend in respective locations to get pictures, lot of time wasted in chocolate outlet. Tour heading with Lindt chocolate factory visit, but reality they visited a small outlet with chocolate displayed

The information given was just right not to much and the tour was kept moving at a good steady pace. To bus trip was good then onto the walking tour of old Zurich. Then we loaded the boat had a nice ride around the lake to depart at the chocolate shop. Prices were great

Had a wonderful time on the Zurich tour. It was a beautiful day and really enjoyed the lake cruise.there was a .lot more walking then I expected and was not told there would be. But other than thatthe guide was great.

This tour was excellent when we took it in 2017. We had a great guide and a small group that continued on the cruise and to the chocolate factory. I'm not sure why Viator and the tour company had us on the list for the same day a year later. The tour company called to see why we were not at the meeting point. Can you make sure there is no cost implications to this mix up?We visited in September 2017 but that is not one of the choices below.

Beautiful tour on my first day in Switzerland. It was in the afternoon after my flight got in, so more than enough time to settle in before getting out and about. The boat tour on Lake Zurich was so relaxing with lovely scenery. And the Lindt Chocolate Store was a big kid's dream! The chocolate is oh so delicious! I highly recommend this tour for those wanting to get around Zurich for a little sight seeing, either on foot, bus and/or boat.

Our guide, Urs, was very informative and gave us an added stop at the lake because had time and pointed out several cool facts about Zurich. The bus was really nice and comfortable. This is a great tour if your looking for a combination of walking and riding on the bus and boat.

The tour starts with the west side of Zurich which is the industrial side of Zurich and its not that great but the visit to the Lindt chocolate factory outlet and the Zurich lake cruise was just out of this world! The Lindt outlet was like stepping in to a dream world of chocolates wrapped in beautiful wrappings. There are discounted items as well which are of slight manufacturing errors but are of very good taste. There is sort of a photobooth where people can take pictures in a set background and get it emailed, which was fun. The 1 hour Zurich lake cruise was so so beautiful with the view of Alps in a distance. Our tour guide was Annete and she spoke good English and was very kind and helpful.

we had fun with the walking tour and the boat tour. We were then let off at the outlet and had to wait a very long time to get our ride back to town. it was a wonderful day other than that.
• Submitted 02 Aug 2019
This tour was pretty cool, and kind of relaxing being on the waters in Switzerland. There are not many vegetarian options, if you're hungry on the boat, which was disappointing. However, being able to visit the Sprungli Lindt Chocolate Factory was amazing, chocolate galore.
• Submitted 25 Mar 2018
The lake tour was fabulous with a knowledgeable guide. I was expecting to see live chocolate making but had to be satisfied with the outlet.not a disappointment though with various varieties of lindt chocolates
