    Loved the village of Appenzell! And of course the Jungfrau annd nearby Trummelbach waterfall were spectacular. Also enjoyed the Alphorn maker. The Schweizerhof hotel in Bern was pretty special! Unfortunately it meant the next hotel in Wengen was a big disappointment. Our guide, Mel was extremely knowledgeable and very easy to listen to… she didn’t overload us with information, She interacted well with all the guests. So many great memories from the trip.

    The tour was simply amazing!!! The small group of 18 experienced seeing Switzerland by luxury van, boats, trains, cog wheel trains and tram. Plus we got the experience to hike the mountains, if we chose to.. MOST important, Melinda, our Tour Guide, was FABULOUS!!! Melinda had us doing things different from the itinerary, like picning on lake shores, in villages, etc. I highly recommend Back Road Tours and will DEFINATELY be back!!! Thank you!

    Great Tour showing a good cross section through the Switzerland countryside, alps and townships. All was well organized, and our tour guide was super. Two sad points, the three Blue-Road hosted group dinners were a bit mediocre and our last hotel in Wengen was a bit rundown with no views.
