Assemble at the airport and depart for Zurich, Switzerland’s financial centre.
Upon arrival, drive to St. Moritz, one of the world’s most famous holiday resort at an elevation of 1856m. St. Moritz first became famous due to its mineral springs, which were discovered some 3,000 years ago, and established the town as a summer spa resort early on. Embark on an orientation tour of the city with your tour manager and view the unique Leaning Tower of St. Mortiz, which is vying for the title of the ‘most inclined tower in Europe'. Note: St. Moritz will be replaced with Davos if hotel accommodation is not available and the Glacier Express ride will begin from Davos on the following day.
Get set for an incredible ride onboard the Glacier Express – the world’s most famous panorama train. Travel in comfort as you traverse from the eastern to western Swiss Alps by train, a scenic 8-hour journey from St. Moritz to Zermatt. The route brings you through 91 tunnels and across 291 bridges, bringing you panoramic views of snow -capped mountains, breathtaking rivers, peaceful alpine pastures, magical castles, and charming villages. You will then enjoy a three-course lunch onboard the train. Arrive in Zermatt, where you will spend the night.
After breakfast, board the world’s first fully electrified cog railway – the Gornergrat Bahn – which starts from the village centre in Zermatt, through verdant forests and lovely meadows up to the Gornergat (3,089m). Here, you’ll find Switzerland’s highest hotel, the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat. From the observation platform, you’ll be treated to magnificent views of the Monte Rosa massif with Switzerland’s highest peak (Dufourspitze, 4,634 m); the second-largest glacier in the Alps, the Gorner Glacier; and a total of 29 mountains above 4,000 m, including the Matterhorn in all its glory. Afterwards, continue your journey down to Rotenboden station for a 15-minute gentle downhill trek that leads you to the lake of Riffelsee (2,757m). The placid waters of the lake reflect the majestic and jagged Matterhorn, one of nature’s finest spectacles. In the afternoon, visit the Matterhorn Museum for a deeper insight into the history and development of Zermatt. Note: The walk to Riffelsee Lake depends on the conditions on the ground, if it is covered with thick snow, it is not possible to walk to the lake.
Travel to Saas-Fee by bus, a resort village that is also known as ‘’The Pearl of the Alps’’. Located at an altitude of 1800m above sea level and surrounded by 13 Travel to Saas-Fee by bus, a resort village that is also known as ‘’The Pearl of the Alps’’. Located at an altitude of 1800m above sea level and surrounded by 13 four-thousand-metre peaks, its breathtaking landscape of beautiful mountains and glaciers is simply amazing to behold. Go for a ride on Metro Alpin, the highest underground train in the world to reach the Mittelallalin (3456m), a summit on one of the most famous peaks of all, The Allalinhorn (4027m). Take a breather as you sip a cup of coffee or enjoy a glass of champagne at the highest revolving restaurant in the world, 3,500m above sea level. Aside from the sumptuous cuisine, Restaurant Allalin offers glorious views of seemingly endless mountain peaks that transforms as the restaurant revolves 360-degrees hourly. After which, get your hearts and cameras ready for an endearing animal encounter where you’ll get the chance to feed the marmots of Saas-Fee. Marmots are a protected species in Saas-Fee with no natural predators, thus they are extremely friendly to the point where you can feed them and even pat them. Note: Feeding of Marmots is only available starting end-April 2020 to mid-October 2020. There will be no replacement for departure outside this timing. Marmots are wild animals, there is no guarantee of seeing them despite the high chances of seeing it.
Spend the morning free at leisure to explore on your own, or you may wish to join an optional glacier walking tour with a guide to enjoy the marvellous nature that Saas-Fee has to offer! Not to worry, professional equipment will be provided, and the terrain is pretty flat so it won't be too strenuous. In the afternoon, visit Barryland – home to the famous St. Bernard dogs! You’ll get to explore the history of the Swiss national dog, watch the dogs frolic around in the park grounds, stroke a St. Bernard and even have a picture taken with them! Thereafter, travel to Montreux to rest for the night. Optional: Glacier Walking Tour
Enjoy the best leg of the Golden Pass Line, which starts with the Mediterranean ambience of Montreux before the train begins its climb above the lake and passes through a tunnel. Coming out at the other end, you’ll find yourself among alpine forests, bubbling mountain springs and picturesque mountain villages. The train then continues to Zweisimmen, transporting you through fairy-tale landscapes. After which, board the scenic cruise ride on the clear, blue waters of Lake Thun, the largest lake in the Bernese Oberland entirely located in the Canton of Bern. Admire stunning vistas of green meadows, forests, majestic alps as well as the eternally white peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau beyond. Continue on your journey by train from Interlaken up to Grindelwald – a well-known mountain village which lies at the foot of the iconic north face of Eiger Mountain. Enjoy a stroll along its picturesque street surrounded by towering mountains.
Spend the morning at leisure exploring on your own, or you may choose to join an optional excursion to ascend the famous ‘’Top of Europe’’ – Jungfraujoch. You will be able to explore the Ice Palace with its timeless sculptures, walk through the tunnel of Alpine Sensation and tread on the biggest glacier in Switzerland. Afterwards, hop on the Lucerne-Interlaken Express for an unforgettable journey right into the heart of Switzerland, Lucerne. This scenic ride takes you along the shores of crystal-clear lakes (no less than five!), past romantic waterfalls and over the magnificent Brünig mountain pass. After experiencing some of the most spectacular views the Swiss Alps have to offer through the large panoramic windows, you will arrive at your destination for the night. Optional: Jungfraujoch
Embark on an orientation tour of Lucerne with your tour manager. 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, which was discovered in 1872. Here, you’ll find glacial potholes that date back to the Ice Age. Continue on to Zurich, the lively city of Switzerland, and join an orientation tour to discover its fascinating attractions and sights. From its diverse cuisine to its historical highlights, Zurich has something for everyone. Drop by the Swiss National Museum, one of the most prominent art museums that encompass the cultural history of Europe. Afterwards, proceed to Zurich Airport for an overnight stay.
Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure till is time to transfer to the airport for your flight home.

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.
