Tour description provided by Viator

Put a twist on traditional sightseeing in Zurich, and discover the city aboard the Zurich trolley! A vintage replica of an old-style streetcar, the trolley benefits from an open-air rear design that allows you to clearly see the sights. Sit back, listen to audio commentary, and admire the Church of Our Lady (Fraumunster), Limmatquai district, Bahnhofstrasse, hillside villas and soaring Alpine peaks. It’s an experience ideal for those short on time, who want to see the city in a unique way.

Choose a start time to suit your schedule, and hop aboard Zurich’s old-fashioned trolley at the Sihlquai Bus Terminal in central Zurich to begin your tour. The trolley is designed and built like a streetcar from a bygone era, but with all the comforts that today's discerning traveler would expect. Take a window seat, or perhaps sit at the rear to enjoy open-air views. The rear windows can also be closed with a plastic cover in case of rain or cold weather.
While listening to fun facts and entertaining commentary from your audio guide, take in top city attractions including Church of Our Lady (Fraumunster) with its beautiful stained-glass windows, pretty Limmatquai, the university district, Bahnhofstrasse — widely considered one of the world’s most exciting shopping districts — and many of Zurich’s finest museums.
Travel through Munster Square in Zurich Old Town and admire the traditional architecture you find there. Marvel at beautiful hillside villas on the Zurichberg and take in panoramic views of soaring Alpine peaks from your vantage point by the lakeside.
After roughly 1.5-2 hours exploring Zurich by classic trolley, your tour will come to an end at the start point in central Zurich.
