Detailed Description

Arrive in Switzerland, and you will feel as though you have reached the top of Europe, home to the towering peaks of the Alps and the legendary production of watches and chocolate. Your 7-day tour will lead you through the mountains and along the lakes for an immersive experience in Swiss culture and the stunning natural scenery. Your journey will begin when your flight lands in Zurich, the largest city in the country. After settling into your hotel, your guide will lead you on a private tour of the city to introduce you to the mixture of modernity and history before leading you into the sweet shops of Old Town.

Wake the next morning, and your private transfer will escort you to Lucerne, one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland. Explore the historical bridges, the spectacular monuments, and powerful imagery that is accentuated by the dramatic landscape during your private tour. The next day, you will make your way to the industrial city of Biel/Bienne to visit a watchmaking company. Follow a master watchmaker through the factory before you design and create your own perfect, personalized watch. The next day, enjoy a scenic train ride into the Berner Oberland region and the town of Interlaken.
