Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the The Zurich Trolley Experience. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Not great. Seating is uncomfortable and designed more for children than adults. A booster step is very much needed for those who are shorter or senior citizens order to navigate the trolley steps. The narrative was fine although it was intermittent or non-existant during some parts of the tour. The tour guide/driver left a lot to be desired as he could have been more helpful. I have been on other tours in other parts of the world (I work for a global airline) wherein the guide was friendlier and more informative. Thankfully Zurich is beautiful regardless. I would not recommend this tour...unfortunately. A more personalized approach combined with less of a desire to cram us into the trolley as if in a sardine can would lend itself to a more favorable experience.
The tour covered sights which for the most part could easily be seen on foot. The time needed for the tour seemed to be so the bus could negotiate the numerous building works which also obscurred many of the sights - those that were not obscurred already by air conditioner motors. We were told in the onboard commentary, on a number of occasions - 'this was where the old town wall and fortifications were, until they were pulled down and the stones used for buildings'??? We felt this tour was a waste of money.
It is too short, another regions of the city could habe been shown. The bus is not comfortable.
supposed to be a two hour tour. almost 30 min. late in starting and he rushed us so that he could get back. a few minutes here and a few minutes there. trolley difficult to take pictures out of.
Found that almost the same tour was incorporated in the Heidiland and Liechenstein tour and the driver was very disinterested , could have saved time and money.
Everything went smoothly but the tour wasn't anything special. The trolley was a bit old and loud so that you really had to turn up the headphones volume. Next time I'll rather book a live guide who can accompany us into the attractions.
It's a good way to get a lay of the land. Noting was really especially exciting, just a few stops and listening to a tape in English. It is worth doing, though, when you first arrive. It gives a pretty good overview of Zurich.
This was not a 2 hour tour. Everyone commented that this was 1 hour 40 min which included 2 stops of 10 mins and 15 mins. Although the audio commentary was informative, the whole tour lacked a human touch. The driver was grumpy and unhelpful, giving the impression that he wanted the whole tour to end as soon as possible.
Uncomfortable seating. Unable to take good photos in the trolley. Would not recommend.
Our taxi driver could not find the bus terminal, so we missed the tour (unfortunately).
This one is awful. The Viator website offers an option for a guide but that option is not available when you get there. There is no Viator person anywhere in the area and all you get is a crummy recording that is not in sync with the driver so you cannot tell that the recording is referring to. One of our headsets did not work and the driver was no help. The amount of information on the recording was minimal. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Not worth the money. City does not offer much except that one can say they saw Zurich. Poor route, sights normal and time too short.
Very disappointing tour. This should be run as a hop-on hop-off tour not a 2 hour tour.
This trip was a prerecorded tour, and the bus driver just pointed out the windows at the different sites. I would have booked another tour, had I known what this tour was.
