Our guide Martin was by far the best guide we had in the three days of tours we took with your company. He explained more about Zurich on our drive out and back to the city than any other guide. We also learned about Swiss architecture and village life. He drove happily through the Swiss countryside, giving interesting details here and there, and even played some traditional Swiss music. His Mercedes minibus was clean and comfortable. As for the tour itself, this is a great combination of driving through the beautiful farmlands of Switzerland and seeing some of the smaller towns along the way. The visit to the biscuit factory and the cheese making were an informative bonus loaded with coffee and plenty of free samples. We even got a bag of treats to take home. This tour is lovely.

Very well organized trip. The tour guide was very competent and passed on a lot of background knowledge. The stopovers at Kamply and the cheese dairy in Emmental were very well chosen and were fun and very informative. The city tour in Bern was great and the time for exploring on our own was appropriate. It was a great day.

The wow guide Peter was exceptional. Small van, interesting explanations, no crowd, no rush, small cute presents on the way. He took a country road instead of a highway just to show us the amazing views around and it was worth it! And Bern city is truly beautiful . Had a lovely time.

Monica is a wonderful tour guide. Very knowledgeable and educated. I had a great time in Bern. Thank you

Wonderful private tour from Zurich to Bern. The guide's work was exceptional.
