Travelers to Liechtenstein immediately notice the very special atmosphere of this small and sovereign state. The 100 square miles of the Principality constitute a wonderfully beautiful spot that stretches from the Rhine valley up to the mountain scapes of the alpine region.

Day 5

A short distance from our hotel in Lucerne, Pilatus Kulm, the world's steepest cogwheel railway winds up through lush meadows carpeted with Alpine flowers, past sparkling mountain streams and fascinating rock faces. At the top of the mountain, enjoy a meal while observing breathtaking vistas.

Day 6

Not many cities have managed to retain their historic features quite as successfully as Bern. The medieval air of this city with its many fountains, sandstone facades, narrow streets and historic towers is unique. Thanks to the arcades which extend throughout the town, shopping is a delight whatever the weather.

The Mürren Schilthorn area is a magnificent region to discover! The rich variety of alpine flora, combined with breathtaking views of snow-covered Bernese Alps, dominated by the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, guarantee you an absolutely unforgettable experience. After a day on the mountain, we will enjoy a relaxing dinner in Interlaken.

After breakfast and bidding farewell to Switzerland, transportation will be provided to the airport.

My trip to Scotland was amazing! There was something for everyone to enjoy. From the beautiful landscapes, sheep everywhere, botanical gardens, Queen's yacht & palaces, to beautiful old world cities and castles. We also toured a whisky distillery and St. Andrews golf museum, even a cruise on Loch Ness! The Scottish food and drink was delicious. I especially enjoyed exploring the old city of Edinburgh with its architecture and history, as well as the castles. Our tour supervisors were organized, knowledgable, friendly and helpful. They even made our longer travel days more enjoyable with games and fun facts. We had great guides and our driver for the week was fantastic. I am definitely going to continue to use them for my travel needs. I highly recommend this trip to everyone!
