Fantastic tour to the top of Europe! Wonderful views of the alps. It was so well organised even when some circumstances that were beyond the control of the tour company intervened, the guide got us through smoothly and we all had a great day!

This tour was so well worth every penny!! The bus was very new and comfortable - the views out the window were so beautiful! The trip to the top of the alps was just breath taking! Viator was good enough to let us reschedule for a nominal fee when our plane was delayed - all 8 of our party was very appreciative- and they were very nice about it on the phone. i would have hated to miss this tour!!

Totally awesome. The guide was fantastic, the weather was perfect, and the experience was amazing. My little guy left his camera on the train, and the people could not have been more helpful in getting it returned. From top to bottom, the most memorable experience we had on our 5 week journey.

We loved this trip and our guide did a wonderful job. We were there on April 10th 2016 and our guide was a young lady who spoke many languages and was so personable. I wish so much I would have written down her name. The scenery was gorgeous. If you go to Switzerland don't miss this trip. It is worth the price.
