- Our holiday tour to Austria, Paris and Switzerland was very well organised.
- Overall well planned and executed
- Austria everything was good and all tours well planned.
- Taxis and hop-on-hop-off tours are very reasonably priced in Austria compared to Paris.
- We couldn't locate our driver immediately on arrival at Zurich airport and he left after
wait, but came back promptly as soon as we connected on call.
- Hotel Novotel in Zurich is very nice and comfortable hotel in terms of rooms, breakfast
and services, I wish we were in a hotel next to Zurich railway station, but they must be
very expensive.
- It is easy to move around in Zurich and all other cities of Switzerland with Swiss rail
pass, buses, trams, train schedules are very frequent and with clear directions to use.
- Mount titlis, Jungfraujoch, Lake Lucerne cruise, Rhine falls were excellent and life time
experience.

Dear La Vacanza team thanks for your efforts, we have just returned from our Switzerland and Paris holiday and trip was wonderful. We have came back with lot of fond memories.

Both Switzerland and Paris have their own attractions and highlights.

Best things we liked about Switzerland was
- Swiss travel pass and convenience which comes along with it to move around the whole
country and within the cities.
- Trains are frequent and journeys itself are sightseeing and distances are not much
between cities.
- All the important attractions and old towns in Interlaken, Lucerne and Zurich are next to
train stations, hence it is always a short walk from train stations to important attractions.
- Lake lucerne cruise is a wonderful experience.
- We also liked both the mountain excursions of mount Titlis and Jungfraujoch.


Best things we liked about Paris was
- Skip the line tour of Louvre Museum was nice, in less time we could see the museum
including Mona Lisa painting.
- Tour of Eiffel tower and Seine river cruise was mesmerizing.
- Lido show was good, it finished late but driver was there right in the front of the show to
take us back.
- We simply loved Palace of Versailles tour ( though we couldn't see fountain show )

Airport transfers were also great, drivers were polite always with good new cars ( BMW and Mercs )

Everything was planned perfectly and tour was very good. We both enjoyed a lot and thanks once again to you and your team.
