The moment you step into the gondola, prepare to be mesmerized. The Telfreic whisks you up the mountainside, offering stunning panoramic views of the city, glistening Lake Zurich, and the majestic Swiss Alps. It's truly a sight that will leave you speechless.

The lake stop was enjoyable. the Guide was excellent however speaking in three languages did make it difficult to follow - head sets with prerecorded commentary would have been better. The tour should have been much longer - with walking tour of oldtown 2 hours a lake boat trip of 1 hour+ ( skip the ferry ride once the bus leaves the main part of the city there is not much to see and you would see the lake on a boat trip) Felsenegg was about right for the views but could take the motorways to get there instead of the ferry! It turned out the sum of the parts was less than the whole - it could have been so much better and would have paid more to get a better experience

Found this excursion through Tripadvisor and I highly recommend. Easy to get to the bus depot and our tour guide Elizabeth and driver. Manuel were both wonderful. She delivered The entire tour, and both English and Spanish. Gave really good tips, not only about the city, but about places to go visit and eat, and even where emergency services can be obtained if needed. We had chances to take breaks and plenty of pictures and even get a little snack. The cable car ride was wonderful and once you reach the top The restaurant has awesome views of The city of the Alps and enjoy a glass of wine or have wonderful strudel. It’s a bit of a hike to get back up the hill to the cable car, but not impossible. Do it do it do it! We were only in Zürich for five days, so it was a perfect way to see many beautiful sites!

Good tour very thorough, the guide was nice and he explained everything in English and Spanish. We got lost trying to find the location however they were able to explain to us how to catch up with the tour. The staring location is right across from the central train station, if they explained this in the description it would help a lot.
