Thank you Sal

I was planning a tour for my mother’s first time visit to Switzerland and I am glad I found Sal! Sal was very responsive to my emails and questions and he helped design a perfect plan for our visit to Bern, Interlaken and Jungfraujoch etc. Sal is very friendly, attentive, helpful and not to mention a great photographer as well! He made our tour a very memorable and enjoying one! If you want to see Switzerland as if you are […]

Amazing Trip!

We recently spent 2 1/2 days of private touring with Sal. This was an amazing trip allowing us to see things we would not have seen on our own. We were able to enjoy the beauty while Sal drove us around. If we wanted to make stops he was glad to do so. I would highly recommend the trips to Mt. Rigi and Lake Como. Thanks for making this an awesome vacation for our family.

We had the absolutely best tour of Zurich and the surrounding countryside by Sal. Words can not express what a wonderful tour guide Sal was. He designed a tour specifically for our group. We had a couple of people in the group that had some mobility issues due to knee injuries and surgery so, he designed a tour that limited walking and stairs. He picked us up at the airport, delivered us to our hotel, gave us recommendations for restaurants […]

Unplanned adventures!

I cant find anything else to say about the operation that Sal runs that people before me have not already said, its a fantastic experience.
What a bloody great time we had, tour was suppose to be for around 4 hours, but due to the weather coming in the next day which would have cancelled that tour Sal extended the 4 hour one to about 9 hours so we could get the best out of the one day.

What kind of vehicle do you utilize?

Tour Vehicles

Our tour vans are Switzerland and EU compliant, registered Licenced Professional Vehicles, authorized for tour operation in Switzerland and European countries.

Our tours use American family-size, luxury minivans, with spacious six-passenger capacity; they are furnished with exceedingly comfortable leather seats.
Our vans are modern, WIFI enabled, well-equipped, fully insured, and optimally maintained.

We are obliged to undergo periodical vehicle safety controls, conducted by the Swiss Road and Transportation Authority; we stringently comply with their safety standards and requirements.

As many of our photography sightseeing tours are designed for unique destination trips, we often take local scenic routes in order to reach particular viewpoints that local tour buses cannot reach. For this reason, we do not conduct tours using buses or coaches, nor do we use vehicles that run on diesel fuel (vehicles that do not use unleaded gas), as these have limited restricted access to countryside destinations.

Additional Vehicles and/or Passengers

We can accommodate additional passengers, even when it will require additional vehicles. Kindly plan early, and contact us as soon as possible beforehand, to make your particular request.

Can we bring luggage with us?

Since we use a van on our tours, to keep your experience as comfortable as possible, regrettably, we cannot accommodate luggage. However, anything that you are comfortable having on your lap, or placing under your legs, is fine with us.

Is using a child seat mandatory in Switzerland?

We strictly adhere to Swiss regulation concerning use of a child seat. Below are the most important regulations concerning the transportation of children in Switzerland:

Babies and children must be correctly secured in a child’s car seat for their weight and age. The seat must bear the correct ECE security label. A proper restraint device (for example booster seats with or without back head support), which is admitted according to the ECE-convention Nr. 44, must be used on seats with 3-point safety belt for the transport of children. The first 2 digits of the verification code on the ECE-label must be 03 or 04.

Children under 12 years must sit in a special child seat if they are under 150 cm tall.

Children over 150 cm tall and children over 12 years of age must wear a seat belt.

On seats using pelvic restraints (older cars or minibuses), only children up to the age of 7 years must be secured using a children safety seat.

In principle children are allowed to sit on the front passenger seat regardless of their age. If your car is equipped with airbags, rear-facing car seats may only be used if the front airbag on the passenger’s side is deactivated.
