This is a wonderful day trip if you want to see the Swiss countryside visit picturesque Alpine villages. Be prepared for a long bus ride, but you will be given a lot of free time in the two towns to either shop, eat, or go up the mountain for activities there. This was our favorite part of our trip to Zurich! Be aware there are multiple different tour groups on the same bus with you (maybe 50-80 people on the bus?). You will be given a colored sticker to indicate which tour group you are in, so make sure to pay attention to the announcements of which tour group is getting on/off the bus.

Awesome place to visit, one should visit this place if he or she is in Switzerland. The company is very professional and run it smoothly. Whole tour went well except the extra time to collect and drop few traveller's from different area which need almost 5 hours during to and fro

Absolutely stunning. Great trip. Great tour guide. Great views. Visibility perfect on the day we went so exceptionally lucky. Very well organised.

It was a great daily tour. If you are interested in beautiful Swiss nature, do not miss it.
