          Simply The Best!
          When I began planning our trip (myself and two young adult daughters) I spent countless hours looking for the BEST private tour to take us to the hidden spots that we wouldn’t be able to find on our own. After my extended research I knew I had to book the tour with MySwissPanorama. Communication with their team prior to our tour was excellent. All of my emails were answered promptly. Our tour guide, Marc, arrived promptly at our hotel (with some yummy surprises) to begin our day. After just a few minutes with him, he felt like an old friend. Marc took us to the most incredible and beautiful locations. We never would have been able to find these on our own. Throughout the day the word “magical” kept coming into our minds. We loved every minute of our tour including the traditional Swiss picnic that Marc prepared for us, the stop at the BEST chocolate factory (not the one you can get in the US), hidden giant waterfalls, quaint villages, pristine lakes and gorgeous countrysides. Thanks to Marc, this is a day that we will remember forever and it made our first trip to Switzerland MAGICAL. When we return to Switzerland in the future, we plan on scheduling multiple days with Marc. It’s really THAT good! SIMPLY THE BEST! Thank you to Marc and the MySwissPanorama team.

          Amazing Experience!
          My husband and I decided to travel to Switzerland in May for our anniversary in July for 4 days. In order to maximize our time, we decided to take a private tour to learn about and see as much of the country in a short period of time. Upon researching tour companies in Switzerland, I knew this company offered exactly what we were looking for. I originally attempted to book this tour through Viator, but it was rejected due to lack of availability. (The Taylor Swift concert was in Zurich during this time period, which we were also attending.) I reached out directly to Marc on Instagram and to their booking agent, and was able to book a customized private tour directly with the company. (Our tour was titled "Flavors of Switzerland: Culinary Delights, Mountain Villages, and Hidden Natural Wonders".)They were able to accommodate us on a Sunday instead of a Monday with one of their founders, Joshua. Joshua was so personable, flexible, and informative. He picked us up from our hotel in Zurich and took us to the canton of Uri. We saw many beautiful sights! We went on a hike, drove through Klausen pass, had an outdoor barbeque, and visited a chocolate shop. It is a day we will never forget. We absolutely loved spending the day with Joshua (it felt like traveling with a friend!) and seeing this stunning country. If you are on the fence about booking this due to expense, I will assure you it's worth it. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is traveling to Switzerland. We had such an excellent experience. Even though it was drizzling and cloudy most of the day, it was one of our best days!

          This tour was magical!
          Loved this tour of the Bernese Oberland. The sights were stunningly beautiful and you couldn’t ask for a better tour guide than Manuel. We are older and he made everything easier for us. We saw so much more than we ever could have seen on our own. Highlights were the village of Gimmelwald and the raclette picnic on the shore of Lake Brienz, but all of it was wonderful. Highly recommended!

          Marc was the BEST!
          Marc was the most incredibly tour guide! He was incredibly attentive to all of our needs, but also insanely personable! He was so easy to talk to and fantastic to have as a guide, he was open to telling stories and showing us around beautiful Switzerland! His hospitality was off the charts, and he prepared the loveliest Swiss picnic under the beautiful view of a waterfall! He truly knows all of the amazing places here near Zurich, I highly recommend booking this tour for your next trip to Switzerland!

          This tour is a must!
          We did a private tour with Manuel, he was amazing. So kind, knowledgeable, accomadating and his English was perfect. If you are looking to book a tour while in Switzerland, I would highly recommend this day trip and definately with Manuel.

          An Amazing Day Enjoyed By All!
          Absolutely recommend! I was trying to figure out how to get from Basel to our remote hotel in Brienz with older people in my group. I stumbled upon a tour I thought could work. They said they could not make that tour work, but could do the Best of Bernese Alps tour instead. My family absolutely loved this tour and Marc. Like someone else mentioned, the drive is so smooth that some fell asleep! He was very understanding of their capabilities and our desires of this tour. We were taken to some of the most beautiful areas - Lauterbrunnen being my favorite! Could not get enough of the waterfalls, mountain valleys, snow capped mountains, and blue water in the streams! Another highlight of this tour was the raclette cheese. It was so good!! He mentioned he traditionally has it over potatoes, which inspired us to find and have for lunch at a restaurant the next day! He also inspired us to get some chocolate at our next stop in Lucerne. Yes, it is an expensive tour, but we found it worth it for all that we saw and the information we received during the tour. We really learned about Switzerland in a great way! Thank you Marc for a wonderful day in Switzerland!

          Excellent Private Tour, highly recommend
          I had given up on finding a good tour to plan our entire family trip (9days) to Switzerland for first time after multiple failed attempts to communicate with 3 different companies (such slow response/no response, no direct answers to my questions etc). I stomped upon on Myswisspanaroma’s day tours on TripAdvisor. From the initial request for info to finalized booking were so smooth. Noomi was super responsive and helpful from the beginning throughout the planning process. One of the owners Joshua even called me to confirm one of the booking when I expressed urgency. They provided all necessary info for out our entire trip from arrive at the airport to depart Zurich. We booked a 9 day Switzerland tour from Zurich all the way down to Zermatt, and even visited Lichtenstein towards end of our trip. We had 4 different guides Simon (day trip in Zurich), Fabian (day trip to private Swiss farm), Marc (who is one the owners took us to Lichtenstein), and Manuel (accompanied us multiple days to different locations). All of them are professional, knowledgeable and unique personalities. We had a great time to see all the beautiful spots including some hidden spots that only locals would know. My kids (8, 4) had so much fun and can’t stop talk about it. Thank you again for the wonderful experience in Switzerland, we will definitely return again. Anyone who is looking for a great private tour experience should contact Myswisspanorama without any hesitation! Highly recommend!

          Magical private tour away from crowds
          Absolutely outstanding experience with MySwissPanorama and our fantastic guide, Achim! From the moment we were whisked away from Zurich, we were immersed in the magical beauty of Switzerland's lakes and mountains. Achim's deep knowledge and passion for the region shone through as he shared fascinating insights and stories at every turn. The highlight of our tour was a private lunch by a stunning waterfall, away from the crowds, where we could truly relax and soak in the natural beauty. Achim's attentiveness and accommodating nature made the day even more special. This tour was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Highly recommend!

          Day trip from Zurich
          Manuel took us for a day trip to areas around Zurich that were amazingly scenic and off the beaten path. We would not have found these spots on our own and they were very non touristy. He curated our experience exactly how we wanted it and had a great sense of what we would like to see. We would for sure recommend him to anyone on a first time trip to Zurich or Switzerland in general - he knows the entire country !

          Picturesque, a family core memory
          Very friendly, accommodating tourist guide (Manuel) and very prompt. It was an easy tour for us family of 5 with teenagers. The places were absolutely amazing! The Swiss light lunch was good and refreshing with a view of the lake. Happy to share the same to our friends when they visit Switzerland. Definitely one of our family core memories.
