This is the ideal private luxury tour of Switzerland for travelers wanting to experience the absolute best of Swiss culture, cuisine and scenic attractions.

Begin in Zurich, one of Europe’s most sophisticated cities. During flexible private touring, see the highlights of the Old Town, sample local culinary specialties, and tour museums and other cultural attractions according to your interests, such as the Kunsthaus, Landesmuseum (Swiss National Museum), gallery districts, and churches with stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall and Sigmar Polke.

Continue to Lucerne, a picture-perfect Swiss town on the shore of Lake Lucerne. With your private guide, explore the highlights of the Old Town and, if desired, also visit the Swiss Transport Museum. One day, enjoy a privately guided excursion in the region. Take a cruise across Lake Lucerne, passing lakeside farmhouses and small villages clustered at the bottom of high peaks. Then, take a cog railway up iconic Mount Pilatus for panoramic views over the lake and mountains, and perhaps opt for hiking and other outdoor adventures in the fresh mountain air.

Next, transfer to Interlaken. En route, stop in Emmental to tour a cheese making facility. Also visit Bern, the beautiful capital of Switzerland, for a private tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town.

In Interlaken, the gateway to the dramatic mountain landscapes of the Berner Oberland, stay two nights at the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa, an excellent and historic resort hotel. Enjoy a privately guided excursion into the Swiss Alps aboard mountain trains. On arrival at Jungfraujoch, known as the “Top of Europe” (elevation 11,388 feet), see enormous glaciers, impressive Alpine peaks such as the Eiger, and verdant valleys far below. Throughout the journey, stop in villages such as Wengen and Grindelwald to hike or take in the spectacular views as you please.

Next, enjoy a scenic train ride along a portion of the renowned Glacier Express line to Zermatt, home of the iconic Matterhorn. Tour the historic wooden buildings in the town center, and visit the Matterhorn Museum to learn about the traditional local lifestyle and the human drama surrounding the mountain that looms over the region. Then, board a cog railway up to Gornergrat, the best place to take in views of the majestic Matterhorn, as well as the glaciers, mountain valleys and villages below.

Next, transfer to Lausanne and the beautiful Lake Geneva region for two nights at one of Switzerland’s most luxurious lakeside resort hotels. During flexible private touring, visit the Lavaux wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 800-year-old terraced vineyards that skirt the edge of Lake Geneva and offer dramatic views of the Alps. Sample Chasselas and other delicious local varietals in Lavaux cellars, and perhaps enjoy a gourmet meal at one of the finest restaurants in Switzerland. Also, tour Chateau de Chillon, a well-preserved castle on a small island in the lake that offers evocative insights into the daily life of medieval aristocracy. Alternatively, take a private excursion to the atmospheric hill town of Gruyeres to visit a local cheese maker to learn about and taste the region’s renowned Gruyere cheese, and perhaps visit the nearby factory of one of Switzerland’s premier chocolate makers.

This tour can easily be extended to include additional time or destinations.
