        Beautiful Historic Hike
        David was a fantastic guide for the Historic Trail hike from Lucern! He shared interesting stories of Swiss history and kept us all engaged, even 2 teenagers! The hike through the Swiss countryside was breathtaking. My favorite highlights were the stop at the mountain cheese producer and the visit to a chapel behind a castle in the mountains. I highly recommend this tour with David!

        Captivating hike through the Alps
        Ezra was an amazing guide through the vastness of the Alps! He met us at the Lucerne train station and kept us engaged from the moment we got picked up until the end of our time together. Ezra was super knowledgable and in sync with his surroundings, adding a whole new layer of depth to our hike. I so appreciated his attention to detail and commitment to making our hike amazing! Thanks so much!

        Stunning views, good people, great vacation.
        We have traveled to Europe many times, but this was the first trip we booked with a tour group and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience. There was no way we could have done so much in a limited time without ECHO’s scheduling expertise. The guides were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and simply delightful people. The entire experience was wonderful.

        This was an amazing trip in an amazing country. Incredible vistas, well planned activities, great accommodations and wonderful food. Everything was first class. The guides, Andrea, Marta and Andreas, were exceptional. They were very knowledgeable and friendly, always going the extra mile to make sure everyone was having a great time and that the trip was running smoothly. I would highly recommend this trip which is a great value.

        An incredible Day on Mt Rigi, Queen of the Alps.
        Our guide Ezra was a joy to be with. It is obvious that he thoroughly enjoys what he does and is passionate about the beauty of Switzerland. He is very knowledgeable but fun! My sister & I are in our late 60’s early 70’s so most likely slower than younger folks. Ezra was patient and gave us plenty of breaks. And the views!! Fantastic! We highly recommend this trip and others Echo offers. You will not be disappointed!

        10 STARS
        I Wish I Could Give it 10 Stars!!! It was the most amazing 2 weeks I have ever had. It far exceeded my expectations. The venues were amazing, the scheduling was spot on, the reserved 1st class train accommodations were out standing and of course Switzerland is beyond amazing. I can’t say enough about our guides. Our entire group just fell in love with them. I can’t imagine anyone could do more or a better job than they did. Most of us had tears in our eyes when we had to say good by. They make a great team. Again an amazing experience and you can be sure I will recommend Echo Rails and Trails to anyone that asks, I may even do it again👍😀.

        Spectacular Views
        Our private tour of the Alps was an incredible experience! Our guide, Livia, met us at the train station and led us on an excellent adventure tailored to our wishes. After a train ride and short bus ride, we ascended a mountain on a cable car. We hiked along trails, visited a cheese making farm and ate an authentic Swiss lunch surrounded by mountains. The scenery was unbelievable, from snow capped mountains to beautiful waterfalls. Livia was very accommodating and friendly, making our tour even more enjoyable!

        Walk through country side next to Lake Lucerne.
        Amazing views. Tour guide was fantastic. Very informative and helpful. Despite finishing the walk early, Ezra took us through "Old Town" and showed much of the history and area to help my wife and I understand the area.

        Journey of a Lifetime
        Embarking on the 12-day Grand Rail Tour of Switzerland from Lucerne to Zurich was an experience that transcended the boundaries of a typical vacation. The tour began in the charming city of Lucerne and set the stage for the adventure that lay ahead. The panoramic views from the trains were extraordinary with landscapes varying from beautiful valleys to towering peaks, each more breathtaking than the last. The journey through the iconic Swiss Alps was magnificent. Our guides were exceptional. They were multi-lingual (very proficient in English), very engaging, and provided local expert perspectives on the various sites, cities, and villages that we visited. They were flexible and provided some options for the various daily activities and handled all of the logistics (including luggage transfer, which was a huge plus!). In order to take full advantage of all of the sites and scenes you need to be in reasonably active shape and able to walk on average 10,000 steps per day (sometimes on hilly, uneven ground). Overall, this 12-day tour was an excellent way to experience all that Switzerland had to offer. The combination of stunning alpine scenery, world-famous trains, luxury accommodations, and expert guides made it a journey of a lifetime.

        Perfect Guided Hiking in the Engadine Valley of the Swiss Alps
        Thanks to Alpenwild and their first-rate guides, Louis and Sophie, for the fantastic hike from St. Moritz to Italy. I had never been to the Alps before, and I had never heard of villages like Soglio and Malaga, nor the Engadine Valley or Bregalia. Everything was spectacular and I couldn’t have asked for more from either Alpenwild, their guides or Switzerland itself. Well worth the money!!!

