Bus Tour Zurich


We are going to Zurich at the end of August and wanted to know if we should buy the bus tour package before (online) or once we get there? And which company would you prefer?

1. Re: Bus Tour Zurich

Do you mean a city bus tour? In this case, it shouldn't be a problem to book it after your arrival here. There is a tourist office right inside the old hall of the main train station which sells tickets for those tours.

Personally I would prefer a walking tour over a bus tour - as long as you aren't physically handicaped. Many attractions in the city are only accessible by pedestrians and can't be visited on a bus tour.

For an overview of the different tour options see this link:

And for an excellent outline of a walking tour see this post by Oller:


Most things to see in Zürich are in the old town, and it is hard for tour buses to get to many parts of that. Plus if you walk, you really have time to appreciate how lovely it is.
