1 Zurich – St Gallen – Vaduz – Chur
This morning we’ll meet the group in one of the most impressive cities in the world: Zurich. Then, it’s all aboard the mini-coach as we make tracks to Schaffhauser Blauburgunderland, where we have a wine tasting and private tour to look forward to. We’ll then make stops at St Gallen, where we’ll visit the old library, and Vaduz before we reach Chur, our final destination of the day. Tonight, we’ll get to know each other a little better over a welcome dinner. (D) 
2 Chur
After a hearty breakfast we’ll launch into a walking tour of vibrant Chur, ticking off the likes of the Bishop’s Palace, the car-free old town and the 13th-century Cathedral of the Assumption. The rest of the day will be yours to enjoy at your own pace in one of Switzerland's oldest cities. (B)   
3 Chur – Lucerne – Weggis
A day of indulgence awaits us in Lucerne today, where we have an appointment to keep with a local chocolatier. After learning the secrets behind Swiss chocolate making, we’ll take the time to savour a delicious sample (or two). Later we’ll swap our mini-coach for a scenic boat ride across Lake Lucerne, setting ashore in Weggis, our base for the next two nights. (B/D) 
4 Weggis – Einsiedeln – Mount Rigi – Weggis
After breakfast, there’s a cheese fondue tasting at a local farm in Einsiedeln to look forward to. Then, we’ll board the cog railway – Europe’s first ever mountain line – and scale the towering Mt Rigi, taking in some magnificent views of deep blue lakes and snow-capped peaks along the way. Afterwards, we’ll make our way back down to Weggis, where you’ll have the evening to yourself. (B/L) 
5 Weggis – Eggiwil – Bern
Today we’ll leave Weggis behind us and make tracks to Eggiwil. Here, we’ll meet a local alphorn maker, who’ll reveal how the traditional instrument is made. Bern is next! With a guided walking tour and beer tasting on the agenda, there will be plenty of time for you to soak up the picture-perfect scenery. (B/D)
6 Bern
Today, the day will be yours to visit the city’s excellent museums and wander the cobbled centre at your leisure. (B) 
7 Bern – Thun – Interlaken – Wengen
Today our path will carry us away from Bern and onwards towards the striking Thun Castle. After we’ve had a look around, we’ll continue to the Trümmelbach Falls. After splashing through the falls, we’ll reach new heights on a cable car ride to Wengen, where we’ll rest for the next two nights. (B) 
8 Wengen – Jungfraujoch – Wengen
Today we’ll be treated to some intoxicatingly beautiful vistas as we travel to the top of Mt Jungfrau aboard the Jungfrau Railway. After travelling back down to Wengen, we’ll feast on our last dinner together. (B/D) 
9 Wengen – Affoltern Im Emmental – Zurich
After bidding a fond farewell to Wengen, we’ll board the mini-coach to Affoltern im Emmental, where we’ll enjoy a cheese tasting session at a local Emmental factory. Then it’s onwards to Zurich, where our adventure will end. (B)
