Liked: Only some sight seeing spots like museums and special chocolates.

Disliked: Very costly to do shopping. Only some sightseeing options are there. Keep this city as optional. Nothing great to see here.

Customer Travel Tip: dont stay in langstars. there is a free walking tour which is really good, i think it starts at the paradaplatz at 11am, freewalk.ch. gross munster church is only 4 swiss to go up the towers, you can rent a bike for free all day near the train station, all you need to leave is your passport, and cycling round the lake is nice.

Liked: zurich is a really nice city, the lake is very beautiful as is the town. i think you could only spend a full 2 or 3 days here though

Disliked: can be assumed but everything is ridiculously expensive. also it seemed like quite a superficual city, everyone was quite pouty, but i think again this can be assumed of a rich city.
