We had a great experience with Chris. Communication ahead of our day was excellent. He tailored our activities to our interests and the weather and was very flexible. We ended up spending much of the day at the jungfraujoch which was wonderful. It would have been a shame had we went on a different day with bad weather. Chris let us stay as long or as short a time as we wanted at various places, gave us advance notice as to scheduling for places that had transportation schedules, and took copious pictures even to satisfy the whims of my 17 year old. The private and customized tour experience was great. November is shoulder season so a number of things were closed but we still had a great time. Particularly if you are short of time or don’t want to travel in a group, this is an excellent choice. Would highly recommend

Our customized Bernese Oberland tour with Chris from Typically Swiss Tours was absolutely our BEST DAY in Switzerland. The places Chris took us far overdelivered in every single way. The walk through the gorge, the fabulous lunch location, the epic chocolate factory tour - and Chris himself is MADE guiding people to have memorable, educational, relaxing experiences. He's funny, kind, thoughtful and very informative. He was incredible with my 2 year old Stella - and she still recalls "Mr. Chris" from time to time - and the gummy bears he introduce her to - which she had never had, but so enjoyed as a special treat. We cannot recommend this tour and this family owned company enough.

Chris and his company are the most warmest and gentle tour guides we have ever met. They took us to beautiful spots in Switzerland, took us pictures, explained us and took care of every single detail to make our day tour unforgettable. Highly recommended!!!! 10/10

Our first communication with Chris was about a contest in his TST newsletter. We actually won a Freddie tour and entry to Chillon Castle, both in Montreux. In the year before our trip, we had many emails, iMessages, and even video chats with Chris. He really wanted to get to know us in order to personalize our tour days for our greatest enjoyment. WOW! They were all fantastic! He picked us up from the airport in Zurich and we toured all day, starting with Rheinfall, and then checked in at our home base hotel in Luzern. Jet lag? Not a problem! We had a total of four days with Chris. He was careful not to include things we could easily do on our own (like Pilatus), and showed us more sights than we could have imagined! Awesome places of great natural beauty along with chocolate, cheese, cookies, and history were all part of our itinerary. And we even got to zip line for our first time ever! Chris was also super helpful with the rest of our planning for our time in Switzerland. He helped us to understand the Swiss railroad system (buying tickets and actually getting from place to place) as well as helping us figure out how to organize our time there. He is funny, personable, knowledgeable, trustworthy, a great driver, and filled with enthusiasm that we got totally swept up in! If, someday, we get the chance to return to Switzerland, we will contact Chris immediately!

Our experience with Chris (personal guide/driver) started in Luzern with a full day of touring on the way to Interlaken. We made a stop at Lungern Lake, walked through Aare Gorge (Aareschlucht), visited the town of Brienz (wood carvers), cruised across Lake Brienz on a steam paddleboat (MS Loetschberg) to meet our guide at Giessbach Hotel for lunch. Hiked up to a beautiful waterfall. On to Isenfluh and a cable car ride to Sulwald Stubli a small mountain restaurant with amazing views of Eiger, Monch & Jungfrau. Our second day with Chris started in Interlaken with a full day of touring on the way to Montreux. First stop was Lauterbrunnen with stunning and picturesque views. On to the city of Gruyere and our first fondue for lunch! We then visited a Gruyere cheese and Cailler chocolate factory, respectively. The cheese and Swiss chocolates were delicious. If you are looking for a Switzerland guide/driver look no more! We highly recommend Chris Wilson. Prior to our travel, Chris setup a zoom call to listen thoughtfully to our requests and presented an oral outline of what he would plan out with flexibility due to inclement weather. He is a great driver, patient, knowledgeable, with a pleasant and funny personality.
