A trip beating our expectations

The trip was was well organised and many options were proposed in advance. Sibylle took care of us very well and very attentive to each member of my family. She took us to magical spots at the right timing before it gets crowdy. We had a great balance between exploring the locations, resting and chatting about the region and location. The flow of the day was great with high energy. Each family members was very happy to go on the tour and would love to go again with Sibylle and discover more areas.

Fantastic!!!!!

The tour was great. Our guide Sibylle was extremely helpful. She made us feel at home and the normal Swiss life. I'd recommend Sibi (Sibylle) if you were to come to visit Switzerland. We have covered almost all the iconic places and even small alleys although our trip was just a short period. Sibi is the best!!! We really enjoyed and had a great experience.

We had a wonderful time with Sibylle and would definitely recommend this tour to others. She was very informative and knowledgeable and we got to take in the sights at our own pace and never felt rushed. We enjoyed many tasty treats along the way and enjoyed learning some of the history and culture that makes Switzerland such a wonderful place.

We had the best guide anyone could ask for! Eric was extremely informative, attentive to all our questions, and very witty. He willingly assisted us in not only making the most of this spectacular tour, but also helped us with our immediate and future transportation needs. Just fabulous in every way!

Great day with assistance of Peter our guide from Lucerne.
