The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Kerrin, was personable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. What more could you ask for? A delightful way to learn about chocolate and see the old town. Highly recommended!

great whistle stop tour seeing parts of the old town before a short motorway drive to a beautiful town by the lake where you can stop for lunch, ice cream or a coffee. we took the boat back to zurich rather than going on to heidiland. a lovely boat ride back taking in the beautiful views.

This was an excellent way to see Zurich,and the Guide was very knowledgable.
We went on the afternoon trip,but with hindsight as it stops at the old quarter,the morning would be best so you can walk around the old town better.They do take you back to the starting point if you want.Very good value for money.

It was a great tour to see the highlight of Zurich when we had very limited time. The sightseeing tour includes almost all parts of Zurich, the old town and the modern part. The first stop at the lakeshore of lake Zurich was great for us to take some beautiful pictures of the fountain and boats on the lake. We also enjoyed the time to go up the hill by tram to see the famous luxury hotel above the hill and the city view from above. The rooms for improvement are 1) the English accent of the tour guide which is not easy to be listened and 2) no restroom available when we stopped at the old town. Overall, the tour is great and recommended for those visited Zurich for the first time.

This tour was nice. The tour guide seemed a bit rushed. Our tour was done in German and English and she seemed to struggle a bit. The sights were great and the guide provided good information about the Old Town.

The tour covered sights which for the most part could easily be seen on foot. The time needed for the tour seemed to be so the bus could negotiate the numerous building works which also obscurred many of the sights - those that were not obscurred already by air conditioner motors. We were told in the onboard commentary, on a number of occasions - 'this was where the old town wall and fortifications were, until they were pulled down and the stones used for buildings'??? We felt this tour was a waste of money.
