Guide was excellent. Bus driver was also very kind. We enjoyed the tour a lot. Cruise was amazing too.
Great combo bus/boat tour of Zurich
Jim_P, 05-09-2022
Viator’s description is poor. There is a 2.5 hr bus ride before a 1 he cruise. However, the bus makes 3 stops providing a chance to take pics and stretch your legs. The guide was excellent and the boat cruise picturesque.
Good value for a half day tour

Very knowledgeable tour guide. Mini cruise on Lake Zurich promised WiFi on boat, but didn't have it.
