Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach in central Zurich and embark on a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Receive a historical introduction to Zurich from your guide and direct your attention to landmarks such as the Swiss National Museum and the Zurich Opera House. Look out at Lake Zurich during a brief interlude, and then cruise past monuments like the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Zurich’s art museum.

Disembark for a leisurely stroll around Zurich’s charming Old Town (Altstadt), and admire quaint houses and grand political centers. Capture photographs of the world’s largest clock face on St Peter’s Church, and gaze at the prismatic stained glass windows that decorate Fraumünster Church. 

Reboard your coach for the short and scenic journey to Meilen, where a sightseeing ferry awaits. Enjoy a tranquil crossing of the lake, and then board a cable car on arrival in Adliswil. Ascend to a dizzying height of 2,630 feet (800 meters) and absorb sweeping vistas of the snow-capped spires that surround.

When your tour comes to a conclusion, return to your original Zurich departure point in a comfortable coach.

It was a good tour. The guide was amazing and witty, Konrad kept an extremely good atmosphere with the tourists. However wished that we could’ve stayed at some spots more, but sometimes we did have to hurry. Other than that I loved it!

We got of at the second stop and did not get back on. We were in the back of the bus and the people in front of us were eating lunches they packed (we were told food was not permitted on the bus) and stinking tbe bus up. They were also talking the whole time so we could not hear anything.

Dear Luc, Thank you very much for participating in our extended city tour of Zurich and for sharing your experience with us. We are truly sorry to hear that you and your family left the tour early because of your unpleasant co-travelers. While we cannot expect good manners from everyone, we do believe that is it the tour guide's duty to point out the rules of conduct and to ensure that they are followed for the benefit of all concerned. To avoid similar incidents in the future, we have followed up on your feedback with your tour guide. He would have very much appreciated your feedback on site so that he could have offered you a different solution while still on tour. As this is not possible anymore, we have now reached out to you via e-mail to offer you a small gesture of compensation. We hope that you will give us a second chance to convince you of our high-quality standards and are always happy to help in case of any questions. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours
