If you want to witness all the highlights and history of Zurich getting a flavour of the city as well as the essence of its culture than this tour suits the requirement best.This tour is ideal for a family especially kids as the look of the trolley and its interiors makes you fall in love with the whole experience of taking a ride in it and it feels as you have gone back in the 60s.Both me and my wife wanted to explore Zurich city but were tired of the same coach or walking style tours,so we went for this unique adventure and thoroughly enjoyed it.It has a multilingual commentary on board,it covers all the major highlights of the city,gives you photo opportunities with some stops on the way and free time at each stop.I definitely recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Was a great introduction to Zurich. We only had an afternoon there so opted for the 2 hour tour which was great. We even got off a bit early (at the harbour) and then did a 2 hour boat cruise (which was free with our Eurail ticket). Lovely day.
