Good coverage but a lot of idle time and chocolate shop is a joke

It was a good coverage of the city from the coach and informative. However, there was a lot of slow waiting around for almost an hour which could have been saved for us to use in the city to shop before the shops close. Also the trip to the Lindt chocolate shop was a waste. Just a shop next to the factory and much more expensive than what we have here in the same shop in UK. You would expect the factory outlet to be cheaper if anything.

Not worth it

Zurich is very small , you can do the tour on your own and the chocolate factory is free to enter. You can also buy a all day transportation pass and includes the boat ride . That's why is not worth it. You can do it all for less money and at your own time

Way too high price, it's very easy they can reduce the tour prices, for this amount I feel not worth. Nothing much to see. Not enough to given to spend in respective locations to get pictures, lot of time wasted in chocolate outlet. Tour heading with Lindt chocolate factory visit, but reality they visited a small outlet with chocolate displayed

This tour was excellent when we took it in 2017. We had a great guide and a small group that continued on the cruise and to the chocolate factory. I'm not sure why Viator and the tour company had us on the list for the same day a year later. The tour company called to see why we were not at the meeting point. Can you make sure there is no cost implications to this mix up?We visited in September 2017 but that is not one of the choices below.
