This was an amazing trip. So much covered in 4 days. The coach, hotels, and meals were all 5 stars. Our tour director Michael was a gem. Full of information and antidotes. Switzerland was picture perfect. By far the most beautiful country in Europe. The Matterhorn was breathtaking.
I loved all of little towns and villages that we saw. They were beautiful and were like a Swiss storybook. The guides were great, good mix of talking and quiet time on the bus. I did not like the little restaurant at the top of the pass and thought that we should have gone down the mountain, but that is not enough to downgrade the tour. All of the rest of the food was great.
This was a trip you will never forget...well-organized, with a superb tour guide in Phillipe. The cities and venue have to be the best of Switzerland. In fact, we found ourselves saying each morning, today can't be better than yesterday, but then, it was. Lugano and the surrounding area was my personal favorite, but the beauty of the regions you see will have you snapping hundreds of photos each day. Not mentioned that much in the other reviews is the food for breakfasts and dinners at the various 4-star hotels - just outstanding. Also, not mentioned, but important to me, was that all 3 hotels either had upscale fitness rooms or access to a fitness facility free of charge in all cases. On the tour itself, there was plenty of time for stopping and strolling - we never felt rushed, but also, never bored either. The other people we met on the tour were awesome maybe our luck, but all very nice people and some, with whom, we have exchanged contact information to become friends and maybe even future travel companions. All in all, it couldn't have gone better. You will see the best of the best and Switzerland is just such a memorable and scenically beautiful country to visit!
This was an amazing trip. Found it online through Viatour. The tour company is Hans Meyer Tours out of Zurich. The places we stopped were perfect. Phil is a great tour guide. He knows his history and is a native of this beautiful country. We saw so much, Geneva, Zermatt, Logano, St Mortiz. The hotels were all amazing. Large rooms, even for US standards. Great food. I highly recommend this tour if you want a four day glimpse into this lovely land.
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.
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...
Thank you to Viator and Meier Tours company.
I enjoyed the itinerary, hotels, tour guide, and bus driver's competence.
The only thing I didn't like was starting at a bus station and ending at a rail station. I flew in and out of Switzerland.The Geneva bus station was a harrowing 40 taxi ride on narrow crowded streets, from my hotel which was near the Airport. Getting to the Zurich Airport from the rail station wasn't an easy journey for a first time to Europe traveler.
So having the option to get on the bus near the Geneva Airport and ending the tour near the Zurich Airport would have been much preferred and a lot less stressful.
Great scenery, comfortable lodging,inadequate guide, great driver and unnecessary stop in Lichtenstein!
We were supposed to be dropped off at the Ramada Inn in Zurich, but instead they dropped us off at the train station and we took a taxi for 50 CHF to the hotel. We were not happy.
