We were picked up on time and the tour initially wound its way through the streets of Zurich giving us some background of the city before we proceeded to the quaint town of Rapperswil in Switzerland. We then had time here viewing the castle, the quaint streets and had a delicious lunch at a restaurant in the centre of town. We then continued our journey through the hills of Switzerland and our guide and driver were good enough to stop off and allow us to have some time enjoying the snow just outside one of the smaller towns. We then continued to Vaduz in Liechtenstein and enjoyed our visit here, although we would have liked more time at Liechtenstein exploring. The Heidiland part of the tour was intriguing and enjoyable. The entire was worthwhile and gave us a fantastic glimpse of this beautiful part of the world
I went on this fantastic tour by myself in September. The guide, Walter, was fun, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The driver, Armando did a good job too. The visibility wasn and #39;t the best the day we went to Heidiland but there was still plenty of beauty to be seen. Thank you for a great day!!!
I would highly recommend this tour to anybody who visits Switzerland who doesn't have enough time to see places as much as they like. Visiting Heidiland and Liechtenstein in one day with our very informative but with a great sense of humor guide Walter made the almost 7 hour trip amazing. We were given enough time to eat, take bathroom breaks, and most especially to take photos. The driver Armando took us to the destinations with ease and professionally. Thank you to both Walter and Armando for ensuring that we had a great time visiting Switzerland.
We had an amazing time. The tour guide Marcelo was full of jokes. The views were amazing I highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide was so funny and informative! Switzerland is a beautiful country to drive through...so clean. Liechtenstein was short stop and mostly shopping. Heidiland was a 15 minute trek to reach the house but the scenery along the way was amazing. Would definitely recommend this tour!
My wife and I absolutely LOVED our Viator trip to Heidiland and Lieichtenstein. Our fabulous tour guide was Walter and if you are lucky enough to have him on you tour, you will have an excellent day!
We got on the clean and spacious bus on October 24th and it departed right on time. Our first stop was in Rappersvil, a small and beautiful village just outside of Zurich. We loved the village, stayed for lunch and walked the surrounding area. Returning to the bus, we soon saw the beautiful Alps in the background, just beginning to how snow on the mountain tops, as we approached Liechtenstein and the villages nestled on the mountainsides were very much like what I thought Switzerland would be like gorgeous. Liechtenstein itself was interesting for me as it was a goal destination since I was about 10 years old. It took 56 years for me to make this trip. We walked a small central area, saw the Vaduz castle perched high on the mountain though it was not open to visitors that day and did a bit of shopping. I explored every inch of this tiny country, as much as our approximate 1 hour would allow and of course, had my passport stamped.
Coming back, the tour stopped in Heidiland which also gave my wife and me an opportunity to have a nice walk in the beautiful countryside and visit Grandfathers farm as in the famous book, Heidi. This was not overly touristy at all but did offer a small gift shop. The cows with their clanging bells, chickens, goats and beautiful mountain scenery made me think of times long past and it was a truly beautiful and peaceful experience.
This trip took most of the day and I would not change a thing! I think it may well have been the highlight of our 7 country tour. My wife and I returned to Zurich after another fabulous and scenic ride home on the bus very pleased with our day and with many very happy memories of the tour, and our guide, Walter. In my mind, this was an absolutely wonderful day.
I was dreaming about visiting this place since I was young. Heidi cartoon was famous in my country during my generation. The scenery was amazing. The tour guide Peter was the best tour guide ever. He was very knowledgable and provided lots of information about the different locations we visited and about Switzerland in general. He was very helpful.
LOVED this tour!! We didn't have a lot of time in Switzerland but really wanted to see something other than the city. This tour was simply wonderful! Our tour guide, Tomas was very knowledgeable and along with our driver Hoffritz, I think? they made the journey loads of fun! We loved the stop in Rapperswil as well as our short time in Liechtenstein and of course, Heidiland! The beauty of the landscape and buildings was breathtaking...even on a cloudy, wet day. And the special extras we were able to take part in thanks to Tomas and our driver made the tour even more enjoyable! Highly recommend!
The scenery along this trip is exceptional and breathtaking. The bus brought us to countryside that were surrounded by nearby mountain ranges and peaks, with rolling pastures or villages dotting the slopes or valleys. The characteristic Swiss chalets along the way in farms or villages are delightful. The tour guide Peter was enthusiastic and friendly, and gave us in depth and interesting explanations along the way. I'd highly recommend this memorable tour as it gives an insight into the essence of Switzerland.
Tour guide Marcelo is very funny, not a dull moment in this tour. The view is spectacular. I highly recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed our day, and our guide was great. We had a chance to see the beautiful countryside and the Switzerland that you often read about.
Wonderful mix of city touring and the countryside.
Liechtenstein was primarily a tourist shopping stop
And not much to see. Heidiland was the surprise -
A bit of an uphill trek, but the scenery was beautiful and it was a great time to be in the mountains.
The guide spoke multi- languages and handled the three languages superbly.
An action packed day. The tour guide was very attentive and friendly. Spectacular scenery and lovely archetecture. Vaduz is a little disappoining, but the journey is worth it!
We had an amazing driver Armando and amazing tour guide Walter. Our trip was very fun. Filled with information but also we got to know each person on the bus and had a great time.
Everything was very organized. Everything was on time.
We would recommend this tour to anyone. I do have mobility problems and there are a lot of stairs or walking I couldn't do, however I was absolutely happy to just take in what I could. I received as much help as I needed from both gentlemen.
I went back today to see if my missing sweater was left on the bus. It was waiting for me.
Thank you Walter and Armando for my first tour in Europe!!!
I enjoyed this tour and we saw and did a lot in one day. Rapperswil was very pretty and I could've spent a little more time there. The time in Liechtenstein was not very long, but I felt appropriate for what I wanted to do get my passport stamp, look in the postal museum and some shops, and just take a look around. We had perfect weather and views at Heidiland were wonderful. We did had to walk up a hill to get there. I enjoyed the views, chatting with tourmates, and hearing cowbells during the walk, but the length and the incline may be difficult for some people. It cost extra to go into the house, which I did since I figured I would never be there again, but I felt it wasn't worth it- or at least it would've been nice if we got a group rate to go inside since many people from the tour went in there. The house and cottages provided for some nice pictures and I enjoyed watching the goats. The tour guide, Marcello, was very good and I learned a lot. There is a lot of time on the bus, but the views were great during the whole ride.
A lovely tour into the Swiss countryside which also included a short city tour at the start. Liechtenstein was especially nice and the scenery throughout was very captivating.
Everything was fantastic, the pick up, the guide, the driver and the drop off was great! I enjoyed myself immensely
