We booked this trip last minute and were very glad we did. The tour gave us a good look at Zurich. We rode on a comfortable bus. The stops allowed us to get off and take pictures and we were allowed ample time at each stop. The tour guide gave great insight into the history of Zurich.

Aunque Zurich no es impresionante como otras ciudades europeas nuestra guia fue fantastica y nuestro recorrido fue estupendo

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Our tour guide was excellent. She joked and gave a warm personal touch to the tour. We loved her. Just one suggestion--please leave at least 1 hour for the Felsenegg area after we reach the top. In 30 minutes--one cannot do any justice to the beauty of this place. Of the 40 minutes 5 minutes are required each way to walk to the vista point/restaurant.
