Full description

Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and enjoy a scenic drive through the Zürichberg district with views of the city, the lake, and the Alps. 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. Ride the trolleybus and tramway to get familiar with Zurich's public transportation system. While your tour ends here, your 24-hour ticket allows you to continue exploring the town like a local and make use of public transportation.

It was a nice day tour. Convenient if you are visiting Zurich for only a couple of days. The chocolate tour was sublime, there were many chocolate tasting stations (chocolate fountains, bars..etc). All in all the tour was good, but could have been better if the guide was more fun or interactive in some ways.

Patrick told a lot about the buildings and history of Zurich. The photo stops were good. Just enough time to eat on the ship. The chocolate tour is done with the audio guide. The associated public transport ticket is valid for 24 hours! You could drive the photo stops (or to the zoo) again the next morning.

meeting point was easy to locate, our guide was the most sweetest person and she explained everything in detail. she even made sure we had no questions regarding the things she told us about. amazing bus ride, with great detail of the city and its places. lindt factory was amazing too. our guide gave us the choice of either coming back with her or using our 24-hour public transportation ticket which was given to us at the start of the tour. it was an amazing experience and worth every penny.
