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.

Good guide. Interesting information. River cruise was fine. No information, just a boat ride. Chocolate factory was fun. Our guide never established a leaving time. Several people found themselves at the chocolate factory not knowing how to get back to the start. It was odd. Make sure if you do this that you know when to meet.

We hired a tour in English and they ended up giving it in English and German, which makes the explanation longer and takes time away from your tour, since it does not allow you to move forward. Our guide gave us a tour and let us take the best photos as he took us to places with incredible views, the walking tour seemed boring but the boat tour is super relaxing and the views were the best. Arriving at the chocolate museum I ate more chocolate than I would have imagined, definitely delicious, at the end there is a shop where you can buy chocolates that you will not find in your country or limited editions.

The tour guide is excellent and gives a nice overview of all the places we visited, he even helped us to come back via train/ tram. The tour itself is quite thorough and almost takes up entire day. The boat ride followed by the Lindt chocolate museum is the highlight of the tour and the cherry on the cake is the unlimited chocolate tasting.
