Informative tour and great tour guide Anje (sorry if the spelling is incorrect) we really enjoyed the cable car to the mountain. We got to see places that we wouldn’t have if we were exploring on our own so was all in all great. Definitely would recommend to others :)

This tour was fabulous. The description doesn’t do it justice. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. In just a few hours you will get a great overview of Zürich and it surrounds. You will have some good ideas of what to spend more time on when you venture forth on your own. I’ve taken many tours and this is one of the best.

Really clear meeting point, friendly staff both in the meeting kiosk and the tour guide. Informative trip including photo stops, a sightseeing trip on the coach, and also a walking tour, and then a 12 minute ferry across the lake (with the coach) and then up to a spectacular viewpoint via a cable car, with time for a light bite. Make sure you tell the waitress you are part of a tour as you have a different menu and order inside (rather than table service) Then you take the coach back to the original meeting point, taking in some more of what Zurich has to offer. Good value for money, and suitable for all ages
