The tour was very good and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He spoke the different languages very well. I enjoyed it. The only negatives was the group was large and it was rushed. The itenerary was good and you saw a lot of Zurich. I would recommend it

Very nice excursion but thought walk to the restaurant at the top might be tough for some. Also, did not like the restaurant’s apple strudel in vanilla sauce - did not taste any vanilla (more like milk) and strudel was floating in the dish, instead of the sauce as a coating on the strudel (it was also very expensive and bland in taste).

We were on a large bus and a couple with a young child were seated behind us. The child was screaming (OK, we understand you can’t always control children). However, when the child started coughing repeatedly, it was clear that he/she was sick. Another set of passengers told the tour guide that they wanted to get off the bus and get a full refund if the child wasn’t quieted down. We informed the tour guide that there was a sick child spreading germs to everyone and she said that the couple would be told that it was not permitted to have a sick child on tour. She checked with the tour office and said one of the parents would be asked to leave with the child. The tour guide verified on her own that the child was sick; however, after the bus was set to depart, the couple was permitted to board the bus. At that point, we chose to complain and request a full refund. We registered a complaint with BEST OF SWITZERLAND TOURS. Still waiting to be granted any refund. Bottom line: the company told our tour guide that a sick child should not be allowed on your and then failed to enforce their decision.
