Our guide was fantastic. Knew every good photo op and made the trip fun. Long day for children as evidenced by the whining 7 year old on the trip

Kid was an excellent guide and made sure we did not miss any part of our experience. He had us ready for every photo opportunity! We did the tour with three children and they were included in every experience so it was a great day for them also. I do not think the day could have been any better!

Breathtaking views, this is a trip I will reminisce on for years to come. Extremely accommodating for someone in a wheelchair, like myself. If you can walk a few steps or have a friend who can assist you up a couple of steps on and off the bus/train you will have no problem enjoying this tour. Highly recommend this trip for anyone looking to see the mountains of Switzerland.
