Everything went as planned in terms of schedule, lodging, and sightseeing.

Borislava From STC was awesome, organized, and extremely helpful to help plan for the trip, and very accommodating to my requests.

I would definitely recommend this for my friends
Best of Switzerland over 8 days

Incredible route across the whole country by Trains everyday, plus one Boat and one Bus. Very nice Hotels prearranged every night, all within easy walks from the Train Stations. The highest Mountains and most beautivful valleys. World Famous cities and train routes. Good for active folks who like to explore towns upon arrival, do some moderate hiking, and can make exact train schedules. Super value! Great job, Viator!

What an experience! I would recommend this trip for anyone that can walk from one train to another. The scenery from the train was so awesome. The hotels were great, some greater than others - such as the Unique Hotel Eden in St. Moritz - an amazing hotel! And the tour company's Nora was sensational - she was there for us the whole time answering my questions any time I had one. The only thing I regret about this trip is that we didn't have more time! We would have liked to spend more time in the fantastic cities we visited - Zurich, St Moritz, Lucerne, Zermatt, etc. We will be visiting Switzerland again aboard the Swiss trains.
