    4.5 - Excellent

    We think the tour of Switzerland using the train system is the best way to see the beauty of the country. It's efficient and faster and more direct than driving or taking a bus. Our guide, Stephanie Bahr was outstanding and made the tour a great and informative experience. Our group of 48 was a very workable size and composed of wonderful people from the US, Australia, New Zealand and England. The pleasant disposition of all of them was an additional highlight of this trip. Trafalgar does a very thorough job organizing the entire experience.
