My friend and I were able to get a very last minute ticket and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Our guide, Franziska, was great! She was knowledgeable, professional, and funny. She made the tour worthwhile. In addition, the tour was a great way to see the main sights of Zürich. We didn’t do the Lindt Chocolate tour, but I’m sure that would’ve been great as well. Highly recommend this tour!
Good way to see Zurich in a short period of time

The bus ride and river cruise provided us the opportunity to see Zurich. We enjoyed the Lindt Chocolate factory; in addition to sampling all the chocolate we wanted, hearing and reading about the history of chocolate was very educational. Downside: there were 43 tourists; too much for one guide. We were supposed to meet the guide in the lobby at a certain time for the return to the bus station. We never found the guide, so we had to catch the train back to the center of the city. It turned out to be a good experience that otherwise we would not have done.
