Extraordinary experience from the time our guide picked us up at our hotel until the time we returned. Going through the Swiss Alps was a magical moment. Such a reminder of the glory of creation. Our guide Ray was extraordinary. Very knowledgeable and he managed our group of 6 with ease. Even though some in our group had physical limitations, Ray helped us through all of the train connections. We would definitely trust Ray with Any tours we hope to take in the future.
