Zurich, Interlaken, Zermatt, Lausanne

This private luxury Switzerland tour moves quickly to allow travelers to experience top Swiss destinations and luxury hotels in a short amount of time.

Begin with a night in Zurich, one of Europe's most sophisticated cities. Next, transfer to Interlaken, stopping en route to tour Lucerne, a picture-perfect Swiss town on the shore of Lake Lucerne. With your private guide, explore the highlights of the Old Town. Cross Chapel Bridge, a landmark covered wooden bridge containing paintings of the city history, and walk the cobblestone streets to see the city's tiny squares and painted facades. Also learn about the city's history at the Musegg Wall, a portion of the old city walls, and walk along the tree-lined waterfront. Upon request, also visit museums such as the Kunstmuseum, Rosengart Collection or the Swiss Museum of Transport.

Continue to Interlaken, the gateway to the dramatic mountain landscapes of the Berner Oberland. One day, enjoy a privately guided excursion high into the Swiss Alps aboard mountain trains, passing through charming villages such as Lauterbrunnen, Wengen and Grindelwald en route to famed Jungfraujoch. Visit the Sphinx observatory platform, and take in spectacular views of enormous glaciers, impressive peaks and verdant valleys. Perhaps also opt for hiking, tubing, sledding or other activities on the snow. Alternatively, take cable cars high up to the Schilthorn—a peak made famous in the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service—for incredible views of the Jungfrau, Eiger, Monch and other peaks.

Transfer by private vehicle to Zermatt, and stay at a luxurious hotel with views of the Matterhorn, one of the most iconic mountains in the world. During private scenic touring of the region, take a cog railway up to Gornergrat for classic views of the Matterhorn. Another day, enjoy privately guided touring and hiking in the hills around Zermatt. Artisans of Leisure will arrange a lunch reservation at a restaurant with breathtaking views. Also tour the historic wooden buildings in the town center, and visit the Matterhorn Museum to learn about the traditional local lifestyle and the human drama surrounding the majestic mountain that looms over the region.

Continue with your private driver to Lausanne and the beautiful Lake Geneva region for a stay at the elegant Beau-Rivage Palace—one of the best luxury hotels in Switzerland—among lush parkland on the lakeshore. One day, take a private excursion in the surrounding region to visit Chateau de Chillon, Switzerland's most interesting castle, and Gruyeres, an atmospheric medieval hill town. During a hands-on cheese workshop, learn about cheese-making and taste local cheeses, including the region's renowned Gruyere cheese. Also enjoy reservations for a fondue or raclette lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants.

Other nearby options include touring a renowned chocolate factory; visiting Chaplin's World, the former house and estate of Charlie Chaplin; exploring the Olympic Museum or the historic center of Lausanne; touring the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux wine region; or spending time at the hotel's excellent spa, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Our family’s Switzerland trip was excellent. We enjoyed the variety of tours, destinations and activities. The meals were very special and the hotel views were incredible. Thank you for always paying attention to all of the details!

Our Switzerland honeymoon was incredible! We received 5-star treatment everywhere we went. Other companies we’ve used aren’t even comparable to Artisans of Leisure.
