The development of COVID-19 surprises us all anew every day. De facto, we are currently unable to offer tours, be it because the travel restrictions prevent entry without quarantine, or because the season is now over and we cannot yet estimate the development for the winter.
We leave a look into the crystal ball to the others, we are preparing for 2021. We have developed a new type of offer: self-guided tours.
Individual, safe and without other guests - important attributes when traveling in COVID19 times.
For this reason, self-guided tours can be booked with us immediately so that you can travel without other guests.Self-guided tours are available from all starting points in Switzerland for the following destinations:
-Glacier Express train - one day round trip
-Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe
-Mount Rigi round trip
-Schilthorn (Piz Gloria) - James Bond film location
-Zermatt and Mt. Gornergrat - Matterhorn area
-Mount Titlis glacier world
With these self-guided tours, you benefit from our discounts when it comes to purchasing tickets. And you benefit from a manual that guides you to the destination and back with insider tips at any time. Simply in such a way that you can travel safely and healthily despite all the circumstances.
All information available on our website:

If you travel by car from Zurich to Bern, you need at least 1 hour 30 minutes to travel on the motorway. By train, you arrive at the destination within 58 minutes. Without traffic jam. Without waiting time.
For this reason, we have decided that all private tours at SwissTravelGuide will be executed with public transport. This allows us to accompany guests in one day from Zurich to Zermatt to the Mount Matterhorn, to be back in Zurich the same evening. By car, the arrival and return journey alone would take 8 hours.
Whenever we arrive by train - we are right in the center. For the city tours we use the local system of transport such as tram (light rail) and bus, because many cities in Switzerland have traffic-free zones and most attractions can not be reached by car.
On the train our guests have more space than in a car. The changing landscape is easier to observe from the train than from a concrete motorway. With the intercity trains we often have the opportunity to drink something in the restaurant coach and there are clean toilettes available at all times. The tour guide can discuss with you without distraction during the train ride. In addition, with the choice of public transport, we can keep the schedule to the minute. That's why we can calculate the duration of a private tour, like from Basel to Jungfraujoch or to Lucerne, at any time.
