I may have given it five stars if I'd been allowed to complete the trip. Half way in after the second stop, I returned well before the 10 minutes alloted to see the tram leaving without me. I'd arrived in the city only 2 hours earlier. Fortunately I had a Zurich Card and can read German, so was able to find my way back. The trip was less than 50% full and I was the only white older single traveller.
This trolley tour was fine for somebody who ha a few hours to spend in Zurich. We liked the guided tour of Zurich with a visit to chocolate factor. We have seen more attractions in this tour including the residences of the Rich and the Famous people. However. disappointed for not seeing the chocolate making tour of the factory.
Driver was in hurry so could not really grasp much. I would recommend other options.
This is a good tour to get an overview of the city if you are not going to do any other tours or if time is shor.t Don't do it if you are planning the other tours around zurich as they all do an overview of the city.

Since I had a very short time in Zurich, it was worth it. I collect pigs in all the places I visit. I was glad I was able to find one during this tour.
The tour was informative and gives you a good overview of the city if you are only there for a short time.
It would have been better if it was open top ,could not see the sights properly .
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.
