Hello, We had a great time and tasting chocolate in different forms was really amazing. Thank you so much!

I automatically deducted one point for having a dirty windshield. It is hard enough to take photos on a moving bus, but when the windshield is dirty on a SIGHTSEEING TOUR, it guarantees worsened visibility and photos. These kind of details are important and when I mentioned it to the driver Francesco, he poo poo’d me. I will include a photo. Enough on that topic. The tour was otherwise enjoyable and interesting. Zurich is beautiful and we got to enjoy a sample of it on bus, on boat, on light rail and by foot. Gallus our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The Lindt Chocolate Headquarters tour was awesome. My one other construction criticism is that the stopping point for photos at the top of Zurich Hill wasn’t that picturesque. We were not able to get photos of Lake Zurich below from that spot because the view was impeded by houses. If you fix those two things, I would recommend the tour as a nice way to get a taste of beautiful Zurich in an afternoon.

Tour guide was friendly and informative. Bus was impeccable. Sites chosen were wonderful. Of course, Lindt was delicious.

Had a great driver and tour guide, it was clear there was walking, but some people on tour didn’t read well and were caught off guard by the walking, we loved it to get in and see things.

Oh my gosh. So many free samples given that you'll never want to eat chocolate again. Lol They keep this place in pristine condition. It's beautiful and fun.
