Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bus Station, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland

Check in for your tour at the bus terminal Sihlquai and board the coach.
The journey begins with a round trip along the most important sights of Zurich.

Stop At: Rapperswil Rose Gardens, Fischmarktplatz 1, Rapperswil 8640 Switzerland

Along lake Zurich you will then travel to Rapperswil and visit the castle with its rose garden and the deer park. You will also have some time at leisure to stroll through the picturesque Old Town.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Vaduz, Vaduz

In Vaduz, the capital of the tiny Principality of Liechtenstein you will have more time at leisure. A visit to the Post Office is recommended; the famous stamps from this tiny state are coveted worldwide by philatelists and amateur stamp lovers alike.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Heididorf, Oberdoerfligasse Parkplatz: Bovelweg 16, Maienfeld, Maienfeld 7304 Switzerland

After a drive through the Rhine Valley we finally arrive at Maienfeld, the setting for the Heidi stories. In the summer months you visit Heidi's village. A pleasant short walk leads to a collection of typical mountain houses, a village shop, and of course lots of little goats. Entry into the authentic Heidi House is optional.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Zurich, Zurich

A beautiful trip back to Zurich along the banks of Lake Walen, guarded over majestically by the Churfirsten mountain range brings to a close this most nostalgic of Swiss tours.

Stop At: Werdenberg, Werdenberg, Canton of St. Gallen

Please note - in wintertime, you'll visit the quaint Swiss village of Werdenberg instead of Heidi's village.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: Ricken Pass, 8726 Gommiswald, Switzerland

Then after crossing the Ricken Pass with its panoramic views of the Alps we reach the lovely Toggenburg region whose pretty hill and valley scenery is perfect chocolate box material!

It's a very well spent day. A lot information to take in but our guide Walter is very passionate and friendly. He answers all our questions. Highly recommended trip if you are in Zurich and wants to visit another country.

It was a nice experience and the tour guide was really nice and knowledgeble. Her and the driver were GREAT!! Rapperswil is a nice little town, nice to walk around. Heidiland is not very impressive, but you do get close go the Alps so thats nice. Vaduz has nothing to offer, in my opinion. Not sure why this is part of the tour. Im not sure that this tour is worth your day. If I had the choice I would do a different day trip.

Well, where shall I start. Sadly, not what I thought I was going to get from the tour. Probably not best doing on a Sunday! It was a case of buyer beware; the tour may sound good, but it did not deliver. Very sad as there is a lot of potential. Firstly, Heidiland is a place where you go to see where films were made, and you have to pay to see it. Information was given but hard to hear and follow and everything moved very fast so one could not appreciate the tour as a whole. Places were shut being a Sunday so could not explore more fully. Not everyone is interested where Roger Ferderer is building his house. Recommended place to have lunch was not suitable neither was MacDonalds! Where tourists may be a part of the livelihood sometimes taking a little more interest would help. In Switzerland not everyone speaks English, so it is good to have a smattering of German, Italian, Romanish and any other language to help you out. Lichenstein on a Sunday is closed so did not see much. Was saddened by the day as a whole as it was not a day tour. It could have been a lot better. My pst experiences in Switzerland have been better.

A complete waste. Here is the trip.get on bus drive to heeidiland This is nothing A few wooden houses all closed(off season) but had turnstiles for people to pay to see a wooden houses (about 4) Each had admissions Vaduz Lichtenstein NOTHING highlight f Go to souvenir shop so you can pay 3 francs or euros so they can stamp ur passport. The castle is on mountain overlooking Vaduz but is closed to public anyway.The trip thru Zurich was highlight this is a bank this is an insurance company this is the university ALL NON DESCRIPT BUILDINGS THAT you can find D in any city Nothing but boring routine cookie cutter buildings. The guide was nice and friendly but you can do very little with NOTHING PLEASE AVOID

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER...WALTER IS AMAZING!!! Our tour guide was Walter and our Driver was Mark. They were both so awesome! Mark is such a great driver, he made the drive super smooth, even getting into the tightest roads. Walter is my favorite human on earth. He was sooooo enthusiastic and funny, my husband and I enjoyed him giving us the tour soooo much. Walter gave us so much information and facts in a fun way and made everything so much more fun! I would 100% recommend this tour if you're in Zurich and I hope you get lucky and have Walter as your guide because he made our trip! Heidiland and Liechstenstein were beautiful and Walter provided interesting information about the history along the way and at the locations. This tour was the best part of our trip and we were able to add another country's stamp to our passport.
