Awesome tour. If you don't have much time in Zurich, this is the perfect way to get a real taste of Switzerland. I would choose this over a city tour any day, plus you get a mini city tour along the way. Beautiful views, great guide, ample time.

The tour was detailed, the guide gave alot of tips and information and driver and stops along the way, where very accessible:)

A mixed opinion for me. Heidland & Rapperswil had some great views and highlights, but sadly we didn't see much in Liechtenstein. Can't say that a 40-minutes long visit just on a single street with tourist shops was worth all the time spent to get there. The guide was mostly great with the expection of one instance where he definitely was not, causing me to keep the distance for the remainder of the trip.
