    3.0 - Average

    1. Tour director Marco Nois made the tour with his stories, tips and personal attention to little details. 2. Swiss trains vary in comfort vastly eg. the Glacier Express, a highlight was arduous and most trying as it was a little long, 5 to 6 hrs ride with panoramic windows that offered NO shade screens to keep out the streaming, hot sun. The Glacier is a suana ride. Most of us were cooked to sunstroke tiredness. 3. Meals were good especially the paid dinner option at 20CHF at St. Moritz. 4. By end of week, we were all well-trained in luggage out, punctuality and saddle-sored. 5. Swiss trains are NOT the epitome in comfort. 6. Róoms in hotels vary from hostel-sized room of 2 small cots in Lucerne Ibis, and Zermatt. 7. Take Cosmos again, maybe will do more research on other alternatives.

      Can I prepay gratuities, tips, service charges etc?

      It is not necessary to pay gratuities, tips and service charges as you pay them according to how satisfied you were with the services. For restaurant services in Switzerland, a service charge is already included (approximately 15%), but you
      might round up the bill by the equivalent of a few Swiss Francs to show appreciation for good service. We recommend 1-2 CHF per person for a modest meal and 5-10 CHF for meals in higher class restaurants.We recommend tips be left in cash and not added to the credit card payment. For taxis, round up the fare to the nearest Franc. Tip hotel staff the equivalent of 1 CHF for room service. A few small denomination coins will be necessary for.
