    The most amazing scenery I have ever laid eyes on. Truely an amazing tour. We have traveled to many European countries and by far Switzerland is our new favorite. Our guide Thomas was very helpful and a wonderful part of the experience. We highly recommend this tour, the only reason it is rated 4 stars instead of 5 stars is I felt some of the hotels could have been a bit nicer.
