Hop out for a stroll around Old Town (Altstadt), admiring its quaint houses and squares. Stop to admire the exteriors of St. Peter’s Church, graced by the world’s biggest clockface, and Fraumunster Church, famous for its Marc Chagall stained-glass windows. Next, travel by coach to nearby Meilen to catch a ferry across Lake Zurich.

This was one of the best tours we have ever had! Our tour guide Gallus was amazing! Very informative and spoke perfect English. Highly recommended especially if you are only in Zurich for a couple of days.

So disappointed and embarrassed I talked friends in to going with me. We thought it would be us walking around and actually seeing stuff, English only, ferry ride similar to places in Germany(Heidelberg has a great one) and a cable ride. This tour is actually dual language.

Response from Best-of-Switzerland, Guest Relations Manager at Zurich City Highlights Tour with Felsenegg Cable Car and Ferry Ride
Responded 18 Aug 2020
Dear TravelingtheworldKY, Thank you very much for having taken the time to participate in our extended Zürich city tour and for sharing your experience with us. We are truly sorry to hear that the tour did not live up to your expectations. We can well understand that over time it can be tiring to be exposed to information shared in several languages. However, conducting the tour multilingually is highly appreciated by many our non-English speaking guests. Our tour guides are instructed to share all information in both languages equally and we are sorry to hear that this did not seem to be the case on your tour. While we would have greatly appreciated it if you had addressed your concerns directly on tour, we will certainly follow up your valuable feedback with our tour guides to avoid similar incidents in the future. The aim of the tour is to give our guests a good overview of Zürich and its surroundings in just over four hours. As stated in our tour description, the tour is operated by coach, which allows our guests to see as much as possible in just a short amount of time. After a guided walk through the Old Town of Zürich in which you unfortunately did not participate, the tour continues to Meilen, where you board the ferry across Lake Zürich. It is possible to get off the bus to take pictures, but it is not a sightseeing cruise and is not marketed as such. While the Felsenegg cable car is not to be compared with cable cars in the mountains, it is Zürich’s only cable car offering stunning views of the lake, the town and the snow-capped Alps. Therefore, we believe that it is a nice add-on and contributes to the overall value of the tour although it can be a bit tight with larger groups. The stay at the Felsenegg vantage point is in the middle of the afternoon and therefore not scheduled as a lunch break. Instead, there is enough time for a coffee break or some traditional Swiss sweets or to simply enjoy the breathtaking vistas. With the consent of all guests, our tour guided even extended the total stay on top so that your children had more time to enjoy the playground. All in all, there were more than two hours spent outside the bus rather than the 45 minutes mentioned. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Switzerland and look forward to welcoming you back on our tours on your next trip to Zürich! Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

We were only going to be in Zurich for a day and a half before flying back home in the states. Initially, we had been in Lyon for the Women’s World Cup before spending a few days in Grindelwald. Since we were short on time, we thought the half-day Zurich City Highlights Tour

Dear CPaM68, Thank you very much for having joined our extended city tour after your Women’s World Cup visit in France last summer! It is great to hear that you enjoyed everything from your tour guide to the different stops of the tour. The aim of the tour is to give our guests a good overview of Zürich and its surroundings in just over four hours. While we try to include as many points of interest, it is unfortunately not always possible for us to cater to all individual interests of our guests due to the pre-set schedule. We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful stay in Zürich and hope to welcome you back on our tours on your next trip to Switzerland! Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

Dear OnAir716245, Thank you very much for choosing Best of Switzerland Tours for your tour of Zürich and its surroundings. We are pleased to hear that you were happy with the service provided by our tour guide and the routing of the tour. The annual revisions of our partners are announced and communicated on the website of our sales partners in good time (section “Additional Info” on Viator/Tripadvisor). While we can totally understand your disappointment, we believe we have found an appropriate replacement in the Dolder cogwheel train. In just about 5 minutes, it takes you from the hustle and bustle of the city to a popular recreational area and therefore offers a typical Swiss experience amid nature with stunning views of the lake and the city. We regret to hear that you felt that the tour was not worth your money and hope that you will give us a second chance to convince you of our high quality standards on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours
