What To Expect

Lake Zurich
Many places in Switzerland are overrun by tourism. Not so here! We pick you up in front of the hotel and take you to beautiful hidden places in Switzerland.

Enjoy a full-day excursion (8-9h) with no more guests aboard - just you and your people. We take you off the beaten path to breathtaking natural and cultural insider spots that are hard to find for tourists (and for most Swiss). That's our specialization.

You have the chance to get to know Switzerland by a local environmental & Swiss expert (MSc ETH Zurich). Here you not only learn a lot about Switzerland (for example history and culture), but also about the environment (e.g. Swiss Alps).

Whether a family with children, a couple or an individual. This tour is for those who love nature, culture & chocolate and want to get to know beautiful places without mass tourism. Even hiking is possible.

If you have any wishes or needs, please let us know after your booking. But also on the tour we are flexible and spontaneous. What's waiting for you: We pick you up and your people in front of the hotel and organize everything (from the tour to the picnic), which is why everything is stress-free for you. Since this is a private tour, nobody else will be on board - just you and your companions. Now we leave the city by car in the direction of our first stop. Already during the journey you will learn a lot about the history and nature of Switzerland. Did you know, for example, that Zurich, where today more than 1 million people live, was covered with a glacier 25,000 years ago? During our trip we drive to the mountains of the Swiss Alps. You will love the picture-book landscape, which is covered with beautiful wooden houses, lakes, waterfalls, forests and green meadows. In the summer you will also see cows grazing in the Alps. Explore makes hungry, right? After a few stops (or a hike?) You can enjoy a delicious Swiss picnic in front of a breathtaking scenery, which makes the day even more memorable. After lunch we look at more beautiful places. What would Switzerland be without chocolate? On the way back we stop at the chocolate factory shop in Läderrach. Here you will find the best Swiss premium chocolate. From huge bargains to great gifts you will get everything your heart desires. A great souvenir! If you have any wishes or needs, please let us know. We try everything to make your day unforgettable.

Switzerland’s most beautiful spots
jeffandsandy2000, 10-11-2022
Switzerland was beautiful and our tour guide Claudia made it even more special. She took us to hidden places that we would have never seen on any other tour. We laughed with her all day and she made us feel more like family than just tourists. Switzerland was the first stop on our trip and was only staying there two nights. I would do this tour again. I would rate Claudia a 10.
The best hidden tour of Switzerland

Forget every other tour offered in Switzerland and book this one. Marc is the true hidden gem of Switzerland, and he will show you the most breathtaking views, in such an exclusive manner. Each location is so stunning; exploration of picturesque views of the Swiss Alps and Swiss villages, that you will stand in absolute silence purely stunned by the landscape. Areas that you would not even know to explore on your own, as many other native Swiss people don't even know of these locations! And there will just be you, your guests and Marc. The only sound that breaks the silence is cow bells. These areas are not hustling with tourists so you can enjoy the scenary without feeling like you're getting in the way of others or vice versa. As Marc said to us, you will see more cows than people. There is one location that is a 45 min walk, it is not rigorous, novice level, do not give up the chance to see it! The waterfall that awaits you is so mesmerizing. The trail also has beautiful views along the way.

Marc is very friendly and his hospitality outshines in a genuine manner. He is extremely flexible and easy going. If there are specific locations you wish to go to, he will take you there but I highly highly recommend forgetting the basic tourist spots and just going along with his secret beautiful locations. We went a few days after the tour to basic tourist spots like Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken, and although beautiful, the tour with Marc was hands down way better. He is also extremely knowledgeable and talks about interesting fun topics that make the tour even more enjoyable. He brings many delicious Swiss chocolate treats, upon entering his car there are sweets awaiting you and a lovely hand written letter. He even cooks lunch for you alongside the river!! We also had dessert by the waterfall. He is a great photographer and your pictures will capture the charm and beauty of the secret side of Switzerland. Get an early start as well, don't wait for him to pick you up at 9am, head out before that! We started at 630 am and it was worth it, we even caught the sunrise behind the Swiss Alps.

If you are in doubt, forget that feeling and BOOK IMMEDIATELY!!
100/10 stars AMAZING!

Hands down the highlight of our 6 day Swiss trip. This was our first time outside of the U.S. but Marc made us feel like family. A tour tailored to what you want to see and more. Marc was so amazing never made us feel like outsiders and even though we only had him for one day he still kept in touch to see how the rest of our stay was going. From buying chocolates to the most amazing sights we will ever see Marc was just the best. When we return not if when we will diffidently set up another tour. Marc if you’re reading this you definitely made this trip that much better thank you for everything we hope to see you sooner rather than later.
Stunning hidden gems of Switzerand!

Roland was our guide for two consecutive days in the Interlaken, Unterschachen, Grimmelwald and Lauterbrunnen regions. He was very knowledgeable not only about your typical tourist questions, but he was able to explain a lot of things about Swiss life and culture, that were unknown to us. We went to numerous regions with Roland, a couple which were off the beaten path. We did not want to travel in a “touristy” way, but wanted see some private hidden gems of beautiful Switzerland, which he provided. We very much enjoyed our time with Roland and highly recommend if you are looking for a more personalized tour of some truly beautiful places.
Pictures/ Views Not worth 1000 words or $1500

I was disappointed. All of the reviews with Marc as the guide seemed amazing. I didn’t have Marc. I didn’t see half of the things that other groups photos included and I was picked up in a small car with tape holding the passenger side rear view mirror together. Spent more time in the car driving to the few places . Not worth the $1500 USD I spent. I feel that I could’ve seen more on the $100-300$ group tours available.
