What to expect
  • 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. Return to Zurich after Maienfeld, finishing back at the start point. Please note: In winter, the Maienfeld visit is replaced with Werdenberg.

Poor Customer Service and Communication
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

Great tour and tour guide
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.

Great experience.
Aug 2020
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.

Unforgettable!!
Jul 2019
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.

This is a pleasant, relaxing day out of the city. After a brief tour of Zurich you head out into the beautiful countryside. We knew ahead of time that in the winter this tour does not stop in Heidiland so we weren't disappointed. Walter is an excellent guide, providing lots of interesting information. We started the day with about 16 people but most were on a short, separate tour and returned to Zurich by boat at lunchtime while only five of us continued on to Liechtenstein. It really was a private tour and we're thankful the company went ahead with the trip.

Not too shabby, sir!
Dec 2019
It was a late start at 11-ish am. The tour started with a short round of the Zurich city itself before heading out to Rapperswil. The quaint town was shutdown for the afternoon and we ambled about, walking by the waterside and feeding the ducks. The church was brilliant. Being after Dec25, we didnt get to see any Christmas markets but saw the place prepare for the Ice Hockey championships.Total time spent was 90min.

Next stop was Werdenberg. This was a 90min drive from Rapperswil. Werdenberg is the smallest city in Switzerland. We literally finished the place in a 15min walk.Beautiful place with wooden houses.

Main event of the day: Vaduz, Liechtenstein. This was a stone's throw away from Werdenberg. The stop here was only 45min! We ran around, hunting souveniers, visiting the church and sending postcards. Boy, were we bushed! But it was good.

Since Heidiland was closed for winter, the tour did a drive thru and then stopped at a stone sculpture of the famous character. 15 min and few snaps later, we returned to Zurich (a 1.5HR drive).

Overall, the tour was good. I have some grumblings over how short the time spent at Vaduz was and the long drive was literally silent (guide could have added more flavour here). Yannick, our guide was sufficient. A young lad barely 3 months on the job, he shows great promise. I recommend this tour with no hesitation.
