A great way to see zurich if you have only a short time in the city. We saw sites we would not have seen otherwise...
Loved it! We only had one day in Zurich and we booked a half day tour which was perfect. It took us into the Beverly Hills of Zurich which we wouldn't have seen if we didn't do this tour. Conveniently located to our hotel (across the street).
It was great , short, well organized tour and the lady guide were amazing
We like to get to know the area soon after we arrived Zurich and it's a wonderful way of doing this.
This was an excellent way to see Zurich,and the Guide was very knowledgable.
We went on the afternoon trip,but with hindsight as it stops at the old quarter,the morning would be best so you can walk around the old town better.They do take you back to the starting point if you want.Very good value for money.
We enjoyed the trip on Zurich sightseeing and old industrial warehouses.
I booked this tour online on a whim, as we had a 5 hour wait between flights and I thought we could see the City in that time. Yep we did, and it was great! Our guide was impressive in not only her knowledge and attention to the detail of the city but in her caring attitude and her ability to swap from English to Spanish and make sure she treated each group with a fairness of time and attention. She took photos of us for us and she made sure everyone was present when she got us all round the pretty Old City. The cog train ride was great and the usual passengers didn't seem to mind that our group took over the train and never stopped clicking and pushing to get the best place to get the next picture. The only problem was nothing to do with the tour and its content. It was the fact there was not enough signage from the railway station to get to the bus station, and no one seemed to know or care - if they spoke English that is. So get a map from the the airport to the train tracks and then from the station to the bus station, and use the station toilet, as the one at the bus station is one of those automated ones that was not pleasant! We loved the tour and as we have so many Swiss Francs left we're going to have to find another trip to go on in Switzerland and we'll certainly use Viator again!
Good tour and just enough time to get to know the main parts of the city.
Good tour - took 1/2 day city tour as we had limited time in Zurich. Tour guide did a good job keeping the tour together, providing information on sites, and answering questions. Saw a lot in a little time.
The weather was quite chilly so the tour was a nice combination of bus, the cogwheel train to Doner sp? and walking around. Our guide Peter was knowledgeable, pleasant and seemed to really enjoy his job. He is clearly very proud of Zurich. We learned alot about the history of Zurich, saw the key sites and felt like the 3 hours was very well organized.
Well worth the money and was able to see sights that I would have missed if left on my own.
A nice bus tour of the city. Our guide was a native of Zurich and provided a lot of great info. I loved taking the funicular up the mountain and seeing the city view from above. Kudos to the bus driver for deftly navigating those narrow, twisting roads so well!
Thoroughly enjoyed the overview of the city of Zurich. Gave much insight as to where to spend the rest of my travel time. Very good!
It was a great tour to see the highlight of Zurich when we had very limited time. The sightseeing tour includes almost all parts of Zurich, the old town and the modern part. The first stop at the lakeshore of lake Zurich was great for us to take some beautiful pictures of the fountain and boats on the lake. We also enjoyed the time to go up the hill by tram to see the famous luxury hotel above the hill and the city view from above. The rooms for improvement are 1) the English accent of the tour guide which is not easy to be listened and 2) no restroom available when we stopped at the old town. Overall, the tour is great and recommended for those visited Zurich for the first time.
Very basic...but like the name says, it is just 'highlights', so one can't expect too much. Useful for noting down what places you would like to visit later on.
This tour helps you learn about the history and
geography of Zurich. We had a wonderful time.
The tour at 11 am had less than 5 guests so we had to do the 1 pm tour. The tour guide was great and we had a good time! Thanks!
It was informative. It was helpful orientation to Zurich. Guide did an adequate job but did not come across as if she wants to take the extra mile in customer service. You ask a question and she answers it. Overall, our family had an ok experience with this tour.
Worth it for a quick introduction to Zurich - nothing outstanding. Tour Operator, Best in Switzerland, is well organized and seemed dependable. Coach was comfortable. Guide was good. Unfortunately, it rained that day so we did get wet the 2 or 3 times we left the bus.
We only had a day in Zurich and wanted an overview. This afternoon tour gave it to us. It was worth doing, and we got to see more of Zurich than we were able on our own in the morning. Unfortunately we had a commitment later in the day and we had to miss the portion dealing with the Chagall windows - fortunately we had visited them on our own in the morning, but would have been pleased to hear our guide discuss them in more detail.
The only problem we had was in trying to catch the tour. I obviously did not fully understand the directions on where to meet. We finally saw a bus we thought might be our tour heading down the street and we chased it for about 3 blocks and finally caught it at a traffic light. It was our bus, and it was just starting, so we did not miss anything, but it was an unpleasant start.
