Our guide, Urs, was very informative and gave us an added stop at the lake because had time and pointed out several cool facts about Zurich. The bus was really nice and comfortable. This is a great tour if your looking for a combination of walking and riding on the bus and boat.

The tour starts with the west side of Zurich which is the industrial side of Zurich and its not that great but the visit to the Lindt chocolate factory outlet and the Zurich lake cruise was just out of this world! The Lindt outlet was like stepping in to a dream world of chocolates wrapped in beautiful wrappings. There are discounted items as well which are of slight manufacturing errors but are of very good taste. There is sort of a photobooth where people can take pictures in a set background and get it emailed, which was fun. The 1 hour Zurich lake cruise was so so beautiful with the view of Alps in a distance. Our tour guide was Annete and she spoke good English and was very kind and helpful.

I enjoyed this tour very much, if I could change one thing it would be to add a factory tour. Seeing the old warehouses was interesting, but a factory tour would have been more exciting. By adding a glass wall, you could have walking tours and no germs spreading to the chocolate.
