Sample Itinerary

Arrival at Geneva airport. Welcome by your English-speaking accompanying guide. Start of private car services. Y

ou will be exploring Geneva and surroundings. Geneva enjoys one of the loveliest city settings in Europe: with the Rhône to the side, Lake Geneva, and the surrounding Alps. The city is the base for many international organizations, and has excellent restaurants, and plenty of museums. On your way to Montreux don’t miss Yvoire. This is a fortified village with beautifully weather-worn building facades and spires, and has earned Yvoire a place on the official list of ‘The Most Beautiful Villages of France’ (the road from Geneva to Montreux crosses the France / Switzerland border a couple of times). 

You will stay tonight in Montreux, in an area known as the Montreux Riviera. This chic spot in a sheltered bay on Lake Geneva has been drawing artists and romantics for hundreds of years (Lord Byron and Mary Shelley in 19th century; Charlie Chaplin and Freddie Mercury in the 20th). You can see why, wrapped up on a scenic saunter on the flower-fringed promenade that runs from nearby Vevey, with its clutch of museums and, in winter, a lakeside ice rink, through Montreux and round to Chillon Castle. Accommodation in a luxurious palace hotel in Montreux.

Hit the road early with your private driver and make the most of the surrounding countryside. 

The nicest places to see on this route are Gruyeres and Zermatt. Explore a quaint countryside village with a long history and strong link to its world renowned cheese, then head along mountain roads and perhaps along a mountain railway to Zermatt. Views of the Matterhorn are admired from all around the town, and these east and north faces are often climbed by alpinists.  

Arrive late in the afternoon in Interlaken. 

Interlaken has been a tourist destination since the Victorian age. Straddling the glacier-fed Lakes Thun and Brienz and capped by the pearly white peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, Interlaken is the gateway to the high mountains. Accommodation in a gorgeous 4* hotel in Interlaken.

At lunch time you’ll enjoy a gondola ride up to Oeschienensee. A horse carriage awaits you there, bringing you to the mountain lake. Why not glance at the reflection in the lake, sing a song (and hear your echo), but above all, just relax at this peaceful place.

After having a picnic at the mountain hut you’ll walk back to the hill station. Keen for adrenaline? Check out the alpine coaster for the downhill.  In the middle of the afternoon you’ll head back down to the valley with your guide and stop for the last highlight of this tour: the amazing Blue Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland. Hidden in a forest, surrounded by rocks and walls this little charming lake is breathtaking. Walk through the green forest around the lake, go for a small boat ride, or relax at the restaurant.

The tour ends back in Interlaken where you’ll stop for a last photo spot, near the charming Interlaken harbor before your private driver will escort you to your charming hotel. Dinner in a gastronomic and traditional Swiss restaurant.
