based on 54 reviews

Our guide was excellent! We spent just enough time at the Lindt factory then took a cable car gondola ride up the mountain to eat at this quaint little restaurant which was so much fun. They gave us mulled warm wine and appetizers in the snow. So perfect! We went inside for salad, fondue, and chocolate cake then took the gondola back down the mountain. We did have to sit around 15-30 minutes longer than necessary waiting to leave the restaurant, but otherwise it was 5 stars!

This tour hit the highlights of Zurich in a single evening. We got to see some of the sights, then went to the Lindt Home of Chocolate to shop their store where you could buy your body weight in chocolate (at least it felt like it!) The evening finished with a gondola ride to Felsenegg for a traditional fondue dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful and we had plenty of time to enjoy the meal.

The tour guide was so sweet and wonderful! I would book again and again, just for her! Thanks for a wonderful and informative tour and for making Zürich so great!!

The guide was excellent and helpful. This was our first tour during our trip, he helped us to understand how to get around for the rest of our trip.

Francisca was an amazing guide. She managed the tour really well.
