Your expert for private guided day excursions
We don`t just do tours of the country, we do business as it`s done in Switzerland; with fairness and trust.
No credit card, no prepayment is needed to make a reservation for our day tours with a private guide. You can cancel anytime free of charge if your plans change.
Meet and greet by our private guide at the lobby of your Hotel or Apartment in Zurich or Lucerne - Start your day without any worries.
In Zurich, your private guide can meet you at all Airport Hotels as well.
We travel by bus, tramway or train to the main station where our tour begins.
Travel on comfortable trains
We use the excellent trains of the Swiss Federal Railways for our day tours. This way we can not only offer much lower prices; there are no traffic jams as well that would reduce our time in the mountains significantly and they are comfortable and famously punctual. Last but not least it`s much more Eco-friendly.
Another big benefit for you is that you`ll be able to see the much nicer landscape from the train as out of a mini van which takes the motorway/highway. All the tickets you and your guide needs are already included in the price of our private tours. All trains have on-board facilities
and most have a restaurant or bar service available.
Your private guide - a local born and raised in Switzerland with excellent English skills
You will have a lot of time to spend at the attractions and if you want even more time just tell your guide so. We will do our best to accommodate your wishes. We don`t calculate our rates on an hourly basis; it`s for the full day. With full day we mean the whole day; we can start as early as 6 am and return by midnight - that`s more than fine with us.
For us, the most important goal is that you have a great day out
and not that we return on a fixed scheduled time.
The fee for a full day private guide for our signature tours from Zurich and Lucerne is on average only CHF 200.- which is very low, particularly for Switzerland.
Our signature tour prices are higher as they already include the train fares and mountain rail fares for you and your guide at face value as well. No unwanted surprises, everything is included except your meals and drinks and optional activities as stated on the tour page.
If you already have your train tickets such as Swiss travel pass, Interrail or Eurail pass
just send us an e-mail, and we quote you the exact price
without the tickets for you.
Our private day tours are available to solo travelers without a ridiculous surcharge.
Travel plans can change, we know and honor that according to our fairness policy.
No prepayment is needed for our day tours by train from Zurich, Lucerne or Interlaken.
For custom tours a prepayment is need to cover the cost of the third party services.
Please cancel if possible 3 hours before departure. We never charge money for cancellations.
No tour - no payment.
Weather service - Book us, book fairness.
On a bad weather day, you can see only rain drops from the train windows and the view of the mountains will be next to zero. We check the weather before departure.
If the weather forecast does not look good and/or if main attractions are closed we recommend to cancel and reschedule.
If you still want to go ahead, that`s fine with us. All our tour guides are weather proof.
We don`t want you to leave without having tried some of our famous chocolate or sweets.
That`s why all our private tours include a complimentary sweet surprise.
If you don`t like sweets or want to try something specific
just tell us ahead of the tour, and we get a suitable surprise for you.
