We highly recommend this trip. The tour guide (I think her name was Lisa, she said she was from Costa Rica) was very organized and prompt. They tried to be flexible especially when there was a 10 minute delay. She was very informative and approachable. We could ask any question and she was knowledgeable about it. Their selection of destinations was worth experiencing. We got to see the vast beauty of Lake Zurich and the Swiss Alps. The landscape was stunning. and they recommended great places to eat. We spent enough time in each stop. Definitely a MUST SEE!
We were able to experience a lot of Switzerland's beauty in this one day tour.
Absolutely loved this tour, despite Liechtenstein being basically just a toilet break (we got half an hour time there). The sceneries were mesmerizing, and Heidi's house was fantastic. The guide (forgot his name unfortunately, an older gentleman) was really great too. It's a tour I would take again.
Nice tour for the money. Excellent overview of Switzerland in a short time. Guide very knowledgable. Should warn participants of amount of walking.
It was an excellent trip to Leichtenstein and Heideland and I enjoyed the narration by the tour guide.
Had one of the best liveliest combo of lovely Erna as our guide and Hernandez as our driver made this trip on a rather gloomy wet and cold summer day a terrific excursion. Loved the lively commentary from Erna who was a gem as a guide; she definitely gave more than was required as a guide. Well-organised, pleasant, relaxing and comfy all the way. Enjoyed the climb up/down Heidiland even though it was cold and wet. Many thanks Erna and Hernandez for personalising our trip!
What a great tour! It was a long day, but we enjoyed everything. Our tour guide was very, very informative. The tour starts in the city of Zurich and then you proceed out to the country. The Swiss countryside is so beautiful, one of the highlights of our trip. Stopped in a beautiful town for lunch and enjoyed homemade chocolates during the bus ride! Brief shopping in Leichtenstein for some souvenirs. Heidiland was great too. It was a drizzly day weather wise, but it was so peaceful and beautiful in Heidiland. Hearing the sounds of cow bells ringing while the cows were grazing in the fields was something I thought only happened in old movies. It makes you sit back and reflect on the beauty that is around you. Some walking at that point, so if you have issues walking this maybe a problem. Rocky and hilly at some points. Wear the right shoes and you will be fine. If you are short on time during your trip, this is a good tour which encompasses both city and countryside of Switzerland. We are glad we did this tour.
The tour was excellent, our guide Marcello was a perfect host, he made the ride very pleasant and funny. In this tour, you can get awesome pictures of the beautiful landscapes. Heidiland was charming. The bus was very comfortable. I would recommend this tour for families and people looking for a relaxing ride.
A great day with all that we expected and more in this tour. Great tour guide.
This is a great tour! Our tour guide Walter was fantastic, giving us lots of information in a humorous manner. We started off with a tour of Zurich city, so do this tour early on in your stay. We then to Rapperswil where we made a brief stop at the castle then the rose gardens before being given a half hour for lunch. After this, we went to Maienfeld, driving past stunning scenery. The walk from the parking lot to Heidi's House took about ten minutes, so if you have trouble walking, this tour may not be for you. Maienfeld was highly enjoyable, you can visit Heidi's House for a fee, or you can walk around the area, feed the goats, etc. Lastly, we stopped at Vaduz, capital of Liechtenstein. Not a very exciting place, but nice to be able to say you've visited a new country :) You can get your passport stamped with a Liechtenstein stamp for CHF 2.50, you can buy stamps from Liechtenstein, buy souvenirs, or visit the museums. Finally, the drive back again was lovely. Overall, a very enjoyable trip.
If you are in Zurich and want to add Liechtenstein to your list of countries, than this is the trip! Getting out into the countryside to drive through the scenic Swiss Alps was great! Rapperswil was beautiful, and I loved visiting Heidiland (I have not even read Heidi, but I loved the scenic views and playing with the goats). Liechtenstein is a small city with not much to do there besides get your passport stamped. However, it is beautifully located in the Rhine Valley amongst the Alps. Definitely a worthwhile trip!
I loved this excursion so much that I did it two days in a row! My daughters joined me in Zurich and they had only one day in Switzerland so I decided that we should do the Heidiland tour for their one day. This tour covers a lot of ground for one day! Zurich is nice but the countryside is a must!
What a fantastic tour!!Our tour guide,Marcello, was informative and entertaining. The trip is a must do!!!The scenery in the Swiss Alps is just magnificient!!! The whole day was just wonderful,a trip to Switzerland would not be complete without it.
This is an excellent tour if you've only got limited time and you want to see the alpine lowlands, foothills and mountain scenery (in the distance). Very relaxed pace and with great stops to eat, stretch your legs and toilet breaks. I did this in middle of May and was fortunate to have caiught nice sunny weather. Our guide was very good, plying us with just the right combination of jokes and factual information.
