This is a no-brainer for a trip to Zurich. Do not visit there without looking into this.

Great deal for roundtrip train from airport to Zurich HB. Free boat tour and free entrance to national history museum. Since I used it for a 11 hour layover I didn’t try use it in other zones
Exceptional value in this card - even just for the transportation. Add in the other features and how can you not buy it?????
Helps a lot with getting around the city, from trams, buses and boats. Great value
The guide was great, very know legible, answered all pour questions
