This private tour with Chris allowed us to see as much as we possibly could with such a short time in Switzerland and with the unexpected cold/rainy weather. Chris tailors the day to you and your interests specifically. I work in the arts and was looking for a Switzerland country side experience. We had an itinerary of waterfalls, gorges, lakes, gardens and surprised with added cultural stops such as speaking with a wood carving student and visiting a glass blowing exhibit. You can tell that Chris has lots of connections to help make the most unique experience out of our tour. Our day did have to be cut short with us having to transfer to our cruise ship at 4pm, so I wish the price had been modified for that. I will say, Chris picked us up earlier in attempt to get us the most out of our day and he kept us very punctual. Overall, I’d highly recommend this tour due to the irreplaceable tailoring of the day and access to unique experiences through connections!

We had the best experience for our first time to Switzerland. We heard Chris on a Swiss podcast and looked him up to see if he’d be free for our trip. He was very responsive and contacted us ahead of time to get an idea of what we were looking for in our trip. We only had two days in Lucerne so we had him plan a two day tour which was so nice to pass the planning over to him. We just showed up and everything was planned. He picked us up from the airport and we started our first day tour from there. We packed in so much beauty and experiences in a short time. Chris is really good at stopping at places long enough to snap a beautiful picture and surprising you around each corner with Switzerland beauty. He knows all the best spots. Day two was a trip up into the mountains. It was absolutely stunning. We ended both days with our favorite dinners of the trip at a local places Chris recommended. The first night the two of us sat for over 3 hours as the menu was set with courses coming out all through the night. It was off the beaten path so out of the tourist area. We were the only English speakers which was nice to dine like the locals. The two days with Chris started our trip off so well that we were able to relax a little for the rest of the trip knowing we had checked so many Swiss travel boxes. If your planning a trip my biggest suggestion would be to pass a couple days off to Chris and let him do the planning. It was so nice to turn our brains off and just enjoy the beauty. It was such an efficient way to see Switzerland. 🇨🇭 Thank you Chris for such a wonderful experience!!!

Our tour was perfect and exactly what we wanted! Chris Wilson understands Customer Service and did a great job showing us around the Bernese Oberlands Region and allowed us to set the pace. Chris was informative and very helpful. Our family loved the day and Chris did a great job. We also enjoyed the conversation and music while traveling from place to place.

Chris is a brilliant tour guide. He thoroughly discussed tour options prior to the trip, and continued to send photos and recommendations throughout our travels. Chris accommodated our interests and worked with us to tailor the tour. He took us on several adventures, the highlight of our trip! We built Swiss Army knives, decorated chocolate bars at a chocolate factory, and blew glass at a glass factory. He then drove us into the spectacular Bernese mountains and Lauterbrunnen/Interlaken area. I highly recommend Chris for an outstanding tour!

Chris is a wonderful private tour guide! He spent an awesome 9 hours with my daughter and I (it was our first time ever hiring a private guide so I was a little apprehensive) but Chris put me right at ease. Chris is friendly, knowledgeable, funny and took us on a great trip all around Switzerland. He picked us up right on time from our hotel and we got to see a little more of gorgeous Lucerne, breathtaking Bernese Oberland region, Lake Brienz, Lauterbrunnen and so much more! He even took us a all the way to Zurich to drop me off at my next hotel. He communicated effectively and promptly upon booking the reserve and planned our day based on what I liked and knew I wanted to see, he added in some places he knew I would like after getting to know me during multiple conversations prior to meeting and he even had fun surprises along the way! The weather put a little damper in our original plans and he went with it and still made the day awesome. 5 Star service all the way! We are already planning our next trip back to gorgeous Switzerland next year to see more of it and plan on hiring Chris again, this time probably for a multiple day tour because we loved it THAT much! :-)
