We will introduce you to Zurich with a short orientation before we commence our tour. We will first visit the Fraumunster Church with its slender spire beckoning the sky! Founded by King Louis, this church was inhabited by the female aristocrats of Europe. We then head to Bahnhofstrasse, the world famous shopping boulevard; if shopping isn’t your thing then you can stroll along the lake and enjoy hot chocolate in a café nearby. We will see famous museums, stroll through the charming Old Town, meander in the old promenade Limmatquai, walk through the University district, step into the smallest Opera house in the world and also admire the beautiful residential areas and the stunning hillside villas on the Zurichberg!
Today we are going on a day trip to Germany and will see the largest natural lake in the Black Forest, Lake Titisee. We will visit also the Cuckoo Clock Factory in Hofgut Sternen and learn from local experts about the history of the beautiful handcrafted cuckoo clocks – Made in Germany only!
You can use your free time to indulge in authentic Cuckoo Clock shopping, and go for short walks into the Black Forest if you so desire. How about having some coffee and tasting an original Black Forest Cake which is named after this magical forest of Germany!
MyPeople, a dainty medieval town back in Switzerland awaits you! Schaffhausen is a gateway to the famous tourist attraction – The Rhine Falls, the largest waterfall in Europe which is about 450 feet wide and over 75 feet in height. The glorious view of the falls is surely a soothing treat to the eyes. We will make the most of Schaffhausen and the Rhine falls and head back to Zurich for a leisurely evening.
Heading to Flawil today to surprise our sense of taste! MyPeople, Flawil will become your chocolate heaven, as we will be visiting the fantastic Maestrani chocolate factory! The mysterious secrets of chocolate-making will be revealed to us and we can then admire and taste some delicious Swiss chocolates fresh out from the factory itself! Our tour guide will even take us through the museum, gallery and chocolate tasting and of course we might even get to see a movie on the history of Swiss chocolate making!
One of the most gorgeous Swiss cities awaits you, MyPeople! Lucerne has beautiful wooden bridges, candy coloured homes and stunning waterfronts. I’m very sure that MyPeople would love to shop for original Swiss watches, chocolates and souvenirs here. We will visit the colourful Altstadt (Old town), the famous lion monument (the most sentimental of Swiss monuments), and of course the stunning Kapellbrücke, one of the oldest standing wooden bridges in the world! The city is also central to accessing the hiking and skiing destinations in the Alps.
MyPeople, we will stay in Engelberg, a beautiful Alpine mountain village experience with panoramic views of breath-taking mountain scenery! It used to be a quiet monastery village, and it is a place where you can enjoy pure relaxation amidst powder heaven!
MyPeople, experience Paradise today!!! We are on our way to Engelberg’s highest glacier park and to Mount Titlis at 10,000 feet. We will board the revolving Rotair cableway and watch the grand, imposing snow-capped mountains! On Mount Titlis you visit the Ice Grotto cave, which is 20 metres below ice!

We will today pass by picturesque villages and scenery. Yes MyPeople, we are on our way to Mount Jungfrau – The Top of Europe is at altitude 13,642 feet above sea level. Enroute we will behold stunning views of the Lauterbrunnen valley, a U-shaped trough valley in the Alps. Wouldn’t you like to board a cogwheel train to the top of Jungfrau? The excitement is overwhelming when we reach the top and find time to explore the Ice Palace with larger than life ice sculptures! That’s not all; we will also visit the Sphinx Observation Tower and take in views of the Aletsch glacier and the mighty peaks around it.
After we are back to base from Jungfrau you have an opportunity to witness nothing short of a miracle, MyPeople!! Our TimeOut today offers you the unique opportunity to visit Trummelbach waterfalls which are worlds only waterfalls that can be reached by inside the mountain pulley lift! These waterfalls drop around 22,000 litres of water per second, are inside a mountain and drain the waters from the mighty Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger Glaciers!
TRUMMELBACH FALLS – EUROS 25
MyPeople, we will depart from Thun to visit Col du Pillon, where we will take the cable car and visit Glacier 3000 in the Glacier Diablerets which is situated between Lake Geneva and Gstaad. They used to say that the Devils roamed the glacial plateau of Les Diablerets but today it is full of magical views and adventures! The architect Mario Botta’s creation of the mountain station will astonish you. With a panoramic summit of 24 snow-capped peaks, you are bound to be spellbound!
We will go through the Furka Pass, the road which has been expanded and rebuilt in recent times and which usually features a Furka steam engine that runs past the road, as the winding road gets lost into the mountains. The route is enchanting as it has a fantastic view of the valley.
MyPeople, we now reach Täsch and will stop over at the base of Mount Matterhorn
When we arrive in Zermatt via the train in Tasch, we will get to go up to Mount Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Here some of the views of the observation platform are so far reaching that you might even catch the Mediterranean! This is going to be possible only when we take the 100-seater cable car that will glide across to the summit as we daydream in a snow paradise!
MyPeople, you will be blown away by the hypnotic Matterhorn Mountain. It is a celebrity in itself, and we can spot its peak anywhere in the town! You can have a world of adventures here. It is indeed the mountain found on the world’s favourite Swiss chocolate logo – Toblerone ! It has a certain magical light on it where it can be perceived as a cracked tooth and even a pyramid.
In the afternoon, we can enjoy leisure time in Zermatt and visit the Bahnhofstrasse which has upscale shops for window shopping. If you’d like to just go and try ice-skating, you can do that too!
MyPeople, after taking in the breath-taking view of the grand Matterhorn Mountain, we will continue our journey to Montreux,a beautiful resort town known for its famous Jazz festival which is held every year in July. It usually has a mild climate and the flora is usually similar to the Mediterranean. Did you know that Freddie Mercury lived here and Charlie Chaplin in Vevy nearby? Enjoy the lakefront promenade and the lovely houses and make the most of your stay here.
You will be in awe with nature at its best with our TimeOut planned for you – a photo stop at Chateau Chillon and entrance to an Underground Swiss Lake!
We will also see and take pictures at the beautiful castle, Chateau Chillon near Lake Geneva, one of the most delightful historical buildings of Switzerland. That’s not all; we have to visit the underground lake Leonard, MyPeople, and it is one of the most amazing places with crystal clear underground water grottos which can only be visited by boat.
We are now on our way to Berne, the Capital city of Switzerland. It holds a record of being the only city in the world with World Heritage status! Upon arrival we will introduce you to the Bears of Bern – the City is named after them! You will have a walking city orientation tour to see the city’s main clock tower and the Parliament which is one of the important symbol of politics in Switzerland. See the beautiful Gothic fountains of Berne as we stroll through the city and you will know why it is called the “City of Fountains”. Did you know that Albert Einstein lived here?
