We had a beautiful day and thoroughly enjoyed our outing. The boat ride back to Zurich was very enjoyable and the historic town we visited was very interesting

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.

This is a tour worth doing. We had it combined with the Heidiland tour. Brilliant tour.

Visited 12th century church in Zurich with beautiful stained glass windows by Marc Chagall. It encapsulated a part of the religious history of Switzerland as well as being beautiful. Trip to Rapperswill was also very interesting. Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Boat ride back to Zurich was the icing on the cake!

The bus tour was nice, but our guide could have talked more about the history of Zurich on the trip around the lake. The boat ride on Lake Zurich was relaxing but not informative.

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.
