My partner and I enjoyed a marvelous day with Chris earlier this month. He spoke with us in advance to gauge our interests, then continued to adapt the tour to our interests and needs as he got to know us better that day. His vehicle is nice and comfortable, and he is an excellent driver, allowing us to just sit back, relax, and enjoy. We were able to see and do things we wouldn't have on our own, and he gave us suggestions and confidence to use the Swiss rail system to see additional places on our own. Touring with Chris is like spending time with a new friend who is eager to share the best of where they live with you. He took lots of photos of us, providing us wonderful visual memories of our day. His sense of humor and excellent service make you want to come back for more!
Bernese Oberland Tour

We spent the day with Chris exploring the Bernese Oberland region.
There is so much to see and Chris made sure we saw what was of most interest to us.

He took bunches of great pictures so we have a treasure trove of memories.
Truly a wonderful experience that made our vacation very special.
A great introduction to Swiss culture

My wife and I spent three days with TST prior to embarking on a river cruise. With only four days in Switzerland, we wanted to make the most of our time. We did a walking tour of Zurich, ate amazing fondue, toured the Bernese Oberland including a visit to Schiltorn and the Interlachen area. Chris took the time to understand our interests and tailored the tours to our tastes. In addition to great locales, he took us to a few local restaurants where we enjoyed great food and wonderful conversation on the Swiss culture and history. By the time our tours were over, it wasn’t like parting from a tour guide, but like leaving a friend. Should we return to Switzerland, we will definitely spend more time with TST.
From Zurich to interlakken in the beat possible way
