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!
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.
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!
This was a super fantastic tour. I have always wanted to see the Swiss Alps. The scenery was awesome. It really makes one realize how majestic our God is to have made all of this and just how small the human is within our universe. I would rate this with a five plus rating. The guide was very informative and the bus driver was very safety minded. If I ever return to Zurich, I will make your company and tours the top of my agenda.
We just came back from our recent tour in Zurich..all I can say is "Fantastic" experience! The tour guide (Walter) is so.kimd and the bus driver.is cool.as.well. I can recommend this tour package!:)
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.
Great tour to the beautiful Swiss Alps. Our tour guide was very funny, entertaining us all.
I had a great time on this tour, after a brief tour of Zurich itself we drove through some wonderful swiss scenery including a stopover in a town famous for it's rose gardens. We then spent a short while in Heidiland and then on to Liechtenstein we had wonderful weather and all in all I would say this tour gives you a great taste of Switzerland. Both our tour guide and driver were excellent, it was just a shame there were not more people on board to enjoy it.
Fun, relaxing trip with wonderful scenery and several stops for photos. Great guide.
Had a fantastic trip, we were so lucky to have only 7 on the City tour and just 5 going on to Heidiland/Liechtenstein we were able to stop more for photos and the weather although a little chilly was glorious. I would definitely recommend this trip, the rep was funny and kept us all laughing
Although this tour is called Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour, we stopped at many different places and small towns for breaks and photo opportunities that made this tour very worth while. Vaduz (Liechtenstein) isn't that spectacular but I thoroughly enjoyed the drive to and from Vaduz. Heidiland was nice, but we weren't able to visit some parts as it was closed for the winter. There is also a great short city tour at the beginning of the tour.
I spent a few days in Zurich in October 2013. I took two Viator tours - this one and Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe. I found this tour by far the most enjoyable.
This tour gave you a short tour of Zurich. I must say that Zurich is a fairly sterile city compared to some others in Europe and the endless banks were not terribly interesting to look at. We stopped at the Lindt chocolate shop. Afterwards we travelled to Mainfeld for a stop for lunch. Mainfeld is lovely. The afternoon was spent driving through unforgettable alpine scenery to Heidiland. The Heidihouse was nothing special but the setting was well worth seeing. To finish off we went to Liechtenstein for an hour's stop, which was interesting.
In contrast to the top of Europe tour which was rushed and exhausting (though not unworthwhile) I found this tour to be relaxing and lovely in every way. The scenery was beautiful and I came back all smiley having had a great day.
One minor quibble - I would have preferred more time at Mainfeld, by the time I had had lunch it was time to leave. This tour doesn't start until 11am. If it started at 10am then you'd have more time at some of the locations.
I get the impression that this tour is not very popular. Some reviewers have mentioned cancelled tours and my tour was on a nearly empty bus. I really enjoyed this tour, more people should go on it if they can. It's a great way to see some of the chocolate box villages, log cabins and alpine views that Switzerland is famous for. More than half the price of the Top of Europe tour as well.
Loved this tour. It was fantastic. Showed a bit of zurich. we had extra time so they took us to the chocolate factory to buy some cheap chocolates.
Both driver and tour guide were down to earth. Very friendly. Driver drove safely to the destination.
Would highly recommend this tour!
Great tour marchello the guide was very charismatic. Only thing i missed there was going up into the mountain.
wonderful tour - excellent tour guide and very comfortable coach - the restaurant where we had lunch was cheap and had an excellent menu - try the cheese pie - it was delicious - after travelling for 10 weeks all over Europe this was by far the best tour.
Initially I was really disappointed because when I arrived to the tour, I was told it is cancelled because of not enough travellers. I only had that day in Zurich and I really wanted to go to Lichtenstein. We ended up going as we found two other travellers who joined last minute. Marcello the tour guide was great. He is funny, knowledgable and made this tour very enjoyable. The only thing I would recommend is starting this tour earlier, because on the way back it was past sunset so as we drove back by the beautiful lake, it was too dark to enjoy. I would highly recommend this tour.
Loved it; our guide and driver were both exceptional. It was beautiful and well worth the trip.
Had an excellent time. Lots to see and experience. Tour Guide was good
Wonderful. Our tour guide and bus driver were very nice, helpful and informative. We would definitely use your services again. Thanks for a wonderful tour!
