Zurich City and Chocolate


I invite you to experience a few hours of Zürich's rich history and Swiss Chocolate. This 3 hour tour visits some of the highlights of Zürich and the Lindt/ Sprüngli Factory Store. After approximately 90 minutes of touring Zürich we venture along Lake Zürich to the town of Kilchberg ( about 15 minutes by bus). There we will find ourselves on a very scenic part of Lake Zürich. If we follow the smell of chocolate a little more than a hundred meters we will find the Lindt Factory Shop. There you will have some time to visit the shop and if you like buy some edible souvenirs. The chocolate is made next door and the prices are better than you will find in the city. If we have time and you wish we could take a short walk along Lake Zürich.
Afterwards we will return by bus to downtown Zürich. If you prefer we can take a scenic boat ride to the factory store which takes about 25 minutes each way.
