Got a good glimpse of the city of Zurich in a short time. It helped us to get a feel of the city and explore further on our own

Great way to see Zurich and learn the history! Beautiful sights. Not big on tours. Definitely worth it. Although some other people on tour made it difficult for us to stay on time.

The tour ia a good opportunity to kinow the higjlights of Zurich, with ferry and cable car ride experience, during a short stay in Zurich. The tour guide is very good. It is a good thing that we did our own tour of the Old Town the day before since the time allotted for the Old Town in the tour is very limited.. We enjoyed the tour and worth the price we paid.

This tour was a perfect way to spend an afternoon experiencing Zurich and its surroundings. Granted our tour was adjusted due to the Spring Festival's closure of streets in the Old Town, but in 4 1/2 hours, we were in the coach, a cograil train to an overlook, a ferry across to a cablecar that took us to Felsenegg's overlook and a charming restaurant for hot chocolate and apple strudel. The unexpected views of the countryside were green and peaceful with roaming cows and goats...just like the picture postcards.

Really great tour when staying a few days in Zurich. We were there for only 2.5 days and were able to see most of the city in a comfortable bus considering it was cold outside, in half a day!
• Submitted 05 Feb 2018
The guide was very knowledgeable. The tour covered a lot of ground in a short space of time which is what we were after. The scenery along the lake and up high was beautiful.

This was one of the best tours we have ever experienced! When the tour bus was unable to pick us at the airport because of traffic, the manager of the local touring office sent and paid for a taxi to bring us to another meeting point for the bus. She called us several times to make sure we had reached the destination. The tour guide was amazing and we felt like we had really seen the highlights of Zurich. When the tour was complete, the guide gave us wonderful directions to the train station to get us back to our hotel. When I emailed the office manager thanking her for taking such good care of us, she emailed back within 15 minutes along with her CEO and the tour guide. This tour and group of people are amazing!

I like this city tour so much! Out guide is super knowledgeable about this city and full of humor! This tour contains an inclusive explanation of the history in Zurich, a cogwheel train trip, a cable car trip, a ferry trip and charming scenery from a mountain nearby. Strongly recommend to the people who do not know what to do in Zurich yet!

A good on the go tour. Guide was very knowledgeable of zurich and we even got to see the gates to tina turners lakeside home. The cable car up to the top of felsenegg was a bit cramed as they pile in thirty people at a time, but its only a six minuite ride. The walk to the resturant only 5 mins from cable car. The views were magnificent and you will take lots of pictures. Beware of the prices in the resturant. We two hot chocs and two warm apfel struddles which was 39swiss francs. Thats 30 or 57 australian. Otherwise a lovely near 5 hours of sightseeing.
