The tour was OK. We did a lot more walking than expected (it's a bus tour) and my wife stayed on the bus because of her bad knee. If you don't stand near the tour guide during these walks, you won't hear the details of what he says.

This was the worse city tour that I have gone on and I've been on many city tours including Barcelona, Madrid, Auckland, Sidney, Melbourne, Nice, Prague,...First off we started late and ended early so the tour was less than 2 hours. It was supposed to be 2 1/4 hour long. We were supposed to have a picture stop and short introduction walk in Old Town. I don't why, but the guide decided to go back to the bus station early and we did not see St Peter church with Europe's largest clock face, the Grossmunster church and the Framunster church with the famous stained glass windows by Marc Chagal. In addition the tour was in German and English. There were only 4 Germans on the bus and over 30 English speaking passengers. Half of the time we were blocks past the sight that was being discussed because the discussion was in German first. Also, our guide was more interested in talking about the rules such as getting back to the bus on time after a photo stop and asking for a tip at the end of the tour. The middle door of the bus was not opened at the end of the tour forcing everyone to exit out the front door. Neither the guide or driver assisted anyone out of the bus, but both had their hands out for tips!
There are other companies that offer city tours in Zurich. I would not recommend this company if you are interested in a city tour of Zurich.

The trip time is short compared to the traffic jam and the distance traveled. The time spent at Lake Zurich need to be increased.
However the trip gives a very good overview of Zurich for one to plan separate visits later for the areas covered.
I recommend to take this trip at the earliest possibility of your arrival to Zurich so you can plan accordingly your individual visits.
