The tour operator didn't wait for us, when starting and made us run across the Zurich city to catch their bus for 1 hour. Tour guide Elizabeth is good but overall coordination is terrible where leaving the folks behind seems to a norm. Even at the top of cable car after reaching the top destination, the cafe had only cold drinks to offer. Terrible coordination overall at reasonably high fee!

It was an excellent experience. Our tour guide Conrad was brilliant! This tour is highly recommended to those who are only staying here for a few days.

Excellent guide and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to friends. The people very friendly and helpful. Public transport was very good and easy to get around. Food and drinks was very expensive similar to London prices. A very clean city to explore.

Tour guide was outstanding She was very helpful to my husband who has problems walking. Fascinating tour but wish the ferry ride was longer around the lake

It was a good tour. The guide was amazing and witty, Konrad kept an extremely good atmosphere with the tourists. However wished that we could’ve stayed at some spots more, but sometimes we did have to hurry. Other than that I loved it!
