Then, make your way to the Limmatquai, a vibrant, historical shopping, dining and hotel area with many interesting buildings dating from the days of the rich Guilds that governed Zurich until 1789.
In Old Town (Altstadt), view the Lindenhof, the historical site of a Roman castle situated on a hillside, from where you can get great views of Old Town during own exploration later. Head to St Peter, one of the four main churches in Old Town whose clock face is the largest in all of Europe. Admire the castle-like Swiss National Museum, visit the Zünfte guilded houses and the Zurich Opera House, and stop at Lake Zurich for photo ops.
The 2-hour tour includes a ride on the cogwheel railway (Dolderbahn). Travel uphill to the Zurichberg district, where you’ll marvel at superb mansions and the renovated five-star Grand Hotel Dolder.
See the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, whose most famous former student and professor is Albert Einstein. Finally, stop at Church of Our Lady (Fraumünster) to admire and learn about the world-famous Chagall Windows, created by famous artist Marc Chagall. These beautiful stained-glass windows bathe the chapel in a rainbow of light.
4-Hour TourThis tour combines Zurich’s culture and natural beauty. Similar to the 2-hour tour, you'll see major attractions including Old Town, St Peter church, the Bahnhofstrasse, the Limmatquai and the Zünfte guilded houses. Make a photo stop at Enge Harbor to enjoy a beautiful view of Lake Zurich, the city and the surrounding hills, and then visit Church of Our Lady (Fraumünster) to admire and learn about the famous Chagall Windows.
Your journey continues to Adliswil for a ride on an aerial cable car, affording incredible panoramic vistas of the city, Lake Zurich and the snow-covered Alps. Disembark at Felsenegg, a vantage point offering sweeping city views.This experience is highly recommended!
Finally, take a 10-minute ferry ride across Lake Zurich. When you reach the shore, you’ll take a drive back to Zurich along the stunning Gold Coast, a prosperous region on the northeastern shore of the lake that’s graced by the warm yellow light of the evening sun.

Even when the Spring Festival was ongoing our good guide Beàt was able to tour us around Zurich and see the churches and outskirts, took a ferry across Lake Zurich and we were able to ride the cable car to see the panoramic view of Zurich. We saw the Dolder Grand hotel where royalty and presidents stay, the Opera house, Universities and stopped to see the ongoing parade. Zurich is a lovely city and trams make it easy to go around. Having a hotel in the Old Town makes it easy to see the attractions because theyre nearby

This was a fantastic private tour definitely the best way to do a tour! My friends and I had a wonderful tour guide, Heinz, a perfect gentleman who was very polite and had plenty of patience as he showed three senior ladies around his lovely city. He even was willing to wait whilst we did a little souvenir shopping. We were unable to do the cable car ride due circumstances beyond his control but the cog wheel train ride was a unique experience and thoroughly enjoyable'. Jean one of three happy customers.
