Our guide, Luis Fernando Medina Salazar, was exceptional -- very knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and kind. He was very patient with our children (11 years and 10 years) and willing to flex with our preferences. Grindelwald is beautiful -- the Swiss Alps are majestic, and the First area has tons of adventurous activities and beautiful hikes. We loved every moment.

We had a wonderful time with Sibylle and would definitely recommend this tour to others. She was very informative and knowledgeable and we got to take in the sights at our own pace and never felt rushed. We enjoyed many tasty treats along the way and enjoyed learning some of the history and culture that makes Switzerland such a wonderful place.

We had the best guide anyone could ask for! Eric was extremely informative, attentive to all our questions, and very witty. He willingly assisted us in not only making the most of this spectacular tour, but also helped us with our immediate and future transportation needs. Just fabulous in every way!

Great day with assistance of Peter our guide from Lucerne.

Excellent, beauty beyond words. A must in Switzerland!
