About the tour
A round-trip tour from Zurich, this week-long expedition takes you from a booming metropolis to a beautiful mountain town then out to a lakeside resort. Your time will be spent gazing upon the picturesque Swiss Alps, riding aboard wonderful railways and seeing sites both modern and medieval. The tour begins in Zurich, where you will have a day to enjoy all the best things the largest city in Switzerland is famous for. From Zurich, it is on to Lucerne for an independent mountain excursion of your choosing, then to the piece de resistance of the tour, Montreux, for three days of sightseeing and excursions that present the very best things this Lake Geneva locale has to offer. Whether it is history, scenery or once-in-a-lifetime experiences you seek, this tour offers something for everyone.
Arrive in Zürich and transfer on your own to your hotel, where the day is yours to wander along the cobbled streets of Old Town and explore the city's restaurants and shops. Overnight Zürich.

The trip to Pelatus was very confusing -should have been told that you could go up/down two ways (gondola and cog) from two different towns. Directions to Frakmuntegg (bus and walking) were very inadequate; we wandered in the hot sun and found it by chance. And more detailed instructions on how to use the train tickets would have been helpful, such a you needed to show the reduces 1/2 fare as well as the tickets.
