This activity will end right where it started.
Greet your expert guide at a central Zurich location and climb aboard an air-conditioned coach for a panoramic tour of Zurich, a city considered Switzerland’s cultural capital. Admire the rich architectural array and hear tales of Zurich’s prosperous past before travelling the Rapperswil, a charming medieval town known as the ‘City of Roses’. 

On arrival, marvel at the towering turrets of the medieval castle and then enjoy some leisurely free time to explore independently. Return to your vehicle and capture panoramic photographs of the Alps as you cross the Ricken Pass and arrive in Toggenberg, a gorgeous region replete with swooping valleys and beautiful mountain scenery. 

Next, cross the border to Vaduz, capital of the minute Principality of Liechtenstein, and spend more leisurely free time discovering the charm of the city. Visit the Post Office to catch a glimpse of its highly prized stamps and then return to the coach for the short journey to Maienfield, the stunning setting of the Heidi stories. 

Take a pleasant stroll to a collection of mountain houses and absorb incredible views of the surrounding mountains. Opt to visit the Heidi House at your own expense and then gaze at the picturesque banks of Lake Walen as you travel back to Zurich by coach. 

Please note: In wintertime, visit the quaint village of Werdenberg instead of Maienfeld.

Amazing trip

Amazing trip. Lichtenstein was lovely, so was Heidi land. Anna is a fantastic guide and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We visited Rapperswil, Lichtenstein and Heidi land in this trip and we had sufficient time in all three places. Just one suggestion, requesting for donation on the loudspeaker in the bus is not nice.

Fantastic tour! Our guide Barb was so knowledgeable and friendly. It was a small group and she got to know us individually and finished the day by helping us plan out our next activities in the city. This tour is by far the best tour we had in Zurich.

Lovely tour guide and driver. The weather wasn't great but we still really enjoyed it. Would have liked a bit more time at each stop so that we could explore the places properly.

Dear Carla, thanks for your kind review, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the Heidiland Tour. It is a positive sign when you would have loved to stay longer at the stops but we the tour has to follow a certain schedule and this tour has several stopps which varies between 40 to 90 minutes each. Maybe you have to consider to join us again on Heidiland Tour, we would be pleased to welcome you again.

Loved it! Great guide and driver!!! Only thing I would change is to make more time in beautiful Liechtenstein.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you for your 5-star rating. The Heidiland Tour includes several highlights 'Vaduz' in the principality of Liechtenstein is just one of them. We regret that the stay could not be extended, as this would mean that another stop would have to be shortened. Hope for your understanding again thanks a lot.
