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.

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.

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.

Great small taste of Zurich- but it was limited, as is expected from a bus cannot do Zurich truly without a walking tour. The trip to Rapperswil and the boat ride back in itself was worth it. Rapperswil was absolutely stunning though- beautiful town and rose gardens.

My family and I were able to see a lot of "must see sights" in a short time. It was worth the long travel. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful.

This was a wonderful tour with excellent guide. It gave us a good snapshot of Zurich to encourage our own further exploring.

Unfortunately there was a festival on in Zurich and we couldn't tour the city area. The rest of the sightseeing tour was good.

Trip was fabulous. But another weak guide. Left half the group
wandering . Didnt have his timelines down the boaters got no lunch.
He was entertaining himself more than overseeing the group. Odd .

Great tour if you have only a short time in Zurich.
Tour guides command of English was not good and he was not a European either.

Very nice, but would have liked to know more about the "Liechtenstein top-up" beforehand as the boat cruise is rather long, especially feels long when it's raining

Very good value for money. Went on to extend this tour to include the Heidiland tour. Well worth returning to do in the summer. As the walk that one could do was closed for the time of year

Zurich itself has limited places of interest. The time in Rapperswill is enjoyable and well worth the visit.
