Board your coach to start your tour of Zurich, learning about its culture and history as one of Europe’s wealthiest cities. As your guide regales you with stories, you’ll travel onward to Rapperswil, the City of Roses. Admire the striking medieval castle and explore Rapperswil a little at your own pace. You’ll then return to the coach to continue through the Alps that frame the Ricken Pass and Toggenburg. Cross into Liechtenstein, where the pint-sized capital of Vaduz awaits. Admire a collection of Liechtenstein’s lauded stamps and then venture further to Heidiland, aka Maienfeld. Walk to a cluster of chocolate box chalets, as you learn about the Heidi books and soak up the views; you can even visit the Heidi House at your own expense, if you wish.

This tour was a great way to see the beautiful landscape of Switzerland! Super cool to visit Liechtenstein, a country that we would otherwise not have visited if it weren’t for this tour. Our tour guide, Walter, was very knowledgeable, professional, and very sweet. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the iconic Swiss landscape with lakes, learn about the history of Zurich, and visit Liechtenstein! Walter even sat with us during lunch with my husband and me for a lovely conversation in the lovely town of Rapperswil-Jona.

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.

Honestly disappointed.Liechtenstein nothing to see. As all. Heidiland has beautiful views. But that is it. One thing that more or less was interesting is city Rapperswill which I would recommend to visit 100%. Has old history. Amazing views and great food. But test of the tour was no more than two starts. Tour guide Hausrudie was pretty good too.

Thank you for your feedback and thank you for sharing your personal impressions of our "Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour". We regret that the tour did not fully meet your expectations, but are pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit to Rapperswil, the "Rose City" on the upper shores of Lake Zurich. The Principality of Liechtenstein is a small country (160 square kilometers) with an impressive landscape, the high Vorarlberg mountains and the flat agricultural green areas that are part of the Rhine Valley. Of course, the main town of Vaduz has more to offer than just restaurants, souvenir stores and a nice stroll along the main street, but our itinerary includes several highlight destinations, so time must be limited for each visit.

It was a great tour. Seeing the smaller towns in Switzerland was nice. The views were magnificent and picturesque. I was excited about the visit to Lichtenstein (go with your passport so you can have it stamped for about 3 Euros - though it is a real stamp, it is more like a souvenir since the borders are open. Our driver was excellent and patient on the road. Our tour guide provided the right amount of information; I actually remember what he said and his explanations. He was kind and interacted well with the tourists.

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.

Enjoyable trip with very knowledgeable and witty tour guide Walter who gave us all a lot of local insight. The trip covered some lovely countryside and quaint villages, coach driver Mark was really on the ball as some of the roads were very tight. Would recommend if you want a thoroughly good road trip.

Well, where shall I start. Sadly, not what I thought I was going to get from the tour. Probably not best doing on a Sunday! It was a case of buyer beware; the tour may sound good, but it did not deliver. Very sad as there is a lot of potential. Firstly, Heidiland is a place where you go to see where films were made, and you have to pay to see it. Information was given but hard to hear and follow and everything moved very fast so one could not appreciate the tour as a whole. Places were shut being a Sunday so could not explore more fully. Not everyone is interested where Roger Ferderer is building his house. Recommended place to have lunch was not suitable neither was MacDonalds! Where tourists may be a part of the livelihood sometimes taking a little more interest would help. In Switzerland not everyone speaks English, so it is good to have a smattering of German, Italian, Romanish and any other language to help you out.
Lichenstein on a Sunday is closed so did not see much.
Was saddened by the day as a whole as it was not a day tour. It could have been a lot better. My pst experiences in Switzerland have been better.

We truly and thoroughly enjoyed this day trip from Zurich. Armando was our deft and delightful tour bus driver and Walter was our knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. Our tour included interesting information about Zurich, Lake Zurich and Switzerland, and we got to tour two very unique historical places, Heidiland and Lichtenstein. We are on a five-country train trip, and this tour is definitely a memorable highlight of our trip!

Awesome day trip with beautiful views. The tour guide Walter is knowledgeable and friendly, and the pace is good for both siteseeing and relaxing. If you want a comfortable experience outside of Zurich to see some natural beauty without using up your whole day, this is a great trip.
