Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach in central Zurich and embark on a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Receive a historical introduction to Zurich from your guide and direct your attention to landmarks such as the Swiss National Museum and the Zurich Opera House. Look out at Lake Zurich during a brief interlude, and then cruise past monuments like the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Zurich’s art museum.

Disembark for a leisurely stroll around Zurich’s charming Old Town (Altstadt), and admire quaint houses and grand political centers. Capture photographs of the world’s largest clock face on St Peter’s Church, and gaze at the prismatic stained glass windows that decorate Fraumünster Church. 

Reboard your coach for the short and scenic journey to Meilen, where a sightseeing ferry awaits. Enjoy a tranquil crossing of the lake, and then board a cable car on arrival in Adliswil. Ascend to a dizzying height of 2,630 feet (800 meters) and absorb sweeping vistas of the snow-capped spires that surround.

When your tour comes to a conclusion, return to your original Zurich departure point in a comfortable coach.

The tour guide was so cool, he is so smart and funny he is very approachable and we learned a lot about Zurich the building architecture how old are those even the churches. The most part I live was when we went to the mountain by cable car and the view up there is eeally breath taking. We had a very nice experienced and we're so happy.

We felt rushed in certain parts of the tour, especially with three young children. Barely had time to spend at the top of the cable car and no restroom break considered for the entire 4-hour excursion. Only after the first two restrooms were closed did we ask to please stop...the main operator seemed agitated. Only 10 minutes at the lake and back to the bus... Nikki from the UK was the saving grace for us. She provided lots of history and entertained the kids as much as possible. I would still recommend—just not with kids.

Dear Katrina, Thank you very much for having joined our extended city tour and for sharing your family's experience. It is important to us that also our little guests feel welcome on our tour and we therefore take your feedback very seriously. We regret to hear that the tour felt rushed in certain parts. As the aim of the tour is to give our guests a good overview of Zürich and its surroundings in just over four hours, it might not always allow for the time needed to explore at a child-friendly pace. However, the different stops allow both parents and children to get off the bus and to stretch their legs while exploring. Luckily your tour guide’s wife joined your tour and stayed with you and your children that were sleeping soundly on the bus, while he took the rest of your group on a guided stroll through the old town. Also, your group was quite small, which made it possible for your tour guide to extend the whole tour by nearly an hour and to give everyone more time at the different stops. We fully understand that the toilet situation was very inconvenient, especially for guests travelling with young children. While there are no toilets on the bus, there are public toilets available during the stop at the lakeside, near the car park before the guided old town stroll and later also at the Felsenegg restaurant on top of the cable car. Unfortunately, both the toilets at the lakeside and the car park were out of order and the group had to continue to catch the ferry in time. Well aware of the urgency of the problem (and perhaps a little agitated), your tour guide informed the ferry crew about the toilet emergency, but as they could not make an exception, the next toilet was only available after the ferry arrived in the harbour. In the unlikely event that the first two toilets are closed again at the same time, we will in future add a toilet break before boarding the ferry to ensure a pleasant trip for everybody. We hope that you and your family enjoyed a wonderful stay in Zürich and look forward to welcoming you again on your next trip to Switzerland. With best wishes from Zürich, Best of Switzerland Tours

For short stays in Zurich I would recommend this tour, as it covered all the interesting sites as well as a short walk through the "old town" The ferry across the lake and the trip up to Felsenegg was definitely worth the visit. Our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable and luckily everyone spoke English. We had a beautiful sunny day and the views from Felsenegg were amazing.

If you want to see Zurich, don't take this tour. Most of the time you are zooming around town like you're in a Fast and Furious movie. On the right is ______, on the left is ______, By the time you try to crane your neck to see the right ...you missed the left. The guide did her best, but by trying to explain what we were seeing in two languages, you weren't sure if what she was talking about was coming up, or if you had already passed it. Very disappointing.

Not good. It was rainy and foggy so we could not see anything on the Felsenegg cable car. This is no one's fault, but our group was so large that we had to go up on the cable car in 3 groups. The people that had to go up last had virtually no time at the top to enjoy a coffee or a bite to eat. Also when we actually got out of the bus, the guide was rushing everywhere, did not wait for anyone, and we pretty much heard nothing that she said. On the bus she would talk about things along the way, but the bus driver was going fast and we had no idea what buildings she was even talking about.
