Got a good glimpse of the city of Zurich in a short time. It helped us to get a feel of the city and explore further on our own

Great way to see Zurich and learn the history! Beautiful sights. Not big on tours. Definitely worth it. Although some other people on tour made it difficult for us to stay on time.

The tour ia a good opportunity to kinow the higjlights of Zurich, with ferry and cable car ride experience, during a short stay in Zurich. The tour guide is very good. It is a good thing that we did our own tour of the Old Town the day before since the time allotted for the Old Town in the tour is very limited.. We enjoyed the tour and worth the price we paid.

This tour was a perfect way to spend an afternoon experiencing Zurich and its surroundings. Granted our tour was adjusted due to the Spring Festival's closure of streets in the Old Town, but in 4 1/2 hours, we were in the coach, a cograil train to an overlook, a ferry across to a cablecar that took us to Felsenegg's overlook and a charming restaurant for hot chocolate and apple strudel. The unexpected views of the countryside were green and peaceful with roaming cows and goats...just like the picture postcards.
