Assemble at the airport and depart for Zurich, financial metropolis of Switzerland.
Upon your arrival, embark on an orientation tour of Lucerne. Visit the Old Chapel Bridge – the oldest wooden bridge in Switzerland, Old Town Lucerne with its unspoiled buildings covered with colourful murals and the Lion Monument. Then, make your way to the Glacier Garden Museum, where you will travel back in time to get a glimpse at the glaciers and kettle basins dating from the Ice Age.
This morning, begin with a boat ride on Lake Lucerne to Vitznau. Modern motor boats and nostalgic steamboats bring you over the incredible, fjord-like water to Vitznau. Thereafter hop on the cogwheel train ascend to 1,797 meters above sea level – Rigi Kulm is the highest peak of Mount Rigi. Enjoy fantastic views of the Swiss Plateau, the Black Forest, the Vosges Mountains, and the Alps awaits from the Queen of the Mountains. Afterward, you will then travel to the heart of Switzerland to Interlaken for overnight.
Starting from Interlaken, you will first journey along Lake Thun and before going through Simmen Valley to Zweisimmen. Here, the GoldenPass Panoramic route takes over, running past magnificent castles and peacefully grazing cattle to finally leave the German-speaking part of Switzerland to the French-speaking region. On the last leg, the train winds its way through the hills and valley before arriving at Montreux. Optional: Jungfraujoch – ''Top of Europe''
Today paying a visit to the 1000-yearold Chillon Castle – an oval shaped masterpiece positioned on a small, rocky outcrop that pokes into Lake Geneva. Your journey continue as the train follows along the banks of Lake Geneva, passing orchards and vineyards in Lower Valais to go as far as Visp. Here, you will change over to the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway and in the next hour, traverse through Switzerland’s deepest valley to the Matterhorn village of Zermatt. Upon reaching the station, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the world’s most iconic mountain peak, the magnificent Matterhorn. Note: Zermatt will be replaced by Brig, if hotel is not available.
After breakfast, you will board the world’s first fully electrified cog railway – the Gornergrat Bahn – which starts from the village centre in Zermatt, go through verdant forests and lovely meadows and up to the Gornergrat (3,089m) for the finest views of the Matterhorn. The observation platform at 3131 meters offers commanding views of 29 summits over 4000-meters high. Afterwards, continue your journey to Riffelsee Lake, a charming mountain lake that is situated 5 minutes from the cable car station. The placid waters of the lake reflect the majestic and jagged Matterhorn. From there you will visit the Matterhorn Museum, a culturalnatural museum, which offers a deeper insight into the history and development of Zermatt.
Get set for an incredible ride onboard the Glacier Express – the world’s most famous panorama train. The ride travels across the Alps and connects fashionable Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn with the equally sophisticated St. Moritz. On the 8-hourjourney through the mountainous Cantons of Valais, Uri and Grisons, the train dives through 91 tunnels and chugs across 291 bridges. Be treated to unobstructed views of an imposing mountainscape, deep ravines and picturesque valleys – all from the comfort of the cabin. You will then enjoy a three-course lunch onboard the train. Soon, you will arrive in St Moritz, where you will spend the night. Note: St Moritz will be replaced by Davos if hotel is not available. Sequence of itinerary may change without notice in adjustment to the popular demand of Glacier Express.
Today you will board the famous UNESCO World Heritage train, the Bernina Express. Admire the spectacular scenery on the world’s highest altitude railroad, as you pass through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges along the way, including the signature 65m-high Landwasser Viaduct. Spend the night in Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland which has a settlement history of over 5,000 years.
The train journey continues from Chur to St. Gallen. You will be visiting the Abbey Library of Saint Gall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where over 170,000 books and manuscripts are stored. After which, spend some time wandering this town that dates from the 7th century. Continue to Zurich, the lively city of Switzerland.

Tour: 10D/7N Grand Train Tour Switzerland plus 2N Dubai Date: 1-12 October 2019 Tour Manager: Wang Jia Fu 2 years ago we travel with EU Tours to Norway and on the first day 10 of us were lost by the irresponsible tour guide. We are glad that we decided to give EU a second chance and met with a totally different experience and in spite of having my luggage broken on the first move by the train porters and in spite of the unappetizing food we had been given and despite the sun-tanned Glacier Express (aka Sunshine Express to us now).... we applaud the efforts and dedication of Wang Jiafu who really made the big difference and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We will like to have other opportunities to join Jiafu's led tours again. We truly believe that the tour manager really makes a huge impact on the success of the tour.

Tour : 10D7N Grand Train Tour of Switzerland + 2N Dubai Date : 01 - 12 Oct 2019 Tour Manager : Jia Fu My husband and I went on this tour and we had a wonderful time in Switzerland. Commuting was by train and sometimes by bus. We had to walk between hotel and train stations and walk to all the sightseeing locations. Although we did not have a tour coach to ferry us around, travelling on the Swiss trains was a comfortable and pleasant experience nonetheless. Our tour manager Jia Fu did a very good job in leading all 36 of us. He made sure that we were on time for all the train rides. He would diligently go round the cabins to make sure that everyone was ok. All the itineraries were carried out smoothly and at a relaxed pace. Hotel accommodation was good. But with regards to the meal plan (lunch and dinner) it would be good if guests were given the option to choose their preferred choice of meat for the main course. Nevertheless we did have an enjoyable vacation. All thanks to our very responsible tour manager Jia Fu who had put in a lot of hard work to make this trip a memorable and delightful experience for us. We will definitely choose EU Holidays for our future vacations.

My family and I went for the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland from the 1st to 12 October. Our tour manager was Wang Jia Fu. He was very witty, caring and knowledgeable. He would constantly tell us interesting stories about the country, get souvenirs for us, making sure we get the most out of the trip. He would also always remind us on the following day’s weather to make sure that we are in the right attire. In addition to normal tour manager responsibilities, he went an extra mile to make our trip as enjoyable as possible. For example, arranging a birthday cake for my mum which took us by surprise, buying us beer and wine to accompany our meals, and personally booking a coach for us from Zurich Airport to the train station so that we did not have to go through the trouble of handling our luggage (not part of the original tour package). This was our first tour with EU Holidays and I will definitely join EU Holidays for another tour again if it is led by Jia Fu.

Just completed our 10d grand train swiss tour with our wonderful tour leader (Ong Jia Fu aka Michael). He is definitely one of the most experienced and well- thought tour guide i ever seen. As we only joined the land tour and flew in earlier, he made the effort to contact us prior to our flight to answer any qns that we may have. Its not easy for a tour guide to plan everything beforehand esp with all the train rides and timing to make the whole trip smooth. This trip do not include any coaches or any other local guides. He self-handedly brief us on all the local attractions and history! At all times assuring us not to worry on the train timing and gave us ample time to take pictures/shopping/makan. Definitely will want to join tours guided by Jia Fu in the future and im sure the rest of the tour members share the same thoughts too. Will be sharing this good experience with friends! Well Done and thumbs up Jiafu!! Great selection of hotels/resorts by EU holidays (Rooms were quality, clean and comfortable). Unique train tour organised by EU holidays which is different from other group tours. It will be even better if theres additional stopover/ overnight in Bern for future itinerary.
