The almost 2 hour tour will take you through our lovely city, including the shopping and financial centre, the famous Bahnhofstrasse, the most important museums, the University district, a section of the Old Town, the Fraumünster Church, Limmatquai, the stately villas in residential Zurichberg, the recreational areas and views of the Alps from Zurich vantage point on the lake.
