The trip was really excellent! We enjoyed it very much. Everything was perfectly organized, exact timing, we visited all the places as written in the plan, safe journey - skilled driver. The bus was very comfortable. The guide Michael (H.Meier Tourist AG - GrayLine, Zurich) is a top-guide - cultured, educated, who gave us a lot of facts and interesting information about the life, culture, history and nature of Switzerland; his English is really excellent. He was even telling us in short the whole story of Heidi during the journey, so everyone could then just "flow" straight into the Heidi's fairytale in real Heidiland. :-) This was one of our best trips we experienced so far.

An amazing trip ! A very knowledgeable tour guide , Peter, and Peter, the bus driver made the trip so much more enjoyable ! The initial part through Zurich was unexpected but very informative. Recommended to everybody thats wants to see and experience the Heidiland/Heididorf excursion !

The trip was excellent. Walter our tour guide was very informative about all the places. He also showed us important places at Zurich. A great person and good at cracking jokes.. would definitely recommend this tour. Both the places are just too good.

The tour guide and bus driver were punctual. The tour was well-organized and informative. I hope to do this again next time in Zürich with guests.

Maybe it would be good to have more time in Lichtenstein, but in general, I enjoyed the tour.
