We had a great day with Chris. He was able to fit everything we wanted to do into the day. Our wine tasting was fabulous and you can't beat the wonderful Swiss cheese and chocolates.

Chris Wilson provided a road trip that exceeded our expectations. Chris was extremely pleasant, great conversationalist and a really nice guy. Picked us up in Lucern, gave a great tour of Bern, then on to Bulle and Broc for tours of Gruyère cheese and Cailler chocolate. Chris went overboard as he consented to help locate my family’s relatives in the Diemtigtal valley. We feel very fortunate to have found someone of such excellent character as Chris.
