We didnt have much time in Zurich, so doing the 4 1/2 hr. tour was the perfect way to see a lot of different sites. It started driving around the city with our guide pointing out points of interest. then the bus took us to a very quaint town. walked the grounds of the castle with the deer park. the remainder of the guests choose to go on to the entire day tour and we opted to take the boat back into town. it was a beautiful ride on zurich lake with a few stops along the way. dropped us off near Bahnhofstrasse, which is one of the most expensive streets in the world. wear good walking shoes and take lots of $$ as zurich is not inexpensive.

The tour started on a low note when the tour operator lied to us and dismissed our request for special seating due to motion sickness. But, the bus tour through Zurich, followed by the boat ride back was beautiful and relaxing. It’s a very nice way of seeing Zurich and the surrounding areas.

Great tour through the most important places of Zürich city by touringcar with airco and ship on the lake. The bus driver (mr Heiblom?) is very friendy, a good driver in the narrow streets and a gentlemen for the other traffic. We felt very safe and comfortable.

The tour comprises of three groups - the 'Great Tour of Zurich' group disembarks at Rapperswill for lunch and rejoins the coach on the way back to Zurich. There is only one stop within Zurich which is at the waterfront (10 mins max). The tour is not very well defined in terms of site visits and what is on offer. Rapperswill is lovely and relaxing. The tour guide was excellent.
