Itinerary

Day 1: Geneva — Montreux — Zermatt (D)Start your day with a Geneva city tour, departing from Gare Routiere, the city’s central bus terminal. See where the European seat of the UN is headquartered, stop by City Hall and pause to admire the scenery around Lake Geneva.
Leave Geneva behind for a drive to the lakeside towns of Lausanne and Montreux, and then continue to storybook Chillon Castle for a photo stop.
Venturing through Valais, the valley of the Rhône River, transfer to a cogwheel train in Täsch and ride up to Zermatt, a German-speaking resort town at the foot of Matterhorn mountain, whose striking peak is a symbol of Switzerland.

Dinner and overnight at 4*Hotel Alex or similar

Day 2: Zermatt —Täsch — Lugano (B) The morning is yours to spend as you please. If you’re craving more views, ride the cogwheel train up the snowy Gornergrat mountain (own expense), or simply stroll through town shopping for knickknacks and admiring the charming old farmhouses.
In the afternoon, take the train to Täsch and then board the bus for a ride over the stunning Nufenen Pass. Cross into the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland and arrive in the garden city of Lugano, nestled on Lake Lugano and surrounded by the Lugano Prealps.

Overnight: 4-star Hotel De la Paix or similar in Lugano

Day 3: Lugano — Lake Como — St Moritz (B, D)After your stay in Lugano, it’s time to hit the road for Italy. Take a scenic route across the border and drive along the enchanting villa-lined shores of Lake Como, a famous resort destination (and, incidentally, a celebrity magnet). Then, soak up the Italian charm of Menaggio and Chiavenna in the lovely Breggaglia Valley.
Re-enter Switzerland by way of Castasegna. Hairpin turns bend over Maloja Pass to crystal-blue Lake Sils and Lake Silvaplana, delivering you to the renowned mountain resort town of St Moritz in the late afternoon. Pristinely set amid colossal Alpine summits, St Moritz has hosted two Winter Olympics and is home to one of the most expensive ski resorts in the world.
Explore at your leisure and enjoy dinner with your group in the evening.

Dinner and overnight at 4* Hotel Schweizerhof or similar

Day 4: St Moritz — Vaduz — Zurich (B)Pack up and head out for a morning drive across Julier Pass to Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland which has a settlement history of over 5000 years. Continue an hour north and cross the Liechtenstein border to Vaduz, the capital city. Admire mighty Vaduz Castle, a gorgeous royal palace perched on a forested outcrop overlooking the valley.
Before you can say, “How small is this country?”, you’ll be back in Swiss territory en route to Zurich. Savor views of Switzerland’s countryside farmlands on your afternoon drive through the Toggenburg region, and arrive in central Zurich in the evening, where your tour will end.

Enjoyed our four day tour immensely. Stopped at Zermatt and took the train to the Gornergrat during a spectacularly clear day, visited Lake Lugano for a night, stopped by Lake Como for lunch, spent a night in St. Moritz and ended up in Zurich. The tour guides were great, the coach was empty and the weather cooperated. Would do it again!

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!

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 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.

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.
