“Thanks Chris for such a wonderful day. Along with two new friends we made on our trip, you took us to an amazing waterfall, lovely village, the Aareschlucht, and the chocolate factory. We were excited to be taken off the beaten path after days of more structured tours, in large groups, that were part of our river cruise. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that our pictures are part of your gallery! We look forward to a future opportunity to book a tour with you. Thank you!!!”
“Spent a lovely summer`s day with Chris touring the Swiss Countryside. Visited Brienz, went up Rothorn for lunch on a 100 year old steam train and ended with a trip to Giessbach Falls and drinks looking over Lake Brienz which was stunning and simply magnificent. Thanks Chris !”
“My family and I had the pleasure of Chris`s company for a day driving to places we would never have seen - magic mountains, gorgeous gorges, quaint villages, superb views, crystal blue lakes and at the same time, we had loads of fun too and got to know more about Switzerland than we ever imagined. Will definitely be back - thanks Chris !”
“Spent a day touring the Swiss Countryside with Chris in his minivan. We could not have been more pleased. Everything went to plan and we had a great day seeing some beautiful places off the beaten track for sure. Chris Is great company and did his best to ensure we had a great day.”
“We had a lovely couple of days with Chris on tour discovering Switzerland. We visited several interesting places and were amazed how many hidden gems we could visit as the car gave us so much flexibility. Will be back for another tour !”
“Chris is very knowledgable and makes adjustments to his visit. Switzerland is beautiful and has great contrasting scenery. We've visited all seasons which offer different aspects but and I prefer the summer filled with alpine flower meadows and tinkling cow bells. Made me feel like Heidi!”
“Last summer 2018 we experienced an absolutely fantastic tour with Chris to South East Switzerland. We visited the stunning Engadin region with the beautiful Diavolezza mountain as our highlight. Piz Bernina and the glaciers were absolutly fantastic. Chris was the perfect guide. With his knowledge and passion for Switzerland he made the tour extra special. I highly recommend Swiss Tours.”
“Dear Chris, We had 2 wonderful days together with you to explore Switzerland. Norbert and I talked for a long time about the unique impressions of our journey. Thanks to your professional guidance, the history, lifestyle and natural wonders of Switzerland have been brought closer to us. First we drove around the “Vierwaldstätter See"; and stayed at an enchanting park with a nice bathing place. It was sunny and so we also had an excellent view a few hours later at the „Stanzer Horn,"; where we got up on the cable car. The restaurant there is really very recommendable. The next day you showed us the very old still operated “Rothornbahn";, which winds up to the “Brienzer Horn";. This steam-powered rack railway in Interlaken is a must experience. Full of impressions from the high mountain world we drove, arrived below, around the “Brienzer See"; to the “Giessbach Wasserfall";. We walked directly under the waterfall and were able to see and hear the sound of the force of nature for a long time to come. In a venerable hotel, “Giessbachhotel";, we tried Swiss dishes. A wonderful ambience with delicious food and drinks. Our short trip through Switzerland was very intense and invigorating and we thank you, dear Chris, for the time together. We want to see more! 🙂 Norbert Hermann-Keller, Susan Hermann”
“My Wife and I took a little European Vacation with some friends in the fall 2018. First stop was a 3 day stint in Switzerland, where we spent the first two nights in the beautiful city of Luzerne followed by a night in Interlaken where we met up with Chris. We had many highlights over our 10 day trip, the Golden Round Trip in Luzerne, private walking tour of Amsterdam, Segway tour of Paris and finally a trip to Wembley to see our hometown Superbowl Campion Eagles play (catalyst for our trip). We were asked many times what our favorite part of the trip was and while it's really hard to pick just one, every time we came back to the 8 hours we spent with Chris touring the Bernese Obland. Chris was excellent, very courteous, took us to all the top spots around the area in his comfortable Mercedes van. He was such a pleasure to hang out with while taking in all the beautiful scenery, he let us do the trip at our own pace and pick any place we wanted to go... which we left entirely up to him and he didn't disappoint. Our favorite stop was lunch at Grandhotel Giessbach overlooking the georgous turquoise blue waters of Lake Brienz with the awesome Giessbach Falls in the background. I'm not sure when we'll get back to Switzerland but when we do a tour with Chris will definately be the first thing on our agenda. Thanks for the memories Chris!”
“Typically Swiss was recommended to me by a friend and cannot praise Chris highly enough. His professionalism, friendliness and knowledge of Lucerne and surrounds, best places to visit and suggestions of things to do, made this trip very memorable and one I can't wait to do again. Travelling solo can sometimes be daunting, but I felt comfortable and relaxed at all times and made a friend for life.... like I said Chris "I'll be back". I wish you everything of the very best for your continued success.”
