“Spectacular Switzerland”
- SA, Australia May 2019 1 Helpful Vote

This was a very good tour of Switzerland. The pace was good, not too rushed and the tour guide Helen was excellent. The hotels were all very good and well positioned. All the places we stayed were interesting and the scenery was spectacular. One point to note though, Switzerland is quite expensive. Be prepared to pay about 50% more for food and drink than you would pay in Australia.
My only criticism of this tour would be the coach. There were a few seats which...read more

“Beyond Expectations”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2018 9 Helpful Votes

We were aware of Switzerland's reputation for its scenery but it is awesome!

Travelling by both coach and train added another dimension of the engineering marvel of the Swiss railways. Although we had a full complement of 40 people the Tour Director Matt did a great job. Friendly, organised and professional, his communications, advice and directions on times...read more

“A wonderful scenic trip in Switzerland and Italy! ”
- QLD, Australia Aug 2017 8 Helpful Votes

August is a good month to travel in Switzerland. The weather was fine for most of the time although colder in the mountains. Maria Reisterer was an interesting and caring guide which, as a senior solo traveller, I really appreciated. The coach with our skilled driver was quite comfortable. I loved the itinerary with mostly two night stops in carefully chosen locations and three in Montreux. The scenery was magnificent with mountains, lakes and pretty picture postcard towns and villages. Thank...read more
