Headliners

Small Group Tour – 16 People
My first encounter with the majestic country of Switzerland all started in 1996 as an LDS missionary. I lived all across the German Speaking parts of Switzerland, Southern Germany, and Western Austria. For two years I lived among the people, learning their language, their beautiful cities, their culture, and of course their breathtaking views! I returned home in 1998 and completed college at PSU only to hear the call of Switzerland to return. I began taking groups of family and friends on trips to Switzerland, sharing my love of this beautiful country. It was apparent after several of these trips I had found something that I loved to do. Watching large tour operators run their tours through Switzerland I knew there had to be a better way to share such a beautiful country. I began to offer small group tours.
