Great trip but it needs to state that the boat ride is two hours. But the castle and the church were nice and Christmas markets.

Three of us signed up for this tour in September. We were lumped in with the Heidi tour. The actual Zurich part was minimal as we drove out of town. The tour guide was not quite as informative as we expected, for example he kept referring to the city of Rapperswil as the City of Roses but did not tell us why or how that name came about. He did not go easy on the facts and admiration for the tennis player Roger Federer, however. The kicker for this tour was that the boat ride back from Rapperswil was not a quick ferry ride but an actual two hour ride. No tour guiding on it as the tour guide split up from us as we arrived in Rapperswil so that he could conntinue with the Heidi group. We accidentally stumbled upon the beautiful rose garden that we presume is the namesake for the city, but no thanks to the guide. Would sorta not recommend, it´s good we like boat trips, but more info during would have been more appreciated.

tour didn't follow what described on line. we were expecting to go on cable car at Fassenegg that didnt occur. instead we were brought to Raperswill where we got a tour of a castle. that was good but took so long that we had no time to wander the town before we had to get the boat back. had to grab a bite at McDonald's instead of a nice lunch to get to the boat. the boat ride was very nice.

Great tour through the most important places of Zürich city by touringcar with airco and ship on the lake. The bus driver (mr Heiblom?) is very friendy, a good driver in the narrow streets and a gentlemen for the other traffic. We felt very safe and comfortable.
