What people are saying about Eastern Switzerland

The full day tour to Heidiland and Lichtenstein was very scenic and enjoyable. It started with a short City tour of zurich and then to Heidiland with a stop at a place where there were beautiful rose gardens. Our driver Willy took the coach thru small villages and it was a beautiful scenic drive. Heidiland is a small cute village with some interesting stories about Heidi. The capital Vaduz of Lichtenstein was also good. Our tour guide Michael made our journey more enjoyable with all the information. He was very friendly and caring. Overall it was a great day tour.

The driver Willi and the gentleman who was our tour guide were just great! So nice, so sweet, so likeable! It was such a beautiful day. We had plenty of time to see the city everywhere. At Heidiland I would have liked 30 minutes more time. But overall everything was perfect. Is really recommended!

Short and sweep trip - Monika is a great guide. Rhine Falls is a pretty sight - recommend to take the boat ride.
