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!

AMAZING tour : Read about it in my blog to learn more about this tour, Zurich, and other cities in Europe
My favorite part of this tour was the river cruise.
terrible, waist of time and money.. ...
Very good tour. The driver/ guide Richard was excellent. He made the tour.
If you want to experience the true beauty of Switzerland then this is a must do tour! We really enjoyed the smaller group experience and highly recommend this tour.
Great tour - never enough time and you see so much. Bus was comfortable and guide was very knowledgable. A good mix of free time and time actually touring.
This is the perfect way to see Zurich. It also includes a boat ride on lake Zurich. The bus was comfortable and the guide was very informative and friendly. Highly recommended
If you want to witness all the highlights and history of Zurich getting a flavour of the city as well as the essence of its culture than this tour suits the requirement best.This tour is ideal for a family especially kids as the look of the trolley and its interiors makes you fall in love with the whole experience of taking a ride in it and it feels as you have gone back in the 60s.Both me and my wife wanted to explore Zurich city but were tired of the same coach or walking style tours,so we went for this unique adventure and thoroughly enjoyed it.It has a multilingual commentary on board,it covers all the major highlights of the city,gives you photo opportunities with some stops on the way and free time at each stop.I definitely recommend this tour.
Doing what: The Zurich Trolley Experience
It was a whole day tour that we took. Our driver guide, took us through the drive to the Appenzall mountains. It was pretty. I've never had a driver guide before so it was a new experience. Though, I would appreciate more if the guide had more eye contact with us, when she's explaining about the surroundings throughout the journey. I suppose that was not possible too as she had to drive and talk at the same time.
But all in all, it was a beautiful drive up the mountains and it was a pretty little town she took us to.
The cheese and choc tour was fulfilled.
Excellent trip, knowledgeable, friendly guide. Great way to explore the Appenzelle flavor and ambience.
Great! Too bad the chocolate part is just going to shop to the outlet....
