8. Those who prefer to
enjoy a maximum of 2 or 3 places per day
rather than the mad touch-and-go rush of covering 5 places in 1 day. In
this way, you would have more time to look around, take good photos,
enjoy a cup of coffee or pastry in some villages or towns that we take
9. Those who want to optimise
views of the picturesque scenery
. View of the
panorama (e.g. mountains, beautiful landscape along the way) is not
always possible in Switzerland due to fog, low clouds etc i.e. scenery
may be blocked by clouds when you reach the top of the mountain (zero
visibility from the summit) or when you travel along the way to your
destination. However, all this can be avoided because different parts
of Switzerland can have different types of weather in one day. Tour 168
of Switzerland has the expertise and know-how to do optimise the view
e.g. travel according to weather conditions and shuffling itinerary etc
the benefit to our travellers

to conduct packaged tours in Switzerland.
3. Value for money
- you pay 50% more if you plan the same tour on your own. However, it
is highly unlikely that you are able to plan the same tours on your own
because you probably lack the local knowledge and the ability to speak
the language here.

about car rental and accommodation booking.

8. We will highlight
are happening in Switzerland near or at the places that you will be
going to and are able to shuffle your itinerary so that you are able to
go to these events/festivals if you are interested. Examples of these
are farmers' brunch (summer), chalandarmarz (end-winter where children
chase way the winter), sleigh dog race, knights' festival, folkdance
festival, bob sleigh or skeleton race (winter), horse-racing on frozen
lake, welcome-the-new-year festival, cows-going-on- or
-coming-back-from-summer-holiday procession etc.
9. Most importantly
as most of you are here for the picture postcard sceneries, you need
someone who is expert in travelling around Switzerland, not just
someone to drive and guide you (anybody can do this). You need someone
who is able to shuffle your itinerary according to weather so as to
avoid cloudy/rainy areas and go to places where the weather is nice
because different parts of Switzerland can have different types of
weather in one day due to the influence of 4 main European air currents
- the Northern Sub Polar, the Mediterranean South, the Eastern
Continent and the Atlantic. Sometimes, the whole of Switzerland can
have good weather (then you are very lucky) or bad weather (that is
when you need Tour 168 of Switzerland). Many travellers in Switzerland
are ignorant about travelling here e.g. when they reach the mountain
top, they are greeted by heavy clouds which block the panorama view,
thus providing ZERO visibility. Many travellers are caught unaware here
but it is already too late - your money has been wasted in expensive
Switzerland because you went up the mountain on the wrong day at the
