This tour hit the highlights of Zurich in a single evening. We got to see some of the sights, then went to the Lindt Home of Chocolate to shop their store where you could buy your body weight in chocolate (at least it felt like it!) The evening finished with a gondola ride to Felsenegg for a traditional fondue dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful and we had plenty of time to enjoy the meal.

Our guide was excellent! We spent just enough time at the Lindt factory then took a cable car gondola ride up the mountain to eat at this quaint little restaurant which was so much fun. They gave us mulled warm wine and appetizers in the snow. So perfect! We went inside for salad, fondue, and chocolate cake then took the gondola back down the mountain. We did have to sit around 15-30 minutes longer than necessary waiting to leave the restaurant, but otherwise it was 5 stars!

A great and tasty tour.

We were fortunate to be in a smaller group- only 14 people. Our guide drove us around Zurich and pointed out important landmarks. The highlight of the tour was the cable car ride to the top of the mountain and dinner at the restaurant, Felsenegg. That was a great experience. It should be pointed out that it is a bit of a walk from the cable car to the restaurant. It’s a pretty steep incline (downhill to the restaurant and uphill back to the cable car). People with mobility issues would have a hard time. And did I mention the visit to the Lindt Chocolate outlet? We only had 15 minutes, but it was enough. Lots of free samples and unique flavor offerings. The directions to the meeting place were great, but they don’t tell you to check in at the Best of Switzerland kiosk. Once you do that, you are directed to the proper tour bus.
