This travel company was really great for us. I decided with only about 2 weeks notice to tag along on my husband's trip to Switzerland ... and throw in a long weekend in Northern Italy on top of it! I was in a bit of a frenzy given the short notice, but our contact was able to make some sound recommendations for us. And given that we had some pretty strict timetables (my husband had to be in some very specific places at specific times for meetings) they certainly went above and beyond. We were there for 6 days, and visited Boden, Zurich, and Zug in Switzerland. Then took a train to Stresa, Italy. We then took a day trip to (somewhat) nearby Como and Bellagio. Whew -- it was a bit of a whirlwind, but we certainly enjoyed ourselves!
Stresa was absolutely amazing! When I first spoke with our travel agent, I mentioned that we wanted to stay somewhere near Lake Como, and he suggested Stresa for it's beauty, ease, and cheaper pricetag. And he was spot on! From the hotel, to the quaint downtown, to the island boat tours, the entire place was paradise. We absolutely will be going back.
Two things I would do differently --- the first was our agent scheduled us a car transfer from our hotel to the train station in Zurich. In theory this was a great idea as pulling luggage through busy streets is a pain, but once we go there we realized we were less than a 5 minute walk from the station, so this was 100% unnecessary.
The second, and this was completely on us, was that I had a desire to visit and see nearby Como and Bellagio. Both were beautiful cities, but in retrospect given that we only had a short time to stay in the area, I think our time would have been better utilized staying in the Stresa area. We ended up spending nearly 4 hours in a car that day, and spent a lot of money on the private driver. If you're going to be in the Stresa area for only a few days ... just stay there! It's better, I promise!
