I keep coming to Switzerland, to its unique nature, atmosphere and people. SwissSafari made my initial vacations so magical that I am living in the wake of its memories. They are very friendly, well connected, experienced, knowledgable and punctual. They will fit whatever requirements you may have. SwissSafari is developing year after year. They under promise and over deliver.

We were only in Geneva for two days, but Carmen did a wonderful job helping to organise tours for the time we would be there. Nothing was too much trouble and a lot of care and attention went into the planning. Our guide, Kurt, was terrific. He was a very nice person with wonderful knowledge of the areas we went to. He helped to make our stay very special. I would highly reccommend Carmen and Kurt when holidaying in Switzerland.

Dear Raelene,
Thank you very much for the review and the good rating.
I am very happy that we could make your short stay in Switzerland memorable. I have heard from Kurt that you had a fun time in the snow:-)!
Thank you again for having been our guests and all the best to you and to your family. It would be a pleasure to see again in my homeland.

I have no words to say that Carmen Aebi, was beyond expectations, if you are planning to visit Switzerland (or Europe, she can arrange tours with her colleagues) you have to choose her she knows exactly what she is doing, we have a problem with our luggage at the airport and she was very patient waiting for us taking care of everything, we feel very comfortable with her and our driver Richard he was also very patient and we feel him like a friend showing us the city, we are looking to visit again because of the great service and personal care. We feel like royalty with them, believe me it is worth the money.
We have also tours in other cities London and Rome.

Carmen hosted my family for a personalized tour of Switzerland. Her planning, and our guide's (Peter) attention to detail and personalized service exceeded our expectations and resulted in a fabulous vacation. They were very attentive to our personal interests and planned in a variety of activities that were great for us all. They even helped us work thruogh international flight cancellations and delays as we gathered in Zurich from various points in the US to start our trip. Recommend highly!!

Carmen and her company Swiss Safari was pure "class!" We had the privilege of having her as our guide and for our transfers from the train we took from Italy into Geneva. We got in pretty late at night and Carmen's service includes a 24 hour hotline/number to call if anything changes. We were all so exhausted from our long train ride and my 3-year old was passed out cold, that we took advantage of contacting Carmen at such a late hour to change our pick-up time for the next day. It was so convenient to have that contact number available for weary travelers. Upon meeting the next morning, Carmen had goody bags prepared for each and every one of us and a special one for my little daughter who not only enjoyed her Swiss chocolates and candies but adores her little Mumu the Cow plush keychain doll. Who doesn't like a complimentary box of Swiss made chocolates all to your self? We were all extremely touched by the kind gesture and such thoughtful gifts. From there, Carmen had a full day planned for us and the one thing I had asked was to be able to make it to a small Swiss village in the Alps. It was challenging since we had such a limited amount of time. However, Carmen was so thorough with how she was planning on making sure we were able to experience what we came to do--Geneva, the incredible fountain on the lake, Lake Geneva, Castle Chillon, the vineyards, Montreux (got to see Freddie Mercury's (of Queen) stature), and of course, the town of Gruyere where the cheese comes from. If there ever was a more picturesque country that literally looked like the postcards you see from the shops--Switzerland has to be hands down the MOST manicured and beautiful country EVER!! It's absolutely incredible how they can have vineyards along side these mountains and hills, perfectly manicured and of course, all has to be harvested/cultivated by hand as no machinery can operate at such an angle without tipping over. Carmen was extremely informative and such a pleasure to have around. She was extremely patient and accommodating with my large family. This being the last leg of our long vacation, everyone was pretty tired from this point on but, Carmen made everything so easy. She's an extremely careful driver who lives in the mountains. So, she's extremely adept to driving the winding roads of Switzerland, especially when heading towards the Alps. Seeing the Alpine farms sitting atop these steep mountains was amazing. They're all at, what seemed to be a bit of an angle, close to the edge of the mountainsides with no barrier. They apparently live just like the Heidi books--no electricity, no comforts of modern technology and the only time they come down from the mountains is to bring the cows down. Incredible! Everywhere we turned, it was an photo opp. Everything about Switzerland was just so breathtaking. Seeing Lake Geneva on a gorgeous Summer day when all the boats were out and you could see the French side of the Lake and even the German side of the lake, was a real memorable experience. So many different colored flowers everywhere! My daughter was in heaven. She wanted to pick flowers every where we turned. Carmen was kind enough to oblige her by picking a flower for her in the village of Gruyere, which by the way, was the most amazing Alpine village ever! The craziest thing was passing by H.R. Giger's museum and bar, which is in that town of all places. Apparently, he's from the town of Gruyere so, to be surrounded by such beauty and then, looking in the doorway of what looks to be the set of an Alien's movie but with swiveling bar chairs that looks like they're made of Alien's bones was something unexpected yet, nonetheless, quite fascinating. We thoroughly enjoyed Carmen's hospitality. She's warm, friendly, thoughtful and extremely informative. If you're looking for first class treatment from start to finish (vehicles included) then, I couldn't recommend Carmen Aebi and her company Swiss Safari more! Her vehicles were like new (very nice Mercedes vans/mini-vans), her knowledge on her country is first rate and so is her service--professional all the way! Thanks so much Carmen for all the lovely memories! We'll never forget our experiences.
