All these tourists had unforgettable travel experience because of our guides from Zurich.
Let them make your dream vacation a reality.
Suzanne: We are a party of 6 able adults (ages 22-61) looking for a 3-4 hour private tour of Zurich. We will be arriving in Zurich (HB rail station) on Friday, October 5 , 2012 via the overnight Cityline #40419 from Amsterdam at 8:34:00. Our time in Zurich is limited (we depart @7:00:00 on Sunday the 7th of October via train for Florence) and none of us have ever visited Zurich or Switzerland for that matter. Ideally then, we would like to start an "overview" tour from the train station (9:00:00 would be fine if that is when your tours normally start) and end it @12:30:00 -13:00:00 (see below for possible bot add-on). I see that you have Sprinter vans. Would we be able to have a large enough Sprinter van to accommodate the 6 of us and our luggage (1 large/x-large suitcase and one rolling carry-on each)? Alternatively, we could squeeze into the normal size sprinter van for 6 people and drop our luggage at the Dolder Hotel, but this would eat into our tour time. I realize that a larger van and the dealing with our luggage would be an extra expense, and that is not a problem. Also, we would also be interested in a private boat ride/tour on Lake Zurich. This could be incorporated or added on to the above, however, we would surely need to drop our luggage at the Dolder if we do this. Are night time private cruises available and/or advisable? Please advise as to your ability to accommodate us and/or any suggestions. Also, pricing alternatives. We would like to limit our total tour time to 5 hours as we have other activities planned at the Hotel Dolder.
Roy: My wife and I would like help in planning a private tour of Switzerland in early June, 2013. We will first be on a group tour of the northern lake region of Italy and will be in Ascona on the last day of the tour (actually, the second to last day, as the group returns to Stressa that evening and everyone departs for home the following morning.) So, we can stay overnight in Ascona or Lucarno, and our Switzerland tour will begin from there. If that would not work, we would stay with the group, return to Stresa, and go to Milan to fly to a destination in Switzerland.
We are both retired and are 70/69 years of age. My wife is not physically mobile enough to include long walks/hikes. Our interests are sightseeing (historical/scenic),culture, cuisine, music, shopping. We would like to explore Lucern, Bern....go to Buchs to visit our brother-in-law's relatives...take a scenic ride on a train (Glacier Express? Bernina Express?)...visit the Interlaken area. Our departure city would be Zurich.
We are thinking of using the train system to travel around the country and getting together with local guides that can provide a car to show us around the local area and explain what we are seeing.
On a 5 star hotel rating system, we would consider 3 and 4 star hotels.
We are flexible on the total number of days in Switzerland, but are thinking of 7-8 days.
Please arrange a tour taking into account our interests and transportation preferences.
ANTONIS: Dear sir,
We have already booked to stay two nights at Bern (Allegro Hotel), on 1st and 2nd Oct,
and two more nights at Geneva (Royal Hotel) on 3rd and 4th Oct…
What we search is how to “built” a trip programme, so as to combine the swiss railway system and some daily tours, in order to make a romantic and memorable journey, in normal cost.
We have already booked our flights and stay as follows:
We fly from Athens to Zurich, 1st Oct, 06.30 - 08.30
We fly from Zurich to Athens, 5th Oct, 20.30 - 00.30 (6th Oct)
We stay at Bern on 1st and 2nd Oct
We stay at Geneva on 3rd and 4th Oct
So, taking into account the fixed parts of the journey, we have to fill the programme:
2 Oct: FIXED: We wake up in Bern QUESTION: Which day trip to choose starting from Bern or Lucern?
3 Oct: FIXED: We wake up in Bern and some time in the day we must move to Geneva to stay there QUESTION: We thought to make a 5 hour city tour of Geneva. Would you agree?
4 Oct: FIXED: We wake up in Geneva QUESTION: Which day trip to choose starting from Geneva? Chamonix isn’t something special to see, based on Geneva? Would you agree?
5 Oct: FIXED: We wake up in Geneva and at 18.00 we must be in Zurich in order to fly at 20.30 QUESTION: Wouldn’t be a good choice to see Montreux & Chillon Castle in the morning and then take a train Geneva – Zurich Airport at 14.00?
Would you be able to offer some help?
Rainer: One of our clients (in Zurich) has asked for help for a program for a small group next February. We are not sure if our tour program schedule will allow us to help them, so I am looking for alternatives.
I thought that a local Swiss guide from Zurich to accompany this group would perhaps be the most efficient solution to their request. This is why we are contacting you.
details: this is a foreign (but English speaking) school group, with 10 students (middle to high school aged) and 2 teachers.
the program will all be within 1 to 1.5 hours of Zurich, on Feb 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th. the guide would meet the group at 08:45 each day and drop them off again at 17:00.
I notice that you can also arrange transport, which we normally do as well. the group will need a 16 or 17 seat Sprinter.
The excursions are to museums and other sites, as I mentioned, all within about an hour and a half radius of Zurich. there is one day of outside activity, sledding. we can take care of the activity bookings or leave that to the guide.
If you would like to make a quote for the guide services and then separately for the transport, that would be most welcome.
If you have any further questions, I can be reached also at 021 633 44 55 until about 16:00.
