    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Zurich, and hop aboard your coach for a highlights tour of the city.

    Pass the castle-like National Museum, the shopping avenue of Bahnhofstrasse, and Zürich's famous financial district, learning about the history of the area from your guide as you go. Enjoy views of Lake Zürich before traveling past the renowned Opera House to the Zürichberg district.

    Then hop aboard a cogwheel train (Dolderbahn) to a scenic viewpoint. Take in panoramic vistas of the city and the Alps before heading to the university quarter.

    There, see the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) and Zürich's Museum of Art, arriving in the charming Old Town. Learn about Zürich's history as you walk through the medieval streets and admire the town hall, St. Peter's Church with Europe's largest clock face, the Grossmünster cathedral, and the Fraumünster church, which showcases stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall.

    Continue to the banks of Lake Zurich and climb aboard a boat for a sightseeing cruise. After taking in the surrounding scenery from the water, enjoy a leisurely walk along the shores to the Lindt Chocolate shop in Kilchberg to sample some of the specialties of the world-famous chocolate factory. Your tour concludes with a coach ride and drop-off back at your original departure point.

    The train from the airport to city take around 8 min. I went to a town called Kusnacht where singer Tina Turner lives. I walk to the gate only. I took the train back to HB Zurich main stop. I walked around everywhere very easy. If you looking for the cheapest food go to Lidi

    A big group tour is not for me. I did not enjoy the structure of the tour. I did enjoy the boat ride and the views following the cogwheel train ride.

    Dear guest, thanks for your review. We are sorry to hear that you did not like our "Zürich with Cruise & Chocolate" city tour. The tour is offered in the summer months and is one of our most popular tours, since our classic city tours is extended with a 1-hour boat cruise and visit of the Lindt Chocolate Shop. Of course each of the tours is a matter of taste, but since the tour is cherished by many others, it encourages us to keep up the work and offer the tour 5 times a week during summer. By the way, if you would be looking for a more personalised experience, we also have specially-dedicated small-group tours with a maximum of 16 participants available. This might be something to consider for a next visit. We hope that you had a wonderful time in Switzerland and remain with best regards!
