I took the zurick tour in this september and i must say it was wonderful. I only stayed in zurich for one day and the tour was te best way to visit. It was a nice tour with a good guide(trudy) that explained very well the town and the history of it.
I do reccomend!

For the equivalent of about $150 Aussie dollars we went via coach from Zurich through a scenic route to Lucerne where we had time to have a bit of A look around. From there we went by cable car 7000 feet to the top of Mount Pilatus (this is not for the faint hearted). We had a couple of hours up there with magnificent views before going down the other side in a cogwheel train. From there we had a tour around a lake on a very large boat back to Lucerne then coach back to Zurich. Our fabulous guide Valerie was full of information and fun. All tickets were included in the cost though food was not. Had a great day

 Best of Switzerland Tours made our visit to Zurich and surround on 9th,10th and 11th Sep 2012 so amusing. Three very interesting private tours in consecutive days were programmed to Lucern and Mount Titlis, Zurich City Tour, and the Rhine Falls and Lake Constance. Mr. Urs our tour guide for the three  days was punctual, professional, yet very kind, pleasant, considerate, helpful, informative and extreemly friendly. From both of us Iyad ,Mahmoud and our families wish Urs and the Best of Switzerland Tours the best of success.

We went on three different tours while we were in Switzerland. Zurich & Surroundings, which was a great start to a vacation...being unfamiliar with everything. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful.
We went on Mt. Pilatus - but I found the guide only guided us to our transportation (it included a bus, train and boat) but didnt tell us any information or give us guidance on where we were.
The last tour we took was Mountains, Cheese & Chocolate and we had a great tour guide (Ernst) who was very helpful, full of information and willing to share it. He was friendly and let you had your space when and then came to collect you after.
I would suggest the company if you were in town.

This was our second trip to Switzerland. We took the small group day trip in the Swiss alps and it was excellent! The trip starts in Zürich but we joined the group from the information point in Lucerne. Mr. Heinz was our guide and he was great. We stopped at various spots in the alps and Mr. Heinz provided all the information and answered any questions we had. We also went to the Aare Gorge (40mins walking) and the ice cave at Rhone Glacier (very very cold) . We had plenty time to look around and click pictures, so it was not one of those 'hurried' trips. Switzerland is a really beautiful and a perfect holiday destination. The only down part was, our pickup in Lucerne was at 11am but we were picked up at 12:30pm, that was a really long wait. However we got to know at the Information Center that the bus was stuck in traffic. However, the weather and the spectacular views made up for all that delay!! We really had a good holiday!!
PS: We traveled in the first week of September and it can be windy up in the mountains. So I would suggest carrying a warm jacket (just in case) and good walking shoes.
