I enjoyed this tour the most among all my Switzerland tours. The green rolling hills with endless pastors dispersed with red roofed houses, the magnificent overlook from 1800 m mountain top... I can not imagine more beautiful scenery than this. In terms of scenery, this is the most beautiful among all my European tours this summer. Besides, the chocolate from Lindt is delicious and you can save quite some money buying from the shop at the factory, and I even started to like cheese... Other than these, what I liked most is the explanation from the tour guide, a gentleman who also works as a coach of scuba diving in the Caribbeans. Besides introducing the sites we visited, he gave the tourists a bigger picture, including the history and culture of Switzerland, government policy on nature preservation and environment protection, and his unique insights about the social issues there. A good tour guide makes a huge difference. It is absolutely a most memorable tour for me.
Best thing about this tour that is for small group, which makes it easier to move around. Our guide, Aindreas, was very knowledgeable and gave many useful information and interesting background about Switzerland, its culture and towns. Bern is just a beautiful town with lots of character, countryside is breathtaking, Emmental and Kimberley visits were also fun.
Peter was exceptional!! Give this man a raise!! He was well versed in the area, funny and went well above to make our trip 5 stars. As for the sights we visited, each was well worth seeing and we enjoyed our free time in the little town of Appenzell. We are back in the states now and already we miss the mountains.
Andreas, our tour guide, was very informative, kind and caring. He made the trip very interesting. He is an excellent driver, guide, and a really nice person. I enjoyed every minute of the trip. Also he was "very brave" to let me lead the "Bern tour Yodel-oke" portion of the trip. (You'll have to ask him.)
Nice and hassle free trip. Martin- the best tour guide ever. He’s friendly and professional! Recommended! We enjoyed so much !
