Swiss Escape

Your escape to Switzerland begins in the dynamic city of Zürich, where you’ll meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers for a welcome dinner with wine served at your hotel. Your stay in Zürich includes an orientation of the Old Town. Your first stop on your guided tour of Switzerland is the picturesque, watch-making town of Biel, also called Bienne, at the foot of the Jura Mountains. You’ll take a scenic drive to lakeside Neuchâtel with its impressive castle and medieval cathedral. Stroll along the lake promenade before venturing to Montreux—situated on the shores of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, and famous for its annual jazz festival.

Your escorted tour of Switzerland includes a visit to the stately capital of Berne. Enjoy a guided tour of the city’s Bear Park, a panoramic view from the Rose Garden, and see the Old Town’s clock tower with its painted figures, and ornate, flowered-adorned fountains. In lovely Lucerne, be captivated by the Lion Monument, dedicated to the fallen Swiss Guards of the French Revolution, as well as the ornate patrician houses of the Old Town. Cross the famous covered Chapel Bridge to Lucerne’s Jesuit church. Drive through the magnificent Swiss Alps via the famous St. Gotthard tunnel to the Italian-speaking area of Switzerland, home to the lakeside resort of Lugano. Enjoy a full day to relax or explore this beautiful setting, before a wonderful farewell dinner on your last night in Switzerland. The wonderful memories of your Swiss Escape are made all the sweeter by the absence of high-season crowds on your stunning Switzerland escorted vacation.
