Overall it was an amazing experience. The ride was smooth and we enjoyed the beautiful view. Tour Guides and driver were nice. We enjoyed everything. Switzerland is such a beautiful country. The only issue we had was some people smoked cigarettes prior to getting on the bus and some people had very strong perfume on. The smell was very suffocating. It would be better to have a scent free policy. And don’t smoke prior to going inside the bus. Because it wasn’t a pleasant experience having to smell that during the trip.

Our guide Jorge is wonderful, very respectful and he also told us many interesting things about Switzerland throughout the tour, the entire trip was on time and we had a great experience!! Thank you 😀

Absolutely fantastic!! The best experience ever- the mountains were something else & we loved it. Brilliant tour & highly recommend it. 100%!!!

The guide was very informative. The trip itself was good but due to weather almost all activities were closed. So couldn’t explore everything.

It was excellent .. the tour guide was helpful .. well planned .. covered a lot of places .. recommended
