Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Explore Zurich’s highlights from three different perspectives: cable car, ferry boat, and luxury coach.
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.

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.

The tour is a blur.

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.

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.

So so tour

My husband got hurt with a sudden stop and hit his chest on the railing. The tour guide did not bother to ask if he is ok And just ignored and never showed any concern or compassion. We wanted to buy water so we can give a tip but he said the tour is done we dont sell water anymore when we wanted just a bottle. So with that being said we changed our mind on giving a tip to an in-compassionate tour guide who just told us his job is done which means its just a job for him and diesnt bother if it was an enjoyable one! Never asked if we had fun unlike other tour guide!

Good bus based Zurich area tour.

This tour was mainly a bus ride through various areas of Zurich and a good way to see the general area without too much walking. The ferry ride was on the bus to get across Lake Zurich, although you could get out of the bus while on the short, 10 minute ferry ride.

Fantastic tour. Short walking tour, calming ferry ride, and beautiful views from the cable car. Great time all around.
