About
If you want to experience all of the outstanding things Zurich has to offer in a single sightseeing outing, this is the tour package for you. Experience the town on this unique city tour with detailed commentaries in one of eleven languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, and Hindi. The air-conditioned Panorama bus takes you on a 100-minute round trip to the sights of Switzerland’s largest city. The route leads across the famous Bahnhofstrasse and the banking center of the lake with a view of the snow-capped mountains, part of the old town with its magnificent guild houses and the churches St. Peter, Grossmünster and Fraumünster. You’ll see the university quarter and the residential area Zürichberg, the National Museum and the Kunsthaus. At the two most scenic viewpoints we will make a short photo stop.

Excellent and Informative
During a short stay in Zurich we took a two hour city tour with headphone commentary (due to the virus there we no tour guides available).
For us, at two hours the tour was just about the right length and the commentary was interesting and informative with a narrative that extended to both the city and national relevance.
A word about the driver - he was friendly and just about the best bus/ coach driver I have ever experienced. He navigated the often narrow streets and turnings superbly and was courteous to other drivers and pedestrians.
Whilst we thought this was quite an expensive tour, (most things in Zurich are quite expensive), we did very much enjoy it and would certainly recommend it.....

Amazing Zurich city tour
Mar 2020 • Solo
I had a6.5 hour layover in Zurich. I decided to try a tour alone that would be short and give me enough time to get back to the airport. The tour was 2 hours, the train ride from the airport to the museum was 12 minutes and easy to find because once you exit the train and make it up the stairs you’re only 2 blocks from the tour bus. No hassle, showed my voucher, bus boarded on time, driver was very nice, headsets were provided, available in several languages, we stopped 3 times and was able to exit the bus for some awesome pictures, excellent history and was able to see the museums, banks, Lindt chocolat, old wineries, opera district, The Alps from afar, etc. I made it back in time enough to grab lunch, make the train and to the gate when my flight had just began boarding. What a unforgettable experience!!

Nice way to get a quick tour of Zurich!
Oct 2019
A nice quick way to get a tour of Zurich! Gives a visitor a nice perspective of where one is vs the entire city. If planning to take other tours in or out of the city, much of what's covered her will be covered in the other tours. So, say you're going on the day long tour to Leichtensin from, Zurich, much of the city tour is an add on benefit and $$ can be saved - only missing a short stopoffnr Lake Zurich which won't amount to missing much.

Expensive two hour tour that took 90 Minutes
Sep 2019
We took city sights and top of Zurich train trip. The city sights took 90 minutes before we were pointed in the direction of where to catch the train to the top of Zurich. During city sights we only stopped twice , for a maximum of 10 minutes as the driver who smelt like an ashtray advised us this was all the time we had. It would have been great to stop at least once more and when we did stop to have more than 10 minutes to stop - we had at least another 30 minutes of the tour left. We were then left to our own devices for the train tour as to what to see and do when we arrived at the top. My tip just take the train trip to the top - it is beautiful to see Zurich, the mountains , the lakes and the paragliders in the air. I would also take another tour operator for city sights that gave you a full 2 hour trip.

Pick Another Tour
Aug 2019
Driver was in a hurry. Gave us two 10-minute breaks which was not enough to visit churches etc. Tour ended in less than 90 minutes and told driver it was too last 2 hours. Driver stated it finished early because there was not much traffic. Nonsense....if he would have given us a few more minutes to see things when we stopped, it would have been a 2-hour tour as advertised. Driver was in too big of hurry to finish.

Other tour companies are available. Would make a different decsion if I had to do it again.

Zürich city tour

Overall it was good bus tour, it covers main highlights and attractions during tour you get off from bus just for 5-10 minutes break. So it not enough for big groups.
