Places We Have Been

Germany & Switzerland

We began our tour in Southern Germany and the Bavaria Alps. We explored the fantastic Neuschwanstein Castle, the very castle that inspired Walt Disney to design and create Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland park. We also visited another King Ludwig castle, the Linderhoff Palace.

We explored the beautify city of Innsbruck and traveled to Lake Constance, Lindau and Birnau. We continued on to stay for two nights in the infamous Black Forest region spending two nights in Triberg and enjoying an afternoon in beautiful Gengenbach. We then traveled to Interlaken where we spent our final 4 nights enjoying the ambiance of the area. While there we had the fantastic opportunity to stand on the Harder Klum platform to catch a breathtaking view of the entire Interlaken area. We enjoyed a delightful cruise, with lunch, on Lake Thun. The highlight of the trip was going to the top of Jungfrau Mountain, 11,333 feet above sea level.

We captured the beauty of the Alps, the views as we traversed up the mountain and of course actually walking out into -7 degree winter wonderland.

"Your flexibility and response to the group at large was very impressive!" (Robin Speidel-Tuscany trip)

"Fun, fun, fun! Great action. Well organized. Good ‘group control”. Sense of humor helped. Excellent trip with very little wait time. Great selection of tour sites and activities (and wine tasting)." (Mary Jo Keating-Tuscany Trip) 

 

"Wayne & Valerie were always responsive. We appreciated their daily visits to ‘check-up’ and address concerns. They did not ‘hover’ and were the perfect hosts. Loved their sense of humor. Both were the best ever. I’d love to adopt M.J. (our guide)." (Gloria Peterson-Alaska trip)
