The trip was fast paced but we were able to really experience so many beautiful sights, and also take several very fun hikes on the mountain tops. - D.T. - Florida


After arrival in Zurich, (on the day the tour starts) we will provide you with a train pass to get to Lucerne (1 hour by train). The rail pass we provide, covers only the dates of the tour. We can arrange a rail pass upgrade to cover any additional travel days before or after the tour, just check with us beforehand for more information and pricing.

The tour group will meet on the first day of the tour at 12:30 pm in the hotel lobby for a casual meet and greet and mountain excursion to Mt. Pilatus. Note that you will need to travel with your luggage to Lucerne and get to the hotel on your own (approximately 2 blocks from the train station). We will provide a map and directions to this hotel with your tour documents.


After a final breakfast in the Zurich hotel you can continue to your future destinations. Please note that if you choose to extend your time in Switzerland, we can delay your final hotel night in Zurich to a later date if needed.
