Highlights of Zurich
, Jan 2022
It was an easy way to see the highlights of Zurich. However, there is only an audio guide you listen to and a bus driver. The tape and the bus were not always in sync. The audio tape is telling you to look at something that you have already passed or have not yet reached. The bus driver was also grouchy and non-communicative. He was a good driver.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with this city tour. According to your description, it seems, as it does NOT concern our 'Zurich City Tour Experience', because our city tour is operated in a special vehicle equipped with a modern audio-guide system. Our guests can choose from 11 languages and the GPS system guarantees that the correct commentary is played at the right spot. We would be pleased to welcome you on our tour, next time when you are in Zurich to convince you of our services. Best regards / Madeleine
Never found the starting...
, Sep 2021
Never found the starting location in time (poor address on our voucher) so we missed the trip. Something more accurate than 8005 Zurich (turns out to be an area code) would have helped.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
We regret the problem you were facing but wish to point out that on the booking/voucher it says Departure point. Bus Station, 8005 Zurich. This is correct and but when only '8005 Zurich' is searched/googled than you get the information of the area 8005 and not the bus terminal. Our tours are leaving from the Bus Terminal, which is centrally located just 200 meter behind Zurich-HB (main railway station). We would have assisted you in finding the spot if you would have called us.
Good History Tour
, Mar 2020
It was really nice learning about Zurich’s rich history and really fast to get to my on a layover. The address on the site isn’t a complete address which did make it a little difficult to get dropped off. It would’ve been nice to have the address to the Starbucks that the site references. My Uber driver got lost.
Very informative and fun!
, Feb 2020
Very informative tour. Learned so much and saw a lot of the city. Great if you’re only in Zurich for a couple of days and want to see everything, quickly. Loved that we had two stops to get out and take pics by the water. Highly recommend!
Zurich city tour
, Dec 2019
Tour is giving a basic idea about the city and important places and significance about them in a short time period
Just Average
, Nov 2019
Was an okay time, but basic info and boring to the point that we ended up getting off the bus early.
, Oct 2019
No proper address mention on the website or printed on ticket. We have to call Viator and was referred to the local vendor to give us the instruction of the meeting place. When the tour ended, we were just dropped off on the opposite street not as advertised on the website. Giving us so much inconvenience to walk back to the terminal specially to people with mobility issue like my wife and to people waiting to pick us up. Took us 10-15 min to walk back. For your info: Tour date was October 20th 2pm tour. Please specify more clearly and advise the driver to bring us back to the terminal as advertised. Very upsetting.

We enjoyed a wonderful tour around Zurich on a drizzly Monday morning, learning lots of history in a fun and memorable way. Listening to his talks, the city and its people really came alive for us. Thanks so much.
Quick Zurich tour for people with little time.
, Aug 2019
It was a great quick tour of the city. I highly can recommend it if one wants to get the overall picture and has a limited time. there was a little confusion and the start of the tour as it looks like two companies are offering the same tour starting at the same place, but it was well handled. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
