4 Reasons to Visit Switzerland

Posted on 28 December 2017 (0)

Switzerland is a rather small country compared to other giant European Nations. Nonetheless, its beauty and landscapes are far more astonishing than any other in the west. The infamous metropolitan cities such as Geneva and Zurich are the center of attractions for tourists visiting from around the world and is still not over-commercialized. The Swiss lands are like a large electromagnetic field for vacationers who want to explore countries in the winter, winters just beautify the Swiss topography by a hundred times making it unparalleled to many others. A Switzerland can result in an excuse to explore the rest of Europe just to marvel at its magnificence but here are four other reasons why you should make it a pit stop for your travel diaries.

  1. Too Stunning To Be Real Valleys

Switzerland is an anthology of electrifying waterfalls and gorges. For instance the Trumelbach Falls which are inside a mountain are sight for sore eyes. There are a thousand more equally stunning sceneries for an amazing backdrop for your travelling photo-albums. However, the best view of these valleys can only be achieved through the Swiss chairlifts that transports to you from one mountainous valley to the other suspended mid-air with thousands of feet between you and gravel.

  1. Mouthwatering Cuisines and Bonbons

Switzerland has surprisingly four different native languages which means that there is something special reserved for each clique the French, German, Romansh and Italian. They are scattered in different parts of Swiss terrain and have their own signature dishes such as the Saffron Risotto, Cheese Fondue and Landjager. The Swiss aboriginal chocolates are however, loved world-wide. You get to sample your very own bonbons, truffles, brigadeiros etc. and can even visit one of the four largest chocolate factories in Switzerland which are something much similar to the Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory with chocolate waterfalls and stuff.

  1. Everything Swiss Made

Another thing mostly admired about the Swiss are the things they craft besides the food of course. Swiss made watches are admired universally, their precision and quality is noteworthy not only because of their unique designs but the luxury they can add to the most trivial things. The Swiss architecture for example is beautiful even the simplest houses feel like castles torn out of fairytale pages. Their villages are absolutely remarkable with small exotic abodes that can be your most interesting country-side adventure.

 

  1. Animated Nightlife

Last but not the least the lively and energetic nightlife of the cosmopolitan Swiss cities is out-of-the-world amazing. Popular choices to enjoy a day out-that most of the time results in late evenings- are in Lausanne where there is a clubbing joint in alley. The bars, exquisite drinks, cocktails and vigorous bistros are with some club music in the background to groove to is a Swiss dream come true.

3 Benefits of Traveling in a Tour Group

Posted on 01 November 2017 (0)
  1. Safety

Travelling in group can often be a great advantage as the travelling agency who is in charge of your endeavors is the one who is in charge of everything else. This is a great thing for people who want to travel with their families, they obviously do not want their families to run here and there in search of food and shelter in a stranger land which is why tour groups are an excellent choice.

They offer safety and security of your treasured goods and your loved ones so that you won’t be held accountable if god forbid an accident occurs. It is actually an intelligent thing to hire a tour group because you will be surrounded by other families which makes it easier to make new friends in new country where you do not know anyone. Moreover, it guarantees that there will be other people to look over your family when you are not with them as they will be under the protection of the tour group. There is always a leader in a tour group you leave things over to and the greatest part is if you are young and want your parent’s permission a tour group will act as leverage.

 

  1. Organization

This is where tour groups succeed your flimsy vacation planning. Everything is pre-booked and pre-taken-care-of. Tour groups are very particular about planning their trips as they have about 10 to 15 people, at times more to take care of and the managers or guides take complaints very critically as poor service can lead to refunds. With everything pre-arranged you don’t have to run on last minute errands or go asking locals (that may speak a different language) for information or the closest hotel.

You never have to lift a finger to do anything, you are provided by guides that cater to your needs all along the duration of the trip. Your tickets are booked, you don’t have stand in long lines or waiting hours to go through that. Most things such as fare, food, hotel rent and many activities is already included in the pre-paid sum that tour groups procure, which means only an extra amount for private activities and shopping is required to carry with you. One less thing to worry about. The guides take care of everything, the food is on the table and provided for and hotel rooms are booked for in every city for you to sleep in any time.

 

  1. Saved Costs

Travelling in groups usually require the total expense of accommodation, food and travelling to be paid beforehand. For instance there are packages available for families which are a group of two or three or on a per person bases for a certain amount. These packages are quite cost affective and would probably cost you double if you were to go on your own.

Tour groups have managers and guides that tag along with the whole cluster, they have a plethora of local knowledge that may take us years to acquire along with fluency of a strange language. They are a great help in communicating with locals and mostly know the whereabouts of places where the most pocket-friendly things are available in good quality or maybe the best restaurant in the vicinity for a night out.
