Full description

Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and enjoy a scenic drive through Zürichberg district with views of the city, the lake and the Alps. You'll see the highlights of Zürich, such as the castle-like National Museum, the shopping avenue of Bahnhofstrasse, and the famous financial district. Stop at the picturesque harbor of Enge and enjoy the beautiful vistas of the crystal-clear Lake Zürich. Continue past the Zürich Opera House and go into the Zürichberg district. Admire numerous mansions that reflect the glorious past, and take in the panoramas of the lake and the snow-covered Alps before going to the university quarter. See buildings such as the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZürich) and the Zürich Museum of Art. Enter the Old Town to learn Zürich's history during an entertaining stroll through the medieval streets. See the patriarchal guild houses, Zürich Town Hall, and Europe's largest clock face on the Romanesque church of St. Peter. See the imposing cathedral of Grossmünster, and look at the Fraumünster church, whose stained-glass windows are by Marc Chagall. Take a 30-minute boat cruise on the pristine waters of Lake Zürich, then stroll along the shore to the newly-opened Lindt Home of Chocolate. See the world’s tallest free-standing chocolate fountain and join an audio-guided tour of the museum, followed by an unlimited chocolate tasting.

Browse the gift shop before returning to Zurich Main Station. You'll ride the trolleybus and tramway to get familiar with Zurich's public transportation system.

First we started with the bus. In between a photo stop at the lake. Then we continued on foot through the old town (left side of the Limmat). Everything important was there, unfortunately a little too short. The right side of the Limmat would also have been worth seeing. Then the ship took 2 stops to Lindt & Sprüngli. Boat trip takes about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, that was a bit too short. But it was very interesting in the museum (Home of Chocolat). With an audio guide through the museum. And then the highlight: try the chocolate ... and return to the starting point by bus. for 5.5 hours a fair price-performance ratio. I would do the chocolate museum separately next time. and therefore extend the boat trip and also increase the "foot" share. But all in all it was good. Our guide Monika was always well informed and was able to answer all questions! Keep it up!

Wonderful tour

Tour is fantastic, the tour guide was wonderful and showed us key places and facts. A good mix of walking and bus trip around the city. Let down is the chocolate, my understanding was we got to visit the factory and see how the chocolate is made with tastings instead we went to a Lindt chocolate shop at the factory with a couple of tastings. Prices were still the same as anywhere else in Zurich.
