Detailed Description

Switzerland is a land of castles and villages, lakes and mountains all topped by snowcapped mountaintops that glisten with glaciers. Your 7-day tour takes your family into the unique culture of the Alps to tell the stories of the people through their landscape and living artifacts. Your vacation begins with your arrival at the Zurich airport as your private transfer greets you to escort you to the fabulous city of Lucerne, located on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Take some time to settle in, and your guide will meet you in the lobby for a family tour of the historical streets and celebrated covered bridges. The next day, you will enjoy a cruise on Lake Lucerne and take a scenic gondola ride to the top of Mount Pilatus. When you return to the city, you will meet your private yodeling instructor who will teach your family the history and art of yodeling.

Wake up the next day and journey to Interlaken. En route, stop in the village of Brienz to absorb the striking scenery and sensational woodwork. Once in Interlaken, enjoy your afternoon with a stroll through the collection of hamlets and flower-studded avenues. Next, you will venture into the Berner Oberland region to discover a mixture of charming villages and dramatic mountain peaks. Take a unique train ride to the Jungfraujoch station situated at the “Top of Europe” to relish the view and stroll through the Ice Palace before your return to Interlaken. Continue to visit the capital city of Bern, a UNESCO World Heritage site that stands atop a sandstone ridge.

In the town of Gruyeres, your family will take an engaging tour of the chocolate factory to learn about the history of chocolate from its origins to its evolution in Europe. Top off your tour with a sample of the factory’s various delicacies before arriving in the town of Lausanne on the banks of Lake Geneva. Spend the next day on a family tour of the enchanting old town and a boat cruise to explore the opulent castle of Chateau de Chillon.
