This tour takes you on a journey to the east of the country and experience a beautiful area little touched by international tourism. Visit Appenzell with it`s colourful facades before heading to the tiny mountain principality of Liechtenstein, mainly just to say you have been. Some highlights

Mt Santis & Hoher Kasten
Appenzell Cheese Dairy
Maestrani Chocolate Factory
Longest covered bridge in Europe over Rhine


The drive takes us along the Sihlbrugg pass and across Zürichsee to Rapperswil with its medieval castle. We journey onto Mt Säntis where from a peak of 2502 metres, one can see Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France and Italy (on a clear day).

This is the highest point in the region. After this we journey onto to the green and hilly region of Appenzell where one can stroll through the quaint pedestrian zone with it`s painted wooden houses, before heading back to Luzern, popping into Vaduz in Liechtenstein on the way back.

East Switzerland Adventure

Chris took us on a tour of Rhine Falls, Stein Am Rhein, the Maestrani Chocolarium, and Appenzell. The tour was absolutely fantastic and we could not have asked for a better tour guide. Chris was extremely professional and down to earth. He catered the tour to exactly what we wanted to do and moved at our pace. My family and I will definitely work with Chris again whenever we make it back to Switzerland and cannot say enough great things about our tour!

It was a memorable day with Chris for my wife and I, on my birthday no less! =)

The tour seemed to have begun weeks before we even arrived in the beautiful country of Switzerland! Chris set up a video call way in advance to understand our preferences, clarify our expectations, and also to get a feel of our personalities. What followed were sneak peeks of the magnificence in Switzerland, as well as practical travel tips to consider before we even flew in. This whetted our appetites and made us feel as if we were about to meet a Swiss friend who was going to show us around.

The day spent with Chris was really the highlight of our time in Zurich. The itinerary was flexible and personalized to how we wanted to experience the day trip. We visited the Rhein falls and Stein am Rhein, before Chris set up a special birthday treat at the Ebenalp (out of the itinerary!). It was a view to behold, with paragliders flying around us, and a birthday lunch at the cliff restaurant of Aescher was literally icing on the cake, as Chris arranged for Janine the waitress to bring out a lit up birthday brownie for me. Chris then brought us for a relaxing stroll through Appenzell, including a brewery (the Appenzell lager is really awesome!) and a cheese factory.

Danke schön Chris, for setting up such a special day for my wife and I, one that we will remember whenever Switzerland comes to mind! Ciao ciao!
