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.
This is a tour worth doing. We had it combined with the Heidiland tour. Brilliant tour.
Pros- Short tour of Zurich but interesting to hear information from guide- also interesting talk on journey to Rapperswill. Pretty little town with small promenade on lake where we had a picnic lunch. Enjoyed the relaxing trip on the boat back to Zurich.
Cons- was told entry to castle was free. We walked in without seeing anyone and halfway round met a member of staff who told us that entry was 5 francs and we could pay on exit. The castle had a Polish museum that was probably interesting to Polish people and the tower housed a contemporary display. Felt misled that guide gave us wrong information.
if u are short of time and u want to cover half the city in a day, this will be the best way.
Would recommend this as an initial overview to the city and then go back and see sights more in depth. Tour guide was pleasant but a bit 'scatter-brained"! :-) Trip back on Lake Zurich quite nice. Pack your own lunch in advance and weather permitting enjoy by the shores of Lake Zurich or on the boat trip back.
Tour was fine, but we sure got tired of hearing about the banking center in Zurich. These people are far too hung up on their wealth.
City tour was very rushed but tour of the village of Rapperswil and the lake cruise back to Zurich was excellent. Guide was quite knowledgable and witty.
guide was knowledgeable but tour left us wanting. Most of the tour was diving thru Zurich w only one stop, at a church, before we took bus to Rapperswil. Better value would be in the CHF 30 vs CHF 50+ we paid, esp w lack of boat tour in the winter making it 1.5 vs 3+ hr tour