        Remarkable vacation through Switzerland with ECHO Rails & Trails
        I had an amazing trip. I’ve lived in both the Netherlands and France and traveled extensively, and this vacation to Switzerland stands out as one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I highly recommend ECHO Rails & Trails to take you there. My main goal was to travel by train, which is both exhilarating and challenging. It's exhilarating because Swiss trains cover a vast network, but it can be tricky to navigate, with various trains, platforms, and connections to consider. Luckily, the ECHO guides took care of all these details for us. The guides were all exceptional individuals living in Switzerland, fluent in English (among other languages), and fantastic travel companions. I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse modes of transportation, from regular trains to funiculars, buses, cog railways, and cable cars of all sizes. It's essential to be in good physical condition for this trip, as a lot of walking is involved. On average, we walked around 9,200 steps daily, totaling nearly 120,000 steps. During about half of our journey, we visited sites at altitudes ranging from 7,000 to 10,000 feet in the Alps, with our highest point reaching 11,710 feet. None of this was climbing, just walking/hiking, though some of the locations had rocky trails. This adventure was truly remarkable.

        Absolutely Wonderful
        If you have an interest in the seeing the iconic mountain sites in Switzerland and doing it by train, this is the tour for you. The activities were seamless and first class all the way. Luzern, St. Moritz, Andermatt, Zermatt, and Grindelwald. Wonderful hotels in these locations that provided for easy access to the top of the Alps. Never a line to stand in, never a missed connection, and great meals. The organization prior to the tour was good and our guides were top notch. You couldn't ask for better travel companions than our guides, Denise and Deb. No detail in this 12 days is left to chance. There is enough flexibility to allow for some individual preferences. I snuck in a swim in Lake Luzern and Lake St. Moritz. If you want to see Switzerland I can't think of a better way.

        Wonderful e bike tour and boat ride on Lake Lucerne with Livia
        My wife and I were lucky enough to do this amazing e bike tour of Lake Lucerne and surrounding area with Livia. Livia was prompt and professional. She contacted us beforehand, giving us a preview of the day and addressing any concerns. She showed up early and guided us safely through the day. She is a charming person and has a wealth of knowledge about Switzerland and the Lucerne area. We had an absolutely wonderful day and can recommend her without hesitation. She is a credit to Echo tours and another example of the excellent guides they employ.

        The Most Amazing Views You’ll Ever See
        My wife and I just completed the 8 day Jungfrau region hiking tour. Our guide John was very helpful and knowledgeable about the various trails that were suggested by the tour company. He answered all of our questions about the hike and even a few other general questions about Switzerland. We were very grateful for everything that he went over with us. We were much more confident in our Swiss hiking and transportation knowledge after the first day. The accommodations that Echo chose were amazing as well. Each hotel that was booked had great rooms, service and the most amazing views. We kept sending photos of the views from our balcony to our friends back home. All the hikes chosen were great but the hiking near Murren was our favorite. The luggage transportation was super convenient and I would definitely recommend booking with Echo if you’ve never been to Switzerland or hiked there before. Would give 6 stars if I could!

      My wife and I had a wonderful day with Luca in Zermat. We went up the Gornergrat and hiked down. He was attentive to our physical abilities and selected routes that were appropriate . He was fun to be with and informative about local and Swiss history. We also had a great lunch. Overall we couldn’t be happier with our day with him and would recommend him and Echo tours without hesitation.

      Our family had a great time on this tour. Pete was wonderful!! He communicated with me a couple days before. He was on time, had a plan. We got off the train and he took us away from the crowd immediately. We were the only ones up at the viewing platform for at least 15 minutes. He took us through the visitor center, and then took us in a nice hike down to the next train stop. We got back on the train, stopped at the next stop and he took us on a nice easy hike. We ended at a wonderful restaurant with live music. He made sure we got a table (he knows everyone!!) and then he left. Highly recommend this tour if you don’t want to think about what to do and where to go. Pete did it all for us and made it a relaxing, beautiful day.

      Our day trip with Jack was an absolute blast. He was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the routes and hikes we wanted to take. Jack was very courteous and patient with us as we we’re trying to find our way through Zermatt and its surroundings. It was so helpful to have someone so fit for the job and accomplish so much in one day. We took best shots of the Matterhorn and other 4K+ peaks. If you’re English speaking and looking for a seasoned guide ask for Jack! You rock, thanks buddy!

      We were lucky to have Rene as our guide on our three day guided tour! We were able to see a lot of what Switzerland had to offer, without feeling rushed. He allowed us to customize our hikes in Gornergrat and see the beautiful Matterhorn! We also got to ride on the Glacier Express and take a cruise on Lake Lucerne. Rene made us feel super comfortable, relaxed, and safe. We didn't have to think or stress about anything, especially train times and transfers because Rene had it all handled which was so helpful! We learned so much about Switzerland from him and we never would have had such a smooth trip without Rene and Echo! We would highly recommend a guided tour with them. We can't wait to come back and experience a different tour!
