What To Expect

What would be?

When you come away from the crowded mass tourism places and can enjoy the pure beauty of nature almost all alone?

If before you one of the highest waterfalls in the world and countless glittering lakes present their true charm and you can savor these special moments to the fullest?

When you come home in the evening and you go to bed tired but overjoyed?

If you've already thought of it, this guided private tour with background knowledge about the origins of Switzerland and its nature is just right for you.

With us the nature and the person with his wishes and longings in the center stands

That's why we focus on guided private tours in small groups so we have plenty of time for you and your escorts to show you beautiful and remote places and landscapes. At the same time, we can spare these places from huge tourist crowds. The magical places and the positivity of our tour guides create unique and unforgettable moments.

And best of all: You decide who comes along. There are no other guests.

Despite guided tour (in English or German) you will of course have plenty of time for yourself.

Tour Description

Strengthened by breakfast, we pick you up at 8.30 clock at Zurich Altstetten station. Do you live in a hotel or in an apartment in the city or near surroundings, we can also pick you up there.

Afterwards we drive along Lake Zurich and are already learning the first facts. The ride is perfect for this.

How did the landscape look like 20,000 years ago? How did she develop? And did you know that Lake Zurich and Lake Walen were once a lake? We will explain these and other questions and aspects in a simple and understandable way.

Of course we also have a lot of time for your questions.

One of the highest free-falling waterfalls in the world

After about an hour we reach the first stop. Since we have to go 2x30 minutes, good footwear is recommended (hiking shoes of advantage, sneakers are also sufficient).

And now you are standing in front of this impressive waterfall. How do you feel? I can say it now ...

This power and wilderness of the waterfall make an indescribable feeling! No word or picture of the world can put this into words. Even more impressive, when you know that it is one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in the world.

A moment that you simply have to enjoy to the fullest.

And another lake!

Here it looks like in the wild west of Canada. Surrounded by mighty rock formations of the Swiss Alps, adorned with a beautiful green fir and pine forest, the lake is located in a wild and romantic mountain landscape. Definitely a pearl that you absolutely must have seen.

Very hard-boiled ones can even take a very refreshing bath despite this season.

House of Laderach
Visit to one of the best Swiss chocolatiers

If time permits, we will visit the factory shop of one of Switzerland's best and most famous chocolatiers on the way back. This selection and this fine chocolate fragrance bring everyone into raptures! While one pays half a fortune in the normal shop, one comes here very favorably and with large quantities away.

You can also do a tour of the factory on request. Important: Recently there are construction works. The visit is therefore not possible. However, the factory shop is still open, where bargains of over 60% over normal sales can be made. It depends on your priorities. Since we are a small group, specific to your wishes and desires can be addressed.

And now enough talk.

We look forward to this unique tour with you.

Top 1 vacation experience in my life. Priceless.

I don't usually leave reviews anywhere. But this time I must say: wow!
The whole tour experience was excellent from the beginning when I was picked up at my hotel by Marc, the guide, all the way to the end. I strongly recommend the private tour especially to people that wish to unwind in paradise -like places and enjoy nature and the real Switzerland to the max. Being received with a warm greeting by Mark, including a Toblerone chocolate bar, we headed from Zurich to the south, driving through Immensee area where you have great views from the highway , passing through Brunnen where we stopped for a couple of minutes to take stunning lake views, and the first stop was the very original swiss town of Aldorf, where I learned about the origins of Switzerland and Wilhelm Tell, the national hero. Very interesting story indeed. Then we continued our journey to Bürglen, Uri canton with stunning towns views. After that experience we stopped in a natural waterfall at Unterschächen. Breathtaking experience for the senses. For a stressed out entrepreneur like me, this was an incredible moment of relaxation and reflection. Words are not enough. So much beauty and peace. We continue going to observe the glacier of Urnerboden after a 30 minute trekking climb, which is by the way a great workout for your body and soul. Incredible views from the glacier. See photos. I can continue mentioning other places we visited with more waterfalls and perfect nature settings, but, since those are places that no tourist crowds go normally, I would recommend you to contact Marc and live this unforgettable adventure. It´s worth every single penny. And I don´t want to forget for those chocolate lovers to make a stop at Läderach outlet shop. High quality chocolates for a fraction of the retail price. Yum!
Once again, perfect day, perfect tour, amazing guide and all I can say is: don´t look further if you need a private tour to enjoy the best in Switzerland. Marc, being an experienced environmentalist, it´s your best option. I will definitely return with myswisspanorama in my next trip!
