The popularized image of Switzerland is almost too perfect and timeless: spectacular Alpine scenery, cozy mountain chalets, dazzling ski runs, window boxes spilling over with red geraniums, tidy cities set on serene lakes, elegant grand hotels. Though you'll undoubtedly encounter these along the way, they don't present a complete picture of this modern country. Switzerland may guard its neutrality and assert its independence, but it is very much an active participant in the world. If you're going for the scenery or for the skiing, there are few places that can equal it (in quality or high prices). And there are few places as clean, safe and orderly as Switzerland. Likewise, few countries have such diversity in terms of culture and language: German is prevalent in Zurich and the northern, central and eastern regions;

French in Geneva and the western region; Italian in Lugano and the southern region; and Romansh in St. Moritz and the southeastern region. Despite its varied cultures and linguistic traditions, Switzerland is one of the most politically and economically stable countries in the world. Sunview Travel and Tours includes visits to picturesque Lucerne, the delightful Alpine village of Grindelwald, and trendy Montreux, with many opportunities for hiking or other activities. This trip features travel by train from city to city as well an excursion aboard the popular “Chocolate Train,” with accommodations in charming first class hotels throughout.
