Excellent experience with Pete Cummins
My wife and I booked this tour day before our departure back to US and it was indeed the “cherry on top” of our experience in Switzerland. Pete was an excellent guide who provided us undivided attention and helped stay off the tourist trails which allowed us to obtain truly amazing hiking experience and great authentic lunch with a beautiful view. I highly recommend Pete as your guide.

Magical Day in the Mountains
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 highlight of the day. Our guide Pete was terrific!

Oct 2018 • Couples
I cannot say enough about this experience, everything was just perfect. Our guide Andrea injected us with his love for the mountains. He took us into a local experience. The trails were mesmerizing!!!! Only a few locals passed by. When we take tours we want to make sure we stay away from the "touristic experience" instead we look for local experience and this hike was exactly that!!

Heart of The Alps
The Heart of the Alps with our guide Peter was more than just a hike. He was very knowledgeable and absolutely made sure that we were having the best time possible. Lunch at the Alpine restaurant was simply fabulous. I definitely would use Echo Trails on my next trip to Switzerland.

Highlight of our vacation
Jul 2018 • Friends
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. Thanks for a great time :)

Mountain hike
Jul 2018 • Family
This is a great hike for all fitness levels. The personal attention and service was terrific. The guides met us at the train station in Lucerne. The entire day from train stations to the mountain went smoothly. A coffee and croissant at the top of the mountain before the hike began was even included. Peter and Dave were very knowledgeable about the area and Switzerland. We had a group of 7 with age range from 54 - 20. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

An amazing hike in the Heart of the Alps
Jun 2018 • Family
It was the most amazing experience to be walking/hiking in the Heart of the Alps, surrounded by mountains towering over us, and cows wearing bells. My two adult daughters and I began our journey from Zurich on the 7:04 train. Our guide, Pete, met us as planned in Luzern, then we journeyed by train, bus and cable car up to Furenalp at 1850 m. After a coffee, croissant, and chance to soak in the beauty of the Alps, we began our descent of 850 m over 12 km. I had to keep pinching myself to believe I was really there! Our guide Pete was excellent! We set the pace and he shared his extensive Swiss historical knowledge. I can't recommended this particular tour enough. Our only regret was not ordering lunch at the Staefeli Alpine restaurant. The food looked excellent, but we were concerned about taking too much time because we had to catch a flight out of Zurich in the evening. Hopefully we'll make it back someday for a different Echo Trails tour.

Dear Puppy, It's great to hear you enjoyed your In the Heart of the Alps tour experience with Pete as your guide. The Staefeli restaurant has been there for over 40 years and expect to still be there when you return. We hope it will be sooner than later. Wishing you continued safe and happy Trails. With best regards, René Welti Owner
