It was a good tour in villages around Zurich.the tour was beginning with a city driving in Zurich, the guide introduced some famous places in the city then we went to town with church and rose garden for lunch. Haidiland is a very typical Swiss village. As for Liechtenstein, it was a good place to buy watches, I planned to buy dozens of watches there but it was Sunday. So I missed that chance. If you want to shopping there, please do it on other days

This day trip was beautiful - filled with breathtaking countryside scenary and an amazing and knowledgeable tour guide, Walter. At the end of the tour, Walter even took some time to show us a restaurant where we had some of Switzerland's famous cheese fondue! Martin was also a very good bus drive and made sure we got to all locations safely. Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting Zurich.

Ok I’ll start off by saying I would maybe recommend this tour to seniors and maybe families with younger children. In all honesty I don’t recommend the tour to everyone in between. I’m giving the tour 3 stars because the driver was a delight and the bus was clean and modern. There were two different tours on our bus at first so we had to sit through a pretty long city tour and what’s the use in that? Can’t really take good pictures through bus windows and most of us had already been in Zurich a couple of days. The drive was pretty scenic and Rapperswil & Heidiland were ok. I hesitate to judge it harshly because well…it’s my own taste. I really was only looking forward to Liechtenstein. BUT…..we only had 30 minutes in Liechtenstein. So basically enough time to shop at the gift shop and get passports stamped. No time to venture out of Vaduz. They should cut time off of Rapperswil and Heidiland to extend Liechtenstein.

Walter the guide was a sweetie. The stop at the bottom of Lake Zurich was interesting, but the Heidiland 'experience' was rather pathetic. Enjoyed the ride across to Leitchenstein was pleasant.

Would have preferred less time in Heidiland and more in the Principality.

We booked the tour several months ago. Two days before our tour, they charged my credit card. One day before our tour, they cancelled. They blamed Covid of course and said that they only offered this tour twice a week. I understand and have no problem that they needed to limit their tours due to demand not Covid. I don’t understand why they would charge our credit card and leave us high and dry one day before. Not being discouraged, we took a train to Sargans and a bus to Vaduz to accomplish our goal.

Dear guest we understand that this situation was more than unpleasant, still we would like to clarify that our partner VIATOR offers that clients can book a tour but need not to make the payment at time of booking rather a few days prior to tour date. We as operator do not know if a client has taken advantage of this offer to pay later. It was not the mistake of Viator who charged you for the tour it was rather the unpleasant situation that we had to inform you that the tour will not take place. We wish to apologize for the inconvenience this caused to you but are glad that you took our advice to visit Vaduz individually by public transportation. We still hope for a chance to welcome you to our tours, next time when you visit Zurich. Best regards / Madeleine

quick tour through Zürich, then a stop in historic Rapperswil for a short tour and lunch, on to Liechtenstein, finally Heidiland. Knew nothing of the Heidi story before going on this trip, and the guide gave enough background to put everything easily into context. Was a pretty neat place, even without growing up hearing the story.
Each stop lasted about an hour. Hit heavy traffic heading back into Zürich, and the driver handled it like a champ.

Tour started on time, great care taken with health precautions.
The bus use was not full, so distance was kept in sitting.
Same seat had to be kept throughout the trip.
We started in Zurich, did some drive near the Cathedral.
After which we went to Rapperswil.
There we spent some time near the church and Rose garden. The tour guide recommended restaurant for lunch.
After lunch, we continued the tour to the Alps in the direction of Liechtenstein.
In Liechtenstein we stopped at Vaduz for about sometime.
After which we went back to Switzerland to Heidiland.
After Heidiland, we started the journey back to Zurich.
Some traffic on the way back into Zurich. I guess this is usual, because I had read somethinh similar on a previous review.
In all, the tour was well planned and organised. We always sanitised hands when going back onboard. Masks was worn onboard and mandatory.
Tour guide was very informative and gave lots of information.

It was a nice tour. At times maybe a bit rushed but this is what happens when quite a few things are covered in one day. Walter is a very knowledgeable guide, enthusiastic about sharing information and historical facts! Overall an enjoyable experience!

We did the tour July 2020 and it was an unforgettable experience. I know I'll go back again. You get a live tour guide and not one of those pre-recorded tours. The pacing was excellent and our tour guide was excellent. The stop in Rappersweil was breathtaking with the view of the lake and the mountain backdrop, and the rose garden was magnificent. The drive through the mountains filled me with ideas. The roads through the mountains are not steep, so you feel like you are on regular flat ground until you look back and behold the height from which you came down. It was nice driving into Liechteinstein and soaking up the views of the city. Heididorf is an adorable place; serene, verdant, inspiring, rejuvenating, exhilarating (bring the kids, they'll love the green space).
I know I'll do this again, and Switzerland in general.
