The scenery was spectacular-- the guide was excellent, the lunch break wasdelightful, heidiland and Liechtenstein were a bit of a disappointment but still fu to see in person the landscape depicted in the novel

The tour guide and bus driver were punctual. The tour was well-organized and informative. I hope to do this again next time in Zürich with guests.
