What to include in your Tours of Switzerland

Switzerland, though a country of astonishing beauty, often confuses all and sundry as to which region to cover, which to forego. Maybe if we have a sound understanding about Switzerland’s regional offerings, we can make informed decisions while choosing the various Tours of Switzerland. The city of Lucerne- the heart of the country, is where our journey should start. A side trip to the stupendous Mt Titlis can always be arranged from here.

Further, we can take the Golden Pass train to the picturesque Interlaken, undertake an excursion to Jungfraujoch, perhaps a jaunt around Gstaad or a visit to the panoramic restaurant of Piz Gloria and reach Montreux. If the mood strikes you, we can always make a detour to the Alpine Resort of Zermatt at the foothills of the majestic Matterhorn. Among more comprehensive Tours of Switzerland, one can include the Chillon Castle, Lausanne, Geneva etc in the itinerary.

From Montreux, we can undertake a Northward journey aboard the Glacier Express to the chic and elegant St Moritz via Oberalap Pass. This dramatic journey across hills dotted with chalets and meandering streams and gorges and lofty peaks and Alpine meadows includes some 300 bridges and 90 tunnels. We can indulge in a game of golf amidst scenic settings of this valley or go sailing in one of the many delightful lakes. Zurich is where our journey will conclude with visits to art museums, souvenir shops and the Old Town.
