Efficient time organized by tour leader, the tour leader/security officer at Lindt Home need to tell visitor about bag/backpack before joining factory tour

Such a well done tour. I learned so much about chocolate. The tasting was unbelievable. It's east to get to with public transportation too.

This tour in theory sounds nice. But when you get there there are servers things that were not communicated. The bus ride was about 20 mins thru the city. Then you have to walk for a half hour outside and you never return to the bus again. It was raining out and I did not know we would be walking outside. Had I known, I would have brought an umbrella. Nobody had extras or was nice enough to share so I soaked and all my things got wet. Then, there was no stop for lunch at all. There was barely enough time to grab some mediocre street food at the boat dock area before boarding the boat. The chocolate museum was very nice but we only had one hour there. I felt rushed and was afraid to be lost because it did not seem like they were keeping track of people that much. Also, this tour is with everyone from several different groups and the people doing just the boat tour were at a different time so if you made friends at the beginning then you’d never see them again. The end finishes with public transportation. For the value it would be nice to have the bus pick us up, instead of waiting for a crowded bus where half the people were crammed or had to stand. It would be much more helpful if the walking and lack of a stop for lunch was communicated beforehand. For the money it’s better to just ride the boat yourself and go to the chocolate factory yourself.

The meeting point is close to the main train station in Zurich so very convenient. The buses are air conditioned and comfortable. You first do a quick bus tour of Zurich, with the guide pointing out landmarks and sites. Then you do a quick walking tour of old town, which lasts about 15 min. Then there is a boat ride to the Lindt chocolate factory with tour included in ticket price. At this point you have the choice to ride the city bus back to starting point with the guide or take the cruise on your own. You have a 24 hour ticket that is valid on all public transportation in Zurich. We chose to take the leisurely cruise back to the city, and it was well worth it. The tour is done in about half a day and you have the rest of the day to explore the city on your own. The visit to the chocolate factory was well worth it. A lot of information and yummy chocolate to sample. The walking tour felt a little short, perhaps we could have some more info about the history and the landmarks we visited. Still, I would highly recommend the tour.
