Switzerland Travel Tips

Switzerland is the land of opportunities.  There’s the opportunity to sample delicious cuisine.  The opportunity to meet delightful local people.  And, of course, there’s the opportunity to witness some of the world’s most breathtaking alpine scenery.  With the Swiss Alps dominating sixty percent of the country, you’re never far from these majestic skyscrapers. Clean, clear lakes reflect their towering peaks, with the Kleiner Matterhorn lording over them all.  The famed Glacier Express takes travelers through the most mountainous areas. And Lake Geneva offers stunning scenery with its island-bound Chillon Castle. Intrigued? See it all for yourself with our collection of expertly planned Switzerland tours.

Our variety of Switzerland tours offer something for every interest. Amid lush meadows with vast blankets of wildflowers, nature lovers rejoice.  Here, blue lakes blend with clean, orderly cities. In lakeside Zurich city-dwellers will enjoy an array of delicious food and laid-back sightseeing. Shoppers will find paradise at charming boutiques in the resort town of St. Moritz; while adventure seekers ride a cable car to the top of a peak for panoramic views. 

In addition to uncovering all the highlights, our Switzerland tours take you beyond the guidebook to explore the local culture.  Renowned local traditions are exemplified in Swiss timepieces, woodcarving, chocolate and more.  At Fraumunster, for example, Marc Chagall’s stained glass windows take artisan glass to a new level.  It’s no wonder Switzerland is a traveler favorite.  Whichever Switzerland tour you choose, you’ll enjoy expert guides, enriching experiences and VIP access at legendary sites. So what are you waiting for?  See for yourself what this incredible country is all about.
