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.

Hot in Zurich
Joan_W
, May 2022
Our guide did her best to make this an enjoyable tour but it was an uphill battle. It was unseasonably warm and the motor coach was old, cramped and no airconditionng. It was a sold out tour so we were crammed in like sardines and the body heat was stiffling. To make matters worse the driver was a start and stop kind of guy. Very rough ride and he rode with his window down so what little airconditioning there was couldn't begin to cool the bus. I felt bad for the guide. I wouldn't recommend this tour because the company running the Best of Zurich tour obviously doesn't care to upgrade their coaches and drivers.

The experience at the top...
Julian_P
, May 2022
The experience at the top of the mountain was too rushed. We had 10 mins to enjoy the view and use facilities and/or get something to eat or drink. Didn’t need to drive past university and other unknown places. More time at top of the mountain to take in the views would have been fabulous

Not as advertised

The majority of this tour takes place on a tour bus. It was very hot as the a/c was not working. Nearly all sights pointed out were on the right side of the bus and couldn’t be seen. The ferry ride is less than 10 mins. If you are unable to walk this tour may be for you but I found it a waste of 4 hours.

Wonderful Afternoon Tour
Amy_M
, May 2022
This tour gives a great overview of Zurich and the countryside. We started with a bus tour interspersed with a stop at the lake and a brief walking tour of an historic area of town. Then we took the bus on the "Gold Coast" of the lake to the ferry, for a short ferry ride across the lake. From there, we went to the Felsenegg lookout point, before returning to Zurich. Although I'd done the same tour by myself 10 years ago, it was great to do again with my parents. The views were wonderful and the guide provided a lot of context to the sights. Would recommend and would do again :)

An afternoon in Zurich

The tour touched major highlights of the city and surrounding areas. Very well organized with just enough time at the scheduled stops. Our guide, Annette, was very knowledgeable. The only minor challenge was her German accent for an English speaking tour. An overall very good experience!
