We were on the alpine tour to Switzerland leaving 25/3/ 22. We had great fun and enjoyment , thanks to the great tour manger WANG JIAFU . He was so meticulous in the planning of the trip and also gave us some history of Switzerland . He was so careful that I caught him preparing for our next event while we were busy shopping and eating . His time balances for the public train was superb.He was so kind that when my husband and I wanted to go back hotel earlier he volunteered to take us back by train first while the others were shopping . However we turned down his good offer.I will definitely go with EU holidays for future trips esp when JIAFU leads you will feel so SAFE.
