This tour shows you the most interesting sights of Zurich and the nearby area. Start with a guided city tour of Zurich and the commercial center. Then visit a section of the Old Town, Fraumünster Church with its famous Chagall windows, historical Limmatquai, and the university district.

You'll take the Höhenstrasse, which offers spectacular views into the Alps, to Rapperswil, called the 'City of Roses'. The charming town of Rapperswil, situated on the shore of Lake Zurich, offers unique attractions for visitors—the Rose Gardens, the Castle, the deer park on the Lindenhof, and the picturesque Old Town.

Between October and April, you'll enjoy an unescorted 2-hour cruise on Lake Zurich. During winter months, you'll take the scenic route back to Zurich onboard the Gold Coast Express train, which follows the shoreline of the lake.
