Chris gave us a spectacular day! After a quick phone call and some brief messages he crafted an amazing day. He not only filled all our requests but he showed us some great sights we didn’t even know about. He had great knowledge and insight for each stop making us appreciate the places even more. You will not forget a day with Chris! Book it and enjoy the best!

We booked a whole day with Chris Wilson, the owner of TST. His information and photo sharing before the trip helped us determine what we would want to see. He took us places no one would know to go to, as well as many other photogenic and activity stops. Lake Lucerne, Interlaken, both a wood carving and glass blowing venue, and great stories! If you are going to Switzerland and have the time, I would recommend Typically Swish Tours and More be at the top of your list! Excellent.

Barb & I with friends Harold & Dianna enjoyed a wonderful tailor-made day long excursion to the Bernese Oberlands with Chris! One of the very best tours ever filled with scenery and insight from Chris that would be impossible on our own. Highlights were the Aareschlucht Canyon trail hike, a personalized wood carving experience in Brienz, and a boat ride across the lake from Brienz to the Grandhotel Giessbach that included a short funicular railway ride. Truly a day in the Swiss countryside that is impossible to repeat without Chris!

Excellent tours. We spent two days with Chris. Extremely knowledgeable, patient and kind. I would highly recommend touring with Chris when in Switzerland.

We had a great experience with Chris. Communication ahead of our day was excellent. He tailored our activities to our interests and the weather and was very flexible. We ended up spending much of the day at the jungfraujoch which was wonderful. It would have been a shame had we went on a different day with bad weather. Chris let us stay as long or as short a time as we wanted at various places, gave us advance notice as to scheduling for places that had transportation schedules, and took copious pictures even to satisfy the whims of my 17 year old. The private and customized tour experience was great. November is shoulder season so a number of things were closed but we still had a great time. Particularly if you are short of time or don’t want to travel in a group, this is an excellent choice. Would highly recommend
