I had been to Zurich before, but only for 1 day. This tour gave me the highlights of the city that I would have missed on my own. Well worth it! Not tons of walking but enough to get you off the bus (coach) and up close to buildings and views for great pictures. The drive along Lake Zurich and seeing the “Gold Coast” and the “Silver Coast” was great! That was news to me. And the short ferry ride going from one coast to another was fun. The bus took us to catch a tram or cable car to Felsenegg. Gorgeous view from up there and a must for taking great pictures. Don’t forget to grab some hot chocolate or some gluhwein at the restaurant at Felsenegg. Once off the cable car, you do have to walk to get to the restaurant.

This was a very well-organized tour of the major cultural and historical highlights of the city of Zürich. The bus was easy to find and we departed promptly into the city traffic. Our guide gave excellent commentary over the course of several hours in English and Spanish. The vehicle ferry across Lake Zurich was a nice touch, as was the cablecar ascent in Adliswil. The peak boasted great views of the region complemented by a nice treat at the Felsenegg restaurant—though it was an overcast day for us. We concluded with a brief walking tour of the Altstadt.

For an international traveler it was very good. I got to see many things in just a day which I think I could not do by myself. The tourist guide tried a lot to entertain us and was nice too.

Francisca was an amazing guide. She managed the tour really well.

The places is beautiful. The service was exceptional!
