1) As we would very much want our travellers to get the most out of our
tours, the sequence and/or parts of the content of the above itinerary
are subject to changes depending on weather conditions, forthcoming
special events and unforeseen circumstances.
Some tours are included as optional
tours because travellers MUST have the choice not to choose them in
case of bad weather. In Switzerland, views from the summit of mountains
are not always visible. Sometimes there is ZERO visibility
low or heavy clouds. If the optionals are included
tour price, then the mountain visit is a must-do even when the weather
is not suitable for a mountain visit. This would be unfair to
unaware traveller and it would be a wasted
trip. We always
check the weather one day before and advise our travellers
scheduled mountain visit would be good or
Otherwise, we either shuffle the itinerary and do the mountain visit
another day when the weather is good (as per forecast) or advise them
not to do it at all when the next days are not suitable for mountain
visits. For other optional tours like horse-carriage rides, thermal
pools, etc, some travellers might not want to do them for some reason
or some may have done them before.
3) If you have been to a few of the above-mentioned places but would
like to visit other not-to-be-missed places or experience some
interesting activities, we might be able to do some alteration. Do
write to us.
