Your Switzerland Trip Begins Here
You may think you know what Switzerland’s about: mountains, trains, chocolate, cheese…. And it’s easy enough to find those things on your own—but only if you want the clichéd version. Planning your trip through a savvy local fixer makes a world of difference: Instead of the well-known Glacier Express, you’ll get a local train route that’s even more beautiful. Rather than negotiate the crowds at Chateau de Chillon, dine in a castle that’s all yours for the evening. Instead of buying Toblerone at the duty-free, take a workshop at the small factory that produces the chocolate found at Swiss embassies around the world. Too many travelers to Switzerland check off the obvious hit list of the country’s delights, never knowing that they’re missing fantastic hidden gems of modern architecture, a vibrant textiles and embroidery scene with a centuries-long history, and villages where residents still eschew electricity and modern plumbing. Wendy has sussed out the Switzerland travel planners with the connections to make these and many other experiences possible, strategically combining travel via road and rail so that you see the most authentic sights, and procuring VIP tickets for the country’s famous jazz and film festivals.
