    Marlee was really caring and comforting. She recommended fantastic places to eat. She was easy to talk to if I had a problem. She had a lot of enthusiasm and passion for this tour.

    Working with Bus2Alps was awesome and Tyler was amazing at keeping everyone on the trip informed about what was going on, but also was a blast to be with!

    Bus2Alps made everything easier for us on our trips. I wouldn't have done half the things I did if it wasn't for them. They had everything organized and had optional activities for us to choose from. I'm thankful that Bus2Alps existed while I was abroad.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Does the booking have free cancellation?

      No there isn't free cancellation. Usually once you pay the deposit this amount is forfeited if you cancel, or if it closer to your tour departure then higher cancellation penalties may apply.
      If you are worried that you may need to cancel due to unforeseen reasons, please take out comprehensive travel insurance which will reimburse you in case of emergency and you are no longer able to take your trip.

    • Will this tour accept travelers over 40 years old?

      Yes this tour accepts travelers over the age of 40. However please keep in mind that Bus2Alps specializes in organizing tours for American college students, so your fellow travellers will be in their early twenties. If you are fine with that you can join the tour.

    • Hello! I was wondering if it was at all possible to "meet up" with the tour a few days after the given start date. Thank you!

      Hi there,
      Yes you can join the tour later in a different city than the departure city, but please keep in mind that this is already a package price so the cost will not be amended.
      Thanks very much.
