Typically Swiss Tours Newsletter Issue 1
Welcome to the first issue of the Typically Swiss Tours Newsletter, designed to bring you all the latest developments from the new Tour Operator based in Luzern, Switzerland.
In May this year the company was founded and the first Tours took place mainly in the Bernese Oberland but also going to Germany and Zurich. Satisfied guests came from primarily the US, but some from Australia and Dubai. Here are a couple of pictures of a few clients on the tours and some of the places we visited, which included Aare and Rosenlaui Gorge, Trümmelbach, Geissbach and Reichenbach Falls, First Mountain, Grindelwald, Isenfluh, Brienz, St. Moritz, Rhinefalls, Stein am Rhein and many more spectacular locations.
So, as you can see, we certainly got around and all my guests bar none had a great day, which was hopefully one of the highlights of their stay in Switzerland. I quote Joe from Philadelphia “We simply want to say thanks Chris for showing us some really cool spots in Switzerland. We visited Switzerland, Amsterdam, Paris and London on our 10 day Europe trip and have to say, our day with you in the Swiss Countryside was our best”, which was a very nice thing to say.
Therefore, I can safely say the first half year of the new company was a success with 14 tours completed since June. Clearly as a new company and brand “Typically Swiss Tours” has a long way to go in a competitive marketplace but the signs are promising and the feedback is very positive.
The winter is a time for developing and marketing the business so that next year can see some healthy bookings coming. So, like all business these days, I have invested into Social Media and Typically Swiss Tours has a presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where pictures from Tours and the beautiful Swiss Landscapes are posted on a regular basis.
Then we have a presence on Trip Advisor and Viatour and then last but not least I have visited over 40 hotels in Luzern, Zürich, Zug, St.Moritz and Interlaken in the hope of attracting more customers. Feedback has been very positive and I hope to have more clients this time next year.
November saw the launch of 3 new “winter products” to the existing range of Tours on offer from Typically Swiss Tours. See below and go to www.typicallyswisstours.com to book or contact Chris on 0041 79 286 0451 or [email protected]
