What You Can Expect
After a guided orientation tour and some time at leisure in Rapperswil, enjoy a 2-hour cruise on the Lake of Zurich (unescorted). There is a restaurant on board for your convenience. First possible boat back is scheduled to arrive at 3:15pm at Zurich Buerkliplatz Pier.
Between November and March there are no boats operating, so you return to Zurich by modern train 'Gold Coast Express' along the romantic road that follows the lake-shore.
Our guide Peter was fun and knowledgeable, and this was a nice introduction to the city and lake area as our first day after the long overnight flight from the US. The boat ride back from Rapperswil was relaxing and scenic. Very nice and worth doing.
Incidentally, we saw Peter again the next day as he was running a Jungfrau tour that was slightly different from the one we were on, and he remembered us.
Great trip with a knowledgeable guide!
A very nice tour including the boat ride back to Zurich. A pleasant, knowledgeable and even funny tour guide made the trip well worth the money. Highly recommended, especially for first time visitors to Zurich
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.
Excellent tour guide and it was a fun day. i upgraded my tour to include Heidi land and L/stein. Climbing was tough on weak kness but I enjoyed it. Good cheesecake in Rapperwill. our group was made up of people from all parts of the world. Great!
What made this tour was the scenery! Zurich is sooooo beautiful! Be mindful of the boat trip back across the lake though. 2 hours is quite a long time.
This tour was excellent. 100% worth the time and money.
