A fantastic day hike in the Alps that our family will remember always. Hiking is a fantastic way to experience the natural beauty of the mountains, waterfalls and flowers. The outdoor lunch at a farm with delicious, authentic Swiss food—and friendly dairy cows was another

We can't say enough good things about our day! Our guides, Dave and Peter, were unbelievably knowledgeable and personable. Everything about the day was well-organized, so all the guesswork was removed for us. We even got to stop at a cafe for a "gipfel" before we started out.
