Upon your arrival, embark on a walking tour of Zurich. Relish in the sights of the beautiful yet compact city as you take in the splendid architecture and the glittering sight of the turquoise lake. Stroll through the Old Town and drop by Bahnhofstrasse, an exclusive shopping boulevard where you’ll find your favourite luxury brands. Next, visit the National Museum Zurich, which shows Swiss history from its beginnings to present day. Thereafter, continue to Lucerne for overnight.
This morning, ride a train to Vitznau. Hop on board the cogwheel train to ascend 1,797 metres above sea level to Rigi Kulm, the highest peak of Mount Rigi. Enjoy fantastic views of the Swiss Plateau, the Black Forest, the Vosges Mountains, and the Alps from the Queen of the Mountains. After which, take a boat ride on Lake Lucerne. Return to the 14-century city of Lucerne to see its storybook wooden Old Chapel Bridge, baroque church, and sorrowful Lion Monument. Following that, make your way to Glacier Garden, where you will travel back in time for a glimpse of the glaciers and kettle basins dating from the Ice Age.
Set off on your panoramic journey on the Luzern – Interlaken Express, which connects two world-famous destinations. Bask in the incredible panoramas of the mountain scenery, beautiful lakes and thundering waterfalls that adorn the countryside along the way. Afterwards, go on a brief walk to Harderbahn valley station and hop on a funicular that will take you 1322m above sea level to the top - Harder Kulm, for spectacular views of the mountains and valleys of the Berner Oberland region. Note: Prior to the funicular operation date, the Harder Kulm will be replaced with Stanserhorn without prior notice.
Enjoy the free day exploring the beautiful surrounding mountain region at your own leisure. You may wish to take up our recommended optional trip to the “Top of Europe” on Jungfraujoch, where you will be blown away by some of the most amazing views of the alpine wonderland. Optional: Jungfraujoch
Set off from Interlaken as you travel along Lake Thun and pass through the Simmental Valley to Gstaad. Take a brief wander at this glitzy resort village before boarding the GoldenPass panoramic train. This well-known panoramic train whizzes past a beautiful cluster of rivers, clear mountain lakes and waterfalls in Switzerland. The trip comes to an end when the train arrives in Montreux, a town situated on the shores of Lake Geneva.
Board a Lake Steamer cruise from Montreux to Chillon. Relax on the boat and enjoy the spectacular scenes of the Swiss Riviera, admiring the numerous lakeside villages and a backdrop of beautiful mountains.

Head to the Riffelsee Lake, the lake with the legendary mirror-image of the Matterhorn. Thereafter, visit the Matterhorn Museum, a cultural natural museum offering a deeper insight into the history and development of Zermatt.

Had an awesome time with our recent Grand Train Tour Switzerland (5-15/10/22). While we had kind weather and good tour mates, it was most of all, a dedicated and efficient tour manager who made the difference. Darien Tang is totally professional, knowledgeable and passionate about his craft. His exceptional service started even before our tour did with his Watsapp contact. It was definitely not easy to lead a group of 31pax through public transport such as bus, boat and trains but Darien did it all well. Appreciate the verbal and Watsapp reminders on the tour, weather as well as places of interest and makan places nearby. Appreciate that he’s always contactable and his taking the extra mile for us. Thank you very much Darien for taking good care of us during the trip. From: Peggy & Sookie.
