Enjoy fantastic views of the Swiss Plateau, the Black Forest, the Vosges Mountains, and the Alps from the Queen of the Mountains. After which, continue your Lucerne city tour. See 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. 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.
Bask in the nature of the Bernese Oberland region with its picture-perfect landscapes accentuated by countless mountain peaks and glistening lakes. Enjoy the morning free at leisure for some shopping or sightseeing at your pleasure. You may wish to take part in an optional sledging activity, where you board a specially designed Snow Bus for a comfortable ride up to Mt. Bussalp.

This well-known panoramic train in Switzerland whizzes past a range of rivers, clear mountain lakes and waterfalls. Stop off at the glitzy resort village of Gstaad for a brief wander or a meal before re-boarding for the final part of the journey. The trip comes to an end when the train arrives in Montreux, on the shores of Lake Geneva.
The journey from Montreux to Brig begins with a memorable visit to Chillon Castle, a splendid medieval fortress on the water, and learn about its history dating back to the 12th century. Optional: Aletsch Glacier Note: Chillon Castle is closed on every Monday, 25th December, and 1st January.

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.
