You can do this trip on your own at your own pace, no need to go on this overpriced and very poorly organized excursion. They are not very accommodating to the handicapped visitors, and be careful about booking in advance! They do not allow any...More

cities to visit between Zürich and Geneva (5 Replies)
Hello, This is my first trip to Switzerland and I will be traveling with my siblings. We will reach Zürich at 11.7.08 and fly back to UK from Geneva at 18.7.08. We would like to see various view of Switzerland, from big city to the nature. Other than that, we are thinking of taking one of the mountain train and choose one day for easy hiking, which we are not those hiking-lovers but we do like to walk in the nature. Can you guys please advice on our itinerary? Here are some...More

Hi NG, Your plan looks pretty good! I'm hoping that your base for 12 & 13 July is Luzern, 14 & 15 July is in the Berner Oberland, and 16-18 July is a town on Lake Geneva -- right?
