Well worth it. The guide was pleasant and it is clear that she enjoys her work. She is.knowledgeable about the history of Zurick and Switzerland, and made it interesting.
The guide had to speak in three different languages and sometimes they ran together in order to cover all the sights in a small area. The cable car was good with wonderful food at the top.

tour guide was very knowledgeable
Our guide Daniel was great. He made the tour interesting and was very helpful with all information.
However, I found the stops at the lake, but specially at the old town, very short. I don't know if there could be a little bit more sighseeing time at old town.
A lengthy tour but well worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable about Switzerland and I learned so much. I love how the Swiss government works, by the people and for the people, and how they taken care of their city. I especially loved the tram that took us to an overlook for a great view and the little chalet at the top. I would r commend this tour..
Short version: The guide made derogatory comments about Jewish people, and the boat tour is a ferry ride with no commentary. Save your money and do not book this tour!
Longer version: The city tour is only one stop, at the very beautiful Fraumunster. While we were there, the guide said that we are rich because the Jews taught us how to use money. I was disgusted, but he seemed to think that it was an entirely appropriate comment. Certainly, the Chagall windows are beautiful, but I was expecting a tour of multiple sites and some background information about the city. On the bus ride to Rapperswil, the guide pointed out a boat one of many at the dock and told me that I had to catch it. He then told me that I could join the other tour, if I paid immediately. I didn't like the hard sell, and said no. We then drove down some winding streets away from it, and walked up to a church, where no information was given. Then the guide left without another word, and I was left alone to find the boat. Luckily I did get to it in time, only to learn that it was the local ferry, and it would take 2 hours with no commentary or guided portion. The tour guide had also failed to tell me where the boat would dock in Zurich. As I was travelling alone, I spent the next two hours wondering anxiously where I was going and what would happen when the boat docked.
The price for this tour is outrageous for the quality of the product. Save your money and buy a guidebook!
Doing what: The Great Tour of Zurich
This was an amazing tour. We got to see so much of the city. I would highly recommend this tour.
Not enough historic or context information. The ferry ride was deceiving - sitting in a bus while it was loaded and transported across the lake was hugely disappointing and not as advertised. The time allocated at the top of the mountain was inadequate and rushed.
View was beautiful, but the guide wasn't great and it was extremely rushed throughout the activities
tour was great
This tour is in 3 languages. The tour guide did the best she could, but it is impossible to explain anything about a building we are passing in 3 languages and have all passengers be able to understand what you are referencing. We therefore got very little detail about anything because she didn't have time to explain the monument/attraction in 3 languages. It is convenient to go by bus but I would not call this a tour.
Great quick half day tour of the city highlights!
Great tour! Our guide was awesome! Very funny, smart, and accommodating. I would recommend this tour to everyone
Please we would suggest to send atleast One hour SMS message as on the go it becomes difficult to remember all the tours.
Tour is otherwise excellent...
Very good tour. We especially enjoyed the boat ride and the cable car ride. We thought our guide could have been a little more engaging and informative, but overall we would highly recommend this tour.
It was a good tour and the guide was knowledgeable but I wish there were more stops and less driving time.
The guide was very knowledgeable, city tour was fun and with lots of info and history learned. Wish we had more time to explore the city but Felsenegg area was awesome.
Saw most of the commercial area of Banhofstraus before the tour so that part wasn't especially interesting. Liked seeing the Lady's Church and was impressed by the excavation going on behind. The trip down the coast of the lake and ferry across was enjoyable seeing the villages. The cable car up to Felsenegg was nice but the car was crowded. Not much time up there to explore far but the view is pretty especially toward dusk. This is the same hilltop you will visit again for a meal on the Traditional Cheese Fondue Dinner tour.
Absolutely just enough! Would have liked more time at the end to eat though.
Very enjoyable. Well worth the money.
Really enjoyed day
Excellent tour of the surrounding neighborhoods of Zurich, as well as information about old town. Friendly, courteous and helpful guides. Enjoyed the ferry ride across Lake Zurich and cable car to Felsenegg.
This was a wonderful tour. It was the amount of time to get to see Zurich. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.
