This 4 day tour covered some of the most beautiful areas that I have seen in my life. There was a good variety of activities and interests done at a well timed and planned pace. The hotels were all charming and lovely and our guide and driver both top notch. A perfect tour if you have limited time to see some of the best of southern Switzerland, with the bonus of dipping into Italy included.
The bus tour from Geneva to Zurich was a nice and amazing experience through the Swiss Alps we started it on July 20 with my wife and my 17-year son, we enjoyed four spectacular days. We thought that our son was to be bored on a tour of adults, but the guide did everything possible for him and for another American teenager girl to enjoy to the fullest. On our tour were only 11 people and we ride all the time in the same clean new bus for more than 30 passengers then, the road journeys were fully comfortable.
The tour is designed to maximize time and visit many attractions, but also allows people to know and enjoy many cities without the pressure of having to get up early in the morning or arrive late at night at the hotels.
The driver was quite polite and Philippe the multilingual guide English, Spanish, French, German and Italian is unique in its kind and he has exceptional kindness its amazing that Philippe has in-depth knowledge of the roads, routes, small towns, cities, places of interest, historical sites, shops, restaurants, buildings, etc., all the way. During the four days he didnt stop telling us about history, geography, fun facts and anecdotes of local people, famous people who were born, businesses and a lot of general interest information and facts. During the four days we had no time to get bored ten points for Philippe!
On behalf the breakfasts, lunches and dinners included in the tour almost all, excellent restaurants, great atmosphere and fine food hotels in Zermatt close to Matterhorn mountain, Lugano and St. Moritz had five stars and the best available location.
In short, there isnt any complaint is the best boutique tour through Swiss Alps to recommend for couples, groups and families, while we are thinking about do it again the next summer with the rest of our children.
When I booked this tour, I was a little concerned that it was somewhat short - and a bit expensive. But, I was very happy to find that it felt much longer and was a wonderful way to become immersed in the beauty of Switzerland. The hotels were wonderful, but the best part - the part I hoped to experience - the scenery - was sublime.
Beyond that, though, our guide, Walter, was a major highlight for me. Definitely a gentleman from the old school. Kind, solicitous, with a real concern for those he is leading. He looked after us all - without exception - making sure we were all happy and seen to. He obviously loves his job and his country and shared a great deal of information about Swiss culture and history and some fascinating stories. A real gem!
I heartily recommend this tour.
Our guide Phillip provided very useful informations on the local history, geology, etc. The tour took us to the most picturesque areas in Alps. The hotels we stayed were also great.
Relaxing,informative and very enjoyable. Phillip our guide was great and had lots of interesting things to tell us about. It was some of the most picturesque areas we had seen so far on our Europe adventure.
See my previously submitted review.
This tour is a fantastic way to see parts of Switzerland you probably wouldn't otherwise. Definitely have to be a certain type of traveler to enjoy this tour though - the luxury hotels are awesome, but be sure you enjoy being on the road, too! Which you should, the twists and turns are INCREDIBLE. Our tour guide, Phillip, was very knowledgeable, spoke multiple languages, and funny. You usually arrive at each overnight destination by 5 or 6 pm, and don't leave until 10 or 11 am the next day, so there is still time to do some wandering around or lounging. Some people didn't like the Liechtenstein part too much - yes, there's not much to see or do there, but it's only an hour stop, and I think it's worth going just to say you've been to the 4th smallest country in the world! All in all, had a great time, would recommend.
excellent itinerary greatly enhanced by Phillip, the Swiss tour guide - well worth!
Here I can say that this tour of 4 days from Geneva to Zurich via Zermatt, Lugano, St Moritz, Davos - was very much pleasant journey, very well organised, 4-5 stars hotels have been provided.
During the trip we visited Italy twice. In Dogana was raining, but that did not stop us enjoying the town. Also we were in Vaduz where, at the time of arrival, there was some loud event for children where I felt tenderness watching little ones 2-3 years of age, who was competing each other in running faster.
Guide of our tour Fillip-was acting in a very good manner and been attentive to everyone. And he was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information.
Overall pleasure - was amazing.
Oh...I did not mentioned of the nature... Incredible picturesque...Switzerland is the best country...
