Due to rain we toured Como & Lugano but skipped Bellinzona. Violetta was very knowledgeable about both towns & their histories. She was recommended by a friend who used her and I recommend her as well. She’s very pleasant to be with and made our day visiting Como & Lugano (both wonderful towns!!!) a highlight of our trip despite the rain!

The tour was much more than what I expected. The sights are breathtaking with a rich history. There is so much to see and explore. The tour guide, Viola was absolutely excellent, very knowledgeable and kept everything very interesting. I wish I would have had more time to have spent in the castles, which are one of a kind.

This is a best in class tour experience. Our expert tour guide Violetta Geiger does a great preparation, keeps you engaged from the beginning with the right balance of information and allows you to go at your pace, being conscious of time and physical effort. She provides great communication and insights on logistics, places to eat, where to pause to make the most of your tour. Fully recommend for travelers who want to enjoy a long lasting experience. Thanks Violetta!

I have had a pleasure to have such an experienced and knowledgeable guide Violetta during our visit to Switzerland in April 2021. She has made me feel very warm and comfortable with her presence as well as our tour being very interesting and remarkable. She is a real professional with a lot of knowledge about the place and has a passion to what she is doing. Booking a tour with a guide making it unique and allowing you to save precious time during your tour and visit the main attractions with stories only locals can know and tell you. I would definitely recommend to book a tour with Violetta, because that way you will know and see more than you would on your own.
