I had a wonderful experience with Private Tours Switzerland in the Jungfrau Region, Bernese Alps in Switzerland. Private Tours Switzerland created an unforgettable journey through the stunning scenery and showed us some beautiful places in Lauterbrunnen and Mürren. I decided to book a private tour as these often offer a more personal and intimate experience. I enjoyed exploring the scenic beauty, seeing the waterfalls and some parts of Lauterbrunnen and I also really enjoyed the charm of Mürren and Gimmelwald. The personal attention and knowledge of Marc helped me to fully appreciate the breathtaking beauty of the Swiss Alps. It was a magical day and I would recommend Private Tours Switzerland to anyone looking for an unforgettable Swiss adventure. And thank you again for the swiss raclette with the best view on Mount Eiger.

What trip to Bern would be complete without a visit to the Bear Park, home to the city’s beloved mascot, the bear. 

As you enter the park, you’ll be greeted by spacious enclosures where these majestic creatures roam freely in a naturalistic habitat along the banks of the Aare River. 

Watch in awe as the bears play, forage, and swim, exhibiting their natural behaviors in a serene environment designed to mimic their wild surroundings. Learn about the significance of bears in Bernese culture and history, dating back to the city’s founding legend. 

Had a wonderful day with Marc as we toured hidden gems. Each location was beautiful and we had perfect views and hikes tailored for our family of 5. He was knowledgeable on the area and flexible in changing to meet whatever we were wanting. We had a traditional picnic in the base of a lovely mountain and hiked to several waterfalls. No one else on the trail. I would highly recommend if you like to be off the beaten path.
