Honestly I'm still in awe after nearly a week since we took this trip. The bus ride and driver and event was fabulous. We certainly recommend people who are not familiar with this city or in fact Switzerland to reach out, get this ticket, and get on the bus. You'll thank me for it.

Tour was informative and interesting. Gave a good overview of Zurich city, and we saw all the main landmarks. Really enjoyed the cruise on the lake! The boat was modern and well maintained. A glass of wine topped it off for a perfectly spent afternoon.

Lisa was wonderful and learned a lot about Zurich!! Also huge thank you for adjusting our time due to train cancellation. Very thankful!
