What people are saying about Central Switzerland

Trip was busy but well ogranised - recommend arriving early for the coach as it was full so you may not be seated together if you are a group/family. Travel to destinations was quick and scenery on way and while there was stunning! Guide was very good at explaining various sites on the way.

Excellent tour. Everything went right on time and there was a good amount of time to enjoy each location. Good combination of guided and time on your own. Having the whole package of transportation plus all the tickets made it so convenient. The bus trip there was very comfortable.

A beautiful experience! I loved everything from start to finish!! I would repeat myself without thinking, both the guide and the driver very cordial and attentive to each of the tourists who were on the excursion.

The trip was very well organised, our guide was excellent, and the overall experience was excellent. The weather was also on our side, and the views during the day were breathtaking.

We loved it, keeping in mind that it is always cold at the top so dress warmly and wear appropriate shoes. We went in the spring (May 7, 2022) and we had to rent shoes.
