If you only have a limited amount of time to see Switzerland, I highly recommend this trip. It is well thought out. The guide Philip spoke five languages, and knows pretty much everything about everywhere we went. As he coach traveled through Switzerland he had an ongoing presentation about every location we were passing. Zermatt, Lake Lugano, St. Moritz were the hotel locations and all were truly outstanding. We were fortunate that the view of the Matterhorn was as clear as could be on the day we were there. Have a day in Geneva on the front end, as the time to visit Geneva itself on the first day is only a couple of hours. The trip ended in Zurich at the train station. We stayed in a hotel near the train station and then took a very early train to Salzburg. Very affordable train that took about 5 hours through beautiful countryside. Get the business class seats for a very modest upgrade in price.
Our tour guide, Philippe, was quite excellent! His stories were interesting, he gave us a lot of information while we were on the road, and he always made sure we were well accommodated (both of us who were traveling in my party are vegan and he took that into account for the meals included in the tour).
Most of the stops from Geneva to Zurich were beautiful towns/cities that were great places to grab a mea/snack and wander around. The two exceptions to this were probably St. Moritz (it was a bit cloudy and cool, and not much to do in the summer other than walk around the lake or window shop) and Liechtenstein (it was cool to get the souvenir passport stamp, but other than that it was basically just a street of expensive shops)
The lodging was always excellent, very comfortable, and our luggage was always delivered to our hotel rooms and loaded back onto the bus for us, which made it extremely convenient!
Overall, I think it's a great way to experience many different aspects of Switzerland in just a few days!
An excellent way to see the hi-lites of Switzerland in 4 days.
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 tour was amazing!
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.
