Private Tours & Luxury Holiday In Switzerland

Switzerland is an enticing option for a holiday getaway. A trip to Switzerland is like a trip to heaven on Earth. Switzerland, with its towering snow-capped mountains, glaciers, lush valleys, and pristine lakes, is undeniably one of Europe’s most picture-perfect destinations, especially since the country is home to an advanced network of scenic trains, cable cars, steamer boats, gondolas, and cogwheel trains, making the country’s vast natural playground accessible year-round.

Switzerland is not only rich in natural beauty but also in cultural attractions, a fusion of neighbouring countries’ cultures with a dash of its own unique traditions. The Montreux Jazz Festival, the International Balloon Festival, and the Festichoc are just a few of the world-famous events held in Switzerland. You can also explore world-class museums that are dedicated to history (Bellinzona’s Fortresses, the Swiss National Museum), art (Zentrum Paul Klee, Kunstmuseum Basel), culture (The Olympic Museum, Ballenberg Open-Air Museum), and even food (Lindt Home of Chocolate, La Maison du Gruyere). There’s so much to explore in this small country that will pique your curiosity in indelible ways.

Geneva

It is no exaggeration to say that Geneva, Switzerland, is one of the greenest cities in all of Europe, thanks to its abundance of beautiful parks, gardens, and vistas of the nearby Swiss Alps. You can take a relaxed boat ride on Lake Geneva, one of Europe’s biggest lakes. If you wish to get a feel for the city’s charm, a good place to start is in Old Town, where you’ll find a wealth of Roman relics, as well as several cafes, shops, and historical monuments, all set against a backdrop of brightly coloured homes coated in red tiles. Or, you could even spend some time in Switzerland building your very own watch or clock and then bring it back as a souvenir.

Zermatt & Matterhorn

Zermatt, Europe’s highest ski resort, offers ideal skiing with miles of pistes, terrific slopes, sun, and snow, making it an excellent terrain for skiers of all skill levels. Those who visit Switzerland in the off-winter season can still find plenty of scenic vantage points where they can take in views of the Alps, lush meadows, and colourful flowers.

Besides snow activities, the Matterhorn is also a major attraction. The Matterhorn, Europe’s most recognisable peak at 4,478 metres, towers over the stunning Alpine scenery. It is a haven for those who appreciate nature and wish to escape the bustle of city life. There is no other natural spectacle in Zermatt quite like the Matterhorn, with its symmetrical pyramidal shape, its stony tooth that reaches for the sky, and the light reflections of the surrounding Stellisee.

St Moritz

St. Moritz, a modern city, surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, is the ideal spot to unwind during the colder months. At an altitude of 1822 metres above sea level, the famed Alpine village not only offers visitors numerous unique holiday experiences and activities but also provides more opportunities to enjoy the snow than nearly any other resort. Many of St. Moritz’s cultural landmarks and popular establishments have a metropolitan flavour, giving the town an urbane air. Sport, culture, wellness, and upscale gastronomic experiences await in the Alpine region. Due to the abundance of things to do, this area is wonderful to explore not only in the winter but also in the spring and summer.

Lucerne

The city of Lucerne, which is in the heart of Switzerland, is incredibly beautiful, culturally rich, and historically significant. The city is one of the few in Switzerland to have preserved its mediaeval architecture while still incorporating some modern touches. Lucerne is an excellent starting point for many trips to central Switzerland’s highlights. A hike up either the Pilatus or the Rigi, popularly known as the queen of mountains, is an absolute must if you find yourself in the Lucerne area. Similarly, trips to the Bürgenstock, the Stanserhorn, or a steamboat cruise on Lake Lucerne, with its numerous bends and arms, are unquestionably no less worthwhile.

FAQs for Switzerland Tours

Switzerland is a year-round destination with four distinct seasons, each offering unique beauty and activities. Here’s a quick seasonal guide to help you decide when to visit:

  • Autumn: During September to November, the arrival of autumn paints the forests in golden hues while the mountaintops begin to sparkle with the first snow, making it a stunning time to visit.
  • Winter: Spanning from December to March, is perfect for those keen on winter sports, with some regions even extending these activities beyond the traditional winter months.
  • Spring: Spanning from March to May, the landscape bursts into life with Alpine flowers and blooming trees, and it’s also when cows are led to the pastures. This season is ideal for hiking and outdoor adventures.
  • Summer: June to August offers warm, comfortable weather ideal for exploring, and thanks to the high altitude, the air remains refreshingly free from humidity.

Each season caters to different preferences in landscapes and activities. If you are undecided on the season, let our Travel Specialist recommend the best time for your visit based on what you enjoy most.

We recommend spending 8 to 10 days to explore the main attractions Switzerland has to offer. If you’re interested in discovering less-travelled areas, consider extending your trip by 3 to 6 days, depending on the specific route and region you choose.

The Swiss Alps and snow-capped mountains are highlights that are commonly included in our customized Switzerland Tour Packages. While spending a night or two at high altitudes is a popular experience—particularly above 2,500 meters—there is always the possibility, though uncommon, risk of experiencing symptoms of altitude sickness. These symptoms can include headaches, lethargy, insomnia, dizziness, nausea, and loss of appetite, which result from changes in oxygen levels and air pressure at high elevations.

If your itinerary includes destinations at higher altitudes, our Travel Specialist will strategically plan your ascent to ensure your body has sufficient time to acclimatize, thereby minimizing the risk of altitude sickness.

It’s important to respect local culture and customs when visiting Switzerland. Here are some guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Punctuality is highly valued, so it is important to be on time. It is also worth noting that the train and transport system schedules runs on the dot, hence it is always good to be early.
  • Jaywalking is prohibited, and police may issue on-the-spot fines if you’re caught.
  • Sundays are considered sacred; therefore, avoid requesting services like laundry on this day. Do also note that shops are also closed on Sundays.
  • Keep your voice down in restaurants and on trains, as speaking loudly is generally frowned upon.

Switzerland has four official languages: German, French, Italian, and Romansh. While English is not an official language, many people, especially those working in restaurants and hotels, are proficient in English and will be able to assist you with your requirements.
