This tour was excellent when we took it in 2017. We had a great guide and a small group that continued on the cruise and to the chocolate factory. I'm not sure why Viator and the tour company had us on the list for the same day a year later. The tour company called to see why we were not at the meeting point. Can you make sure there is no cost implications to this mix up?We visited in September 2017 but that is not one of the choices below.

This tour was pretty cool, and kind of relaxing being on the waters in Switzerland. There are not many vegetarian options, if you're hungry on the boat, which was disappointing. However, being able to visit the Sprungli Lindt Chocolate Factory was amazing, chocolate galore.

Beautiful tour on my first day in Switzerland. It was in the afternoon after my flight got in, so more than enough time to settle in before getting out and about. The boat tour on Lake Zurich was so relaxing with lovely scenery. And the Lindt Chocolate Store was a big kid's dream! The chocolate is oh so delicious! I highly recommend this tour for those wanting to get around Zurich for a little sight seeing, either on foot, bus and/or boat.

The lake tour was fabulous with a knowledgeable guide. I was expecting to see live chocolate making but had to be satisfied with the outlet.not a disappointment though with various varieties of lindt chocolates
