This is one heck of a trip! Everything was perfectly planned. We’ve wanted to do this all of our lives, and now that we’re here, I can’t believe we waited this long. - J.M. - Washington


After arrival in Zurich (or Geneva), we will provide you with a train ticket to get to Grindelwald. The group will meet on the first day at 3:00 pm in the hotel lobby for a casual meet and greet.


After a final breakfast in the hotel, we again provide you with a train ticket back to the airport or any Swiss city for onward travel.
